Alternative Hair and Fighting Leukaemia are pleased to announce details of this year’s ALTERNATIVE HAIR SHOW.
Now in its 36th year, the ALTERNATIVE HAIR SHOW is recognised as the world’s most prestigious annual hairdressing event, hosting leading inspirational hairdressers and leading artistic teams from across the globe. Importantly, the participants come together to help raise vital funding for Fighting Leukaemia, supporting doctors, research scientists and children and families suffering from blood cancers. This year’s show brings a dazzling showcase of mystery and inspiration as the legendary artistic show teams translate the theme: Mystique.
In 2018, the Alternative Hair Show moves to the beautiful and mysterious Masonic Temple in the Freemasons’ Hall in London’s Covent Garden. The venue is the perfect façade for Mystique and is guaranteed to create an exciting, intimate atmosphere, allowing the audience to see every detail of the hair, make up and costumes whilst enjoying the performance.

Also on display will be the finalists’ collections for HJ’s 2018 British Hairdressing Awards sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional. Displayed in the Gallery, the images from the 90 finalists and British Hairdresser of the Year nominees will be available for visitors to view, before the winner is announced on the 26th November at a star-studded awards ceremony in London.
Salon International is the premier event in the hairdressing calendar for those working within the profession and it is here that the hairdressing industry launches the latest products and equipment and platforms the trend collections for the coming season, while visitors come to look, listen, learn and buy.
The Global Rebellion collection is all about an unbounded, universal resistance to tradition and authority. It seeks to defy cultural stereotyping and even more deeply, to question the constructs of traditional hair styling in both shape and colour. The texture and movement within each of the images invites the viewer to experience the strength of the look while being made aware of the vulnerability that is inherent in non-conformity. The model may look ‘pretty in pink’ but the incongruence of the flat fringe and adjacent choppy, short pieces with the waves in the hair length give it an edge that reveals she may not be so pretty and helpless after all. And who says hair has to be short at the back or short at the front? Why not have both with choppy lengths in between in contrasting hues of blue? The softness and spring mixed with the complementary colours creates an allure greatly enhanced by her obvious individuality.

International Barber Convention è l’evento esclusivo della barberia, che ha fatto parlare tutte le testate giornalistiche, le migliori radio e canali TV, imponente tanto da dover raddoppiare gli spazi. Non si unisce ad altri eventi per far numero, vista l’immensità raggiunta nelle scorse edizioni. Dopo aver dimostrato nel 2016 e nel 2017 la sua forza, International Barber Convention torna nel 2018 il 30 Settembre ed il 1 Ottobre presso il Palacavicchi Eventi a Roma.
Le due giornate saranno caratterizzate da spettacoli, performance, seminari, workshop, show, dimostrazioni di tagli, servizi barba e hair tattoo. Le migliori aziende di settore saranno presenti con i loro stand ed alcuni dei nomi più noti del panorama internazionale sono pronti a mostrare la loro arte sul palco della manifestazione. In questi due giorni farà il suo esordio il Barber Talent: una vera e propria novità per il settore, i cui dettagli verranno svelati molto presto.
