Licensing, Registration, and Renewal

License Renewals Are Online:

The Board of Barbers and Cosmetologists and the New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department are implementing a new automated licensing system. This investment will simplify the licensing process, making it easier for licensees to renew licenses in New Mexico, eliminating paper forms and money orders, and cut down on staff time required to process, review, and renew licenses.
