Thank you to everyone participated in our 2019 event! 

Let’s Go!

Ireland’s No.1 Show and Competition Event!

Did you attend our #FHA19?
We still can’t get over the talent from this year’s ALFAPARF Milano Fantastic Hairdressing awards, the largest and most widely anticipated awards ceremony in the hairdressing industry on the island of Ireland. What an incredible day on the competition floor, topped off by an outstanding performance by Paul Stafford and his team.

Again this year the iconic awards was held in Dublin’s RDS on October 20th with an action packed day of competitions, amazing shows and capped off by our now, infamous after party at House on Leeson Street.

Ten competitions in total, all judged by our team of International Judges from across Europe. This year’s show theme marked the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall.

So, if you want to dream big or want to be inspired by others,

we look forward to seeing you In 2020!
