It is only 3 months to the annual Alternative Hair Show.
Each year the show becomes bigger and better and the 2008 show is no exception.
The 2008 Alternative Hair Show
will be, as ever, an emotional affair against Leukaemia. So its theme for 2008: “Emotions” perhaps says it all. The Show once again takes place at the magnificent Royal Albert Hall in Central London, and will be held on Sunday 19th October. This year’s show is especially poignant as it gives Alternative Hair an opportunity to celebrate the 80th birthday of its International Patron, Vidal Sassoon.
Also on the programme this year is the re-instated Visionary Award. This popular section of the show gives 10 British hairdressers, (who have never participated in the Alternative Hair Show) the opportunity to present one model, this year inspired by the work of Vidal Sassoon. Entry commences by sending in one photographic image. A selection process will then elect 10 hairdressers to recreate their contemporary vision of Vidal Sassoon on the evening of the show. From these 10 finalists, one will be selected to appear at the Alternative Hair Show in 2009, either in the UK or abroad.
The Alternative Hair Show
is always a visually exciting evening and “Emotions” promises to be both entertaining and a celebration of the creativity that arises from within this exciting global profession. As in previous years, the show includes hairdressing teams from Europe, the USA and Japan, as well as from the UK.
