Frequently Asked Questions

Which do you think is better, Milady cosmetology questions or Pivot Point cosmetology questions?

I think they are equally good - but each contains different information - and I KNOW  the State Board Exam uses both books to create the Cosmetology State Board Exam. I also know we are the only company to provide you with the cosmetology questions from both textbooks.

 As an instructor in a large franchise school, I have quite a few students who will be taking their exams in other states, I am curious to know if you have the questions & answers for the Cosmetology, Barber, Esthetician, and Manicurist test for all 50 states?

Yes we do. Why not give us a call at: 760-534-4434.

2) The Florida barber licensing exam has 100 multiple choice questions.

3) The licensing exam is administered by Pearson Vue (1-888-204-6289).

4) All the questions on the exam can be found on our website at: www.cosmetologystateboardexam.com

Do you have the esthetician questions for the esthetician Florida state board exam?

Florida does not have an Esthetician State Board Licensing Exam. To obtain an Esthetician License in Florida requires: completing 260 hours at an approved school, passing an exam designed by THAT school, and successfully completing a State Board approved HIV/AIDS course.  For additional information, you can log onto: www.myfloridalicense.com

Do you have the 2021 California State Board Exam Esthetician questions?

Yes we do

Why are your cosmetology, esthetician, and barber study guides $10 more expensive of Amazon.com?

Amazon.com adds $10.04 to the price of our materials as their percentage cut.

I spent a lot of money in school and I have failed the multiple choice part of my Esthetician Exam twice. I need to pass this test before March 31, 2021, but there are so many companies advertising study materials.

We are tempted to say "We Feel Your Pain", but nobody really feels the pain of another. Having said that, here are some things to consider regarding 'so many companies ...'

Cpt Guru is located in Hong Kong China.

ProProfs is located in Mumbia India.

MoMetrix is located in Houstin Texas and sells questions & answers for Real Estate, Accounting, Nursing, Architecture, Auto Mechanics, and many others.

We are located here in the USA and only sell questions & answers for Cosmetology, Barbering, and Esthetics. Our address and phone number are listed on our website and we answer the phones in both English & Spanish.

Where do the questions found on Quizlet.com cosmetology questions come from? And are they the same as PIC and NIC?

The questions found on quizlet.com cosmetology questions have nothing to do with PSI or NIC. They come from the Milady cosmetology question textbook. But be careful, because the cosmetology state board exam uses questions from both Milady and Salon Fundamentals / Pivot Point. The questions are different, and because of these differences, quizlet.com canNOT fully prepare you to pass you exam.

Tienes los examenes de cosmetologia y estetica traducido al espanol, Milady y Salon Fundamentals?

Si.

How do you have the 2021 California Esthetician Practice Test Questions in December 2020?

The 2021 California Esthetician Exam Questions are already available to exam preparation companies; however, many companies choose to withhold these questions until after Christmas because they know educational sales are slow over the holiday season, then sky rocket in January. So they wait until they can receive the biggest bang for their advertising buck.

If I have a California Cosmetology License and move to Florida, will I need to take the 2021 Florida Cosmetology Exam?

The answer to your question depends upon how long you have been licensed in California and how long you have actively worked in the industry. Florida has a program called "Endorsement", and if you qualify, you will NOT be required to take the 2021 Florida Cosmetology Exam.

Do you have the site address for the Florida State Board of Cosmetology?

Yes we do and it is probably the most logical address of all 50 states: www.myfloridalicense.com

I am taking the 2021 California Esthetician Exam in February, but I am confused between NIC and PSI.

PSI stands for 'Professional Services International' and Administers licensing Exams for about 37 states in the areas of Cosmetology, Barbering, Esthetics, and Nails. NIC Creates / Writes the Exam, both Theory and Practical, for about 42 states in the areas of cosmetology, barbering, esthetics, and nails.

My son will be taking the Texas Barber Exam and I need study materials for that test.

We have the questions & answers available for the 2021 Texas Barber Exam. If you have any additional questions, you can give us a call at: 760-534-4434.

Or visit the Texas Board of Barbering website at: www.tdlr.com

Your company is located in California, but do you have the Esthetican practice exam questions for any other state?

Our corporate headquarters are located in California, but we also have  offices in several other states. More importantly, we have the 2021 Cosmetology practice test questions,  2021 Barber practice test questions,  2021 Esthetician practice test questions, and 2021 Manicure practice test questions for all 50 states, D.C., and Puerto Rico.

What is the difference between your material and material from companies like Cpt Guru?

We are a American company providing you with the questions & answers that will be found on the 2021 cosmetology exam, 2021 barber exam, 2021 esthetician exam, or 2021 manicure exam  in your state.

Cpt Guru www.cosmetologypracticetest.guru is a Chinese company located in Hong Kong. We suggest before purchasing study materials from ANY company, you pick up the phone and speak with a representative from that company. On sites such as ours, Easy Pass and Mometrix you will find their addresses and phone numbers; you will NOT find any of this information on the Cpt Guru website.

Do you have information on Paul Mitchell Schools in Central California? And do you think they are worth the high cost compared with other cosmetology schools?

There are at least 9 Paul Mitchell Cosmetology schools in California, with 2 in the Central area: Modesto and Fresno.  For more information, log onto: www.paulmitchell.edu

Regarding price, Paul Mitchell does tend to be more expensive than most other schools. As to whether the added expense is worth it - we cannot say other than to point out that the results you will likely get out of any school are directly related to the effort you apply. 

