“The hair industry in Indonesia is growing very fast, but its supply is limited. During this event, participants can attend various workshops, be it related to business or hairdressing techniques,” said Adista as quoted by kompas.com.
Held in cooperation with Tiara Kusuma beauty expert, the Salon Entrepreneur Association and the Indonesia Barbershop Association, the event is also set to feature renowned figures in the hairdressing scene, such as Miguel Gutierrez from Nomad Barber, Gareth Vance and Edward Darley from Sassoon, as well as Indonesia's own Rudy Hadisuwarno and Lie Kuang.
Visitors can expect to explore 80 tenants from various parts of the world at the exhibition, including those hailing from Singapore and Taiwan.
Adista said the event expects to present 10,000 hair and beauty professionals. (mas/kes)
