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.
