THE VIEWS OF IHF MEMBERS
The IHF provides industry information and a wealth of experience that any salon will benefit from. It also organises great training and the leading industry competition in the country.
The Federation is a beacon of excellence, hope and inspiration not only for hair salon owners but for hairdressers, barbers and the industry in general.
The Irish Hairdressers Federation offers great opportunities for our team members, initiatives like the Star Team and the championships are fantastic for our team members to keep them motivated and propel their careers. Its fantastic for them to meet other stylists from outside our area at events and build connections in the industry.
The IHF is the one true voice for the salon Owner in the Salon Industry. Helping me keep my best foot forward in all aspects of my business.
Knowing that support is there for advice and information from like minded business people is fantastic and IHF competitions constantly pushes the standards and exposure of our industry every year
When we opened our salon in April 09 the IHF were the foundation stone to all the information we ever needed regarding business set-up, insurance, team member rights, wages. Without their help and support it would have made our first 4 months of business a nightmare
I have been a member of IHF for approximately 10 years, over the past number of years I have found the IHF extremely helpful, I have received a lot of information in relation to staffing issues for example, the minimum wage, contracts and employer/employee rights and the importance of responsibility a salon owner has for their staff and business
Having your own salon does not mean you have to do it alone, being a member of the IHF gives you access to up to date information and an opportunity to network with like minded people
The IHF is a fantastic organisation which if used to its full potential will be the difference between having an amazing business or just an ordinary one. With so much knowledge and advice just a phone call away I would say it is a must have membership. It has allowed us to grow in so many directions and is the heartbeat of Irish Hairdressing.
Membership of the IHF gives me access to support materials, advice and up to date information on all aspects of running a hairdressing business today. Membership is an essential part of my business.
