A hair-show with an important message, in 1983 hairdresser Tony Rizzo and his wife Maggie lost their first-born child to Leukaemia. To fight back against this life-threatening disease, they founded the Alternative Hair Show as a charity fundraising event for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.
From humble beginnings in London’s Camden Theatre, to a global following with an excess of £12.5 million, the Alternative Hair show has been hosted in Chicago, Bologna, Vienna, Moscow, Seoul, Italy and Tokyo. This year’s event will be virtual.
Expect to see the biggest and best names in hairstyling alongside features for new, young, and unknown, hairdressers. Want inspiration?

“This is the right time to take The International Visionary Award to the next level and add another aspect to the Alternative Hair Show so we are truly excited to now encompass The New Visionaries.” Tony Rizzo, Founder of Alternative Hair.
