Haare 2008

Hair trade show
 
Bright autumn days shone for members of the hair and beauty industries: The HAARE 2008 enthused participants, visitors and companies alike at the booths of this trade show.
 
The proof is in the numbers. More than 18000 visitors attended the N├╝rnbergMesse from October 19th to the 21st. An increase of more than 20 percent compared to the 2004 show. A highlight of the show was the combination of the German and Bavarian Hair Championship.
 
The HAARE 2008 offered an outstanding mix of shows, competitions, workshops, and information. "The perfect basis for the success of it", says Andreas Popp, President of the German Association of Hairdressers, ZV.
 
One of the hair show's highlights, the competitions, displayed an amazing amount of professionalism and talent. The German and Bavarian championships with more than 140 competitors were a visitors' magnet. "The level of accomplishments was impressive," said Popp, "the participants showed extraordinary creativity in the areas of hairstyles and make-up. It was a grand celebration for the young elite of the profession."

A nod to space age and sci-fi. An extravagant haircut with mixed textures shows one of the most interesting silhouettes of the season. The hair was cut in a round line across the forehead, leaving extra short bangs and very pointed sideburns.
 
The exact line runs further above the ears and ends in a pointed, longer nape. The balancing attraction to the straight lines comes from the ruffled chops on top and at the back of the head. Gel and spray hold it all together and up.
