French Fashion Meets Indian Innovation
Caroline Lannuzel, Artistic Consultant at L’Oréal Professionnel India, is excited to be a part of the big evolution of Indian Hairdressing. Speaking to Isha Gakhar, the French artist who has made India her home, tells Beauty Launchpad all about her creative endeavours and more.

How has been your artistic journey with L’Oréal Professionnel?

My journey with L’Oréal Professionnel began at their hair academy. As an artist, it is my dream team. Time simply flies and I have done a lot with L’Oréal. Now, I can’t wait for what’s next.

What do you think of the evolution of hairdressing as a profession in India?

It has been great. Earlier, it was complicated as we hardly had any face in the country. But now, because of L’Oréal, hairdressing has opened up with more and more people keen to take it up as a profession. With new academies being opened, there are more training opportunities available in the country. But I still feel that we can push it a little further because I do come across young people who are still struggling to become a hairdresser as their families aren’t completely supportive.

You have been a great support at the L’Oréal Colour Trophy as well as the academy, and in helping salons create their collections. What is your inspiration behind it?

I love to help hairdressers dream. It is essential to push them to try something different and not just the kind of work we do in the salons for clients.

There is a lot of scope for experimentation in hairdressing and you can do as much as your passion for this art.

Styling is my thing, but then I want to push myself to do more. I really want to create more collections for salons; very few do it. We should encourage and support more salons to create their own collections as it gives clarity on their identity and image. It also helps clients choose the right salon for themselves.

Any tips to salons on why it is important to have their own collection?
