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.
