Andrew Barton follows in the footsteps of Vidal Sassoon CBE and Daniel Galvin OBE to hold the title. He is just as passionate about raising standards and gaining recognition for the industry.

Andrew has a glittering career spanning some 30 years. He is also the Creative & Communications Director for Headmasters. Andrew will spread the word about State Registration and will also work closely with Registrar Keith Conniford. Together, they will liaise with Government and officials for an Act of Parliament on industry regulation.

Andrew says: “I’m very happy to accept the appointment to work closely with the Hair & Barber Council. It is an honour to hold this role following in the footsteps of such hairdressing legends. Throughout my career I have championed the professionalism of the industry. I am fiercely protective of its reputation and look forward to working with the Hair & Barber Council.” 

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. They will help bring our industry together as a united voice.”
