2015 Alternative Hair Show

Home > Press Box > 2015 Alternative Hair Show

The Alternative Hair Show 2015 takes place on Sunday 11th October, at 8pm at The Royal Albert Hall, London, celebrating the artistry and pure creativity of hairdressing teams from across the globe, whilst raising much-needed funding for “Fighting Leukaemia”; a charity set up by Tony and Maggie Rizzo to support Leukaemia sufferers, primarily children and their families.

This is the 33rd London Alternative Hair Show and marks an exciting 12 months during which Alternative Hair has welcomed LEGENDS Award recipient, Annie Humphreys, as a Patron as well as partnering with Hair Raising for a 2nd year, to organize Race For The Kids, a charity fun-run, on the 7th June 2015, in Battersea Park, Central London. (There’s still time to join the race!)

The Alternative Hair Show is an enduring charity event with incredible support, from the wonderful hair teams self-funding their shows each year, to the charity sponsors providing much needed funding, international trade media giving coverage before and after the event and of course the 5000 audience who attend the evening.

An intrinsic part of the evening is the Visionary Award, inspired by Anthony Mascolo’s desire to seek out and recognize new talent. In the last few years the original concept has grown into an international photographic competition with 2 categories: Commercial cut & colour and Avant-Garde. The finalists are each invited to present a model during a separate part of the show. Judged by top hairdressers and journalists from across the globe, the winner of each category is announced during the evening.

Alternative Hair is so much more than a charity event, so much more than a hair show. It is about an event close to the heart of many people within the hairdressing profession: inspiring, enthralling and entertaining; definitely a ‘not to be missed event’ on the hairdressing calendar.
