Hair Festival 2022 is rapidly approaching over the June long weekend, and we can’t wait to reconnect the hair industry over two major days of education, networking, competition, partying and more. The event boasts a free MarketPlace of the latest innovations, versatile festival education sessions and RealTALK business lessons, competitive opportunities to win prizes and the Wonderland party that you need to attend.

For hairdressers in Sydney, you can drive right up to Carriageworks to attend the event, while interstate hairdressers can truly make it a weekend getaway. For those travelling from out of town or state, there’s a lot to look forward to about a bona fide long weekend of hair after more than two long years of lockdown, border closures and separation.

Here are some things you can look forward to about long weekend travels.

Getting Away

A lot of the past two years has been spent dreaming about packing your bags and migrating literally anywhere else. This Hair Festival weekend you can put real life aside and indulge in the travels you’ve been waiting for – while still knowing you’re bettering your business and yourself in the process.

Treating Yourself

A weekend catering to you is just what’s necessary. Hair Festival has a number of hotel partners that offer classic or modern luxe, becoming the perfect place to put your feet up after a long day at the Festival, and situated conveniently close to both the event and other parts of the city.


We call it networking but the hairdressing industry coming back together feels more like a family reunion. Hairdressers will travel in from every corner of the country (and beyond) for a weekend jam-packed with industry activities and opportunities to reconnect.

Experiencing Sydney

Those travelling into Sydney will have to carve out some time to experience the city, especially after more time away from trips and sight-seeing in the last couple of years. Take the Saturday to shop, dine and explore around the city, making it an even more perfect weekend.

Focusing on Hair

Devoting two full days to your passion is an exciting proposition – whether you take the time to grow your knowledge from some inimitable experts, compete in your chosen field, shop for the latest innovations, celebrate the industry or do it all, it will be a weekend to remember.

We can’t wait to see you there!
