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.
