Here are some more links and information about the hairdressing industry you may find useful:
- Their mantra is to raise professionalism and commitment to the hairdressing industry. The offer advice on business development, legal issues, insurance and more. All of that may be of more concern to salon owners but for everyone else there is ‘Britain’s Best‘ a drive to find and award the best stylists, barbers, salon owners and industry workers in the UK. The competition is driven by public votes so keep an eye out for the results later this year.
- In 2011 there was a drive to make it mandatory for all UK hairdressers to register to a national association. This was rejected by parliament but that did not stop the Hairdressing Council from becoming well established in the industry. It is the only official State register for UK Hairdressers and drives to eliminate ‘cowboys’ who practice hairdressing without qualification or experience.
- The British Barbers Association is akin to The National Hairdressers Federation in that their overall goals and operation style are similar. The BBA though, are completely focused on the Make side of the Hairdressing industry, and like the NHF strive to encourage and ensure high standards of practice across all UK Barbers.
- The British Hairdressing Awards are sponsored and run by HJI and here you can find all the info on the nominees and winners.
