Every year in October, London Excel host an international hair show for all professional stylists…

It is an amazing chance for us to see new trends, products and tools of the trade, as well as looking at gallery full of images that have been submitted for hairdresser of the year awards, as well as regional finalists.

All the entries were incredible this year and it’s so interesting to study what another hairstylist does and how they achieve it.

This year Marl Leeson, artist team of the year, really stood out and we were all impressed with their end result.

It’s always a busy day when we are there as there is so many different catwalks, inspiration talks and demonstrations going on but we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and were surprisingly bright as a daisy after an evening of cocktails at the Shard!
