Life Ball

Today I shall tell you a short story of the Life Ball.

It is THE biggest charity event in Europe founded in 1992 by two amazing visionaries; Mr Gery Keszler and Mr Torgom Petrosian. They had a very specific goal: To raise public awareness.

They wanted to create a happening that was going to show the support toward people with HIV or AIDS. Life Ball is organised by the nonprofit organisation AIDS LIFE and I am one very fortunate hair artist as this was my 9th year of being invited to join international hair artist team headed by Danilo Dixon.

Since 2006, the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR), which was founded by Elizabeth Taylor has been a cooperation partner of the Life Ball. The main focus in 2006 was on the fight of HIV and AIDS in babies and toddlers. Current president of amfAR is Sharon Stone. 

As a part of Danilo’s team I have had the incredible opportunity to help create some of the most unique hairstyles for the likes of Pamela Anderson , Ute Lemper and fashion giants such as Calvin Klein, Kenneth Cole, Diane von Fürstenberg and DSquared².

Being able to take part in such an incredible event and for the great cause is one of the biggest achievements of my career.

Thank you Danilo, team and thank you Life Ball.

See you again next year!
