Roll up, roll up… to London with L’Oréal Professionnel Paris and 250 attendees – from across the UK&I gathered to celebrate those who achieved Colour Specialist status during 2023. It was a night of reconnecting with classmates whilst feeling proud of their achievements. 

In 2023 the Colour Specialist course received a brand-new look and feel. From an enriched syllabus, and extensive practical sessions to a new online footprint and enhanced learner resources.

What is a Colour Specialist? 

The L’Oréal Professionnel Paris Colour Specialist course has been around for 27 years and is known to be intense and challenging. Over 15 days you will cover the science of the hair, natural colour pigmentation, consultation, services for white hair, colour corrections, scalp bleaching, balayage and much more! Becoming a colour specialist is not for the faint-hearted and shows you’re a total pro when it comes to technical skills.   

Hear from Amy Woolner, Head of Education, L’Oréal Professionnel Paris: 

L’Oréal Professionnel Paris is a pioneer in educating advanced colouring skill sets. Supporting Colour Specialists reach exceptional standards is a privilege and contributes to uplifting the industry. Each graduate has diligently worked to meet these elevated standards, and they should take pride in their achievement.”

The top takeaway for graduates is often centred around the considerable boost in their confidence levels. Equipped with a comprehensive skill set, the right tools for effective consultations with clients and a deep understanding of hair colouring techniques. With all this knowledge we’re confident they can conquer any colour challenge that walks through the door. 




Senior colourists and salon owners also echo the impact that a Colour Specialist can have when they bring their knowledge back into the workspace and create a culture of excellence. It’s a win-win all round.
