Although the Board makes an effort to contact all registrants at time of renewal, it is the barber's responsibility to renew on time with or without renewal notice from the Board.
Certificates issued by the Minnesota Board of Barber Examiners are subject to a one year renewal cycle. Registered (Master), Instructor, and Barber School registrations expire annually ending on December 31st . Barber Shop registrations expire annually on June 30th.
All barbers must work in a registered barber shop. It is the responsibility of each barber to know that the shop is registered. An individual cannot work as a barber in Minnesota without a Minnesota registration, even if they have a registration in another state. It is the responsibility of the barber shop owner and designated barber (manager) to know that all the barbers in the shop are registered in Minnesota.
