Mandatory State Registration for Hairdressers & Barbers

What we want

  • Hairdressing and barbering to be recognised as a profession, with minimum standards for anyone working in a salon or barbershop.

What are we doing?

  • We are on the Hair Council and the Barbers Council, working to make the present voluntary system mandatory.
  • As the voice of employers, we’re making sure mandatory state registration will not increase costs or bring extra administration for salon or barbershop owners.

Do you want to become a state registered hairdresser?

NHF Members enjoy a discounted price on voluntary state registration. Members who pay their Hair Council fee by direct debit annually will only pay a fee of £28 a year per employee rather than the standard fee of £42. To receive this discount, you must register with the Hair Council directly and provide them with your NHF membership number.

You can join the NHF today here.
