Unlike in the past, hairdressing premises are no longer required to submit an application for approval to the City’s Health Service. It is the hairdressing premises operator’s responsibility to comply with requirements.

The City’s Health Service has developed a set of Guidelines for Hairdressing Premises. The Guidelines provide a set of infections prevention and control standards for businesses performing hairdressing procedures.

If you are thinking about setting up a new hairdressing premises you are encouraged to read and implement the Guidelines to ensure your premises meets the required standards. 

If you require any further information or advice please contact the City on 9397 3000.
