Why was H.A.I.R. created?

Following a survey of 1800 industry members as well as high level government bureaucrats and regulators, an overwhelming 95% agreed that the Australian hairdressing industry SHOULD be registered in order to protect its reputation and integrity.

Who is H.A.I.R. for?

H.A.I.R. is an official register that identifies individuals that are qualified, professional hairdressers or apprentices working in compliant business structures.

What is the aim of H.A.I.R.?

First and foremostly, H.A.I.R. is here to help safeguard and grow the industry. Its existence allows us to:

  • professionalise the industry
  • bring qualified professionals together as a united front to make positive changes for Australian hairdressing
  • give the hairdressing industry qualification credibility
  • create a respected image for hairdressers all over Australia
  • produce national consumer awareness campaigns
  • improve industry standards
  • protect consumers from kitchen operators and unqualified individuals conducting hair services in non-compliant businesses
How much does H.A.I.R. membership cost?

Annual membership to H.A.I.R. is free. Please encourage your fellow hairdressers to join so we can continue our fight against kitchen operators who negatively impact the hairdressing industry.

What do I get for my H.A.I.R. membership?
  • H.A.I.R. Certificate of Registration
  • Acknowledgement of your time in the industry
  • Access to events, functions and competitions
  • Knowledge that you are joining a united front and helping to make a positive change for our industry
Who can register for H.A.I.R.?

H.A.I.R. is for qualified individuals or apprentices who are still working in the industry to register, not for the salon they work in to register as a group. Each hairdresser needs to have their own individual registration. This includes salon owners as well as those working for suppliers and in education, for example, as long as their role is still classified as part of the hairdressing industry.

Can I register my apprentices?

Yes you can.

What do I need to provide to prove I'm a qualified hairdresser?

In addition to some basic contact information, the sign-up form will ask you to provide the name and contact details of your employer (if you are an employee) or the name of a qualified hairdresser who can verify your qualifications (if you are an employer or sole trader). Once we authorise with them that they and you are qualified hairdressers, then your membership is confirmed. It’s that simple.
