Brisbane Hair & Beauty Expo 2018

Brisbane Hair & Beauty Expo 2018

This was the 4th year that we’ve both educated and exhibited at Brisbane Hair & Beauty Expo and it’s been so great to see it grow to be such a great event. The exhibition floor was abuzz with a mix of education and live competitions – with over 500 competitors! It was such a pleasure to judge both the Vintage Bride and the Avant-garde sections. Congratulations to all the competitors and winners.

So what did we get up to?

Sunday on the main stage we presented 3 of the looks from our Corde Collection. It was so exciting to showcase how our unique tools help to make styling easier and more efficient. Each look was prepped with our Timesaver Brush and we showed how our NEW BIGtail Comb works.

The soon to be released Kingpin is a total game-changer when it comes to holding long, thick hair and let’s not forget Bungee Tape – the NEW way to secure your pony tails with a seamless finish.

Chatting with visitors at our stand after the show is always a highlight for our team, and one of the comments we were over the moon to receive was:

 “I love visiting your stand because you always have something new and exciting to use”

And to be honest, that’s our goal for every expo and every class: bring something new to keep both us and our students excited and up to date.

My models were dressed by Corde Macrame and the makeup was beautifully done by the students from The Brisbane School Of Beauty.

On Sunday afternoon it was an honour to share the stage with Brad Ngata in our “Runway To Reality” session. Brad showcased 3 amazing runway editorial looks with plenty of glitter and shimmer. 

During the session I also presented 3 looks including loads of techniques to take back to the salon. 

My models were dressed by Gabrielle Stephens from Collecting Pretty Boys, jewellery was from Jeannette Maree & make up for the Expo by The Brisbane School Of Beauty.

 On Monday it was so great to see, among other visitors, bus loads of students! The future of our industry. 

We showcased more looks from our Corde Collection. 

 Every minute the expo was open we educated stylists and makeup artists, showing them how easy our unique tools can make their long hair styling.

Our educators Kyleen Phillips and Aimee Golman were on fire. Lets not forget the child labour, with our daughter Holly at the stand who wore her high pony with Bungee Tape so well. If you have ever called our office you highly likely would have talked to Russell and he really enjoyed talking to you all too.

Keep in touch and see you next year!
