Welcome to the NCBB website
The purpose of the Board is to issue a certificate of apprenticeship or registration to those individuals that meet the criteria of the Board. Individuals that meet the criteria of the Board must have completed 1528 class room hours and passed a written and practical exam and issued an apprentice license. The registered barber must have also completed a 12 month apprenticeship under the supervision of a registered barber and has passed a practical exam.
The Board ensures that no person or combination of persons shall, either directly or indirectly, practice or attempt to practice barbering in the State of North Carolina without first obtaining a certificate issued pursuant to provision of the General Statute by the State Board of Barber Examiners.
