After several enquiries from abroad, and in the true international spirit of the event, ANTHONY MASCOLO, has decided to allow international hairdressers to enter the Alternative Hair Visionary Award. For this reason, the deadline has been extended until, September 5th.
The VISIONARY AWARD is a great opportunity for salons to become involved with the charity and especially to have the opportunity of appearing with their model on stage at the magnificent Royal Albert Hall. This year’s show is particularly exciting as it celebrates the 80th birthday of Alternative Hair Patron, Vidal Sassoon. Entrants are asked to submit one 10″ x 12″ image that has been inspired by the work of Vidal Sassoon. From the entries received, 12 hairdressers will be invited to recreate their idea and to appear on stage at the Alternative Hair Show on Sunday October, 19th, 2008. (NB: The photograph does not need to be exclusive to the Visionary Award.) The winner of the Visionary Award Competition 2008 will be announced at the Show on October 19th, and will also be invited to take part in the following year’s Alternative Hair Show.
