Hairstylist moved to USA on K1 visa - Need advice please!

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I moved to New York in August of last year on a K1 visa. I finally got my employment authorisation through on the 24th of December and I'm trying to apply for my Hairstylist licence here. I only currently have my Diploma level 1 and NVQ Diploma level 2 certificates and to apply for the licence I need all three of the following:

(1) a school certificate;

(2) a school transcript listing subjects and hours completed;


(3) a current, original Certification of Licensure from your state board or, if not licensed, a current Certification from your state's board verifying the hours claimed.

I believe the certificate I have covers part 3 and I've emailed my school to try and ask them for the other two but the only thing they've sent me is a copy of my learning agreement which states how many hours/weeks I agreed to complete.
My question is, are there any other UK originated hairdressers or NVQ qualification holders on here that can help me figure out what paperwork I need and where to get it?
Thank you.
