Hair and Barber Council
Set up by an Act of Parliament in 1964, the Hair Council enables hairdressers to apply to become State Registered. But while state registration is mandatory for doctors, nurses, dentists and several other professions, hairdressers can register voluntarily.
The Hair Council has two main aims: firstly to increase the number of hairdressers who join the UK Register of Qualified Hairdressers on a voluntary basis.
Our other key objective is to bring about a parliamentary debate followed by a statutory change so that all practicing hairdressers will need to be registered in order to work in the UK
