The performances at GenNext 2019 were a sensational illustration of talent and a highlight of Hair Expo 2019. Eight teams from Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom pushed the boundaries of creativity in hair through a stunning series of theatrical runway shows, illustrating their creativity and technical skill. The event was hosted by 2018 & 2019 Hair Expo Awards Educator of the Year Jules Tognini and US entertainment reporter Richard Reid, and closed with a sensational finale act by Robert Cromeans and Angus Mitchell. The act celebrated global trends for current and future hair fashion and was a show-stopping display of entertainment, inspiration and hairdressing dexterity.

“Tonight was incredible, I’m so grateful for our amazing team. I couldn’t have imagined the show to go any better, it was just amazing. I’m so happy with the results – the styling, the hair – the team just gave it their all,” Mary said. “The inspiration for the show came from a video clip by the artist FKA Twiggs. I loved the cultural diversity in that clip and I really wanted to bring it to life. We’re a diverse team and it really represents us. We’re so thrilled to have been able to present and create magic for everyone to see tonight,” she said.
