TOP HAIR – DIE MESSE Düsseldorf – on 7 and 8 May 2022 it will be curtains up again on a high-calibre hairdressing event in a class of its own. The programme in halls 15, 16 and 17 offers two compact days of extravagant shows, breath-taking stagings and exclusive business knowledge shared by international industry giants. At the TOP HAIR trade fair, the stars of the scene will show their latest collections and will also be on hand to demonstrate the techniques. Featuring a unique combination of shows, workshops, congress and trade fair, TOP HAIR Düsseldorf provides a first-class platform and brings the hairdressing and stylist community together.
Colourful trade fair experience and big industry festival
In view of the development of the Corona pandemic and in particular the spread of the Omikron variant in Germany and Europe, TOP HAIR DÜSSELDORF could not take place in March as planned. “We are confident that the general conditions will have improved by May so that nothing will stand in the way of a successful staging of our trade fair. The exhibitors missed above all the personal encounters, good conversations and the colourful and lively live experience in the exhibition halls. As a meeting place for the professional hairdressing scene, Düsseldorf brings together people who successfully pursue the business and also live it passionately. After the mandatory break visitors can look forward to a particularly high number of exhibitors’ innovations just waiting to be discovered”, says Michael Degen, Executive Director at Messe Düsseldorf. Visitor tickets already purchased will of course remain valid for the new date.
“By rescheduling the trade fair to May we managed not only allow our exhibitors and visitors to reliably but also to ensure clearly improved prospects regarding anticipated international attendance. Meanwhile, the current course of the pandemic – as well as the roadmap developed by policymakers to open up public life again – provide a very solid basis for the event to take place in May under the most positive conditions imaginable. We are very satisfied with the number of registrations and are particularly pleased that several exhibitors who had actually withdrawn for March will be back. The postponement has now added a lot of new exhibitors who are eager to present their innovations and new products live. The entire Messe Düsseldorf team and its partners are doing everything they can with competence and enthusiasm to make the TOP HAIR trade fair an unforgettable experience. Our already well-tested hygiene concept under the motto "PROTaction" will serve as the basis for successfully and safely running a trade fair in Corona times," adds Director Hannes Niemann.
Also commenting on this Christian Schikora, CEO of TOP HAIR International GmbH, said: “After two long years of ‘bonjour tristesse’, a period of virtual meetings and cancelled or hybridised events, in 2022 that time will finally have come around again: our visitors, exhibitors, protagonists but also partners of Messe Düsseldorf – and, needless to say – the entire TOP HAIR Team – are so delighted. Personal encounters again at last, a cup of coffee at the exhibition stand, real exchanges with wonderful and competent people and that feeling of once again immersing ourselves in our great industry – all of us have missed this so much. Our joint aspiration is to restore the ranking of “TOP HAIR – die Messe” and to build on its accustomed appeal, high spirits and surprises. Of course, we will also ensure that enthusiasm, emotions and fun will not be left by the wayside. Together we will not only celebrate one of the most beautiful hairdressing trade fairs – we will also prepare a festival for the industry.”
Rock your Head with a first-class show program
The trade fair provides input for, and a perfect overview of hairdressers’ demands, professional haircare, hair cosmetics, professional furnishings and services – clearly broken down into order and cash & carry segments. But it is above all the professional and communicative atmosphere as well as the high-quality setting that ensure unrivalled conditions for maintaining contacts and promoting exchange among colleagues.
On the show stage in show hall 15, the best of the hairdressing industry will show their skills. Also for this year top-class teams have announced themselves, which will inspire the spectators.

New focus through Corona and digitalisation
Those travelling to TOP HAIR in Düsseldorf in May will see a sector no longer just focusing on wash, cut and blow-dries. Inspired by the spread of digitalisation more and more hair professionals are now also looking to the opportunities offered by new technologies and communication channels.
Playing a central role here is the top-notch TOP HAIR Congress that in 2022 once again also offers European hair professionals many valuable strategic impulses for their businesses. In each roughly one-hour session top-notch speakers like Regina Först, Fabio Barattucci, Gerd Achilles, Heiko Schneider, Ralph Goldschmidt, Steffi Burkhart, Tanja Copertino, Guido Paar & Oliver Schmidt, Trudelies Grigoletto, Salvatore Caserta and Ralf Osinski will share easy and intuitive entrepreneurial and strategic knowledge from the fields of marketing, salon management, conflict resolution, personal development as well as management. https://www.top-hair-international.com/congress
Düsseldorf will also see the coveted TOP SALON AWARD being presented in five categories. Contestants have to prove their skills in the fields of Design (forward-looking interior design), Employer (talent recruitment and training), Concept (innovative business models), Marketing (outstanding marketing) and Best Practice (here success and tradition go hand in hand).
