From business to creative, education plays a pivotal role in the hairdressing industry.

Across both days of Hair Festival there will be a wide education offering to suit  every facet of hairdressing. On Sunday the esteemed REALtalk format will present various curated sessions with keynote speakers, panels and highly relevant topics in 2021. Alongside REALtalk, both Sunday and Monday there will be Festival Sessions and individual education classes from a diverse range of brands.

Hair Festival - Learn

REALtalk provides the platform and space for the many educators, along with companies, who want to showcase their education portfolio. Our customised approach of the à la carte education (under the successful REALtalk platform, launched in 2019), as well as individual classes to attend, will be showcased over the entire weekend.
