Working Together to Champion High Standards

The Hair & Barber Council and HABIA commit to working together to champion high standards, professionalism as well as mandatory regulation.

The Hair and Barber Council and HABIA have had a mutual respect and also shared goals for many years. This has now become even stronger thanks to an affiliation agreement. This underlines their joint quest of working together to improve the quality and standards of education in the sector.

Both organisations dedicate themselves to ensuring the highest level of professional expertise in the sector, and this joint initiative can only serve to promote these ideals.

Working Together

Keith Conniford, Registrar of the Hair & Barber Council said: “We have spoken extensively over recent months with Joan Scott of HABIA. It quickly became very clear that the Hair and Barber Council was in total alignment with HABIA in their continual quest to improve the quality of training and education in the sector. The training and education of young people entering our sector has always been a massive priority for me. These young people are the future of our industry and deserve the very best start we can give them. We are the Government approved body responsible for setting the standards in our sector. I totally support and applaud HABIA’s huge ongoing commitment to the raising of standards in our sector”.

Working Together

Joan Scott, of HABIA said: “The Hair and Beauty Industry Authority (HABIA) and the Hair and Barber Council (HBC) have worked together for many years. We have a mutual respect and also a shared vison for a regulated sector. With the proliferation of very short, unregulated courses, our partnership becomes even more important. Together we can champion high standards as well as mandatory regulation across the hair, barbering and beauty sector”.
