Clipso St Albans awarded State Registration with The Hairdressing Council


St Albans’ Clipso salon has become the first full salon in its area to become State Registered with The Hairdressing Council.

Set up in 1964 by an Act of Parliament, The Hairdressing Council allows hairdressers to become State Registered in the same way as doctors, dentists or nurses can, helping to regulate the industry and recognise professionalism.

Of his salon’s appointment to the UK Register of qualified hairdressers, owner Simon Cox commented, “Professionalism is imperative in the hairdressing industry, and I wanted to show the public and clients alike that we’re serious and dedicated to delivering the best standards with the support of The Hairdressing Council.”

The official certification means Clipso St Albans now stands alongside industry veterans Richard Ward and Trevor Sorbie, while also giving Cox the prefix of SRH to his name (State Registered Hairdresser) as well as the opportunity to apply for the Master Craftsman Diploma.
