Reciprocity Information

If you are licensed in another state, you may be eligible for reciprocity. Reciprocity is Nevada's recognition of your license in aesthetics, cosmetology, hair braiding, hair design, nail technology and your license to instruct from another state, district, territory, or country.

In order to be eligible for reciprocity in the State of Nevada, your license must be active and in good standing in another state. Applicants must complete an Individual Application and submit the required information and pass a 25-question Nevada State Law Test with a 75% or higher to become licensed.

Please Note: Nevada does not recognize Florida licenses titled Facial Specialist or Full Specialist. The scopes of practice for these licenses are not comparable to a license in the State of Nevada.
