On the first weekend in April 2023 the programme of TOP HAIR Düsseldorf will provide the expert audience with fresh input to get their “heads around” boasting nine shows, twelve congress lectures and over 60 workshops along the lines of “Rock your head”. The details of the programme are still being refined at present, but some programme highlights are already set.
Show highlights featuring Allilon, Josh Lamonaca, Patrick Cameron, Chris Appleton and the top-notch salons of the DACH region
On the show stage of Hall 15 famous hair artists will again demonstrate creative hair stylings and breathtaking fashion in lavishly staged shows this year.
One of the highlights will be the Special Show“PLEAT by Allilon” for Davines at 8.00 pm on Saturday. The British trainer team Allilon headed by founder Johnny Othona is among the most influential impulse providers of the industry and will take the stage in Düsseldorf for the first time to deliver a flamboyant show characterised by passion and precision. Allilon compatriot Josh Lamonaca is a household name on the stages of this world and is again represented with his show “Josh Lamonaca x Mizutani Scissors: A Prisoner to Precision” at TOP HAIR this year. The barbering expert and hairstylist shines with true star quality and is celebrated by the audience for his unconventional techniques. Furthermore, Mizutani Scissors in its show “WE ARE ARTIST, WE CREATE ART!” will present the award-winning Romanian Lucian Busuioc on the big TOP HAIR stage for the first time. This stylist is an eight-time World Champion in the women’s segment and creates extraordinary and modern looks for the “Ladies Avantgarde”.
Another premiere in Düsseldorf is the first live FX Experience by BaBylissPRO presented by their Ambassador Team on stage. Their mission: many surprises and the best tips, tricks and trending cuts for the new year.
Legend Patrick Cameron will also again be chatting to the hair community in Düsseldorf all about sewing. The charming “God of Updos” from New Zealand will perform in the “Access Long Hair” show. So the audience can look forward to gorgeous step-by-step long-hair techniques and highly entertaining do’s and don’ts.
This year will see New Flag present Chris Appleton x Color Wow. Chris Appleton not only “enchants” J.Lo and Kim Kardashian with glamour, charms and great styles but will also cast a spell on the audience.
Featured for the first time in Düsseldorf at the TOP HAIR trade fair will be the Barber's Experience. The barber culture and its stars will be celebrated with barbering, braiding & hair care: “phat” entertainment with special guests from the barbering and hip-hop community.
A fixture at TOP HAIR will, of course, again be the “TOP Salon – The Challenge” award ceremony where the best hair salons from Germany and, for the first time also from Austria and Switzerland, will be recognised with awards in five categories. A new addition is the Eco Future award given for social responsibility, sustainability, climate protection and environmental friendliness.
Future-oriented congress programme with valuable input for the salon business
The hairdressing sector also faces difficult times and many challenges this year – a fact also reflected by this year’s congress programme. In twelve lectures delivered on 1 and 2 April, hairdressing professionals can acquire important management know-how on such topics as staff recruitment, New Work, online and social-media marketing as well as financial management to optimise and align their own hairdresser’s operations successfully for the future. In addition, such themes as Female Empowerment, development of inner strength and a healthy lifestyle provide room for personal development.
The top-notch speakers Dr. Dr. Michael Despeghel, “Goldfrau” Babett Mahnert, Nicole Brandes, Anja Förster, Daniel Golz, Caroline Krüll, Lars Nicolaisen, Cenk Yesil “Cenkinz”, Heiko Schneider and Anja Jenke have a hairdressing background themselves and are well-known coaches and lecturers.
