About the employer

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.
