Lawyers Defending Hair Stylists and Barbers Against Disciplinary Action in DuPage County

Cosmetology is often an underappreciated occupation, but hair stylists, barbers, nail technicians, and estheticians put a great deal of work into their career, receiving the necessary training, using the latest tools and techniques, and ensuring that they are providing the best possible services for their clients. After striving to establish themselves as a trustworthy, respected stylist, no cosmetologist wants to face potential disciplinary action that could result in the suspension or revocation of their license.

At Kathryn L. Harry & Associates, P.C., we understand how hard you have worked to build your career as a cosmetologist, and we know how upsetting it can be when you are facing investigation that may result in the loss of your license. Our attorneys can work with you to defend your license against any disciplinary action and ensure that you are able to continue making a living.

Grounds for Disciplinary Action

The Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation (IDFPR) governs cosmetology licenses, abiding by the statutes of the Barber, Cosmetology, Esthetics, Hair Braiding, and Nail Technology Act of 1985. This law lists several possible grounds for disciplinary action, including:

  • Criminal conviction - This includes being convicted of a felony, a misdemeanor involving dishonesty, or a crime related to the practice of cosmetology.
  • False statements - Cosmetologists can be disciplined for filing false reports or records or soliciting services through misleading advertising.
  • Financial issues - A cosmetologist may face disciplinary action if they have paid or received compensation for services which were not actually rendered, or if they fail to file a tax return or pay required taxes.
  • Substance abuse - Discipline can result from excessive, habitual use of drugs or alcohol which results in a cosmetologist being unable to perform services with reasonable, skill, judgment, and safety.
  • Unprofessional conduct - This can include any actions performed with the intent of deceiving or harming the public, practicing cosmetology while knowingly having an infectious disease, or gross malpractice or incompetence.
