As if you needed another reason to attend Salon International this year, Alternative Hair has announced for the first time in its 37 year history, the Alternative Hair Show 2019 will take place at Salon International, ExCeL London this October.

Executive director of Hairdressers Journal and Salon International, Jayne Lewis-Orr says, “It is wonderful to be able to bring the Alternative Hair Show to Salon International. We are honoured to support Tony Rizzo and Fighting Leukaemia and acknowledge the wonderful work done, not just by the medical staff, but the many helpers and, of course, the hairdressing teams and industry sponsors that make this enduring event a success each year.

She continued, “Salon International is at the heart of hairdressing globally with the leading brands on the show floor and the best creative talents performing on the many stages. The Alternative Hair Show is the perfect addition to this inspirational event.”

Change is good and I think this will definitely be a good move

Since its inception, Alternative Hair has raised over £12 Million through Tony and Maggie’s charity: Fighting Leukaemia, which helps to support research projects and the scientists working to find a cure for blood cancers; the doctors and nurses treating patients in hospitals in the UK and abroad; and the provision of support programmes for families of children suffering from Leukaemia.

Alternative Hair founder, Tony Rizzo says, “I am thrilled we are bringing Alternative Hair to Salon International. Location wise this makes sense for a lot of the attendees who want to visit Salon International during the day and often stay in hotels in the area. We are also adding a global aspect to the weekend, with our international artistic teams and high number of international entries in the Visionary Award. A new venue is inspirational and exciting for us all.”

Alternative Hair Global President, Anthony Mascolo concluded, “This is a really great move! We’ll be at the centre of everything happening over the weekend, but will also add a new dimension to Salon International. Change is good and I think this will definitely be a good move.”
