L’Oréal Professionnel Paris Announces NEW ID Artist Team Members

April 06, 2023

After another year of talented individuals showcasing their work, the 14 new ID Artist team members have been announced.

The ID Artist programme is a sought-after development programme that aims to find talented individuals and help them reach their full potential. With an exceptional list of alumni, being successful in gaining a spot on this programme can be career changing. With over 100 applicants, the entrant level was extremely high and the competition was fierce.

Over a two-year period, the ID Artist team get unique opportunities, training and skill development. Members train with top industry names, upskill in presenting, network widely within the industry and gain friendships from like-minded members.

Individuals who auditioned had to showcase skill across their personalised categories of colour, cutting or styling. Then they had a virtual interview with a panel of industry experts. The successful entrants each delivered a show-stopping model result and demonstrated their presentation skills to the judges.  

“It was a great honour to be involved in the judging of the ID Artist programme. It is always an inspiration to see our young rising icons within the industry share their passion, creativity and performance. Congratulations to the 14 successful and good luck for the future, I am super excited to see you grow.” – Darren Ambrose, D&J Ambrose
