HBSA and BCA Hair and Beauty Trade Associations Join Together
The HBSA (Hairdressing & Beauty Suppliers Association) and the BCA (Beauty Companies Association) have made the decision to merge in a bid to strengthen the voice of the hair and beauty industries.
HBSA president Stephen MacDonough said: “I am very pleased that the merger with the BCA has been agreed. The merger of our two Associations will help to strengthen our voice in the industry, to offer continued support to our members, provide professional advice and greater networking opportunities to our new joint membership base”.
While BCA chair Lisa Gerrard added: “We are both delighted and excited to be joining forces with the HBSA. This merger will undoubtedly strengthen the new Association’s representation across the beauty and hair care industries, enabling our members to have a more robust voice on relevant industry matters, as well as the opportunity to enjoy enhanced membership benefits.”
As the industry is allowed to open up again, the HBSA will be there to support members with information and advice on how businesses can establish safe distancing protocols in their premises. We will share best practice information on the correct equipment salons should use to create a safe environment for both staff and customers during this time of uncertainty.
