Important Reminder -

The Board office has received numerous complaints regarding animals in the Salon.  As a reminder, per the Wyoming Rules and Regulations:

Chapter 10, Section 4 (d)

  • No dogs, cats, birds, fish, or animals of any kind shall be allowed on premises designated as a salon or school.  Seeing eye, guide, or services dogs for impaired persons are permitted.  Therapy dogs are not permitted.

This applies to Owners, Employees, and Clients.

Barbicide Jars

It has come to the attention of our inspectors that the Barbicide Jar on the stations are not being used within the states infection control polices, or manufacturer's directions.  First note that Wyoming Rules and Regulations do not require you to use these Jar’s on your station, but if you choose to the following procedures must be followed:

  1. All items to be disinfected must first be cleaned of all debris and washed with soap and water
  2. Items are then completely immersion in a disinfectant that has been mixed and used according to manufacturer’s direction
  3. Items then must be stored in a disinfected, dry covered container

You may use the jar’s empty and place combs and other tools in the jar until you are able to follow the steps above, or soapy water could be used.  If you are going to put disinfectant in the jar all items must be cleaned prior and the disinfectant must be mixed and changed according to manufacturer’s directions.

Independent Contractor Inspection Sheets

All independent contractors should have an inspection sheet completed and signed both by the licensee and the salon owner.  It is the salon owner's responsibility to have a inspection sheet on the premises for each contractor.  The inspection sheet will aid the inspectors if a contractor is not available during an inspection.  

90 Day Grace Period

Working on a expired or lapsed license is considered non-licensed practice.  Any grace period associated with a license is to delay late fee, and does not continue the license.
