A New Business Partner Has Arrived!

After months of negotiation (with herself!), Emma has finally taken the plunge and added a new face to the HBR team....meet Frankie!

Frankie enjoys watching TV, travelling around in his Mum's open top car in his very smart car seat and Emma loves being able to take him for a walk in her heels between business meetings.   They are the perfect partnership!

Summer holidays are here again and although we've already taken ours, there are still huge numbers of you that are counting down the days or weeks until you get to take a much needed break.  

The thing is though....what are you going to do when you come home?  

Do you want to go back to the same old job or is there something better out there for you?  

We have roles coming in from as far afield as Dubai and it may be that there is a role that is just right for you.  

So why not add sending us your CV to your pre-holiday to-do list?  It could be the best decision you ever made!

Holiday Season is Here!

HBR took a much needed break in May and spent two lovely weeks relaxing and thinking long and hard about how to push the business forward and create even more opportunities for our clients to secure the strongest candidates.

The passion that we have for the business means that coming back to work is a joy - but we know that for many, this isn't the case.  If you have a break coming up and you know that when you come home, returning to your current role will be tough, maybe it is time for a change?

Why not get in touch and send through your CV today?  It might just open the right door for you and see you coming home from your summer break with a sense of excitement and fulfilment.

Happy New Year! 

It's hard to believe that we are now almost half way through the first month of 2018 already!  This year is set to fly as quickly as last year and things at HBR are busier than ever.  We have a steady flow of fantastic roles that we have been asked to fill and we are - as always - seeking the highest calibre of candidate to fill each one. 

Roles get added to this site as often as we can but much of the time, we are able to match a candidate to a role as soon as we get it, simply because the person has placed their CV with us, in anticipation of the perfect role coming up.  You can do that too  - just send us an email with your CV attached.

Make 2018 the year that your career moves up to the next level and get in touch today!

Did you know we are a worldwide recruiter?

Although based in the UK, and proudly using a .co.uk website address, for a long time now we have been building amazing relationships with big name hair, beauty and aesthetics brands from across the world.  This means that we can offer jobs that are based in amazing places like Dubai!  We are constantly branching out and have recently built a great relationship with a brand in Australia - so it really is worth keeping an eye on this site as some fantatsic roles will be added very soon.


We say it often - but it's worth repeating - our database is huge and our reputation is solid - we attract BIG clients seeking the highest calibre professionals that the industry has on offer.  If you aren't in our database, you simply won't get access to these amazing opportunities.  If you don't want to miss out - get your CV sent over today.

September - Bring it on!

It's August Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK and the sun is blazing.  Tomorrow the UK goes back to work and once September is here, the kids go back to school and life returns to its usual rhythm.  The great news for anyone looking for a new job is that September is a HUGE month for recruitment!  

Companies hold off in looking for new staff until they feel that there is a good chance they'll find the best candidate - and summer holidays can really get in the way of that!  So if you are in the market for a new challenge in the run up the the new year (yes, we did say new year!!), then get in touch today.

As the nights draw in...

It's that time of year when the clocks go back and the leaves start to fall.  The upside is it's definitely time to pull out those cosy penguin (or whatever!) PJ's that you were gifted last Christmas and get yourself all cosy and ready for the season of pumpkins and fireworks.  But if you want to start your new year with a bang, there is one thing you need to get done before you snuggle down with your favorite box sets - get your CV into us here at HBR.  We will keep it safe and make sure that when your perfect role comes in, you are matched up to it without you having to lift a finger.  Honestly, staying one step ahead of your career never felt so easy!

Strange times for everyone

With all of the disruption being caused by Covid-19, it's a great time to take stock and consider what is important.  We could use this update as an opportunity to try and encourage you to send in your CV, but instead, what we'd like to do is to encourage you to take a moment to feel grateful.  Grateful for what you have, grateful for those around you and hopeful for what the future will bring.  This period of disruption will end.  And when it does, we will be here ready to support you - either as a candidate or as a business.  And if you do want to reach out in the meantime, we are working from home and always happy to hear from you.  Take care.

1st July 2020

We're back and raring to go!

Our last update was in March and it seems strange to think that when we wrote that, we had no real sense of the scale of disruption we were facing.  But it's coming to an end at last, and as we carefully step outside and into the salon again, it's time to be grateful for everything we have.  HBR has been working hard through lockdown and we are thrilled to be able to announce that we have some amazing roles all ready to fill! It's an uncertain time for many, but we know this industry is strong and it will thrive.  Get in touch today and ask about our latest roles - we need great candidates...right now!

