If you are opening or buying a beauty, hair or health business, it must be registered by Council.
Your business needs to be registered to offer:
- ear piercing
- body piercing
- colonic irrigation
- skin beauty treatments (e.g. facials, laser treatment, dermabrasion, dry needling, foot spa, cosmetic tattooing)
- wigs/hair extensions
- beauty services (e.g. make up, spray tan, eyebrow/eyelash tinting, eyelash extensions)
If you are planning to build or fit out your new business, please refer to our construction guidelines for more information. We also recommend getting Fit-out Approval to approve your plans and identify any issues before construction. This process makes sure your fit-out meets legal hygiene standards and keeps your customers safe.
Use our Permit Finder if you’re not sure what permits you need.
