Young TALENTS by MR. ROBERTHAIR - a revolutionary training concept


Neusäß, February 7, 2024 - ROBERT ZIMMERMANN PRESENTS HIS SPECTRACULAR TRAINING CONCEPT AT TOP HAIR 2024
Hairdressing entrepreneur Robert Zimmermann has won over fourteen of the most important brands in the hairdressing industry for his unusual concept, including L'ORÉAL and L'IMAGE. Together, they will develop and implement completely new seminar concepts. 
MAKING A DIFFERENCE TOGETHER
Robert Zimmermann is passionate about training hairdressers. His industry partners enable him to find special talents and train them to become the crème de la crème of the hairdressing industry. Applications have already been invited via social media. A talent challenge will bring out the "Young TALENTS by MR. ROBERTHAIR" team, supported by L'Oréal Professionnel Paris and L'IMAGE. "Many talented young people would like to become hairdressers, but the notoriously low earnings during training and the increasing disinterest of salon owners nationwide in taking on trainees speaks against the attractiveness of our wonderful profession for such important young talent. I want to and will change that!" says Zimmermann.
IT'S GETTING SERIOUS
Zimmermann will present his spectacular training concept for the next generation of hairdressers together with his partners, the "Incredible FOURTEEN", on Saturday, March 23, 2024 at 11 a.m. at TOP HAIR in Düsseldorf.


L'IMAGE promotes up-and-coming talent

Successes at the Hair Games at StyleCom in Erfurt


Neusäß, November 13, 2023 - AS SPONSOR OF THE CHEMNITZ HAIRDRESSER AND COSMETIC INNING, L'IMAGE CELEBRATES THE STUDENTS' EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE

L'IMAGE once again had the honor of sponsoring and promoting this year's Hair Games at the StyleCom in Erfurt. In partnership with the hairdressing and cosmetics guild Chemnitz Mittelsachsen Zwickau, L'IMAGE supported the participation and presentation of the up-and-coming talents with practice heads - and the results speak for themselves.
ON THE PODIUM
The students supported by L'IMAGE performed remarkably at the Hair Games, which took place on November 11 and 12, 2023. With their creative hairstyles, they took 2nd place twice and the coveted first place once in various categories. The StyleCom stage provided the ideal setting for these young talents to showcase their skills. Their skills and commitment not only captivated the audience, but also impressed the expert jury with their technical finesse and creative innovation.
PROMOTING THE NEXT GENERATION
For L'IMAGE, it is an honor to be part of the journey and development of these promising students. "Supporting these competitions and nurturing young talent is at the heart of our commitment. We firmly believe that such platforms will inspire the next generation of hairdressers and beauticians and motivate them to choose hairdressing as a career," says L'IMAGE Managing Director Adina Alt.


New career opportunities at L'IMAGE

COOPERATION BETWEEN FOM UNIVERSITY AND L'IMAGE

NEUSÄSS, MARCH 8, 2023 - L'IMAGE CEO ADINA ALT SIGNS COOPERATION AGREEMENT WITH FOM AUGSBURG, SETTING A NEW COURSE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE


At L'IMAGE, training and development is a top priority. A core value of the company's philosophy includes a willingness to teach and learn, which underscores our passion for the work.


TRAINING OR STUDY? WHY NOT BOTH?


In addition to the previous classic training for commercial professions, dual studies are now also possible in the family business. L'IMAGE has been an official corporate partner of FOM Augsburg since March 2023. Martina Schedler, the management of FOM Augsburg, visited L'IMAGE at its Neusäß headquarters and signed the cooperation agreement together with CEO Adina Alt. "With this cooperation, we are enabling young people to pursue a wide range of career options," said Adina Alt.


Starting in the 2023/2024 training year, we will employ a dual student with integrated training at L'IMAGE. It will be a combination of commercial training for e-commerce and a degree in business administration/business psychology or marketing/digital media. The application phase is currently in full swing.


We also offer interested students the opportunity for pure dual studies in cooperation with FOM and L'IMAGE. The close cooperation is a logical further development. In the winter semester 2022/2023, two female students in the subject "Qualitative Research" have already written a term paper about and with L'IMAGE. There will also be student theses in the future..


OFFER FOR EMPLOYED PEOPLE OR THOSE WHO WANT TO BECOME ONE


FOM offers trainees and working people the opportunity to study without having to interrupt or give up their jobs. The range of courses on offer includes more than 40 practice-oriented degree programs from the university areas of Business & Management, Business & Psychology, Business & Law, Health & Social Services, IT Management and Engineering.

Trainee at L'IMAGE: This is what everyday life is like between a thousand heads

PRO EDUCATION - OR NO GO?

TRAINING AS AN OFFICE MANAGER AT A WHOLESALE COMPANY - WHAT CAN I EXPECT? WHAT CAN I LOOK FORWARD TO? OUR TRAINEES LIZ AND LUCIA TAKE YOU THROUGH THE TURBULENT EVERYDAY LIFE AT L'IMAGE.


Hello, my name is Liz and I am 24 years old. I've been a trainee as an office management assistant since September 2022 and I'm currently getting to know the sales department. Hej, and my name is Lucia and I am 23 years old. I've been here at L'IMAGE since September 2021 and I'm doing my apprenticeship as an office management assistant. I am already at the end of my training and can currently be found in the purchasing and accounting department.


EVERYDAY WORK - ALL JUST ROUTINE?


There is basically a set daily routine - first the day-to-day business, then everything else. For me, the day-to-day business mainly includes, in the 1st year of my apprenticeship, processing orders, creating order confirmations and creating customers. And what else belongs to it: creating and printing shipping labels, master data maintenance and also answering questions about the store, the maintenance of our training heads and of course, about the heads themselves. In the course of the three years, you get to know all the departments and have enough time to familiarize yourself with them, work in them and understand their symbiosis with each other.


After the day-to-day business, for example, you get to work on projects. Depending on what is pending or what needs to be optimized, projects and tasks come up, which are then distributed to those who are interested and responsible. Projects are not necessarily 'department-exclusive', i.e. there is also the chance to get involved in interesting topics and to get involved. We have the opportunity, and are encouraged, to dive particularly deep into the matter that we find the best possible solution for the company.


Ergo, there is a routine, but no monotony. And I appreciate that very much.


ATMOSPHERE IN THE OFFICE


The office and the colleagues invite you to stay. The flat hierarchy is lived here and thus gives a range of freedoms, which, however, do not distract from the sense of duty, but even strengthen it. The colleagues are, each in her own way, an enrichment for the work and everyday life. You are received and welcomed in a friendly manner, you get help and suggestions for solutions where you need them, and you just generally never feel let down.


GIRLS SUPPORT GIRLS!


Tasks that you don't feel ready for are not immediately forced on you, but you are slowly introduced to them. The high level of helpfulness among each other and the wide range of training courses and seminars give you time to familiarize yourself with them and build up your self-confidence.


In general, you are encouraged in your work and receive recognition and praise. Direct feedback is actually commonplace here.

If you are interested in learning new skills and knowledge, you can always contact our CEO Adina and discuss all possible ways to acquire these skills. Training is not treated as a scarce commodity.


PARTICIPATION IS NOT ONLY POSSIBLE, BUT DESIRED!


This topic is one of my personal favorites: One is heard and listened to. Opinions and ideas are more than welcome and are taken into account as far as possible and makes sense. Creativity is not nipped in the bud and the positive culture of making mistakes takes away the fear of learning by trial and error. The space to develop is given, as is the encouragement to use it. There is no such thing as looking stupid. One is expertly informed about situations, opinions, as well as views, and is sent into the learning process without feeling attacked.