Creating certainty in an uncertain world

Things have been gradually opening up across the industry over the last few weeks, although there are still some frustrating delays in the beauty area which we hope will resolve soon.  The great news is that despite all of the disruption over the last few months, salons and brands are actively recruiting and this means we have a steady stream of opportunities flowing in every day.  We see this as positive at a time of continuing uncertainty and we are keen to support you as much as possible to find a new role or fill your vacancy.  So get in touch today and get yourself set for a bright future - let finding a new role be the one thing you don't need to feel uncertain about.

28th August 2020

We need your CV!

It's good to see that almost all aspects of the hair and beauty industry are now open again after months of enforced closure.  There are a number of precautions in place that change how things feel but it's important that we do all we can to keep our clients safe.  HBR have been fortunate in being able to stay open and operational throughout the pandemic and have used the time to create wider and stronger networks, spreading the word about what we do and growing the business in reputation.


The great news is that the industry is rallying and we have a huge number of roles coming in - and we need you to send in your CV's so we can fill them!  The only way we can place you in the job you dream of is if we know you are looking - so get in touch today!

Time to make big plans

The leaves have started to fall and things are getting decidedly autumnal here in the UK.  Sadly, the uncertainty of the pandemic continues and life still hasn't returned to normal for most of us.  At HBR, we like to think of this time of the year as a chance to take stock and think about what we want to achieve in the year ahead.  Starting now gives us the chance to set everything in motion to give us the best chance of success as early into 2021 as possible.  If you are starting to think about what you want from the new year, now is a great moment to consider what you want your job to look like.  And if you are considering changing roles in 2021, it's essential that you get the wheels rolling now and send us your CV.  We would love to support you in securing the best role for you in 2021.

A moment to reflect on our strength as an industry

As the uncertainty and disruption caused by Covid-19 continues and the restrictions in place across the UK are extended up until Christmas, it is great to hear that at last, the hair and beauty industry can operate in all three tiers, and take advantage of the pre-Christmas rush that we have all hoped would be possible.  It has been a very tough year for our industry but here at HBR, we know that we can come back stronger and even more determined as we move into 2021.  These updates always include a call for your CV, and this one is no different.  But this time, we would also like to pause and congratulate everyone in the industry for making it through a very hard year and to offer you love and strength for the coming weeks through to Christmas and beyond.

With Spring comes hope

The daffodils are out and the blossom is starting to bloom on the trees.  Spring is here and it's an amazing feeling after the darkness and difficulty we have all experienced over the winter months.  Lockdown has been in place for a year now, with a few brief bursts of freedom thrown in. And we are all exhausted and desperate to get out and make the most of what life has to offer.  Never has this been more true than for our industry.  All around us are people in dire need of a decent haircut and some essential beauty treatments!  It's logical therefore that here at HBR, our phones are ringing off the hook and our inboxes are filling up - all because salons across the UK (and beyond) are pulling up their shutters and getting ready to reopen!  We say this often but it has never been more urgent than today - we need high calibre candidates right now! So get your CV sent in and lets breathe some life into your career and step into the exciting future together.

26th May 2021

Time for a fresh start?

After around six weeks of our industry being open for business following months of lockdown, things are starting to calm down and people across the UK are once again looking well groomed and fabulous. It's been a crazy few weeks! And for salons, there is finally the opportunity to focus on filling vacancies and getting their teams up to full strength....ready for the summer holiday season. We have been inundated with roles to fill, across every aspect of the industry and throughout the UK and beyond.  Our vacancy page only shows a handful of the roles we need to fill.  So if you are here because you are considering a fresh start, take the plunge and get your CV sent over today. We may just have your perfect job - but if we don't know you're out there, it will pass you by.

Grateful customers and busy salons

Here in the UK, it became possible for hairdressers and beauty therapists to work again after four months of lockdown this week. To say people were desperate for a haircut or to get their nails done would be an understatement! Many of us will have experienced the busiest week of our careers! And with that comes a growing number of very happy people, looking fabulous and feeling amazing. But there is a dark side....salons are busier than ever and the number of roles that need filling is growing every day. If you are looking for a new opportunity, get in touch. We simply cannot find enough candidates for the roles we have and there are some amazing opportunities waiting for the right candidate!

Vacation or Staycation: Time to escape

The summer seems to finally be here, with temperatures reaching record highs again and schools about to break for summer.  After the 18 months we've all had, the idea of a summer holiday feels like heaven for most of us but with all of the uncertainty over where we can travel and what the rules are, it can feel like more effort than it's worth!  Here at HBR, we are all in favour of taking a well earned break and would encourage you all to find some time to get away from whatever your day to day normal is - be that to somewhere glamourous and tropical, or closer to home for a staycation.  And if when you come home, the idea of returning to your normal feels unappealing, you can rest assured there will be someone in HBR, ready to pick up your CV and set you on the path to a fabulous new job throughout the summer months.  So if you fancy creating a new normal, something to get excited about after you've had your break, get in touch today.
