The purpose of Coiffure EU is to promote the interests of member organisations in the field of employers in its capacity as a confederation of national employers' organisations.
The leading theme is ‘business development instead of marginalisation’. If Coiffure EU wants to bring the hairdressing sector to a further stage, craftsmanship and entrepreneurship should be improved.
Information exchange between the members is at the very heart of Coiffure EU.

Today 20 European countries have already joined Coiffure EU.
We make a distinction between active members and associate members. Active members are the most representative national employers' organisations of hairdressers based in countries that are members or candidate members for the European Union and/or the EFTA. Only the active members are members as defined by law. Associate members are national employers' organisations of hairdressers based in European countries who prefer a less active status.
Since 2016 the membership fee has been based on the number of inhabitants and the Gross National Product.
