The Texas International Hair Show is a show for Beauty professionals in the Industry to come and trade and buy products. All attendees are required to be licensed professionals or business owners. Our exhibitors rent booth space to have access to a certain type of customer. Texas Hair Show allows unlicensed guests to attend, however, only professionals can purchase professional products.
