by laurahusband / last updated August 9, 2019


Hairdressers Journal International and the brands within our portfolio – Salon International, HJ Live North and HJ Live Ireland are launching the #beYOUbePRO campaign  to celebrate all that is great about being a ‘pro’ within the hair and beauty industry.

The #beYOUbePRO campaign will remind hair professionals why it’s essential to shout about the amazing work you do for your clients on a daily basis, the professional skills you have and the training you continue to undertake to give clients the very best experience.

The aim of the campaign is to raise the profile of the professional sector and shout about the benefits of visiting a professional stylist and salon for all treatments and services, and garner recognition for this vibrant and varied sector that adds billions of pounds to the UK economy.

Jayne Lewis-Orr, HJ/Salon International’s executive director says: “We are passionate and committed to the industries and it is hugely important that the public recognises the value and benefit of the services being offered by stylists and colour technicians. Consumers are paying for knowledge and experience gained and a real professional difference.”
