Always a global industry highlight, the 33rd annual Alternative Hair Show will take place on Sunday the 11th of October 2015 at the iconic Royal Albert Hall, London. This year, titled Aurora, the show promises to be bigger and better than ever.

The Alternative Hair Show raises funds for Fighting Leukaemia, a charity set up by Tony and Maggie Rizzo to support Leukaemia sufferers, primarily children and their families. Each hair team self-funds their own show, whilst charity sponsors and the large numbers of guests, set at around 5000 each year, also donate considerably to the cause.

This year will see enthralling creative teams from around the world take to the stage, with Australia’s very own e SALON taking part. Brand sponsors include TIGI, Wella, Anthony and Pat Mascolo Foundation, Schwarzkopf Professional, Denman Brushes, Revlon Professional and Parlux.

Another event feature is the Visionary Award, which seeks out new talent from around the world. The competition has grown into an international photographic contest with two categories, Commercial Cut & Colour and Avant Garde. National finalists are invited to present a model during the show and are then judged by leading international journalists and hairdressers. The global winners are announced during the event.
