International Federation of Hair Research Societies

The International Federation of Hair Research Societies (IFHRS) began around 2010 as an informal international board, a.k.a, “the IB,” of the representatives of the societies attending the World Congress for Hair Research. The group would meet once every 2–3 years at the time of the World Congress. Over the years, it grew more formal, and new regional societies expressed interest to join. The IFHRS now meets quarterly. The main activity of the IFHRS is to rotate hosting the prestigious World Congress for Hair Research (WCHR).

The WCHR schedule is located here.
