Hair Expo 2008 took place on the 7 th-9 th June 2008 at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour , Australia .

With over 15,000 visitors from Australia and overseas, Hair Expo is the premier professional salon industry event in the Southern Hemisphere. Hair Expo is in its 32 nd year, delivering 3 days and 3 nights of exhibition, education and events of world class standard. Hair Expo began in Brisbane in 1977, launched by Norris Hair Cosmetics, a wholesaler led by Greg Wightman who saw the need for such an event. In 1988 Anthony & Susa Wynne-Hoelscher purchased Hair Expo and relocated the event to Sydney in 1991. September 2006 saw a new owner appear; Reed Exhibitions, the world’s leading organiser of events delivering contacts, content and communities with the power to transform businesses.
