I have moved your post to where it will get a better response. 

There is no such visa that covers someone just for having family in Oz. 

Generally, visas are based on occupation. I believe at the moment, hairdresser is on the list, but, you would need to check if you can pass the skills assessment for it.

I am not sure if barber and hairdresser count as one and the same. May well not in which case, you'd need to have a rethink. You would need to look in to the requirements for the visa. Also only one or possibly two states are sponsoring hairdressers and am not sure they would be states you would be interested in. 

Honestly, I'd not be too hopeful. You perhaps need to consider retraining.

Thanks! Do you know if my occupation will allow me to get a long term visa to eventually live permanently?

I was looking at state sponcership for NT and I feared this may be the problem. Thanks.

if I was to retrain would I have to gain a few years experience also to qualify?

As mentioned, you would need to check if you could pass a skills assessment. If not, then you would need to retrain. However, yes, most occupations require several years post qualification experience in order to pass a skills assessment. You would also need to be aware that the occupation lists change every year at least and occupations are removed, so there is no guarantee that if you retrain you would be eligible.

A good friend of ours came out as a Barber a few years ago, he has his own salon and is doing great. Maybe speak with an agent about your options.
