Who We Are
Founded in 2013, Madison-Reed is a prestige beauty brand empowering women with the ultimate hair-color hack. Rather than settling for a suboptimal hair color "box" product or an expensive and time consuming salon visit - we provide her with a hair color experience she never thought possible: Salon-gorgeous multi-tonal hair color with shine and softness, a no-smell low chemical ingredient profile, gold standard customer service with certified licensed colorists on call, cutting-edge diagnostic color matching technology, delivered to her door/on her schedule at a revolutionary price. Our proposition represents a revolution to a $50 billion dollar hair care industry and a welcome innovation for millions of women who didn't think a better way was possible.
The above is what we do, but what is more profound is our why. Our proposition is an expression of a deep-founded belief of our founder Amy Errett, who believes all women should own their beauty, which includes deserving more and living their most brilliant and honest expression of themselves. Our company values are not just how we treat our customers but how we treat our team of 80+ employees: love, joy, courage, responsibility, and trust.
Madison-Reed is headquartered in San Francisco and we are backed by leading investors: Norwest Partners, True Ventures, Comcast Ventures and Maveron, Shea Ventures.
