HBIA Championships 2012
The HBIA held its annual HBIA Australian Championships on Sunday 20th May at the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre.
The day was packed with an array of fashion and colour as over 600 professionals battled it out for the title of Colour Champion, Senior Champions, Apprentice Champion and Salon Award as well as Educator Award.
Michelle Anthony HBIA Chairperson of Judges says “The standard of work continues to increase as does the energy and enthusiasm it is a wonderful stand out event on the hairdressing calendar”. Directors Edge was thrilled to capture the event!
Being the peak Association for 85 years, the HBIA takes pride in being the consultative body for the hairdressing and beauty industry to both the State and Federal Governments and various Training Boards. We also participate in Industrial Relations, Employee Relations and other Government Tribunals. We influence the legislation that influences you. Importantly, we have first-hand industry experience and truly understand the needs of the salon owner.
The HBIA takes a pivotal role in dealing with Training Providers, Product Companies, Salon Operators, Government Bodies and the Union. This ensures that the best interests of the industry are kept at the forefront of all negotiations. Your industry Association offers a myriad of products and services including seminar and workshops on the key industry issues whether it is changes to training, employment matters or the latest trends in information technology.
Members stay informed via our bi-monthly industry magazine “Salon Update”. HBIA utilises the National Retail Association
(NRA) as a service provider and all benefits that the NRA offers its members are also on offer to HBIA members. This means added benefits and more discounts for members as well as having a strong voice with Government and other departments, not to mention being a part of a very large national organisation.
