Hair Festival will be back for 2023 and education will continue to be a major focus as the event elevates the hair industry at large. Tickets are available now, with full event entry as well as specific ticket options for the festival’s famed Education Sessions and renowned REALTalk event. It’s all happening at Carriageworks, Sydney, on June 11 and 12.
At REALTalk 2022, five panel presentations from industry leaders as well as keynote speaker presentations from MC Terry Hawkins, Phill Nosworthy and Australian Hairdressing Council CEO Sandy Chong discussed the state of the industry, leadership, customer service and a continuous thread and focus on sustainability.
The 2023 REALtalk program will introduce new speakers and panel topics to garner evolving insights into the industry. The four-hour morning program – from 9:30am to 1:30pm on Sunday June 11 – will broach key topics of body language, gestures, stances and facial expressions in communication, which can be utilised to better understand yourself, your clients and your team. It will also highlight the ongoing industry challenge of undervaluing our work. This topic will extend to teaching effective language to change this perception amongst your team and your customers, uplifting the salon industry as a whole.
Panel discussions at REALTalk will delve into salon staff changes, from the insightful minds of leading salon owners, and the future of online payments and cardless commerce, from experts in the field. The panels will also focus on the importance of education, particularly with salon staff, insights into entrepreneurship from industry icons, and evolving business understandings beyond COVID. These tips will include stress relieving methods for a better and healthier life.
In the many rooms that will showcase the event’s famed Education Sessions, an extensive list of brands and educators will take over the two-day summit. Hair Festival will offer up to 23 different Education Sessions with various artistic and business topics that are sure to inspire.
