Benchmarking Our Industry

The Australian Hairdressing Council invites you to be part of our Industry Benchmarking Project. This project aims to provide you with important statistical data pertaining to your salon to help you identify key areas of success and areas of improvement.

The questionnaire is included as part of your Salon Select membership and you are permitted to participate at no additional expense.

All other salons and the AHC will only we able to see the averages and comparison data that the reporting system will issue, so you can rest assured that your private information is still just that private. 


The AHC will be running this benchmarking every year for the next few years, to continually provide an update and current information for all our members to be able to compare as accurate as possible to the true industry averages. For you as a member, what this means is that you will be able to see how you compare against the industry by a range of criteria, for example:

Finally we as an Industry will know what is really happening in "Our" Industry.
