This year Alternative Hair’s founders Tony and Maggie Rizzo celebrate 40 years of the esteemed show at the Troxy theatre in East London. Since its inception in 1983, AHS has served the international community of hairdressers by highlighting and honouring creativity and technical skill with the aim to raise money and channel all proceeds into fighting leukaemia in children. Since Anthony Mascolo was appointed president and with Pat Mascolo as trustee, the charity event has hosted the International Visionary Awards for the past 19 years and continues to see talent flourish with more entries this year than ever before. Four decades of unyielding passion for hair and philanthropy later, the annual Salon International 2022 weekend comes to a close with this year’s LEGENDS themed Alternative Hair event.
