37 years of amazing hairdressing shows and over £12.5 Million raised for the charitable foundation “Fighting Leukaemia” – that is what Alternative Hair is about.
When Tony and Maggie Rizzo’s young son Valentino passed away after suffering Leukaemia, Tony decided to put on a charity hair show during the weekend of Salon International. It was to be a one-off event, showing short artistic presentations. The evening was such a success, people demanded he repeat the show the next year and the enduring Alternative Hair Show was born. Over the years the Alternative Hair Show has not only taken place in London but also in across the globe.
This year’s fantastic show was held at the ICC, Excel, London in front of an audience of 3,200, raising £163, 650.
The participating artistic teams were:
Raffel Pages Spain
Anne Veck UK
Dmitry Vinokurov Russia
Klaus Peter Ochs Gemany
Ken Zhou China
Mikel Luzea Spain
Rudy Mostarda Italy
Marc Antoni UK
Laszlo Hajas Hungary
Carlo Bay Italy
TIGI Creative Team UK
The energetic and highly creative shows provided an explosion of colour and artistry with each team showing their own interpretation of the theme PARODY.
It was an incredible evening with many “regulars’ in the audience claiming it was the best Alternative Show ever!
