Question Obtaining a Cosmotology License With A Felony

I moved to FL almost a year ago and have been working as a bartender/waitress the whole time but I am not getting any younger and have always wanted to go back to school to get my cosmo license. I am speaking with a school at this point and they have accepted me but I am NOT going to go through 13 months of training and waste time and money if I will never be able to be licensed by the state. I have been convicted of felonies and misdemenors and my last conviction was in 2014 for a misd shoplifting. I have been through addiction and am in recovery been clean almost 4 years now but I want to be able to have more of a career than I job! If anyone has been in my shoes or knows anyone that has and can offer some insight I would greatly appreciate it.
thank you,

Your best source will be the licensing entity in that State. Some States have eased up on the restrictions, especially once a person has gone a defined period of time without arrest and is off paper.

Double check with the licensing board in your state but it looks like it’s ok in most states.

Florida is tough but if you could get written letters from the state board in your favor that could help. I have a few friends who went through rehab and went on to get licensing in a couple of area's. Nursing, cosmo, and another became a barber. So it is possible just a bit harder.
