The invention of a synthetic hair dye more than 100 years ago gave life to the beauty company now known as L’Oréal. The firm’s professional division, which today is home to thousands of color and hair care formulas, carries this birth legacy with the deepest sense of pride.
“We were born with hairdressing. The products that were created in 1907 were carried around in a suitcase for stylists. This is a distribution channel and a category to which we are extremely committed historically and emotionally. It is in our DNA,” says Nicolas Hieronimus, president of L’Oréal’s global professional division, which generates more than $3 billion in sales annually.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