Finally, California makes it simple to compare school pass rate results, just log onto: www.barbercosmo.ca.gov  and look under "SCHOOLS, Pass Rate".

I am a teacher at a school in Los Angeles California and the pass rate on our Cosmetology State Board is depressingly low.  How are the 2021 cosmetology practice test questions in your study-guide different from the ones found in the Milady study-quide?

As a teacher you have probably noticed that the questions & answers found in the Milady practice test book are the same year-after-year, but the questions on the Cosmetology Exam are different every year - especially on the 2021 Cosmetology State Board Exam. We provide the new questions that will be on the 2021 Cosmetology Exam, 2021 Barber Exam, 2021 Esthetics Exam, and 2021 Manicure Exam.

In short, If the school wants the students to pass their 2021 Cosmetology Exam, the school cannot continue to give them 2019 questions to study.

On another site it says State Boards use Milady to create their exam, but at my school we use the Salon Fundamentals book. Our school has a low pass rate, why would our school use a book that is not on the Cosmetology State Board Exam?

You raise an important question, and unfortunately the answer is long. The OTHER site is Miladypro.com and the sentence says: "State Boards Utilize Milady To Create Their Tests". This is a true statement - as far as it goes. But they did NOT say the Cosmetology State Board Exams ONLY use Milady, although they hope that is the impression you will get - and apparently you did. 

Most nail, esthetician, barber, and cosmetology State Board Exams use a test created by NIC, and to create the exam NIC uses at least 2 textbooks: Milady (Cengage) and Salon Fundamentals (Pivot Point).

Here is the short answer:

1) Both are excellent books.

2) Both are used to create the cosmetology State Board Exam.

3) Both contain different information

My husband has just retired from the military and we will be moving to Rancho Mirage California soon. Once there, I will be required to take the 2021 California Esthetician Exam; can you help me; I'm a bit old for all the studying!

Best of luck to you, Rancho Mirage is a beautiful area. That said, we have all the 2021 California Esthetician Practice Exam and Test Questions.

Why are there so many questions on here about the 2021 California Cosmetology Exam or 2021 California Estheticians Exam, there are other states.

I guess it is because of 2 things:

1) 2021 is so close.

2) California has so many people. More people, more questions.

Why are the practice questions on ProProfs free while everyone else charges?

www.proprofs.com offers Free questions for cosmetology, barber and estehetics because they make their money when you Click-On any of the pop-ups that appear on their site. Most other companies do not allow pop-ups and make money only if you purchase their cosmetology practice test questions and answers.

Additionally, understand that the questions & answers on www.proprofs.com  are posted by students and are not always correct or up-to-date.

An old proverb says: The value of anything is about equal to what you paid for it". Put more simply: You Get What You Pay For, Buyer Beware (caveat emptor).

My daughter is Dyslexic and we have spent hours on hold with the California State Board of Cosmetology listening to a recorded voice tell me how important we are, and hours on their website: www.barbercosmo.ca.gov.  All I want to know is how do I get permission to bring someone to read her written exam to her.  

As the result of Covid-19 it has become almost impossible to speak with anyone in Sacramento; and although the website is excellent, it can be overwhelming. If you give us a call, one of our representatives will walk you through the California State Board website and show you where to make your request under 'Special Accommodations'- they will almost always grant it.

How many questions are on the California State Board Exam?

Cosmo = 100, Barber = 65

To learn more about the exam, log onto the California Board of Barbering and Cosmetology (Examination Bulletin) at: www.barbercosmo.ca.gov

I moved to Florida and do not qualify for Endorsement and must take the  exam. But I am confused by the Florida Cosmetology Clinical Exam.

The 2021 Florida Cosmetology Exam is divided into 2 parts: Theory & Clinical. Both have 65 questions. 34% of the Written Theory is on Safety & Sanitation; 39% of the Written Clinical is on Hair Coloring & Lightening.

What are your thoughts on www.tests.com?

It seems that almost everyday we receive emails from students asking our opinions regarding different companies selling their products on Google; and sometimes offering their products for Free. So here goes:

1) www.proprofs.com A company based in Mumbi India. They offer their products for Free (Great); but their questions & answers are posted by students who may not know the correct answers (Not Great), and the site bombards you with Pop-Ups of unrelated things for sale - and people buy these things, we know this because if they didn't buy them Proprofs would be out of business.

2) www.tests.com This is a Pennsylvania company that sells study materials for about 100 different exams including: Acupuncture, Auto Mechanics, Firefighters, Paramedics, Real Estate, and Welding. 

A bit of this and a bit of that - like a Buffet, lots of food but none of it is very high quality.

Wouldn't you prefer a company that only deals with Cosmetology, Barbering, and Skin Care?

3) www.moetrix.com A Texas based company offering another Buffet Style approach; this one specializing in Architecture, Real Estate, and the related Building Trades (plumber, carpenter, electrician, etc.).

Which one of those State Board Exams will you be taking?

4) www.cptguru.com  A company located in Hong Kong, China with no address or telephone number on their site. Try getting your Money Back after you Fail your State Board Exam. Who you gonna call - Ghost Busters?

5) www.cosmetologystateboardexam.com Based in California, with offices in Florida, and Texas, this 39 year old American company limits itself to offering exam preparation Questions & Answers in the areas of Barber, Cosmetology, Esthetics, and Manicure  / Nail Technology. Most of their products come with a Money Back Guarntee and their address and telephone number are posted on their website.
