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.
With all legal restrictions having been lifted since the 19th July, we can at last hope to get back to some type of normality in the not too distant future.
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.
One thing is for sure…. had we been a regulated industry prior to the pandemic, we would have been in a much stronger position to influence Government in its decision making for our industry during this crisis. Regulation would give us strength in so many ways.
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."
