Artistry Ahead: Alternative Hair Show 2015 in London

The finale at The Alternative Hair Show 2014 in London.

The Alternative Hair Show 2015 takes place on  October 11 at 8pm at The Royal Albert Hall, London, celebrating the artistry and pure creativity of hairdressing teams from across the globe, while raising  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.

Also continuing this year is the AIPP 2015/16 Awards winners’ presentation, recognizing image creation in print and digital media.
