Incorporating over 250 of the best industry brands, 18 education sessions, 20 Main Stage shows, dedicated zones and even an appearance by Gina Liano from The Real Housewives of Melbourne – this year’s line-up is pulling out all the stops.
For a tantalising appetiser, here is a sneak peak at what Victoria’s premier hair and beauty event has in store for you in less than three weeks!
MAIN, LAUNCHPAD AND MEDI-STAGE + A LIVE HBIA COMPETITION
For expert tips, tricks, trends and inspiration, see some of the biggest industry names live on the 2015 Main Stage with the likes of brow extraordinaire, Jazz Pampling; hair maestros, Lorna Evans and Caterina DiBiase; American makeup guru, Donna Mee and everyone’s favourite make-up maestro, Rae Morris.
For a taste of the next generation of hair, makeup and beauty talent, head over to the Launchpad Stage – or to tap into the world of medi – and make a stop at the popular Medi-Stage to witness a diverse range of innovative treatments first hand.
Of course, this wouldn’t be a Melbourne affair without an element of fashion. So in a Salon Melbourne/Hair Melbourne first, see Australia’s top hair stylists work alongside emerging fashion designers and makeup artists as the HBIA host its “Definition of Fashion” competition live on stage.
With education high on the agenda for 2015, this year’s show is upping the ante with a diverse selection of creative, practical, strategic and business education sessions. Providing access to some of the best hair, beauty, medi and business experts, Salon Melbourne/Hair Melbourne will offer a chance to get up close and personal with names like X-Factor Makeup Director Martin Bray; TONI&GUY; Rae Morris; Lorna Evans; brow artist to the stars, Jazz Pampling; Caroline Nelson; Simone Lee; Gay Wardle; social media professional, Tiger Pistol; and international beauty expert Donna Mee in a stellar education line-up.
Another 2015 first is the introduction of a 90-minute inspirational session, The Transformation Series. Run by Julie Piantadosi, this innovative session will invite an all-star panel of speakers to motivate and inspire, demonstrating how you can make a difference to change lives every day.
