Victoria Tarrant

Victoria is a salon owner and hair professional since 2003.

The amount of wasted colour and associated cost convinced Victoria that there must be a better way to mix colour. The result is SmartMix, a simple app that helps stylists mix the correct amount of colour every time.

Having created in 2015, Victoria worked closely with large salons in London to perfect the app and really get to know what would work best in a busy, fast environment.
