Barbering and cosmetology schools in Maine are licensed and regulated by the state’s Professional & Financial Regulation department.
A condition of licensing for these schools requires you to furnish a surety bond according to the following parameters:
For any surety bond amount up to and including a $50,000 requirement, our agency offers you the Maine barbering and cosmetology bond with immediate issuance.
What this means for you is that after completing a short surety bond application --- which we’ll take from you over the phone --- and payment of the premium, 1% of the bond amount up to $50,000, the surety bond is issued to you immediately.
There is no credit check nor review by an underwriter.
The application will ask you the basics--- the name that should reflect on your surety application; and also contact information. We'll also ask you whether your bond is for:
Amounts Greater than $50,000
If applicable, for any surety bond amount greater than $50,000, the difference is that your surety bond application must be first signed by you and “witnessed”; and there is also a personal or business credit review as part of the standard underwriting procedure.
Good credit is required for the barbering and cosmetology surety bond requirement greater than $50,000; upon approval, however, the rate remains 1%.
In either case, once the premium is paid, your surety bond is issued to you. Your surety bond, along with the notarized signature from the Surety and the Power of Attorney (POA) form are sent to you.
Before filing, you’ll have your bond notarized as Principal. Filing is through:

The schools surety bond requirement is a financial guarantee on behalf of your students, and guarantees to them the availability of refunds pursuant to Title 32 §14246(1)(B) of the state’s statutes.
More generally, the bond protects your students against instance of fraud or malfeasance on the part of a licensed Principal.
