Did you know, hairdressers in the UK are subject to a basic DBS check?

What is a DBS or CRB check?

DBS checks are statutory checks carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service on behalf of the Home Office.

The Disclosure and Barring Service are a public body with a remit to keep the public, particularly children and vulnerable adults, safe.

When you apply to work as a hairdresser, your DBS checks will be used to ensure you are right for public-facing work.

All frontline roles in the UK are subject to DBS checks under the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act to ensure the public are properly safeguarded from those who are not right for public-facing roles.

Following your DBS check, you will receive your DBS certificate through the post and online. You will need to show the DBS certificate to your employer to commence work as a hairdresser. The certificate will list any information found. If nothing is found the certificate will be blank.

Recruitment for all frontline roles listed in the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act are subject to the completion of a DBS check. DBS checks were formerly known as CRB checks so DBS checks and CRB checks are the same thing.

A basic DBS check for a hairdresser will require a search for any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions.
