The Hair and Barber Council' 

Set up by an Act of Parliament in 1964, the Hair Council enables hairdressers to apply to become State Registered. But while state registration is mandatory for doctors, nurses, dentists and several other professions, hairdressers can register voluntarily. The Hair Council has two main aims: firstly to increase the number of hairdressers who join the UK Register of Qualified Hairdressers on a voluntary basis.

Our other key objective is to bring about a parliamentary debate followed by a statutory change so that all practicing hairdressers will need to be registered in order to work in the UK.

In order to achieve our goals and to provide advice and support to registered hairdressers, the 17 members of the Hair Council, which includes MPs, doctors, representatives from the major product manufacturers, salon owners and business owners, meet quarterly to discuss ways to progress. There are also Steering Group Committees in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland  which meet a couple of times a year and help to push forward the campaign for registration; and a Barber Council which represents the barbering industry and campaigns for registration of all barbers.

Unseen work directly with survivors of modern slavery and trafficking. Signs of slavery and trafficking are often hidden, which can make it hard to identify victims. It is important that frontline professionals, community groups and individuals learn to recognise the signs of a trafficked person and are equipped to know how to respond. For more information please take a look at the unseen uk website HERE.
