Hairdressers United Digital Festival Charity in collaboration with Fritz Henkel Foundation
At this globally challenging time, everyone –hairdresser and client alike– needs to feel a strong sense of community that may be missing for some individuals. With this in mind, 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, with a percentage matched by Henkel and the Fritz Henkel Foundation*; regions will also have the opportunity to promote where the funds will go.
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 (for years to come!).
