Maryland Cosmetology Information and Downloads

Update 6/9/15: Prometric’s contract to provide cosmetologist and barber test administration services for the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation and associated Boards ended on 5/31/15 and we are no longer administering exams. Any applications received at Prometric offices will be returned. Refunds will be provided to any candidates who paid for exams but could not test before the contract end date; please go to and complete the refund request form. Contact the Department and/or the Board for information on current testing options.

Effective Immediately, the Maryland Board of Cosmetology has temporarily suspended the scoring of Blood Spill for all candidates who simulate a Blood Spill. Instead raters will provide feedback to help candidates understand their strengths and weaknesses and to seek additional training if necessary. There will be further communication shared to all MD Cosmetology candidates as the Board evaluates its options. Be advised that if an actual blood spill occurs during the practical exam, the candidate will be required to stop immediately and perform the correct blood spill procedures on him/herself. This will be graded on a pass/fail basis as a critical component.
