The State of NJ requires a license to practice as a skin care professional. In order to qualify for a license as a Skin Care Specialist, you must graduate from Shore Beauty School in good standing, having completed the full 600 hours of your program. Further, the NJ State Board of Cosmetology & Hairstyling requires graduates to pass both written and practical examinations with scores of 75 or better on each exam to fully qualify for NJ State licensing. The State Board will not schedule the practical portion of the exam until the written exam has been passed. Temporary Work Permits are available to graduates after passing the written portion of their exams, allowing them to work for six months prior to receiving their licenses.
