The Aesthetic & Beauty Industry Council
More than half of the professional beauty industry are not covered or supported by an industry body. The other half are scattered across industry and non-industry specific associations. The lack of unison leaves the industry exposed in the face of challenges with little to no voice when presenting to government. We are not being heard and it’s leaving our industry compromised and fighting many independent battles as opposed to one strong one. It’s time for a united front that authentically represents you and your industry. As the saying goes, there is strength in numbers. If we are to be recognised for the advanced industry we are, then the time has come for all people, across all segments of the Professional Beauty Industry to join forces and be heard. Built on the values of consistency, professional standards and advocacy, the Aesthetic Beauty Industry Council (ABIC) was founded. Dedicated to providing an authentic, ethical and supportive community for industry professionals, ABIC has been established for the betterment of professional standards, working practices and unity of the salon, clinic, spa industry, existing associations and to help the consumer identify quality treatments and experiences. Created for the industry, by the industry, ABIC Board Members are personally invested in the industry. They were chosen thanks to their long-term dedication to the industry, their passion, drive, commitment, their specialised skill sets and their industry network connections that will help build an industry standard, regulation and voice to government. Channeling our Board Members individual expertise, ABIC members will gain access to a plethora of resources to enhance their business operations, boost their professional conduct, transform their leadership confidence and develop team members in order to reach an exemplary standard and consumer awareness. Pairing the unwavering passion of small businesses with a large voice, ABIC proudly provides our diverse and indispensable aesthetic industry with the transparent, trusted and united representation they deserve when it comes to industry awards and regulations, human resource and legal support.
"When we look back in history, some of the greatest things come about as a result of crisis; some of the coolest inventions are created & some of the most important organisations are formed in response to adversity. When I learned about the Aesthetic & Beauty Industry Council being formed, I knew it was going to be one of those right things that was created in response to a crisis and is why I wanted Timely to be involved straight away. The ABIC has a wealth of expertise, a tonne of connections, and most importantly, that really strong voice that we needed last year and that we still need today and will need as we go into the future."
