Please be specific when filling out the barber complaint form.

The Arizona Barbering and Cosmetology Board investigates complaints involving unlawful acts including false advertising, deceptive statements, violations of health and sanitation regulations, employment of unlicensed persons for professional services and incompetence and/or malpractice. If you feel you have been the victim of any of the above, please submit an online complaint.

Law prohibits us from giving you legal advice, legal opinion or action as your private attorney. If you have suffered or may suffer a significant monetary loss, you should contact a private attorney to discuss your legal rights and remedies. If you don't have a private attorney, the County Bar Association's Lawyer Referral service should be consulted or the local Legal Aid Society may be able to assist you.

Upon receipt of your complaint, we will determine if your complaint comes under our authority. If it does, we will take the action possible under our statutory authority. If your complaint does not fall under our authority, we will refer you to the appropriate agency.

On the complaint form, you will need to check the box indicating that you would like to receive an update of the final outcome of the case.
