Lobbying & policy issues affecting your hair & beauty business

Being a Member of the NHF gives you a voice and say on the key regulatory issues affecting your hair, beauty or barber business.

Key representation benefits for NHF Members:

  • Gain a powerful voice within the hair & beauty industry.
  • Attend working groups and network within our sector.
  • Take part in sector polls, surveys and discussions.
  • Benchmark with the latest statistics, research and data.

Political and media lobbying for the hair & beauty sector

We campaign successfully at the highest levels of Government and the media on key issues, such as the National Minimum and Living Wage, apprenticeships and pensions, to create a more favourable business environment for you.

We are also actively involved with, or part of, influential organisations and institutions such as The Trade Association Forum, the Trailblazer Apprenticeship Steering Group and the Independent Retailers Confederation representing you and voicing your concerns.

Lobbying on behalf of salons and barbershops

The need for lobbying has become increasingly important with the continual changes to employment law and the legal regulations affecting how you run your salon, spa or barber business.

Your membership fee helps us campaign on the core issues which impact on our industry. Your membership gives us a bigger voice when campaigning to ensure we are heard.

NHF membership gives salon, spa and barber businesses access to a wide range of benefits including our free Commercial and Employment Helpline as well as our industry specific pension scheme.
