Habia International

Habia’s international work refers to the partnerships Habia has developed with international associates.

Habia is working with international partners to help implement the UK standards in their own countries, to raise standards internationally and promote good practice – standards that are held in high regard.

Habia Expertise

Habia has been developing standards, frameworks, qualifications and training programmes in the UK for over 25 years and internationally for approximately 20 years.

It is one of the most respected and regarded as one of the most effective, organisations of its sort in the education sector.

What's more, Habia is valued by the industry it represents and works for and is able to call on the support and expertise of some of the leading names in the world of hair and beauty.

International Reciprocity

Habia and the National Cosmetology Association in the USA have an agreement that gives anyone holding a Habia NVQ in Hairdressing, Beauty Therapy or Nail Services at Level 3 the opportunity to have their qualifications recognised in those states. This means anyone who has already achieved this standard should be authorised to work as a hairdresser or beauty therapist in those states without the need for the further technical or language exams.

The countries that Habia has reached this agreement with are:

United States of America (38 states; Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Delaware, District of Colombia, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming, plus Puerto Rico and Guam)
