On Sunday 29th October, Pro Hair celebrated 20 years of the iconic ID ARTIST Programme with L’Oréal Professionnel Paris. Held at the new L’Oréal Gateway Academy in London, guests included industry icons, former ID ARTISTS and friends who gathered together from all over the UK and Ireland to celebrate this significant milestone.
The pinnacle of the evening was a spectacular stage presentation, co-created by four previous ID Icons and the current 2023/24 ID ARTISTS to showcase the highest level of hair artistry and team collaboration. Guests were taken on a discovery journey throughout the years to Reflect, Reimagine, Reinspire and Reignite the evolution of hairdressing as well as the legacy of the ID ARTIST programme – all with the L’Oréal Professionnel Paris brand heritage and DNA at its heart.
