How to Audition

Auditions are by digital entry only and include two formal audition steps:

Step 1: Submit an audition video showcasing a model

  • Prepare a complete total look featuring a model based on something that inspires you
  • Present this look and explain how you achieved the look, including the techniques and products used
  • You will be asked to indicate your chosen area of skill and focus between cutting, styling and colouring. You can select just one or all three; during the audition you need to explain and showcase your chosen skill area(s). This should be achieved using only L’Oréal Professionnel Paris styling and/or colouring products
  • The video must be landscape and a minimum of 90 seconds in length, but a maximum of five minutes
  • You do not need to include footage of the process and the video does not need to be a professional level

If you have any technical issues with your submission, please email [email protected]

Step 2: A virtual interview with a panel of experts

After you submit your audition, you will be asked to book a time slot for a 10-minute interview with the panel of judges. The judges will ask a series of questions regarding the technical and thought process behind the look presented in the audition.

The interviews will take place on the 24 and 25 January 2022. On the day you will be emailed a link to join this virtual interview. Entrants must have internet access, and access to a laptop/desktop/smartphone with a video for this interview. If you do not receive the link on the day, please email [email protected]

Successful ID Artists will be notified by phone and/or email on the 26 January 2022.  See terms and conditions for the competition here and good luck!
