Hairdressers United Digital Festival

Aurore Caboche The Blog

Broadcasting on the 5th May, Henkel Beauty Care Professional is proud to present Hairdressers United; the first 24hr global online hair festival!

In a celebration of industry solidarity, the unique concept brings together some of the world’s biggest hair and beauty care professionals under one digital roof. The 24hr live stream event will see 36 different hair artists, from 19 countries, in 13 different time zones present a variety of educational and creatively inspiring content including:

  • Hair colour how-to’s( like balayage and blur techniques)
  • Cut and styling inspiration, including barbering techniques
  • Up-do tutorials, including bridal and braiding trends

We can’t wait !

A world’s first

At this globally challenging time, Henkel took the decision to make Hairdressers United a charity event; aiming to raise funds through user engagement and donations during the live stream. Any revenue will be given back to the community; regions will be able to choose where the funds will go, whether that be a specific industry body that’s in need, the Red Cross or United Ways.

As a ‘never been done before’ event, the first of its kind hair festival also aims to set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title on 5th May 2020, for the ‘longest online hair education seminar streamed over the internet’ – something that would be an amazing achievement for everyone involved.

Brands and Hair Artists

A truly unique event, the experience unites all Henkel Beauty Care Professional brands and is set to inspire hair and beauty professionals across the globe.

For Schwarzkopf Professional, hair artists include global ambassadors, Lesley Jennison (@lesleyjennison) and Tyler Johnston (@tylerjohnstonhair), from the USA, Linh Phan (@bescene), representing Brazil, Natan Correia (@natancorreia) and from Spain, the collaborative creative team X-presion (@xpresioncreativos).
