In 2012, Krankl landed the image campaign for the global presentation of the Alternative Hair Show’s 30th anniversary event entitled, “Legends of Alternative Hair.” In October of that year, he got to present his interpretation of that theme—which the London Evening Standard described as “ingenious”—as one of the world’s best stylists, at the Royal Albert Hall, before an audience of 5000 guests.
