The Professional Beauty Federation proudly established an unprecedented, nationwide program to get booth/suite renters and establishment owners badly needed and well-deserved PPP relief funds from the federal government.  Now we are leading the way to get Employee Retention Tax Credits (ERC) to all salon/shop/spa employers, which could amount to tens of thousands of dollars for each of their employees.  Find out if your establishment qualifies here:

       *If you’re a booth/suite renter or self-employed beauty/barbering professional, we will soon have relief money for you, too (not a loan and you can spend the money any way you want … so stay tuned)


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!
