Habia Live Newcastle - 11 July 2011

Habia Live is in Newcastle this July as the Habia Skills Team brings the latest instalment of their innovative and inspiring hair and barbering show to the North East of England.

Held at The Newcastle Marriott Hotel, Metrocentre, on 11 July 2011 in partnership with awarding body VTCT, the show will feature demonstrations from Erik Lander, Emma Moore, David Morgan, and Malachy Weatherall on stage, showing how the latest styles and fashions can be achieved in the salon through vocational training - emphasising the link between gaining qualifications such as NVQs and the workplace skills that meet customer demand.

Habia Live includes an exhibition area featuring some of the top manufacturers, suppliers, colleges , training providers, as well as representatives from VTCT - giving hairdressing professionals the chance to find out more on qualifications and business guidance.

And there will be up close and interactive session from Skills Team members Chris Stewart and MK before and after the show - as well as during the half time break - making sure there are plenty of opportunities to see the styles up close.

The shows have proven extremely popular throughout the UK, performing to sold-out audiences of enthusiastic hairdressers across the country and offering salon professionals and employers the chance to see up close the latest styles and learn cutting edge techniques on how to improve their careers and businesses.

Erik Lander, Skills Team Manager, said, "It's important that salon professionals and managers upgrade their skills to maintain their competitive edge. Salons that invest in training and developing the skills of their staff will be able to meet client demand and continue to grow their business. The best way to explain something to someone is to show them. That's what the Habia Skills Team do - they show you new cuts, techniques and new fashions whilst also encouraging salon staff and managers to take a positive approach to learning."

Tickets cost £15 per person.
