L’Oréal and Central St Martin’s College celebrate young talent

L'Oreal Professionnel at CSM Graduate show 2018There’s always been a strong link between hairdressing and fashion, and L’Oréal Professionnel has been a pioneering force in forging this relationship. Importantly, for this brand, it’s not just about supporting the successful designers already wowing the world catwalks. It’s also about helping the next generation of fashion icons shine.

Celebrate young talent

Since 2001 L’Oréal Professionnel has worked in partnership with Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. Helping to recognise and promote the bond between hair and fashion, while celebrating up-and-coming talent from both worlds. The results have been stunning and enduring. The reputation of the graduate fashion week is just one example of how the fashion world now takes great notice of the support and input of hairdressers.

For Summer 2018, a team of gifted young hairdressers once again styled hair for the college’s BA show, presenting a catwalk extravaganza of hair looks to complement the students’ incredible work. Browse our choice of the strong looks we liked best:

This ongoing partnership merges the very latest in fashion talent with the creativity of young hairdressers – a unique and inspired collaboration”.
