UTOPIA: The Alternative Hair Show 2017

Wednesday, 15 February 2017 11:27

UTOPIA is is the theme of this year's Alternative Hair Show, celebrating its 35th anniversary with a gala that promises once more to showcase the very best of global hairdressing talent land the generosity of its supporters.

The background is a simple story of love, determination and commitment to fight Leukaemia, a cancer of the blood notorious for the way it affects children and their families. It was in 1983 that Tony and Maggie Rizzo were devastated by the loss of their first-born child, Valentino, to the ravages of leukaemia. They responded to this tragedy by seeking out some of the world’s foremost hairdressers to help create a unique charity fundraising event at London’s Camden Palace. From this event the Alternative Hair Show was born. It has gone on to raise millions for the leukaemia cause and at the same time has become an enduring headline event in the international diary of hairdressing.

This year’s show, ambitiously entitled UTOPIA, will take place at the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday 15th October, and will be a special anniversary and celebration of 35 years of Alternative Hair. The evening promises to be both poignant and, as ever, filled with creativity, imagination, excitement and entertainment, inspired by today’s leading stars from the world of hairdressing.
