A Sligo based hairdresser will be attending this year’s prestigious Alternative Hair Show in the Royal Albert Hall in London where he won a top award last year.
Rossa Danagher, proprietor of Rossano’s Hair Design and Beauty Salon on Wine Street, was the winner of the Visionary Cut and Colour award at last year’s show.
The Ballyshannon native returns for this year’s event as a guest, where he has also taken on the new challenge of putting a show together.
“I suppose there is a bit more pressure this year because I am being asked to perform at a different level again and to push the boundaries a bit more. It was a challenge I wanted to do and to be asked back is huge because you don’t often get that opportunity,” Rossa said.
“I am back as a guest artist this year. I have been working on this for eight months. This year’s theme is ‘Aurora’, so I had to put an original script, clothes and music together. It is like a theatrical show really, you are telling a story through hair and movement basically,” he explained.
