The Florida Barbers Board was created by the Florida Legislature in the best interest of public health, safety, and welfare to regulate the practice of Barbering in this State. The board has a legal duty to ensure that all barbers in the state meet the minimum legal requirements. It is up to the Board to make the determination to certify you are eligible to practice barbering.

Section 476.144 (1) Florida Statutes states that the Department (DPBR) shall license any applicant who the board certifies is qualified to practice barbering in this state.
