In major international hairdressing news, global hairdressing event staple Salon International will be back in London in October 2021 after its 2020 hiatus, now that COVID restrictins have eased in the UK. The event will take olace at ExCeL London from October 16 to 18.

The weekend promises education, inspiration and innovation and an important return to networking for the UK salon community. It will showcase international hair and beauty brands as well as stages and shows in a packed schedule headlined by important education as presented by renowned and emerging talent.

Attendees will also see a first look at the work of finalists for HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards, sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional, at the Salon International Gallery. Throughout the event, health and safety will remain a priority as organised in accordance with Government guidelines and with the support of experienced, specialist organisers to stay COVID safe.

While our national hairdressing community won’t be able to get to London from Australia for the event, we’re sending best wishes to the UK salon industry that can celebrate again after a difficult year and a half.
