Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (225 ILCS 410/4-2) (from Ch. 111, par. 1704-2)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2026)
    Sec. 4-2. The Barber, Cosmetology, Esthetics, Hair Braiding, and Nail Technology Board. There is established within the Department the Barber, Cosmetology, Esthetics, Hair Braiding, and Nail Technology Board, composed of 11 persons, which shall serve in an advisory capacity to the Secretary in all matters related to the practice of barbering, cosmetology, esthetics, hair braiding, and nail technology.
    The 11 members of the Board shall be appointed as follows: 6 licensed cosmetologists, all of whom hold a current license as a cosmetologist or cosmetology teacher and, for appointments made after the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1996, at least 2 of whom shall be an owner of or a major stockholder in a school of cosmetology, 2 of whom shall be representatives of either a franchiser or an owner operating salons in 2 or more locations within the State, one of whom shall be an independent salon owner, and no one of the cosmetologist members shall be a manufacturer, jobber, or stockholder in a factory of cosmetology articles or an immediate family member of any of the above; one of whom shall be a barber holding a current license; one member who shall be a licensed esthetician or esthetics teacher; one member who shall be a licensed nail technician or nail technology teacher; one member who shall be a licensed hair braider or hair braiding teacher; and one public member who holds no licenses issued by the Department. The Secretary shall give due consideration for membership to recommendations by members of the professions and by their professional organizations. Members shall serve 4 year terms and until their successors are appointed and qualified. No member shall be reappointed to the Board for more than 2 terms. Appointments to fill vacancies shall be made in the same manner as original appointments for the unexpired portion of the vacated term. Members of the Board in office on the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1996 shall continue to serve for the duration of the terms to which they have been appointed, but beginning on that effective date all appointments of licensed cosmetologists and barbers to serve as members of the Board shall be made in a manner that will effect at the earliest possible date the changes made by this amendatory Act of 1996 in the representative composition of the Board.
    For the initial appointment of a member who shall be a hair braider or hair braiding teacher to the Board, such individual shall not be required to possess a license at the time of appointment, but shall have at least 5 years active practice in the field of hair braiding and shall obtain a license as a hair braider or a hair braiding teacher within 18 months after appointment to the Board.
    Six members of the Board shall constitute a quorum. A majority is required for Board decisions.

    Board members are not liable for their acts, omissions, decisions, or other conduct in connection with their duties on the Board, except those determined to be willful, wanton, or intentional misconduct.
