HLO Closed to Public Walk-Ins but Staffed to Assist You

​In an effort to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in Oregon and protect employees and the public, the Health Licensing Office (HLO) will be changing the way it provides services at our location in Salem. Effective Wednesday, March 25, 2020, the HLO walk-in lobby will be closed indefinitely to the public due to the Governor's Executive Order No. 20-12.

The HLO will remain open to staff so they can assist you by way of email: hlo.info@state.or.us, and phone: (503) 378-8667, during our normal business hours. Many of your questions can also be answered by visiting the HLO website and the Oregon Health Authority, COVID-19 updates page.

HLO business hours:

​​​Monday: 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Tuesday: 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Wednesday through Friday: 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Once a determination for reopening to the public has been made, we will post the date to our website. Please check back often for status updates.

About the Board

The Board of Cosmetology consists of seven members appointed by the governor:

  • Six certified practitioners with valid certificates
  • One public member who is not a practitioner

The term of office of each member of the board is four years, but a member serves at the pleasure of the governor. Vacancies are filled by the governor by appointment for the unexpired term. A member serves until the appointment and qualification of a successor.

A member is eligible for reappointment. If a member serves two consecutive full terms, a period of at least four years must elapse before the individual is again eligible for appointment to serve on the board.
