Shake, tilt, squeeze, shake again, turn, repeat
Color glops where it falls
Slow application cooks, fries & frizzes hair
Inky home-done look
Disposable
A dreaded task

An authentic solution from a hairdresser turned home colorist, who wasn’t willing to compromise

I had no idea it was so hard to self-apply hair color and achieve a salon look until I left my 15 year salon career. So I made it my mission to invent a better applicator, a better experience, and a better outcome for all home colorists.

—Kathryn Madison, Dye Candy Founder & Inventor of the Hummingbird
