NHBF launches survey to guide Government on beauty and aesthetics market
Membership body the National Hair and Beauty Federation (NHBF) is launching a survey into the aesthetics treatment market to gain a better understanding of this growing sector.
With the range of non-surgical aesthetic treatments such as microneedling, chemical peels, fast freezing, botulinum toxins, fillers, PRP and IPL rapidly expanding, the NHBF wants to gather information from leading salon and clinic operators on what services are most the popular and why, as well as gathering data on who is performing them.
The survey will ask key questions including:
- Who provides advanced beauty and non-surgical aesthetics treatments?
- Where do these treatments take place?
- Which are the most common treatments?
- What clinical oversight is provided?
- What qualifications and training do practitioners hold?
- Which beauty treatment trends do practitioners think will grow fastest in 2020?
Enter the survey now.
Closing date for responses is Sunday, March 1, and all entries will be anonymous and remain strictly confidential.
Why has the NHBF Aesthetics Survey been launched?
The survey findings will be presented to the new Beauty, Aesthetics and Wellbeing All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) to help the group get a better understanding of advanced beauty and aesthetic treatments.
The APPG is co-chaired by Carolyn Harris MP and Judith Cummins MP and sponsored by the NHBF. The group aims to promote the beauty industry as a force for good and highlight the substantial contribution it makes to the UK economy.
“The research will give the APPG vital insight into the beauty and aesthetic treatments available and who provides them. To support practitioners and to protect the safety of the public, we need to ensure that qualifications, training and high-quality guidance are in place,” said Caroline Larissey, NHBF director of quality and standards.
Professional Beauty will exclusively reveal the survey’s findings this spring.
This news follows the Advertising Standards Authority’s recent announcement that it is cracking down on health and beauty businesses who are illegally promoting botulinum toxin injections on social media.
