European Directives

European Directives

What we want

  • A reduction in restrictive measures which do not greatly benefit employees but significantly increase costs for salon owners.

What are we doing

  • We’re on the board of Coiffure EU, the European body for trade associations like the NHF which represents employers, negotiating on your behalf.
  • Fighting against the implementation of unnecessary and expensive health & safety legislation in salons.
  • Promoting healthy and safe working in salons and barbershops through training and toolbox materials.
