Victoria – Director
I am Victoria Tarrant, the salon owner. I have been hairdressing for 13 years and have professional qualifications in creative cutting, colour correction, creative colour, hair extensions and barbering. Before establishing my own business 5 years ago, I honed my skills at the award winning Buff Urban Day Spa in Taunton – a fantastic company that has supported my transfer into business.
I love working with hair, creating new looks for people and making them feel amazing about themselves. I also really enjoy the psychology of hairdressing. The most important thing I have learned, is that to make someone feel good about themselves you first need to understand the relationship they have with their hair. Discussing how a client feels about their hair, what maintenance they realistically have time to carry out and what they would really like their hair to do for them, is the very best start to getting the most potential out of their hair and a maintenance program that they can follow.
When you have a haircut with me you don’t just get a haircut, you get advice on how to manage it, and I come with it – as your personal support line.
Mary – Designer
I’m Mary, I studied the art of hairdressing in 2005 at Bath academy, qualifying in 2007 I have since enjoyed working at prestigious salons such as Headmasters and Innovation in Bristol. However finding my niche in independent salons since, I much prefer a more personal relationship with my clients and an atmosphere that lends itself to that. I’m passionate about getting to know my client and their needs, building a relationship for the long term and never getting complacent.
Amy – Designer
I am Amy and I have 20 years Hairdressing experience. I started in Taunton Salons and after 10 years as a stylist I moved to London. I worked for Headmasters and quickly became the Salon Manager of the Hammersmith branch for 5 years.

I am qualified as a L’Oréal colour specialist which is the highest accolade you can achieve in colouring.

But now is the time to be back in a salon and there is no better place than Victoria’s Hair Design where I look forward to meeting all of you.
Sophie – Designer
I’m Sophie, hair designer at Victoria’s and I pride myself in being able to manage any hair type! After completing my apprenticeship I moved to a high end salon in London to finish my training. It was there that I learned amazing techniques, took on new challenges (like working on The X Factor) and my great passion for styling hair grew. I bring all that, and more, to my role at Victoria’s Hair Design.
