Hair & Beauty

About us

The vast majority of the workers in the Hair & Beauty sector are women, therefore strategies for organising more women into trade unions are a top priority in this sector.

So too is training and we look forward to the continuous development of the Hairdressing Certificate Programme in the European Union as a major breakthrough in coming years.

Health and Safety is a key issue - including tackling social and psychological tensions which cause stress at work.

The implementation of the code of conduct, "How to get along", agreed in the framework of the European Social Dialogue and signed by the social partners in June 2001, and a possible extension of the guidelines to other countries will be prominent on the sector’s future agenda.
