This year marks the 34th anniversary of the Alternative Hair Show.

Established by hairdresser Tony Rizzo, founder of Sanrizz, the show is hosted at London’s Royal Albert Hall every October to raise money for Leukaemia research. In addition to the charitable drive behind the show it is also considered an important display of the wide range of creativity within the world of hairdressing. This year twenty international hairdressing teams developed concepts linking to the theme of ‘Odyssey’. In addition to the established teams that take part, the International Visionary Awards, which starts off the show, is a global competition dedicated to showcasing new talent in the world of hair.

INFRINGE were backstage before the show, documenting the creative processes that went into each look.
