Alternative Hair Show in Russia

On 28 September 2011, the State Kremlin Palace Hall hosted the show of the world’s top stylists, Alternative Hair Show 2011.

The show is an ongoing project started by Toni Rizzo, a famous hair stylist, 29 years ago inLondon. From the very beginning, the project was a charity initiative, with all proceeds from ticket sales being donated every year to various charity funds helping children suffering from leukaemia. Over the 29 years, sick children received over £8,000,000 of donations from the show organisers!

This year, the event took place inRussiafor the first time, thanks to efforts of Mr. Dmitry Vinokurov, one of the top Russian hair stylists. “The aim of AHS inRussiais to draw public attention to children’s oncological haematological diseases. I am very glad that our global initiative is supported inRussiaby such great people as top hair stylist Dmitry Vinokurov and the Podari Zhizn foundation. I hope that together we will be able to help Russian children suffering from this formidable disease!” says Toni Rizzo.

3,000,000 roubles, received from the ticket sales for this event, were donated to the Podari Zhizn foundation.
