Alternative Hair Charitable Foundation
The Shows have grown into one of the most exciting and sought after events in the international hairdressing calendar. The flagship London Show, now in its 30th year, is staged at the Royal Albert Hall. There have been Shows in Chicago USA, Bologna Italy, Vienna Austria, Moscow Russia, Seoul South Korea and Tokyo Japan. Proceeds of the Shows, now in excess of £8.5 million, have been donated to Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research in the UK and to leukaemia charities in the host country.
In January 2012, to mark the 30th Anniversary of this unique fundraising initiative, it was decided to set up The Alternative Hair Charitable Foundation. The Foundation is a grant making trust committed to funding charities with established experience and expertise in the advancement of research into and the treatment and welfare of people suffering leukaemia and related cancers of the blood.
The Foundation wants to build upon the success the Alternative Hair Shows have achieved over the last 30 years by establishing a focal point for hairdressing, a profession renowned for its qualities of caring and generosity, to achieve yet more in fighting leukaemia.
