DPOR Board for Barbers & Cosmetology | Guidance Document – License Required for Certain Procedures


On February 6, 2017, DPOR (Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation) Board for Barbers and Cosmetology released a guidance document highlighting “License Required for Certain Procedures”.  The announcement covers important license information required to perform eyelash extensions,  eyebrow embroidery / microblading, and microneedling.

The announcement notes:

“Interpretation of what license is required to perform eyelash extensions, eyebrow embroidery / microblading, and microneedling under Code of Virginia §54.1-700 et.seg.

Applying eyelashes, as referenced in §54.1-700, refers to applying any natural or synthetic extension to an individual’s natural eyelashes. This practice may be known as eye tabbing or eyelash extensions.  These services require a cosmetology or esthetics license.

Strip, band, or bundle eyelashes, which adhere to the skin, are services that are ancillary to makeup, and exempted under §54.1-701.10.

Microblading, also called eyebrow embroidery, refers to the application of semipermanent ink to the skin of the eyebrow. This practice, when performed with a needle or group of needles, requires a tattooing or permanent cosmetic tattooing license.  Microblading performed with a scalpel is beyond the scope of licensure and should not be performed by a licensee of the Board.

Microneedling, also know as dermarolling, is the application of a series of needles on a roller device used to stimulate collagen production.  This practice is beyond the scope of licensure and should not be performed by a licensee of the Board.”
