*SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Covid $ for Independents and ERC $ for Employers*

The Professional Beauty Federation proudly established an unprecedented, nationwide program to get over 10,000 booth/suite renters and establishment owners badly needed PPP relief funds from the federal government.  And for the past year we have led the way to get Employee Retention Tax Credits (ERC) to all salon/shop/spa/school employers.  And now we are adding a self-guided, online portal for independent, self-employed, chair/suite renters to access their fair share of relief funds.  

If you’re an employer who hasn’t yet applied for ERC or you’re an independent, self-employed professional looking for your own share of federal tax credits, go to ProBeautyRelief to determine and secure your legally-entitled share of Covid relief $$

A Focus on Professionalism

We are the united voice for the beauty and barbering industry.  Our  mission is to raise the professionalism and public image of those making an honorable living in this vibrant profession, be they in the hair, skin or nails segment.

Headquartered in California since 1999, our primary purpose has been to influence public policy, regulations, and to promote positive public perceptions of the beauty and barbering industry.  But Covid compelled us to expand our support of industry professionals and stakeholders nationwide, which we’ve done with through policy/regulatory advocacy, financial assistance and even legal actions when necessary.

If you are an independent salon owner, multi-salon owner, salon manager, hair stylist/colorist, nail artist, esthetician, electrologist, barber, or school owner, instructor or student, the Professional Beauty Federation supports you in pursuit of our shared industry goals.  Since 1999, nobody has been a more effective voice for you than the Federation!
