Hairdressers and barbers

You need to register to work as a hairdresser in Harborough district so that we can check you are following helath and safety rules.

We issue registration certificates initially for the premises and its proprietor. Further practitioners can then be registered as required. Registration is a one-off requirement, valid for the lifetime of the business, and applications must be accompanied by a registration fee. Once the application has been received, an appointment will be made with the applicant for an Environmental Health Officer to inspect the premises. If the inspection shows that the premises is compliant with all aspects of cleanliness and safety, as required by our bylaws, the registration certificate will be issued.

Registered premises and practitioners are required to display a registration certificate, which indicates that the premises and equipment have been inspected for cleanliness and safety in compliance with our bylaws (see below).
