Clichy, 13 June 2016 - L’Oréal is a partner of the Viva Technology Start Up Connect event, which will be held at the Porte de Versailles in Paris from 30 June to 2 July 2016.

This event, hosted by Les Echos Group and Publicis, will bring together technology transformation players from around the world: close to 5,000 start-ups, over a hundred major public and private companies, investors, and innovation partners will be attending the first edition of the event. The world's biggest co-working space will draw start-ups and major companies from each sector, connecting all of the players from the global digital eco-system, fostering future partnerships between start-ups and major companies, and accelerating the digital revolution.

Located in the Hall of Tech, the L’Oréal dedicated space will showcase connected beauty innovations such as the Makeup Genius app from L’Oréal Paris, the Style My Hair app from L’Oréal Professionnel, as well as My UV Patch from La Roche Posay. L’Oréal will welcome visitors for an immersion in the future of beauty.

With Style My Hair by L’Oréal Professionnel, users can virtually test a new cut, colour or style.
