This year's Alternative Hair Show, Equilibrium, takes place on Sunday October 12 at 8pm at The Royal Albert Hall, London, celebrating the artistry and pure creativity of hairdressing teams from across the globe and, at the same time, raising much-needed funding for “Fighting Leukaemia”; a charity set up by Tony and Maggie Rizzo to support Leukaemia sufferers.

This is the 33rd London Alternative Hair Show and marks an exciting 12 months during which Alternative Hair has had a highly successful show in Rome; welcomed John Frieda as Global Patron and has joined with Hair Raising and GOSH for a charity fun-run “Race For The Kids” in Battersea Park, Central London.

Over the last few years, the VISIONARY AWARDS, sponsored by TIGI, have become an intrinsic part of the eveningAnthony Mascolo believes passionately in promoting creative talent. From his idea to create an award recognizing the artistry of hairdressers, the VISIONARY AWARDS was born.

At first a relatively small competition, the VISIONARY AWARDS has grown into a photographic competition with a continually growing, international entry. And, from the many entries received from across the globe, the finalists are invited to each present a model during the VISIONARY AWARDS SHOW, a stand-alone show within the Alternative Hair Show.

A panel of top hairdressers and journalist carry out the judging before the show and at the end of the evening presentation the winner and runners-up are announced. This year there are 2 categories in the VISIONARY AWARDS: Commercial Cut & Colour and Avante-Garde. Don't miss out, the deadline for 2014 Visionary Awards submissions is August 31, 2014.
