When Tony and Maggie Rizzo’s young son Valentino passed away after suffering from 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 across the globe.
This year’s show was held at the ICC, Excel, London in front of an audience of 3,200, and raised an impressive £163, 650.
Hairdressers from across the world came together to share their creativity and inspiration, under the theme of ‘Parody’.
