Open to all salons and hairdressers Access is home to a community of over 30,000 UK and Irish hairdressers with over 2,500 pieces of education content across artistry, business and social media.

With salons preparing to welcome back clients, L’Oréal Professional Products Division, including L’Oréal Professionnel, Redken, Matrix, Kérastase and Pulp Riot, has created a new, 30 minute, interactive e-learning module to help salons feel confident to reopen safely.
