Welcome to the first issue of the HAIR2010 e-newsletter. We will provide you with regular updates to keep you abreast of all the developments in the lead up to the 6th World Congress for Hair Research being held in Cairns, Australia from 16-19 June 2010.

Cairns is the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and Tropical North Queensland and the only place in the world where the rainforest meets the reef. Its spectacular natural attractions, tropical climate and friendly, easy-going people, will make this a unique Congress experience for all delegates AND, in keeping with the dress norms for far North Queensland, jackets and ties will not be required.
