The last 18 months has shown us how much the public value their hair and beauty industry. It’s important for its contributions to the economy, it’s important for playing a pivotal role in high streets and communities in every corner of the UK and it’s also important for our health and well-being.”
He continued: “We can now look forward to strengthening the future resilience of the industry and we can start by taking advantage of this moment to really give it the recognition it deserves. The Government fully recognises that the hair and beauty industry is offering highly skilled, talented and creative career paths and will continue to work to ensure that hairdressers recover from a really challenging year. I look forward to continuing to work with the sector.”
