Education is prized at Whittemore House, and the salon's intimate environment offers educators the perfect forum to work closely, teaching and mentoring rising talent. Every stylist and colorist has extensive schooling and over 20 experience in the field. Victoria Hunter, Larry Raspanti and their stylist educators are committed to helping to further the craft of their peers at Whittemore and beyond.

Lead Educators

Whittemore co-owners, and former Bumble and bumble creative directors, Larry Raspanti and Victoria Hunter, are considered two of the industry's leading hair colorists and authorities on color. The pair of seasoned educators first learned the art of hair painting in Paris more than a decade ago. Since then, they have mastered the technique, infusing the classic coloring method with their own signature elements. Raspanti and Hunter have toured the country demonstrating hair painting for other stylists—they highlight the core artistry and extreme versatility of the technique that allows for both natural and bold results. Along the way, they have become passionately devoted to spreading the word about hair painting and teaching their peers that it is truly the most modern way to color hair.

Whittemore House's team of educators is available for seminars and hands-on demonstrations in cutting, styling and hair painting techniques, both in-house and at other salons around the country. For hiring rates and availability, please contact our Managing Director Christine Tsvetanov at
