The number of entrants participating in this year's  International Visionary Award was the highest on record, with entries arriving from over 50 countries.

Judging the entries in the 3 categories - Cut & Colour, AvanteGarde & Mens - last week, Alternative Hair President, Anthony Mascolo, who launched the concept of the International Visionary Awards as a way to give opportunity to unknown talent, said: “This competition becomes more exciting every year and the presentation of the finalists, within the Alternative Hair Show has become one of the highlights of the evening. I am inspired to see the work that is sent in.  Entries have come from an unbelievable number of countries including most of Europe and Scandinavia, but also from Canada, Australia, Japan, the USA, Taiwan and Bermuda.”

The names of the finalists appearing in each category will be launched on Alternative Hair’s digital platforms within the next 10 days, with  the finalists apprearing live on-stage at the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday on October 16th 2017. 

Now in its 35th year, the Alternative Hair Show has been staged at the Royal Albert Hall in London for many years. This truly unique charity event presented by hairdressers, for hairdressers, and dedicated to Fighting Leukaemia is a platform for the world’s leading artists and new talent, highlighting their creative collections and spectacular hair creations. Working in tandem with the AHS, the Alternative Hair Charity Foundation raises funds to support blood cancer charities and to date has raised in excess of £12 Million towards successful research into childhood Leukaemia.
