Cosmetologist Salary and Projected Job Growth in Ohio


Average yearly salary for cosmetology in Ohio

The average cosmetologist in Ohio earns an annual salary of $31,750 per year, or $15.26 per hour. This is below the national average of $35,990 per year ($17.30 per hour). But the cost of living in Ohio is also lower than the national average, so a smaller wage is potentially less of a concern here than in more expensive areas.

The amount a cosmetologist can earn varies greatly depending on factors such as the geographical area in which they're based, the services they offer, where they work, and their experience level.

Metro Area 2021 Median Salary
Cincinnati, OH-KY-IN $29,540
Columbus, OH $29,220
Dayton, OH $29,160

Akron, OH $28,550

Table information sourced from the O*Net (2022).

On a less-positive note, job growth for cosmetologists in Ohio has stalled, with a predicted rise of 0% overall predicted between 2020 and 2030. However, this expected rate doesn't include estimates of people who may retire or leave their careers for other reasons and need others to replace them.

What to Expect from a Cosmetology Program in Ohio

1,500 Education Hours

Required to earn a cosmetology license

  • Dispensary requirements and operations

2. Properties of the Hair and Scalp (120 hours)

Like the students who attend them, all cosmetology schools must gain and keep their licenses to continue working. In addition, they must abide by the standards set forth by the state cosmetology board. If they don't, they can have their licenses revoked.

Cosmetology Apprenticeships in Ohio

There is no approved way to gain licensure as a cosmetologist in Ohio via an apprenticeship.

Ohio Cosmetology Licensing Requirements

Once you've completed 1,500 hours of training, you should be ready to advance to the next stage of the process to achieve licensure. To obtain licensure in Ohio, all cosmetology students must take (and pass) theory and practical exams. You must sign up for these on the state board website and pay a $40 sign-up fee per exam.

The cosmetology theory exam comprises 100 multiple-choice questions and takes 90 minutes to complete. The questions cover the following subject areas:

  • Infection Control and Safety: 24%
  • Product Knowledge and Chemistry: 5%
  • Implements, Tools, and Equipment: 8%
  • Anatomy and Physiology: 27%
  • Haircare and Services: 22%
  • Skincare and Services: 7%
  • Nailcare and Services: 7%

The practical exam is split into the following timed sections:

  • Setup and Client Protection (15 minutes)
  • Thermal Curling (untimed)
  • Haircutting (30 minutes)
  • Chemical Wave (20 minutes)
  • Hair Color Retouch (10 minutes)
  • Foil Highlighting (10 minutes)
  • Relaxer Retouch (10 minutes)
  • Chemical Virgin Relaxer (10 minutes)
  • Facial/Manicure Setup (15 minutes)
  • Cleansing/Facial Massage (5 minutes)
  • Manicure (20 minutes)

On the day of your exams, you must arrive before your start time. If you arrive late, you won't be allowed to enter, must give up your exam fee, and have to reschedule (and pay a rescheduling fee of $45 per exam or $90 for both).

You must bring at least one form of government-issued current photo ID to every exam. You must also wear appropriate clothing and perform all parts of the practical exam on a mannequin head—live models aren't allowed. Both exams used to be available in multiple languages, but as of August 1, 2019, they're available in English only. Therefore, all supplies must also be clearly labeled in English.

The state board follows the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in providing special accommodations for candidates who require help. If you feel that you need extra help to be able to take either exam, you can request it.

You must score at least 75 on both exams to pass. If you don't pass either exam on your first attempt, you may retake them as often as needed. You must pay a fee of $31.50 for each retake.

Ohio Cosmetology Licensure Reciprocity

If you currently hold a valid cosmetology license in another state, you may be eligible to obtain an Ohio license through reciprocity. To apply for reciprocity, submit an application and pay a non-refundable fee of $73.50. You must also prove the following:

  • You have held an active cosmetology license (or equivalent) for at least one year.
  • You've completed at least 1,200 training hours from a licensed cosmetology school.
  • You have taken (and passed) both theory and practical exams at a facility managed by a centralized body that governs licensure.

You must complete Ohio's practical and theory exams if you've held your license for less than one year. Otherwise, you shouldn't need to retake your exams.

Active-duty military personnel and their spouses may also transfer their out-of-state cosmetology licenses for use in Ohio by filling out this application.

Cosmetology Specialties in Ohio

In addition to the standard cosmetology procedures license allows you to perform in Ohio, there may be other services you wish to offer your clients that need an additional license.

For example, you may wish to complete a 450-hour natural hair license and specialize in working with black hair. Cities such as Cincinnati and Columbus provide ample opportunities for specialized careers and present plenty of options for cosmetologists who take the time to pick up additional skills.

License Renewal

2 Years

License renewal period

4 Hours

Continuing education required

All Ohio cosmetology licenses expire on January 31st of every odd-numbered year, meaning they must be renewed every two years. Renewals cost $55.

You don't need to complete continuing education (CE) hours for your first renewal period. You must still pay the $55 renewal fee, however.

After your first license renewal, you must complete a prescribed amount of CE each time you renew. Currently, this is set at 4 hours, consisting of the following:

  • 1 hour concerning state board laws and rules
  • 3 hours concerning safety and infection control

If you fail to pay your renewal fee for two consecutive periods (four years), your license moves to a "lapsed" status. To reactivate a lapsed license, you must pay all delinquent and current licensing fees and complete the required number of CE hours missed, based on how long your license has been lapsed.

If you’re over 65 or have been licensed for over 30 years, you don't need to complete any CE to renew your license.
