Domestic Violence Course


Available at America’s Beauty Show March 25-27, 2017

Effective January 1, 2017, the Cosmetology Renewal License Domestic Violence Course became law, requiring Illinois salon professionals to complete a one-time, one-hour awareness training about domestic violence and sexual assault for license renewal.

Cosmetologists Chicago (CC) worked closely with Chicago Says No More a coalition of agencies serving those affected by domestic violence and sexual assault and Illinois legislators for almost two years to ensure this requirement would:

1) not take away from the technical and business education salon pros need to pursue their careers, and

2) not hold cosmetologists liable for any action, or inaction, relating to domestic violence or sexual assault information provided to a client, family or friends.

Curriculum for the program, Listen. Support. Connect. is designed exclusively for salon professionals, and developed by experts in domestic violence/sexual assault and Cosmetologists Chicago.

Cosmetologists Chicago has the exclusive right to offer this one-hour training during America’s Beauty Show March 25-27, 2017 at McCormick Place. The one-hour training classes and CEUs will be offered free with admission to America’s Beauty Show.
