Any physical location dedicated to providing cosmetology, esthetics, nail technology, hair braiding, or barbering services, including but not limited to kiosks, trailers or motor vehicles, is subject to registration. The Division may reject any application including a business name that states or implies a service that cannot be legally offered by the business, which is misleading to consumers, or is otherwise inconsistent with the purposes of the Act.

d)         Change of Ownership.  When the ownership of a salon or shop changes, the new owner shall, within 5 working days after the date of sale, file with the Division an affidavit stating that the sale is contingent on a certificate of registration being issued to the new owner.  If this is not provided, the salon or shop must close and remain closed until a certificate of registration is issued to the new owner.  The new owner shall obtain a certificate of registration from the Division as set forth in subsection (a).

 

e)         Change of Name.  The owner shall file written notice with the Division at least 30 days in advance of the change of name of a salon or shop.  The notice shall include the owner's name and signature, date, FEIN, previous name of salon or shop, address of salon or shop, new name of salon or shop and effective date of change.  The notice shall be accompanied by the original certificate of registration, a $20 reprint fee, and if using an assumed name, a certificate from the county clerk's office where the assumed name is filed or a certificate from the Illinois Secretary of State showing authorization to transact business under the assumed name.
