L’Oréal Professional Products Division is rolling out a programme to support the modernisation of hairdressing salons in Europe.

The Salon Emotion programme will provide eligible stylists with support to improve their clients’ overall experience, modernise their salons with complete and personalised guidance, and facilitate their access to financing. By the end of 2018, “Salon Emotion” aims at transforming 6,000 salons.
