Rising Stars Showcase
BHBE will stage the ‘Rising Stars Showcase’ on Sunday 28th July 2019 on Centre Stage at the Expo for the third year running. The experience gives 8 of the best up-and-coming apprentice hairdressers a chance to showcase their styling skills in front of hundreds of industry peers and professionals. They will have the opportunity to create one overall look and bring these looks to life by presenting a long-haired female model on the main catwalk.
