NHF launches new sister trade association
The National Hairdressers Federation (NHF) has unveiled its brand new sister trade association, the National Beauty Federation.
The new association represents a natural transition for the organisation, providing specialist support for beauty salons, tailoring its services and advising on the unique challenges of running a beauty business.
Membership benefits will include a free round the clock helpline for employment and management, free employment contracts and staff handbooks and advice on all aspects of running a beauty business, such as GDPR, employment law changes and handling complaints.
“We recognised that the NHF name is a barrier for beauty salons, yet we know that our members value the free business support included in membership,” says Hilary Hall, chief executive. “The new NBF clearly shows that high quality, specialist support is available to beauty salons too, but tailored for the unique challenges of running a beauty business.”
In addition, Hellen Ward, managing director of Richard Ward Hair and Metrospa and Vice President of the British Association of Women Entrepreneurs, will serve as the NBF's first beauty ambassador. "It's fantastic news that the NBF will be providing the same valuable support for beauty salons,” she comments. “This will take the stress out of running a hair/beauty business and save salon owners a huge amount of money.”
To celebrate the NBF's launch, the first 100 beauty salons to join will receive a discount of £25 on their first year's membership when quoting the code NBF25.
