South Dakota Cosmetology Commission


South Dakota requires 1,500 hours of education for cosmetologists, 600 hours for estheticians and 400 hours for nail technicians. The basic education requirements for various licenses are listed in Licensing Requirements.

In order to renew a cosmetology, esthetician or nail technician license that has been expired for more than five years, a safety and infection control review course is required. Contact the Commission if you need the course. We offer a review course taught by the cosmetology inspector in your area. The course costs $50.
