portable barber operation is a licensed registered barber or master hair care
specialist who has a Board-issued permit to provide barbering services in a
client's home or place of residence, either permanent or temporary, a client's
office or other place of business, wedding or other event venues, or other
locations as may be approved by the Board.
b. A licensed registered barber or master
hair care specialist may apply for a portable barbering operation permit by
submitting an application to the Board, along with the required fee. The permit
is renewed biennially. A portable barber must have a base of operations that is
either a registered barbershop or mobile barbershop.
c. A portable barber must have and provide
the following minimum equipment: a means of cleaning his or her hands prior to
beginning the service, a first aid kit capable of dealing with blood exposure,
sanitary capes or drapes, clean towels, sanitized and disinfected barbering
implements and tools, a closed container with a sufficient supply of either at
least a sixty percent alcohol solution or an EPA-registered disinfectant, and a
means of transporting clean and used implements separately. No equipment or
implement can be used on a subsequent client without it first being properly
cleaned, sanitized and disinfected.
d. A portable barber should not begin
providing a barbering service to a client without first verifying that there is
an adequate supply of hot and cold running water available on the premises to
safely and sanitarily complete the service to be provided.
e. A portable barber shall maintain a written
or electronic record of the street addresses where barbering services will be
provided during any two-week period at the designated base of operations. These
records are subject to inspection by the Board.
