Patron of Honour

 

Award-winning hairdresser @andrew_barton_hair is our new Patron of Honour, to spread the word about State Registration and work closely with Government and officials to get the Act of Parliament for industry regulation made mandatory.

Andrew says: “I’m delighted to accept the appointment to work closely with the Hair & Barber Council and it’s cause to represent the industry and its people. I’m extremely honoured to be appointed this role following in the footsteps of such hairdressing legends. Throughout my career I have championed the professionalism of the industry and am fiercely protective of its reputation and look forward to working with the Hair & Barber Council to continue its great work.”

Registrar Keith Conniford adds: “Andrew’s role within the Council will be to front the organisation to inspire, consolidate and lead the creative and career possibilities of the industry to new entrants, and those already working within the industry. In addition, we are working together to create a new and vibrant group of ‘ambassadors’ to work with him and the Council, to help bring our industry together as a united voice.”
