About the Australian Hairdressing Council

The Australian Hairdressing Council (AHC) is the national voice that connects hairdressing, barber and beauty professionals, educators and suppliers. It exists to ensure a sustainable and positive future for our industry. Since 2010 the AHC has set ethical business standards for salon and registered training organisations (RTOs) members and represents the professional hairdressing industry nationally.

AHC members are accredited salons, product companies, RTOs and associated industry suppliers and businesses that share a united vision to promote and protect the industry.

We're YOUR voice representing our industry's presence to government and consumers and together we elevate industry standards, reputation and image to create a better future.
