We are a non-profit organization, registered under IRS  501(c)(3), authorized to operate the Apprenticeship Program under the California Department of Industrial Relations  (DIR) and following the Board of Barbering and Cosmetology (BBC) regulations.

Our association is integrated by members of the Beauty Industry, including employers, apprentices, professionals and other individuals interested in helping and bringing training and study opportunities to minorities who want to integrate into the Beauty Industry, Barbering or Cosmetology.

Apprentices can work on a beauty salon, receiving compensation under all law regulations, and are granted an apprentice license from the State of California.

Our organization works through contributions, which come from employers, students, sponsors and voluntary contributions.

All funds contributed to SCCBEA are invested on educational resources and materials that comply with the most recent state laws and regulations


Has transformed the lives of our members by working together with employers, trainers and apprentices.


If you have an establishment that offers beauty services, you can become an Employer member, that allows having licensed apprentices working full time for you, paying them a salary or commission for up to 40 hours a week.  Apprentices have a license for two years from the issue date.




Annual employer contribution for SCCBEA Membership is $175


Members under the trainer category, that have a professional Barber or Cosmetology license can train licensed apprentices in an establishment, sharing their talents and knowledge, and at the same time receive all the benefits of the apprenticeship program and SCCBEA.

Trainers do not have a mandatory contribution for SCCBEA membership.


All apprentices under the Cosmetica Cosmetology and Barbering Unilateral Committee must:

  • Be registered with SCCBEA.

  • Have a registered trainer.

  • Have a certified establishment to work in.

  • Have an active Apprentice license.

This allows the Apprentice to train at the establishment, and earn a salary with all the perks and benefits that the law allows. 

Apprentices do not have a mandatory contribution in order to be part of SCCBEA.


In most every business, you learn by doing. The apprenticeship model is much more effective than the classroom for cultivating entrepreneurs.
