        alternative hair show 2017
        15 October 2017 Royal Albert Hall – London (UK)

        Let’s celebrate the 35th anniversary of
        UTOPIA: the global hair event of the year

        This year the ALTERNATIVE HAIR SHOW celebrates its 35th anniversary with a Gala Show that promises another outstanding celebration of the art and craft of global hairdressing linked inexorably with the generosity of the profession and the many professional product companies who have backed it over the ensuing years.

        The background is a simple story of love, determination and commitment to fight leukaemia, a cancer of the blood notorious for the way it affects children and their families.

        It was in 1983 that Tony and Maggie Rizzo were devastated by the loss of their first-born child, Valentino, to the ravages of leukaemia.
        They responded to this tragedy by seeking out some of the world’s foremost hairdressers to help create a unique charity fundraising event at London’s Camden Palace.

        From this event the Alternative Hair Show was born.

        It has gone on to raise millions for the leukaemia cause and at the same time has become an enduring headline event in the international diary of hairdressing.
        Such was the success of that first show that sell-out events have followed in London every year and sister-shows have taken place across the world – Austria, Italy, USA, Japan, Korea, Russia and USA.

        These Shows have all been dedicated to raising vital cash to fund life-saving research in the UK and in the countries where the shows were staged.
        This year’s show, ambitiously entitled UTOPIA, will take place at the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday 15th October, and will be a special anniversary and celebration of 35 years of Alternative Hair.

        The evening promises to be both poignant and, as ever, filled with creativity, imagination, excitement and entertainment, inspired by today’s leading stars from the world of hairdressing.

          Celebrating another phenomenal year, with the opening of 11 new salons, including the most northern RUSH SALON in Manchester and the continual growth of the company both on a business level and creatively, the Rush Oscars once again provided the perfect way to get 2017 off to a flying start.

          Held at the beautiful art deco Savoy Theatre and hosted by International Creative Director, Andy Heasman and International Colour Director, Chris Williams, who immediately introduced Co-Founder and CEO, Andy Phouli onto stage, who welcomed 2017 as a ‘new year, new direction and new venture.’ Andy went on to share Rush’s plans for building and developing the brand and how proud the Rush family is of the entire team.

          LDC, part of Lloyds Banking Group, has come on board to help grow Rush into a major national brand.
          The investment will help to accelerate Rush’s national expansion of the brand as the company plans to fast-track the roll out and almost double its salon count over the next four years.

          Co-founder and CEO, Stell Andrew took to the stage to give a compassionate speech, calling 2016 the best year Rush have ever had and that for 2017, the team will step up to the challenge.
          Rush hairdressers are full of passion and creativity, with one goal and one commitment.

          Each year RUSH raise valuable funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital with their show, Rush Live. This year was no exception. Rush’s Tina Farey and Paola Pinto took to the stage to speak about how much Rush’s long-standing relationship with GOSH means to the company and presented GOSH with a cheque for £14,800 which was raised at Rush Live taking the total raised over seven years to £120,000.

          Co-Founder Andy and CEO drew the evening to a close bringing on daughters Sophia and Georgia to present the final award for London Salon of the Year to Baker Street.

                FELICITAS ORDÁS acaba de ser nombrada nueva presidenta de CLUB FIGARO, tomando el relevo de Mikel Luzea, que ha presidido la entidad desde sus comienzos.

                Tal como marcan los estatutos de Club Fígaro, este año terminaba el período de vigencia de la junta directiva actual y debían convocarse nuevas elecciones. El pasado 15 de noviembre se comunicó a los socios la apertura del plazo para presentación de candidaturas, que se cerró el 30 de noviembre sin haber registrado ninguna candidatura aparte de la encabezada por Felicitas Ordás, por lo que no se llegó a proceder a votaciones.

                Felicitas Ordás, que hasta el momento era vicepresidenta de Club Fígaro, se mostró muy ilusionada con este nuevo cargo: “Es un honor y una responsabilidad representar a Club Fígaro como presidenta. En estos ocho años se ha hecho un gran trabajo por la peluquería española y espero poderlo continuar con el apoyo de todos los socios del club y los compañeros de la junta directiva”.

                Por su parte, Mikel Luzea, presidente saliente y que a partir de ahora ostentará el cargo de Director General de los Premios Fígaro, ha afirmado: “Estoy seguro de que esta nueva etapa que se abre va a traer muchos otros éxitos a Club Fígaro para seguir creciendo y dando difusión a nuestra peluquería creativa en todo el mundo. Le paso el testigo a Felicitas, compañera y amiga, y no dudo que va a poner todo de su parte para enriquecer este proyecto”.

