​The 411: Victoria Hunter


Victoria Hunter has been in the business of hair for over 20 years. Originally from Queensland, Australia, Hunter has traveled the world spreading her hair color gospel (she uses a unique hair painting technique), spending time in London, Hong Kong, and Paris before landing in New York. She held the illustrious position of color director at Bumble and Bumble for 13 years, all the while building an impressive editorial portfolio—her work has been featured in Vogue, Elle, Glamour, Vogue Italia, i-D, and W. But many of you may know her best in her current role, as co-owner and master colorist at the adorable Whittemore House Salon, which she opened in 2009 with fellow Bumble expat Larry Raspanti. We met Hunter back in her Bumble days when she was dyeing wigs backstage at fashion week and have been smitten—with both her coloring talents and wicked sense of humor—ever since. Here, she dishes on her tried and true beauty destinations.
