Salon International is the perfect place to be inspired, no matter what your budget. Within the exhibition itself, there’s no shortage of stages to inspire you and your team – and all of the shows here are completely free of charge and included in your ticket!
You’ll be able to see amazing hair on stage from leading brands at the show, including ghd, BaByliss Pro, Wahl and Sassoon – with lots more to be announced. On these brand stages, artistic directors and ambassadors will showcase the latest innovations and inspire you with the techniques they have developed by using the tools. On top of this, there’s also an exciting line-up of shows from Hairdressers Journal International across its three stages: the HJ Stage, the Modern Barber Stage and the New Talent Stage in association with Choose Hair.
The HJ Stage will provide three full days of shows from some of the leading names in UK and international hairdressing, with slots throughout the day showcasing the best in cut, colour and styling from household names in the industry. On the Modern Barber Stage, it’s all about barbering and men’s hair with a full line-up of talent representing the very best in gent’s cutting, styling, shaving and grooming. The New Talent Stage will showcase just that; the best emerging names in the British hairdressing industry. From up and coming artists to young artistic teams, this is the place to be for spotting the next big thing. These stages promise thought-provoking shows in up close and personal surroundings – don’t forget to clear your camera roll; there’s no end of inspiration to come over the three days!
Also back at Salon International will be the Fellowship for British Hairdressing, who will once again be hosting a major stage at the show. The Fellowship Stage provides a platform to its members and sponsors for a no-holds barred approach to creativity, inspiration and education. The Fellowship will also play host to one of the most exciting moments of the weekend; finalist auditions for the F.A.M.E. Team. This inspiring education team has made the careers of some of hairdressing’s biggest names, and the next round of hopefuls will be showcasing what they can do live on stage, in front of a huge audience. Why not come along and show your support?
Inspiration can also be found in the Competition Area, where finalists for competitions hosted by HJ, the National Hairdressers’ Federation and Hair and Barber Council will be taking place. Come and watch hairdressers compete, as they create looks for all the competitions: Extension Specialist of the Year sponsored by Remi Cachet; NHF Britain’s Best Ladies Commercial Fashion Look, Afro Stylist of the Year, Barber of the Year, Men’s Cut and Finish, Bridal Hairdresser and Avant Garde Stylist of the Year; and UK Barber Student of the Year and Hairdressing Student of the Year, hosted by the Hair & Barber Council.
