Welcome to the Kansas Board of Barbering website. We hope you find this site to be a useful resource whether it be for information about barbering in Kansas, our statutes and regulations, or providing you the ability to renew and restore licenses online.

KBOB Board meetings are held by conference call the first Thursday of each month at 1PM. Please use 785-296-2211 to call into the Board meetings.

We welcome your input, comments, and suggestions by survey, letter, email, phone, or fax.

If you are a graduate of any of our Kansas Barber Colleges and need to re-test on your practical or written exams or you have completed your 1500 hours of instruction but have not taken the Exams please contact the Board Office for guidance.


Barber, Instructor, Shop and School licenses are available for online renewal. A convenience fee will be added to your online renewal at checkout.  If you are uncertain the amount you should pay for reinstatement contact the board office at 785-296-2211.

Pursuant to K.S.A. 65-1817 and K.A.R. 61-7-2, additional fees must be charged when filing an application for restoration of an expired license.  If you are applying for restoration of your expired barbering license and do not know the correct fee amount, please contact us at 785-296-2211.  Any application accompanied with the incorrect fee will be deemed incomplete and will not be processed.
