The state may refuse to grant a license if a student has been convicted of a crime; committed any act involving dishonesty, fraud, or deceit; or committed any act that, if committed by a licentiate of the business or profession in question, would be grounds for the New Jersey Board of Cosmetology and Hairstyling to deny licensure. The New Jersey Board of Cosmetology and Hairstyling many deny licensure on the grounds that the applicant knowingly made a false statement of fact required to be revealed in the application for such license.
