Colour World; everything you need to know

Colour World is being talked about everywhere – make sure you’re in the know! This is the most fun event in hairdressing dedicated to celebrating colour – if ‘colour was a party – this would be it’! Here’s the low-down:


Colour World is a two-day event held in a big venue and dedicated to sharing colour knowledge and inspiring each other with ideas, concepts and information that will help you grow. The event is always held somewhere with masses of natural light (important for viewing colour) and places to hang out including a food yard (important for meeting and sharing with friends).

More Colour World details…

The best part – one day ticket gets you in for as long as you want and there are no additional fees for the seminars. Colour is anti-zoo meaning there are no barriers between presenters and visitors, no stages or divisions. You can stand shoulder to shoulder with the colourists as they work, pose questions, film and ask advice. It’s so friendly. 

Colour World is the only totally-colour independent event in the UK hair industry. We celebrate colourists, bringing people together to connect, learn and inspire. Colour World is supported by numerous sponsors and collaborators and not owned by one colour house.

This year we take up a new residence in Shoreditch Electric – a glorious old power station in Hoxton Square, near the Old Street tube. Our home for 2023 is more central London (on the central London Underground) but retains the character and heritage of an inspirational setting for our 2-day event.

Live Colour Shair demos

Live Colour Shair demos mean you can watch an entire colouring process from start to finish. Our anti-zoo, no-barrier policy means you can go right up to the colour demos, film and ask questions about what each colourist is doing. Come prepared to listen, learn and take notes! Questions are very welcome at Colour World as it is an event for networking and sharing inspiration. There is no backstage; everything is out in the open, creating the perfect educational space. 

As always, we’re hosting great brands sharing their knowhow and product inspiration. Come along to see the sponsor spaces and have the opportunity to learn more about what different brands are doing.
