They have conducted more than 4,000 in-salon training events a remarkable 14,774 professional hairdressers received training last year, and further growth of educational seminars in 2017-2018 is planned. “These numbers demonstrate the substantial demand for beauty training in New Zealand, something which is to receive a major boost through the establishment of the new L’Oréal Academy. We are immensely proud to be supporting the career development of so many in the hairdressing industry through our recognised specialist training programmes and seminars," says Mike Bruce, manager of the Professional Products division. The Academy is expected to attract a 22 percent increase in students over 2017-2018, with growth reflected in the number of courses this year.
