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.
The UK is one of the only countries in Europe and North America that isn’t regulated at all and as such anyone can currently set himself or herself up as a hairdresser or a barber, and start to practice without any form of training and qualifications, this cannot be right!
Join us to help give the hairdressing and barbering industries the professional recognition they deserve whilst giving our customers the protection and comfort in the knowledge that their hair services are being carried out by properly trained and qualified hairdressers and barbers.
I hope you will enjoy looking around our website and if you would like further information 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."
