It is by reputation one of the most anticipated events included in the Hair Expo Program each year and 2015 proved no different for the GenerationNext Gala, with the hallowed stage bought to life by Australia’s hottest young talents!

AND WHILST TEXTING DURING A SHOW IS USUALLY CONSIDERED A SOCIAL FAUX PAS, AT THE GENNEXT GALA IT WAS NOT ONLY WELCOMED BUT ENCOURAGED – WITH THE AUDIENCE INVITED TO VOTE FOR THEIR FAVOURITE PERFORMANCE! WITH COMPETITION FIERCER THAN EVER, LA BIOSTHETIQUE’S TEAM OF NOUVEAUX TALENTS (LED BY LA BIOSTHETIQUE CREATIVE MANAGER – AND FORMER CULTURE COVER STAR – ALEXANDER FUCHS) TOOK OUT THE PEOPLES CHOICE.

“Working with the Nouveaux Talents this year on our GenNext Gala opening show for La Biosthetique was incredible,” Alexander says of the experience. “It’s is just so wonderful seeing everyone putting their heart and souls into this and seeing the end result on the night when everyone’s hard work comes together – winning the People’s Choice Award on top was then just the icing on the cake.

“The whole team is still on a high a week after the show and that is exactly what it is all about – providing the future of hairdressing with experiences like this and making them spread their wings.”
