Hair Expo is the major hairdressing trade show in the southern hemisphere and the 2005 show is once again at Sydney's Convention and Exhibition centre on the 11th, 12th and 13th of June. VirtualHairCare will be there to bring you all of the latest styles and innovations.

Whether you are interested in how you look or are a hairdressing professional, the award submissions provide us with a great insight into the looks we can create. Look out for more info about the event and more great images across the Virtualhaircare site.
