Our Story
Meet Kathryn

As a former salon professional with 15 years in the industry, it was a real wake up to discover how frustrating and damaging it was to dye my own hair at home. The common dye bottle is a crude tool, messy and cheaply made. I became determined to put my salon experience to work. I knew this new tool had to be reusable. It must have precision and flow control - ending the sloppy overprocessing of ketchup-style squirt bottles. The process needed to become enjoyable AND give me confidence in the outcome.

After years of relentless development, prototypes and meticulous engineering, The Hummingbird is here, making hair color application more on purpose and less accidental for all.
