Oh what a show!
Last week The Alternative Hair show was hosted at the Troxy Theatre in Limehouse, East London. The show is kindly dedicated to giving, sharing, inspiring and entertaining but most importantly, raising funding for a variety of Leukaemia and Blood Cancer charities; in memory of Valentino Rizzo, Tony and Maggie Rizzo’s young son, who had sadly lost his life to blood cancer.
On top of raising money the show tries to raise the status of hairdressers by finding and promoting new talent. After two years of online shows it was great to see the hairdressers live on stage in front of a crowd!
This year, entitled Legends, was made up of 14 teams that have supported Tony Rizzo over the years, once again showing the best of their best work. An addition to the show was The New Visionaries Show, a dedicated section encompassing the creative work of 18 hairdressers who had previously won the Alternative Hair Visionary Awards.
The final three places of the International Visionary Awards were announced during the show, with Tony Rizzo and Alternative Hair Worldwide President, Anthony Mascolo, announcing the winners:
Avantegarde: winner: Lorenzo Marchelle
Cut & Colour: winne: Laurentiu Bostan
Men’s: winner: Wei Wei Chuang
A huge congratulations to the winners and runners up, and everyone who helped to raise an incredible £104,000 for a variety of Leukemia and Blood Cancer charities. Bravo all!
