H.A.I.R. is the Hairdressing Australia Industry Register.
It exists to recognise and publicly promote individuals who are qualified and professional hairdressers working in compliant business structures.
The creation of H.A.I.R. was in direct response to industry feedback of more than 1800 industry members. 95% of those surveyed believed that the Australian hairdressing industry SHOULD be registered in order to protect it's reputation and integrity and safeguard consumers from unqualified hair practitioners that do not meet industry standards.

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.
H.A.I.R. is an official register that identifies individuals that are qualified, professional hairdressers working in compliant business structures.
First and foremostly, H.A.I.R. is here to help safeguard and grow the industry. Its existence allows us to:
Annual membership per individual is just $69. That’s only $5.75 per month! A small but significant contribution to support our fight against kitchen operators who negatively impact the hairdressing industry.
No. H.A.I.R. is for qualified individuals 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.
Only qualified hairdressers that are still working in the industry. This includes those working for suppliers and in education, for example, as long as their role is still classified as part of the hairdressing industry.
No. H.A.I.R. is designed to support those who have completed their qualification and are currently working in the industry. Once an apprentice is qualified, then they should also become a member of H.A.I.R.
Yes. The AHC is a separate body to H.A.I.R. AHC memberships are business orientated, such as a Salon Select Membership. Since H.A.I.R. is for the qualified hairdresser, you will need to register as an individual.
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.
Either. Originally, H.A.I.R. was designed for the hairdresser to pay, but we have been surprised at the number of owners who want to pay for their staff due to their belief in this project and also the strength of the marketing that can be provided by having a team of H.A.I.R. registered staff.
