Why Join the ART?
There are several great reasons to become a member of the Association of Registered Trichologists.
A Trusted and Respected Professional Organisation
ART membership means you’re recognised as a true and trusted professional. It means that the training you’ve worked hard to complete is rewarded and appreciated. And it means that the public, your peers and other health professionals know you have the knowledge and skills to provide effective trichology services to clients.
Clients Can Find You Easily
People who need your help and advice will be able to find you very easily. That’s because your contact details and areas of expertise will be published and promoted on our Register of Members. We know that many clients search for a long time for reliable, expert advice on their hair or scalp problems. Now they can quickly find a trusted professional in their area who can help.
The ART Supports Your Business
We’ll support you in your business and career development. We give advice on starting a trichology business, and members can use the ART logo on websites, business cards, promotional materials and salon windows.
The ART Engages With Hair Professionals
Hairdressers get closest to their clients’ hair and scalp every day. They can see where and when clients are having problems. So the ART works closely with the hair profession to ensure they understand what trichology can offer. We encourage them to refer clients with hair or scalp condition to a trusted, qualified trichologist. It means the trichologist builds their clientele and the salon gains further client loyalty. We also encourage hair professionals to take an interest in trichology and consider learning more about it through seminars and training events.
We Promote Trichology
The ART works to ensure that the discipline of trichology is more widely understood. We engage with professional bodies, and are represented at industry shows and events, to spread the word about what trichology is and trichologists do.
