Hair Festival is officially one month away, hurtling into Sydney over June 13 and 14 at Carriageworks and uniting the hair industry over two massive days.

There is so much to look forward to over the long weekend, under the event’s renowned ‘shop, learn, compete, connect’ moniker, and we’ve picked out five major highlights we just can’t wait for.

What are you most looking forward to?

1. The MarketPlace

In Carriageworks’ hallowed halls, you’ll find the FREE MarketPlace of innovations, demonstrations, meeting hubs and so much more. This is your place to discover anything you’ve missed in the industry’s too-long expo hiatus, as leading brands showcase their latest technologies. Did we mention it’s totally free to register? Do that here and now.

2. Education Sessions

On Monday June 14, a bevy of talented hairdressers, organisations and brands will take to the stage for varied creative and business education that you simply can’t miss. You can buy tickets per session or passes that give you access to it all, either way, check out the packed agenda, mark your must-sees on the schedule and be completely inspired.

3. Hair Festival Wonderland

Hairdressers love a party, and honestly it’s been way too long since we all got together to truly celebrate the industry, each other and, really, ourselves – we all deserve it after the past 15 months. Hair Festival Wonderland will be that celebration, leading on after the Australian Hairdressing Council hosted Schmoozefest, also taking place at Hair Festival, and becoming the event of the year. Save a dance for us.

4. Real Talk

Real Talk is back after the inaugural 2019 education event, stacked with panels, industry speakers and insights on business, social media and industry knowledge. The motivating panel of speakers speaks for itself (literally). Gaze at the program and get ready for an education sector that will truly transform your approach to salon life.

5. Hair Festival Competitions

After so long kept apart and in lockdown, it’s time for the national industry to show their skills on stage. Hair Festival’s three dynamic competitions will focus on editorial, men’s and team skills, and we have every faith you’ll nail it. Enter now and prove us right.
