Salon International

Toni&Guy

Swotting up on all things hair, the Hair team visited London’s Excel this weekend to immerse ourselves in this major trade exhibition.

Unless you are a hairdresser, salon owner or involved with the sale and manufacture of hair products, there’s a good chance that you won’t have heard of Salon International but, take it from us, it’s one of the biggest, most exciting annual exhibitions taking place in this country – essential for anyone in the hair profession, and the ideal place to be inspired and excited by the latest hair innovations and the creative and educational work of some of the world’s leading hairstylists.

We loved the super luxurious extensions showcased by Balmain, the gorgeous retro Marilyn curls created for Sexy Hair and the mind-blowing array of shades on show at the Crazy Color stand. Best of all were the live demonstrations by the likes of hair-up King, Patrick Cameron, the TIGI creative team, Sassoon and Toni&Guy.

Ask your stylist if he or she visited Salon International and keep your fingers crossed that they’ll soon be introducing to their salon one or more of the wonderful ideas they witnessed there!
