It is famous for offering visitors a unique platform for trend spotting, inspiration, networking and learning. The Hair and Beauty Charity stand became a hub of activity at the well-loved trade show, attracting 33,000+ attendees.
Through the charity’s tombola, the sale of products donated by generous sponsors and supporters together with annual raffle ticket sales, the Hair and Beauty Charity achieved a historic milestone by raising £14,000. This is the highest amount ever raised by the charity at one event.
