Dates announced for 2014 Alternative Hair Show

The Alternative Hair Show has established itself as an enduring charity event, much loved by the 5,000 audience who annually attend the show during the weekend of Salon International. Importantly the Show is supported by the wonderful hair teams that each year fund their own presentations to appear in the show, without whom the evening could not take place.

The Alternative Hair Show 2014 takes place on Sunday 12th October, at 8pm at The Royal Albert Hall, London celebrating the artistry and pure creativity of hairdressing teams from across the globe, whilst raising much-needed funding for “Fighting Leukaemia”; a charity set up by Tony and Maggie Rizzo to support Leukaemia sufferers, primarily children and their families.
