Low risk hair and temporary make up businesses must apply for "once-off" or "on-going" registration. Other businesses must renew their Public Health and Wellbeing Act premises annually. If you were registered as a low risk hair and beauty business but then want to start providing higher risk beauty services you must contact Council to apply for an upgraded registration

We have developed ‘Guidelines for new and transferring health and wellbeing businesses’ to help you understand your legal requirements.

We will investigate all complaints made in relation to these types of businesses. To lodge a complaint, contact us on 1300 367 700.
