Welcome to The Hair and Barber Council’s website
Committed to mandatory registration for hairdressers and barbers, The Hair and Barber Councils’ main focus is to lobby the UK Government to achieve this goal.
As the ONLY Statutory Authority for the Hair and Barber Sector, our remit is to represent the industry at the highest level at Westminster.
Because of the devastating impact Covid-19 has had on our sector, we are entering a new ‘Era’ for our industry where history will be hard to justify in our decision-making process moving forward.
With the new omicron variant of covid having recently been identified and starting to spread throughout the UK, many of our sector are becoming increasingly concerned about the possibility of further restrictions over Christmas and into the new year! The very last thing any of us need is another lockdown nor indeed any new restrictions that would stop us trading, even for a very short time.
The Hair and Barber Councils links to Government have become increasingly strong these past two years, with the personal care department at BEIS, various Ministers and MPs coming to us for information, opinion and regular contact and updates…but above all really listening to us and being guided by our interaction with them.
Joining the Hair and Barber Council further strengthens this voice with the Government and gives you a voice through us as well.
So join us to help you, all hair professionals and the sector as a whole in securing a better future for our great industry for years to come.
I hope you will enjoy looking around our website and if you would like further information on anything please do not hesitate in contacting us.

"Getting registered is one of the most important things you can do this year. The professionalism and standard of our industry will only increase if regulation becomes
compulsory. The reputation of hairdressing is in your hands - get registered and do us all a favour."
