“Our charity has been a lifeline for many in our profession over the years but 2020 and 2021 has thrown us into the spotlight as more and more people started to hear about what we do and how we help. We have had fantastic support from our sponsors, donators, and the industry but it’s important that we continue to be there for those in the industry who need financial assistance.  Who knows how long the effects of these three lockdowns will have on our industry, so we need to keep pushing the charity awareness and this e-cookbook is a great way to bring a bit of lightness to what has been a really hard time for many,” says Samantha.


Hair & Beauty Charity has been a registered charity in England and Wales since 2017.  It was first established in 1836 as the Hairdressers’ Orphan Fund friendly society.
