When it First Entered the Market

Gender Segmentation combination of low price and
natural ingredients would fit Indias market, women use plants and herbs as part of their beauty culture. specifically catered to the women of India, how it should carve a niche market for itself in the Mens sector as well.

Income Segmentation: 2 main segments:

the poorer masses and the rest marketed its product low in cost to attract the poorer masses, and her efforts in reducing ingredients to cut price reveals her aim to minimize costs as much as possible.
NOT YET TARGETING middle class or upper class did not make any distinct segmentation of the richer classes

The LOreal Makeover

Income Segmentation: the quickly rising middle class which was gaining in affluence. fastest growing income class that represented a highly untapped market potential due to their radically different mindsets from the masses. Age Segmentation: the younger middle class from the more conservative, often older Indians, showed an increased interest in capturing the market share of the younger Indians.

Psychographic Segmentation:
LOreal segmented India into different groups based on their thinking and behavior from the older more conservative Indians who held conservative values of thriftiness more strongly and stubbornly, the younger more impressionable generation who had developed a very different and westernized view on spending and culture


Middle aged and working women became the main target of the company.

LOreals strategy targeted the more affluent that were more educated and had more disposable income to splurge on luxury items if they justified their price.

LOreal hired Ms World in an advertisement that beautiful women use LOreal, thus positioning itself as not just a basic shampoo, but one that made women beautiful. positioned LOreal higher in the market compared to the home brands which positioned themselves as cheap, value-for-money products which only served the most basic of functions of hair cleaning. LOreal India launched the program Beautiful Beginnings on 7th July 2009, an initiative which aimed to train at least 200 unprivileged school drop-out girls every year to make them employable. It was even inaugurated by Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai ,

LOreal has historically carried a premium image and price tag Viral marketing is a term coined to define the productive ways a marketing message is made available.

Home brands aimed to garner loyalty of existing users repeated use by generations of Indians would bring about feelings of trust and dependability attracted thrifty housewives who wanted the cheapest products DIFFERENTITATED : by promising better quality products to the rising middle class When LOreal first entered India :beauty education was absent, training seemed redundant and hairdressers were well satisfied with cheap local domestic brands invested heavily in education and training to boost their status in the community.

Opted complete makeover of the companies by providing wide range of products. Mass Marketing

Celibrities from different cultures are used for advertisements. Modernised Programs and events adds more effect to advertisements. approach of advertising


Established education centers are in many countries. Conducted programs related to hairdressers.

The LOreal Group is the worlds largest cosmetics & beauty company. In our opinion, we think that LOreal has successfully created a brand identity as the adverts that present the products make them look more expensive.
