About The Event

After a challenging year for the hair industry, the community is looking forward to a revival in 2021 with an industry first. The June long weekend has always belonged to the hair community and, with the recently announced cancellation of Hair Expo Australia and the Hair Expo Awards, two dynamic new events will once again allow the hair community to shop, learn, compete and connect with the entire hair sector.

Hair Festival - Shop


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

Presented by The Intermedia Group, 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 shopping 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.

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.


As a longstanding hair industry weekend, the Queen’s Birthday will continue to act as a meeting point and beacon for our salon community, showcasing the renowned solidarity and spirit in hairdressing.
