Odyssey – The 2016 Alternative Hair Show celebrates a Long and Epic Journey!

Very aptly named “Odyssey,” the 34th Alternative Hair Show, is a time to remember the voyage Tony Rizzo and the many supportive international hair teams have taken since the very first Show at Camden Palace in October 1982.

Hairstyles have changed, fashion has taken its own spectacular journey and audiences have grown, but the enduring support from the professional world of hairdressing, the global trade media and the charity sponsors, remains constant. We must remember, Alternative Hair exists to support funding and research for Leukaemia and many other blood cancers. Every show is held in memory of Valentino Rizzo, Tony and Maggie Rizzo’s first-born son, who sadly died of Leukaemia at the age of 2 years.

Since Tony began his relentless fight to raise funds to support the search for a cure for Leukaemia, as well as supporting families going through the traumatic experience of watching a child suffer, there have been vast changes in the treatment, care and survival rates. Whilst results in the UK are now positive; in many parts of the world, children still have to suffer undignified and lonely treatment and the outcome is less optimistic. Whilst Tony sees opportunity and need to carry on fund-raising, Alternative Hair will continue its creative expedition.
