Every profession and industry has codes of ethics, these are standards of conduct and moral principles that the profession or industry should follow. Professional ethics are about how you deal with your clients, fellow workers, friends and family. Professional ethics are very important for the professional running of the salon. Without them, the standards for behaviour and dress would be non-existent. In hairdressing there is also a behaviour code by which you conduct yourself. This code enables you to be successful as a hairdresser and build up your clientele. It is about treating your clients as you would like to be treated yourself in the same circumstances.
