(A) No person shall offer or render any of the services encompassed within the definition and rules of the board of cosmetology in a place that is not licensed as a salon or school except for a practicing licensee who applies for and receives a temporary special event permit. If the board grants a practicing licensee a temporary special event permit, the licensee may render the services for which the practicing licensee is licensed on a limited and temporary basis.
(B) Temporary special event permits shall be approved by the board. Temporary special event permits are only valid for one event lasting no more than one seven-day week, with the exception of licensees who are issued a temporary special permit under paragraph (D) of this rule. Multiple events require the licensee to apply for and receive a separate temporary special event permit for each event.
(C) The types of special events contemplated by this rule include, but are not limited to: charity events, on-location bridal parties, bridal shows and on-location spa parties. The board shall determine whether a special event that differs from the above-mentioned examples qualifies for a special permit. Individual licensees and salon licensees may request special event permits.
(D) Licensees may also perform non-chemical services in facilities lacking a cosmetology license, including private residences, care facilities, nursing homes lacking a licensed salon, hospitals, and other appropriate health care facilities where elderly or disabled patrons reside either temporarily or permanently. The licensee must fill out a board approved form as to the location of said service and submit it to the board along with a letter from a medical doctor in good standing in Ohio that will verify that the patron is either homebound or confined to a facility and physically unable to have services performed at a licensed salon in Ohio. The permit may be valid for up to one year.
(E) At a minimum, in the application for a temporary special event permit, the licensee must provide the type of event, date of event, time of event, location of event, and the names and license numbers of the licensees performing the services during the event.
(F) Licensees shall be responsible for ensuring that they are fully supplied and equipped when they perform services outside a licensed facility, in addition to ensuring compliance with the safety and infection control laws and rules of the board.
(G) The board expressly reserves the right to inspect special events at random and without notice.
