The eleventh TOP HAIR International Trend & Fashion Days Düsseldorf will take part on March 28 and 29, 2015 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, German, presenting a unique combination of world class shows, workshops, congress and trade fair.

“With its distinctive concept of information, further training and entertainment, TOP HAIR DÜSSELDORF is the unchallenged market leader in terms of business, quality and atmosphere. All leading brands are represented here in Düsseldorf showcasing the latest hairstyling trends, products and techniques,” explained TOP HAIR Director Helmut Winkler. About 30,000 trade visitors are expected to attend Germany’s leading hairstyling event to get a comprehensive market overview of hairstyling tools and services as well as salon furniture and furnishings.

First-Class Line-Up of Presenters

A special trademark of TOP HAIR is its show program with first rate presenters. In exclusive and outstanding shows world stars and top international talents will demonstrate the latest trends. Some 1,000 participants will celebrate the art of hairstyling on a 98 foot show stage and four workshop stages.

In addition, a practice-oriented program will run on several workshop stages demonstrating hands-on know-how and techniques for hair cutting, coloring and styling. In 2015, the “Schnittfabrik” (“cutting factory”) will be extended to include several new creative elements. “We once again placed very special importance to the high quality range here – one that we further develop and optimize in the interests of the sector together with our partner, TOP HAIR International GmbH,” added Helmut Winkler. Due to this partnership the program can be custom designed to the hairstylist’s needs and thereby guarantee the trade fair’s high level offers.

Professional Trade Fair at the Highest Level

A special characteristics in all segments of TOP HAIR DÜSSELDORF is its professional communicative atmosphere and high-quality setting. The event has become the No.1 communication platform for decision-makers from all the major names in the sector. The exhibition halls feature modern stands, spacious aisles and tastefully designed relaxation zones. About 400 exhibitors and brands will offer everything hairstylists need for further training and inspiration. The clear separation of the orders and direct sale areas will be continued in 2015. The focus of the congress will on further training and topics such as managing staff, salon management and personal development.

Top Salon Award Restructured

In 2015, the best hair salons will also receive the Top Salon Award. The criteria remain the same: winners are the most successful salons whose concept, expertise, excellent service and commercial success form a complete package. New is the change to the categories: until now the salons were divided according to size while in 2015, one winner will be selected in five special categories (Design, Marketing, Employer, Concept and Best Practice). Five salons per category will be nominated.

German Hairdressing Award back in Düsseldorf

The glamorous gala hosting the renowned German Hairdressing Awards will once again be held in Düsseldorf in 2015. At the gala evening on March 29, 2015, Germany’s best stylists will receive the German Hairdressing Award. “By running parallel with the German Hairdressing Award, TOP HAIR DÜSSELDORF once again gains additional significance for the sector and hairstylists have not one but two reasons to come to Düsseldorf. In any case I believe the German Hairdressing Award is in very good hands here with us. After all, Düsseldorf is the hairstyling capital. For every 100,000 inhabitants there are 112 hairstylists – more than in any other German city,” added Helmut Winkler.
