What is this study about, and what's involved?

This survey is part of an ongoing research project into hairdressing and hair-care practices at the University of Southampton. The aim of the study is to work with hairdressing bodies (Habia) and training providers (VTCT and City & Guilds) to integrate sustainability into the curriculum. This has a great deal of relevance for the hair and beauty industry as Habia’s new standards include guidelines for responsible and more sustainable ways of working.

The survey is designed to discover current beliefs towards sustainability in the hairdressing industry and uncover current teaching amongst trainers. It is also a training resource in its own right. The survey offers each participant the chance to share their opinions upon current practices and future learning.  

This study is only applicable to those who are involved in training in Hairdressing, Barbering or or Hairdressing and Beauty courses within the UK.
