Two major organisations within the hairdressing and beauty industries have joined forces to offer one voice for the sector.
The Hair & Barber Council along with Salon Owners United have formed a collaboration and are now delighted to launch The British Hair & Beauty Collective’. The move means the personal care sector can now speak to Government directly as one collective, offering a clear strategy for the future.
The decision follows the Government’s recent recognition of the need for the personal care sector to be given their own department within the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) team to help with the many issues surrounding Covid-19, compliance and more moving forward.
Said Keith Conniford, Registrar and CEO of The Hair and Barber Council: “The fragmentation of our sector has been an issue for many decades, one of the main reasons successive Governments have never taken our industry seriously. With the launch of this totally inclusive and equally represented Collective, we have a real chance to make a significant difference that will change the perception of our industry for generations to come.”
Commented Collette Osborne, founder of Salon Owners United: “ I am personally delighted that this long-awaited change has finally come. It will help to calm the confusion and build a more inclusive and supported industry”
