The line-up began with our own home grown talent. ELEVEN Australia’s Co-Creative Director’s Joey Scandizzo and Andrew O’Toole did Australia proud by showcasing a progressive look that drew upon exciting Australian events like White Night and Vivid. The duo employed light, projection, music and photographic effects to create a futuristic hair trend that was bold and original.

The next act was sent straight from Spain, with Revlon Professional’s edgy X-presion team showing why they’re internationally renowned in the world of avant-garde styling. Marc Antonio Restrepo, Jorge Cancer and Jose Luis Almendral utilised colour, cuts and styling to create distinct looks that had stylists inspired to include elements in their own salon styles.

The Independent Collection by American Crew aimed to prove that men’s styles can still be exciting, with Paul Hanson and Craig Wilson using retro styles to bring back the comb over and the feather. The strong editorial aesthetic may have drawn from previous decades, but proved perfectly on trend.
