Build Networks – Stay Informed – Eduction for Educators – Make Your Voice Heard

The New York State Beauty School Association has been a forerunner in the Beauty Education Industry since its inception in 1933.


The NYSBSA monitors regulation and rule changes that affect our schools. We provide members with up-to-the-minute accounts and interpretations of these changes. A team of NYSBSA representatives along with our lobbying firm, March, Wassermann and McHugh LLC, support member schools, educators and students on legislative issues.


With our long history and diligent work over the years we have established relationships on state and national levels.

Our association must keep moving forward and our relationships with the state education department (New York State Education Department), the national beauty school association (American Association of Cosmetology Schools) and the national accrediting commission for beauty schools (National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts & Sciences) will help us meet the future with confidence.


We believe strongly in quality professionals and it all begins with education.

The NYSBSA sponsors continuing education for instructors on a quarterly basis as well as an annual instructors’ seminar held in NYC, with speakers that not only inform but motivate our instructional teams.
