Industry Relevance 

Top Hair International has established itself as the world's leading trade fair for the hairdressing industry in Europe. Since its inception in 2005, the fair has been held annually at Messe Düsseldorf in Germany, attracting thousands of trade visitors from around the world. Over the nearly twenty years, the trade fair has grown in its influence and has reached markets outside the continent.

The fair offers a unique opportunity for hairdressing professionals to learn from the best, whether it’s by attending workshops or sitting through the many world-class hair shows. Visitors explore a diverse range of products and services, including hair care, professional articles, cosmetics, nails, spa, fashion jewelry, wigs, hairpieces, salon equipment, and salon decoration. The event boasts the participation of major companies and brands, providing attendees with an extensive overview of the industry. The show floors are divided into the following twelve product categories: 

  • Hair cosmetic products
  • Tools of the trade
  • Furniture and Furnishings
  • Cosmetics and nails for hairdressers
  • Wigs and Hairpieces
  • Decorative and promotional aids
  • Wellness products for hairdressers
  • Trade literature
  • Further education / Training institutes
  • Computer
  • Services
  • Barbering

The fair is well known for its comprehensive supporting program, which includes presentations of products, hairdressing and styling techniques, and make-up demonstrations. The Top Hair cutting factory showcases the latest cutting techniques, while the Top Hair congress features speakers who discuss current trends and issues, tackle the big challenges of the day, and paint their vision for the future of the industry.

A recent move to hold the fair in conjunction with Beauty in Düsseldorf (the leading international trade fair for cosmetics, nail and foot care, wellness, and spa) in 2015 has led to an even higher profile and attention from senior buyers through organic synergy. Both events are simply made to be run together. 

Today, Top Hair International has become a significant event in the hairdressing industry, whether it has to do with procuring new products or provide the necessary space for professionals to truly network and share knowledge.
