“Creative Vision" and “Elevating the Craft" are the foundation and core beliefs of Whittemore House.

Our mission is to define the must-have hair color of the season, educate colorists and stylists in the latest hair painting and cutting techniques, while helping clients reinvent their individual look.

Whittemore House's owners Victoria Hunter and Larry Raspanti created their modern signature technique of hair painting, a step above and beyond balayage. The former color directors of Bumble & bumble opened Whittemore House in the West Village with an emphasis on building lasting client relationships through innovative hair cutting and hair color in a relaxed and genuinely welcoming atmosphere. Always at the forefront of beauty evolution, the salon offers hair painting education classes both in-house and off–site throughout the year. They encourage and support their staff and hair industry to consistently evaluate and refine their techniques.
