There are also a number of annual events organised by the HBSA to which members are all invited. You can find out more about these on the Events page on this site.
Meeting industry colleagues
HBSA members tend to be the top level decision makers within companies relevant to the Hair and Beauty industry. A number of events are organised every year where individuals have the chance to meet colleagues, to socialise and build relationships away from the office environment.
Members receive regular news updates on a variety of topics including product legislation, health and safety compliance and industry issues.
