Science of Texture

In Uncategorized by Nicky

L’Oreal Professionnel is proud to collaborate with industry leader, Charlotte Mensah along with other renowned hair experts to create the brands’ newest educational course: Total Texture. We’re talking constantly now about the need to upskill and become more confident in working with all types of hair texture. Often the most curly, coily hair gets least attention, but now longer. Jump onto a FREE 45-minute course on the L’Oréal Access platform, which allows you, the hair professional, to revise your knowledge on texture theory. 

Total Texture

So now you’re intrigued, there’s more! The entire Total Texture course is made up of 13 videos; forming a series of knowledge-enriching theory tutorials from a range of leading hair pros. Each is about helping to equip and refresh you, the hair professional, on the foundation knowledge required to welcome every client and care for every hair texture. It’s also a great starting point for industry newcomers too. It’s a no-brainer!

Charlotte Mensah says,“If you want to be a great hairdresser it is so important to know how to work with every hair type so that anyone who walks through your door can be welcomed. Understanding the fundamentals of what, why and how texture influences hairdressing techniques is essential.”

Who is Total Texture for?

All hair professionals will benefit from the Total Texture, whether you’re looking to expand your skillset, refresh your memory, or get ahead of the programme before some hands on L’Oréal training. Importantly, the training is interactive and engaging. You can expect to see models from across the curly/coily spectrum, as the team reinforce the importance of texture knowledge in your everyday craft. It’s super-empowering.
