I'm going through almost the same, but I would like to know how long did it take for you to get mailed the 6 months temporary license??? after you paid the $30 and got the 60 days license or permission.
thanks for your help I'll be waiting the answer.

It takes about 6 weeks before you get the license in the mail. I hand-delivered mine to the office in Manhattan, so it probably would've been longer had I mailed it.

You can also check this site to find out if your license has been processed:

Since you live close to the City also.......I did everything with my license directly at the office in Manhattan. I did print the form first, so unsure if they will give you the application there, but you can try. The address is 123 William Street(Dept of State). They print out a temporary letter while you are there good for like 45 days until your temporary reaches you in the mail.

You do know you can download a free adobe reader, right? Here is the link: get.adobe.com/reader/ If you are able to do that, the link to print out the Cosmetology application is: www.dos.state.ny.us/forms/licensing/0034-a.pdf

I'm not sure if there is a link where you can apply for an extension. I just got my license March of this year (got my temporary and one extension - went to the office both times). Good luck.

No, you have to go through school all over again. 10 yrs ago, what took you so long.

There is also Dept of Licensing office in Hauppaugue off Veterans Hwy if anyone is close.

I just got my official license today. Took the test practical on Dec 6th. I thought i failed. Everything went wrong after the haircut. I dropped things, I didn't get complete the perm waving and forgot to label a couple of bottles UGH. But I passed probably by the skin of my teeth.

If you haven't taken the written yet, its all about sanitation with a few questions about hair, nails and waxing peppered in. And when taking the practical, lable everything.

I'm going through the same exact thing. Has anybody found the answer to this question? I had a temp license 10 yrs ago and was wondering how, if possible, to retake all the tests. how long are our hours good for?

lisamarie in Cambria Heights, New York said: I applied for my temporary license 6 months ago. It expires Jan. 16, 2010. I passed my written exam, but have not taken my practical exam. I was told I can apply for one 6-month extension so I can work and during that time take my practical exam. Does anyone know the procedure for getting the extension? I live in New York City. When I got the first temporary license I physically went to a place in NYC with the application, paid the $30 and they gave me a letter good for 60 days and then sent me my temporary in mail. Do I need to print out a new application, have the school and my doctor sign it and repeat the entire process? Thank you.

how long it take

I received training in a salon in India, which I will be using to apply for license. I completed 1000 hours, as per the NY dept. requirement. Will they approve it or will I have to go to school here again? Also how do I apply? download the form and print it out and fill it and mail it with my certificates? Or deliver everything in person? All the documents, as in medical from a doctor and diplomas have to be original? Please advise! Thanks.