                Felicitas Ordás estaba acompañada en su candidatura por Jorge Cáncer, Alfonso Martínez, Víctor Alonso y Mikel Luzea, todos ellos miembros de la junta anterior y que seguirán en esta nueva etapa, con diferentes responsabilidades.

                  Global hairdressing icons once again gathered in Sydney at the Seymour Centre, before an audience of over 800 hairdressers over an epic THREE days of pure education and creativity, to bring to life the third installment of Ssh! Australia.

                  emiliano-richard-kavanagh emiliano-vitale-peter-gray-benni-tognini emiliano-vitale-pierre-saint-sever-richard-ashforth-and-benni-tognini

                  An awe-inspiring THREE days comprising the Ssh! show, Masterclass and bespoke Workshops with SACO & Mazella&Palmer, Ssh has truly become a world-class event; remaining true to its values and pushing boundaries unlike anything that has ever existed in Australia, and revered around the world as a truly unique experimental event, pioneering creative exploration.

                  Led by Australian Hairdresser of the Year Alumni and legends of the global industry, Emiliano Vitale and Benni Tognini, the impressive line up of talent for 2016 comprised:

                  • Dove Palmer & Jean-Baptiste Mazella – Mazella&Palmer (UK)
                  • Richard Ashforth & Pierre Saint Sever – SACO (UK)
                  • Andy Wong and Nick Chung – EROS (Taiwan)
                  • Richard Kavanagh (Australia)
                  • Robert Lobetta (USA) and Team Lobetta (Kobi Bokshish, Alexandra Newman and Jamie Furlan – Australia)
                  • Peter Gray (USA)

                  As the audience settled in to embrace the poetic universe of contemporary hair culture, Jules Tognini introduced each guest artist to the stage.


                  Popular duo, Mazella&Palmer, where first up, preceded by a dreamscape of haunting melodies and shadow figures which evolved into their presentation of Demeure; a collection inspired by English fashion photographer Tim Walker and his dreamy, nostalgic pictures. Demeure enveloped the audience in a daydream and fantasy, telling stories conjured directly from the imagination that most of us left behind in childhood, all whilst staying true to the duo’s philosophy of not just how to cut hair, but why.

                  “This event, and the education it imparts, is one of the best in the world. For us, it’s Number One in the sense of keeping it pure,” says Dove Palmer.

                  Richard Kavanagh

                  Mercurial and magical, Australia’s Richard Kavanagh embraced the ethos that is Ssh! challenging mindsets with an abstract narrative on the lack of connection we have in the modern era, and how important the human aspect of the craft of hairdressing is and our need to honour that. Richard paid homage to how important the craft of hairdressing is – it being one of the true crafts that cannot be mechanized or digitized.

                  Nick Chung and Andy Wong- EROS

                  The powerhouse duo of Nick Chung and Andy Wong, and their entourage that comprise Taiwan’s EROS catapulted the audience into a new world of HUVATAR (human+avatar), where rapid technological developments have caused a change in the world, and influenced the human body. EROS challenged the audience to see body shape in different forms, coupled with new innovations in hair and architecture.

                  Robert Lobetta


                  Robert Lobetta mentored and led a trio of Australian young guns – Alexandra Newman, Jamie Furlan and Kobi Bokshish – along with the audience into the world of ‘Asylum’. A safe place for the experimentation of your most wildest ideas, where there’s fluidity of pieces, aggression in beauty and the opportunity to be brilliant by risking and trying something different.


                  Striking colours and contemporary takes on classic shapes and textures encapsulated SACO’s presentation of their I.D. Collection. Taking influence from performance artist and designer, Leigh Bowery, Richard & Pierre, demonstrated that words were not necessary; it was sheer creativity and technique that piqued and held the crowd’s attention.

                  Peter Gray

                  The final presentation of the evening to imbue the audience with a definitive shot of creativity and a social conscience message was America’s Peter Gray. A man who needs a reason or cause to present, and to raise awareness, Peter’s strikingly powerful show shone the spotlight on human trafficking; with the finale showcasing a model encased in a ‘web’ of twine/cotton; a direct reference to the underworld web that is the human trafficking trade.

                  Says Peter, “This event, Ssh! Australia, is truly what is an incredible global event. Creativity with a purpose is what I aspire to! Inspiring causes motivate me to push the boundaries. Ssh was an amazing opportunity to work with an amazing team using the medium of hair to convey the harsh reality of a web of people involved in human trafficking worldwide!”

                  Ssh! once again delivered an experiential educational experience for professionals in the hair, makeup, fashion and design arenas at the Seymour Center and around the globe via live streaming through liveED; a concept daring in it’s approach and delivery.


                  What’s next for Ssh! Australia 2017?
                  We’re keeping that a secret for now!
