This page provides information about one of the associations that has a role in governing standards for related PamperPad businesses.
"The Hairdressing Council was set up in 1964 by an Act of Parliament. This meant that hairdressers can apply to become State Registered in the same way as doctors, dentists or nurses can. The only difference is that it is completely voluntary to belong to the UK Register of qualified hairdressers.
The Hairdressing Council believes in the professionalism and passion of hairdressing and its campaign is to raise standards, making the industry self regulated. Ideally every hairdresser should be state registered which would eliminate those cowboys who practise hairdressing with no qualifications or experience whatsoever.
The membership of the Hairdressing Council includes MPs, doctors, representatives from the major manufacturers, salon owners and business owners. These 17 people meet and discuss ways in which they can help State Registered Hairdressers be kept up to date with everything going on in your industry"
