International Visionary Award 2016

VA - application form 3


An intrinsic part of the evening is the Visionary Award. Inspired by an idea of Anthony Mascolo’s the Award seeks and recognizes new talent. It has grown over the last few years into an international photographic competition. The finalists are each invited to present a model during a separate part of the show. Judged by top hairdressers and journalists from across the globe, 3 winners from each category are announced during the evening.
This year we will continue with the 3 categories: Avant-Garde, Cut & Colour & Mens.

“With the growing success of the Visionary Award, we felt that we needed to broaden the criteria to allow more hairdressers to showcase their work,” says Tony Rizzo, Alternative Hair Founder. There is so much exciting work being done today, I wanted to give hairdressers the opportunity to show their creative cuts and colours. I am sure this allow us to see some new talent from across the globe.”

Alternative Hair is so much more than a charity event, so much more than a hair show. It is about an event that is close to the heart of many people within the hairdressing profession, inspiring, enthralling and entertaining; a ‘not to be missed event’ on the hairdressing calendar.

An established leading company from Hong Kong that prides itself on breakthrough technology that shapes product standards for the hair industry around the world.

The 33rd Alternative Hair Show was held at the magnificent Royal Albert Hall in London on Sunday, October 11th. Every year, this colourful, passionate and emotional event continues to thrill, inspire and entertain the global audience, in an evening of spectacle and vision. This year’s show was fantastic on many levels. Colourful, creative and exciting, it kept the audience wanting more.

The passion of the participating teams and their loyalty to Alternative Hair, cannot be over-looked. Entirely financing their own shows, including travel and hotels, the deep support offered to Tony Rizzo and Alternative Hair is highly commendable. Many of the hairdressing teams participate each year, working tirelessly to create their 3-minute slot in the evening’s programme. The applause each team receives is totally justifiable for their creativity and their devotion.

“There are no words I can find to thank these wonderful hairdressers. Their support and generosity never fails to make me feel both eternally grateful and humble.” Tony Rizzo, Alternative Hair Founder.

Entitled “Aurora”, the Show’s descriptive, proved particularly inspirational to the hair teams showing their work. In many of the hair collections, fashion-led colours in every shade imaginable, from the palest pinks and yellows, through multiple tones of blue and green, to the richest blacks, perfectly linked to the literal meaning of “aurora”. The northern latitudes also proved inspirational with aspects of dawn and dusk, glacial ice patterns and frozen landscapes woven into the themes and styling.

Now a popular part of the evening, the Alternative Hair Visionary Award, sponsored by TIGI shows international emerging talent. The finalists of the 3 sections: Cut & Colour, Men’s and Avant-Garde, each show 1 model judged on the day by an esteemed panel of hairdressers and journalists. The spectacular effort and high-quality of the work made the judging extremely difficult. Anthony Mascolo, Alternative Hair President, who launched the Visionary Award said, “Every year the work gets better and better. The standard was phenomenal. Every single hairdresser not only showed beautiful hair, but the makeup, and styling created fantastic overall looks. I don’t know how we actually decided on winners!”

The winners of the 2015 Visionary Awards were:
Cut & Colour: Barry McDonagh – Ireland
Men’s: Walter Armanno – Italy
Avant-Garde: Emmanuel Esteban – UK

For the last few years Alternative Hair has linked with AIPP to present the winners of the AIPP International Awards. Part of this Award ceremony,

includes a presentation to the chosen Alternative Hair & AIPP Legend. This year the award went to Robert Lobetta, who received his award from his good friends Pat and Anthony Mascolo and Roberto Pissimiglia. Other winners were Philip Bell from Ishoka (UK), Angelo Seminara (UK), Marvin Lin of Flux Reel (Taiwan), Uros Mikic (Australia) and Carol Bruguera (Spain).

We must never forget that the Alternative Hair Show is about raising money to fund research and ultimately helping to find a cure for blood cancers, including Leukaemia. With all monies from the Alternative Hair Show going to ‘Fighting Leukaemia’, each year a film is played to show the audience the vital work the charity does and what it hopes to achieve in the future. On stage was 6 year old Blue Tobin a survivor of Leukaemia, but still fighting his own battle against ill-health. He encouraged the audience to put money into the collection boxes or to text donations. Who could resist! The evening raised a fantastic £201,000.

It’s still possible to give to Fighting Leukaemia on UK mobiles.
