Hair Festival updates will be hitting your social media feeds right about now. Follow the Hair Festival Instagram and Facebook pages for all the upcoming info about the hugely anticipated June 2021 Sydney event, as well as future competitions and other goodies to start the festival a little early.

In case you missed it, Hair Festival and the Australian Hair Industry Awards (Creative) are taking over the space left by Hair Expo and the Hair Expo Awards, ensuring the June long weekend continues to belong to the hair community and offering place for the industry to shop, learn, compete and connect once again.

Leading media and event experts, BHA Media (a subsidiary of The Intermedia Group, publisher of INSTYLE magazine and and Mocha Publishing (HairBiz magazine and Australian Hair Industry Awards [AHIAs]), will join together in this collaboration over the 2021 Queen’s Birthday weekend in Sydney, honouring a traditional legacy and breathing new life into a changing world.

Taking place on Sunday and Monday June 13 and 14 2021, the events will offer all of the activities the community has come to expect from its dedicated hair weekend.

Presented by BHA Media, a two-day marketplace will showcase exclusive innovations from a variety of hair and beauty brands, acting as a refreshed, product-focused and industry-specific buying experience.

Furthermore, a customised approach to à la carte education under the successful Real Talk Business platform, launched in 2019, will be showcased over the weekend. The esteemed format will present various speakers, topics and brands across both days of the event, with broader and more specific sessions to learn from at your leisure. A ‘festival style’ evening event on the Sunday night will prioritise industry networking and the celebratory nature of the weekend.

On the Monday night, the reinvigorated Australian Hair Industry Awards (AHIAs, Creative), presented by Mocha Publishing, will allow hairdressers to compete in creative awards categories, inspire attendees with trending looks and ensure the industry can revel in the glamour of Australian hair’s night of nights. The categories in this new awards format will reflect all aspects of hairdressing with photographic, creative ability and written submissions, complementing the respected Australia Hair Industry Business Awards, held separately, with this new creative counterpart.

More event details, educators, brands and details will be named in the coming months, and social media is your place to find it all. So register on the website and follow along on social media. We can’t wait to connect with you and show you what’s in store!
