The recent edition of TOP HAIR 2023 once again proved that Düsseldorf, Germany is one of the most important platforms in Europe for the professional hair industry.
Over the two-day event, 26,000 trade visitors from 39 countries gathered in the three exhibition halls to get inspiration from the 400 exhibitors and brands from 19 countries, as well as and the top-class show programme.
As always, the wide range on offer included hairstyling supplies, professional haircare and hair products, furnishings, professional articles and services. There was also a clear distinction between order and direct selling sectors, something which was highly appreciated by trade visitors.
Despite a backdrop of the global economic challenges facing the sector, TOP HAIR – DIE MESSE Düsseldorf showed that it perfectly fulfils its function as a trade and networking platform, as well as as an impulse generator with a first-class support programme.
“Exhibitors and protagonists from the hairstyling sector came together here with key decision-makers for good business discussions and look to the future with confidence,” stated TOP HAIR Director Hannes Niemann. “It is also impressive to see the high level of quality and creativity the hairstyling industry has once again delivered,” added Niemann. “This year, TOP HAIR Düsseldorf also placed deliberate emphasis on a broad program of qualification and further training in order to provide hairstyling professionals with many tools to help them market their salons in the best possible way. This offering was very well received.”
Christian Schikora, Managing Director at TOP HAIR International GmbH, agreed: “TOP HAIR – DIE MESSE fully met our expectations this year. Despite persistently difficult conditions for the entire industry generally, the trade fair once again showed that personal contact is possible and important. The exhibitors and protagonists proved their innovative strength, and I could clearly see the visitors’ pleasure and enjoyment. The positive mood was also repeatedly confirmed here in the numerous discussions and the impressively good atmosphere throughout. In 2023, TOP HAIR was once again an important signal to the industry, which embodies strength, confidence and self-assurance. For everyone involved, TOP HAIR Düsseldorf was an inspiration and an important impulse.”
This year, the programme of events was included the participation of many prominent hairdressing names, who returned to TOP HAIR to present their creative skills in several impressive shows. The highlights included: the special show “PLEAT by Allilon”, British barber expert and hairstylist Josh Lamonaca, award-winning stylist Lucian Busuioc, updo legend Patrick Cameron from New Zealand, celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton and multi-talented Detlef D! Soost. The first live FX Experience by BaBylissPRO was also hosted, with their ambassador team on stage.
There were also great attendance figures at more than 60 workshops and twelve congress lectures on five stages. From the latest looks, colour techniques and creative cutting and styling techniques to online and social media marketing and personal development, there was a wide range of information for salons.
The appointment for the next TOP HAIR – DIE MESSE is from March 23rd – 24th, 2024 in Düsseldorf, Germany.
