About the British Barbers’ Association

The British Barbers’ Association is committed to raising professional standards, highlighting and celebrating talent and facilitating the professional and commercial development of barbers, male grooming salons and men’s hairdressers.

Until the BBA was formed, there was no trade association dedicated exclusively to the barbering sector of the hairdressing industry. But as men and boys become more image conscious and spend more time and money on professional services, products and treatments, male grooming has grown phenomenally and this trend is set to continue!

With barbers and men’s hairdressers encountering a more discerning clientele, the need to raise professional standards, keep abreast of trends and hone technical skills to deliver the styles men want increases. This is why a dedicated association that provides support and helps you capitalise on the incredible opportunities this presents is needed.

Unlike other trade associations, we charge NO membership fees, so you can join today and start benefitting from your membership, as well as making a contribution to the future of this incredible sector of the market.

How do you benefit from BBA membership?

We have listened to barbers and designed many benefits around your needs. First we provide access to a community of fellow professionals to share ideas and inspiration.

We also give exclusive discounts on the highest quality professional brands, tools and services. By negotiating with our partners, you buy cheaper and can therefore profit more from the sale of professional hair care products. This philosophy extends to training, salon insurance and pensions, business consultancy, legal resources and other professional services that will help your team meet the high expectations of clients and ensure your business thrives.

There are also initiatives underway to deliver inspirational barbering ideas and styles, whilst initiatives such as our National Student Barber Competition will raise the profile of men’s hairdressing and celebrate the quality and professionalism of people within our industry.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or need advice or information.
