Are you passionate about hairstyling and want to make a difference in the industry? Introducing OPHA, a non-profit association founded by industry professionals. Check out our Board of Directors page for more info on our team.

Join our mission to Promote, Protect, and Progress the trade of Hairstyling in Ontario.

Did you know that Hairstylist is the 3rd largest trade in Ontario? It’s time to give it the attention it deserves. We believe that hairstylists should receive the same resources, funding, and support as other compulsory trades in our province and that’s what we are fighting for!

But here’s the exciting part: we need YOU and your awesome expertise to make it happen. Together, we can evolve and thrive in the hairstyling world like never before!

So How Can You Help?

It’s simple! Become a member below and join our collective of hairstyling superheroes. You’ll get access to exclusive opportunities, industry insights, and a community of fellow hairstylists who are just as passionate as you are.

Until the end of 2023, we are offering FREE membership!
