L’Oréal Paris has just launched a mobile app called My L’Oréal Colorist, designed to provide consumers with a simulated professional hair-color consultation. It is available through iTunes. After the free download, users can either scan the barcode of a L’Oréal hair-color product or answer several questions to receive a shade recommendation. Customers can also specify their desired permanence, tone and form (cream, gel or foam). The app is compatible with five of L’Oréal’s 17 hair-color brands: Superior Preference, Excellence Crème, Féria, Healthy Look Crème Gloss Color and Sublime Mousse by Healthy Look (each product retails for less than $10). The brand is further personalizing the process of choosing shades by allowing participants to share the colors they are considering on Facebook.
