You chose to join the beauty industry because it is vibrant and creative.

Because it challenges us and excites us every day we go to work for our clients. You care about maintaining the highest standards of professionalism in our business. You're serious about the business of beauty, so join us in promoting our industry.

The goals of the Florida Beauty Industry Council are simple:

  • Elevate our profession.
  • Build strong leadership.
  • Give us a unified voice.

With a unified voice, we will continue the fight to create a tip tax credit for the salon industry - a dollar for dollar tip tax credit for FICA taxes paid on employee tips. We will continue to fight any challenge to the licensing that protects our business and maintains our high standards.

We will continue to ask for fairness and equitable regulation across all cosmetology business models.
