Created to represent the entire hairdressing industry when it comes to uplifting standards, acting as a voice to government and supporting ethical businesses regardless of the form they take, the Australian Hairdressing Council are thrilled to announce the launch of their Solo Owner Select. 

With the hairdressing industry undergoing huge change in recent years, Solo Owner Select is designed specifically with sole traders in mind.

“As a  result of the pandemic, it is estimated that around 70% of our hairdressers have  become solo operators without staff,” explains AHC CEO Sandy Chong of the new membership option. “This could include being a freelancer, rent-a-chair, mobile hairdresser or working from a home salon or commercial suite.

“The AHC is concerned about the lack of qualified operators in our industry, which is  why we are excited to launch our new AHC membership for sole operators – SOLO  OWNER SELECT.”

Created for this significant yet overwhelmingly unsupported sector of the hair and barber industry, Solo Owner Select membership is for sole traders that hold a hairdressing qualification and ABN. They can complete a business accreditation checklist plus register their  hairdressing qualification on the AHC Hairdressing Australia Industry Register (HAIR).

What can one expect from a Solo Owner Select Membership?
