The UK’s beauty industry doesn’t implement licenses for practice. Practitioners are given the option to train professionally or develop skills through experience. If they choose the former, getting a training program with a structure that aligns with their interests and what they want to learn is always recommended.
For practitioners who are planning to build a salon business, the following licenses are required to legally operate:
- Business License
- Premises License
- Massage and Special Treatment Premises License
- PPL License
- Personal License
Some areas of the country might require additional permits or licenses from salon owners. That’s why it’s recommended to check with the local authorities or councils for other requirements that salons must comply with.
