Caroline Larissey Steps Down from Joint Council for Cosmetic Procedures (JCCP)



12 June 2024, Caroline Larissey, Chief Executive of the National Hair & Beauty Federation (NHBF), has announced her decision to step down from her role at the Joint Council for Cosmetic Procedures (JCCP) after five years.


Commenting on her decision, Caroline Larissey said: "During my tenure at the JCCP, I had the privilege of supporting its creation and serving as a Trustee. The JCCP has been established as a vehicle to promote patient safety in the world of non-surgical aesthetics and hair restoration surgery. It achieves this by the provision of information/advice to the public and its 'Practitioner Register'. My involvement with the JCCP was originally through a previous work role at Habia as Head of Quality and Standards for over six years, which subsequently progressed to being invited to be a Trustee in a personal capacity, as recognition of my contribution and commitment to raising standards in non-surgical cosmetics (aesthetics). As I step down from this role, I am excited to focus my efforts on championing the voice of the NHBF and the wider beauty sector.


The UK hair and beauty sector is a vibrant and dynamic, empowering individuals, promotes self-expression, and contributes to overall wellbeing and self-care. With a substantial £4.6 billion contribution to the UK economy, the sector plays a vital role in driving footfall to high streets, supporting jobs, and fuelling growth nationwide.


The NHBF remains dedicated to supporting its Members and the sector in navigating the implementation of the Health and Social Care Act and any resulting licensing scheme. I am committed to ensuring a smooth transition and supporting the next beauty representative in this role.


Our vision at the NHBF is to foster a thriving sector that is respected for the creative careers it provides and where its staffing needs are fully met. The sector continues to be a positive force in local communities, achieving contributing to net-zero targets. Ahead of the General Election, the NHBF has outlined its recommendations for the next government in its Manifesto, which include recognising the sector's value to the UK economy and communities, promoting apprenticeships and providing support for employers, enhancing the sector's role in supporting community wellbeing and NHS services.


As we celebrate the resilience, innovation, and creativity of the UK hair and beauty sector, we also acknowledge its immense potential to drive growth, foster inclusivity, and inspire positive change in our society. The future is bright for the UK beauty sector, and with the continued support of the Government and Parliament, it will undoubtedly continue to shine."


David Sines, Chair of the JCCP, expressed his gratitude for Caroline's invaluable contributions, highlighting her support, patience, and perseverance during challenging times. He wishes her the very best in her future endeavours and reaffirms the JCCP's respect and commitment to supporting the sector.
