We are thrilled to support hairdressers from around the world and it was a pleasure to be exposed to so much amazing talent in one evening,” said Revlon Global Brand President, Ms. Anne Talley.

VP of International Marketing Miguel Angel Lopez Paz continued, “The Revlon Professional Style Masters Show is an important event for the hairdressing community. Now in our 9th year, we are thrilled to continue to offer this unique platform where the incredible talent of these hairdressers can be showcased and recognized internationally.”
