The Cosmetology Connection also helps students prepare for the PSI Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation State Board of Cosmetology Exam by completely organizing and renting state board practical exam kits. Our state board rental kits have all the tools necessary to complete the State Board Practical Exam, EXCEPT for the Mannequin Head, Table Clamp, Thermal Curling Iron with Cord, and a blow dryer.

Our kits are packed with individual pre-labeled bags to complete all sections of the practical exam. All equipment & tools are new, clean, sanitary and disinfected. More importantly, to expedite your time and money, the kit is packaged, labeled and organized specifically to create a convenient, user-friendly supply of test materials. The design allows each test taker to concentrate on what they need to do rather than what they need to bring to take the state board exam. 

The rental cost for the State Board Cosmetology Examination Kit is $150 for 48 hours. Our kits are available by reservation ONLY. You must give a 5 day notice prior to your test date for us to guarantee you a kit. Kits can pick up the day before the state board exam so that you can familiarize yourself with the organization of the contents. Kits are returned by pre-arrangement after the exam. The kits are quality inspected twice by our staff and inspected twice by the kit renter with a state board checklist. We strongly recommend students to ensure all products are securely & accurately placed and products are in working condition once reserved. Therefore, we are not accountable for any damage(s), misplaced item(s) and or any other reason(s) due to failure on your final examination.

Kits must be picked up and returned to The Cosmetology Connection located at 4434 Bluebonnet Dr. Stafford, Texas 77477.
(WE DO NOT SHIP KITS)

​A Credit Card is required and kept on file until the kit is returned. If the kit is not returned within 48 hours, returned missing items or damaged, your credit card will be charged a $150 Damage Fee.
