No. You can always add one from the mannequins and supplies page. However keep in mind that unless your state requires a hard kit case you can use any bag or suitcase as long as it is not larger than 30x30in and contains no beauty brands as the logo. Only order a duffle bag id you do not have one of those options available.

My instructor at my schools says that I am missing some supplies and need to buy additional items what do I do?

Every state board exam kit comes with a free 30 min exam consultation call, TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE CALL. Often times instructors are under informed on what state board policies actually are. We will make sure you are aware of what the state requires without inserting personal opinions into the mix. We work directly with the boards so we know what is accepted and what isn’t and all kits are build in this fashion. WE CAN INSTRUCT YOU ON EXACTLY HOW TO USE OUR KIT AND SUPPLIES TO PASS YOUR EXAM.
