You can already start planning your year around 2016’s major hair events – we have all the dates you need to diarise immediately.
While there will be dozens of fashions shows, brand-sponsored awards, expos, 6 issues of INSTYLE, parties, education dates and more over the 365 days, these 4 occasions provide a snapshot of the biggest highlights to come.
So bring out the highlighter and start circling these essential things to look forward to in 2016.
1. INSTYLE January-February
INSTYLE’s first issue of the New Year will also celebrate the magazine’s 30th anniversary. That’s right, we’re breaking out the party hats and streamers for the big 3-0 and the January-February issue will have the momentous occasion front and centre with some special features to honour our 30 years in the industry. Stay tuned.
2. Hair Expo: June 11-13
There’s a change coming for Hair Expo 2016, with the event moving to Melbourne for the first time. All the education shows, stands and, of course, awards will be Victoria-bound, with the event to occur across three big days at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. June can’t come fast enough.
3. Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia: May 15-21
MBFWA has left its usual April timeslot for a mid-May appointment, with the change allowing for designers to show off their resort wear and take advantage of more of a sales period. The change is based on designer complaints that April was too late to take fall orders and too early to launch resort wear. Reliably big names in fashion will make MBFWA a must-attend, as always.
4. Australian Hair Fashion Awards: April 10
The deadline has just passed for entries into the AHFAs, meaning it must be closer than we thought. This premier hair and fashion event is a mere four months away, and guests will return to Luna Park to celebrate the artistry of the industry and witness a performance by an as yet unannounced celebrity guest.
Which of these countdown-worthy dates are you looking forward to?
