The history of IBHA
IBHA was founded in 2014 by Julie Speed and Debbie Moore, salon directors of Cedars Health & Beauty Centre. Established in 1986, Cedars is an award-winning salon offering the most progressive beauty therapies and advanced treatments.
Having worked with many industry professionals over the years, both nationally and internationally, Julie and Debbie wanted to raise the profile of beauty and holistic training to meet international standards, thus IBHA was born.
The academy offers a unique training school at the forefront of the industry and delivers a variety of career options and business development opportunities. Learners can benefit from the extensive knowledge and experience of the IBHA tutors before embarking on their chosen careers.
