No more bad hair days: Madison Color gets $4M from True Ventures

Madison Color aims to reinvent the home hair care experience, starting with color.

Trish Costello‘s insight:

Break out the champage!  Two of today’s Series A announcements are amazingly unique.  Not only are they women-led in Silicon Valley, but they are also….how should I say….middle-aged woman-led. Amy Errett has raised $4M in a Series A round, from True Ventures and Maveron, for Madison Color, a new type of in-home hair color.  And Anna Zornosa of Ruby Ribbon, house parties for shapewear, closed on a whopping $8.5M, from Mohr Davidow and Trinity Ventures.  Both are experienced entrepreneurs with great track records, creating companies for a decidely women’s market.  Last week, Mark Suster  announced his investment in two experienced Moms focusing on children’s products at Moonfrye.    Perhaps the amazing market stats highlighted in the Lean In story are getting through.  Set up your search to watch the progress of these three companies…then break out the bubbly!
