If you fail to renew your license before the expiration date, your license expires. It is illegal to practice in Delaware while your license is expired. To resume practicing in any of the Cosmetology/Barbering license types listed below, you must either renew or reinstate your license.
You may apply for reinstatement if your license in one of the following license types has been expired for over five years:
