Skills Foresight Report for Hair and Beauty Published

Jul 21 2017

After the successful launch of the Skills Foresight Report for Hair and Beauty, which took place at the House of Commons on 19th July, the details have now been released and a copy of the report can be found here.

Key findings include:

Roles are becoming much more technical, requiring greater knowledge and skill, and salons are offering more holistic services which provide a whole new customer experience. Micro-needling and chemical peels are two examples of qualifications that reach degree level standard.

There is demand for greater regulation to raise the standards of the industry, both via Government enforced methods such as the Skills Plan and the Apprenticeship Levy, but also through industry-led initiatives such as a mandatory register for hairdressers and barbers.

Career routes into and through the sector are not confined to traditional job roles. New and interesting routes have been opened which include pathways into careers such as aesthetic nursing, non-surgical beauty technician, trichologist and a variety of roles supporting rehabilitation and palliative care, as well as dedicated film industry roles such as cosmetologists, and semi-permanent makeup artists.

Launched at the same event was the Hair Council report on the Case for Mandatory Registration for Hairdressing and Barbering, a copy of which can be found here.
