About Colour

For busy women on the go, Colour is the personal hairstyling service that helps you look and feel your best every day.

Our amazing stylists all audition on natural, ultra-curly textured hair, and must pass a background check. We're experts in healthy hair, and love the versatility of textured hair. Our objective is to make getting your hair done so convenient and delightful, you'll never think about having to "manage" your hair again. Your hair is simply... handled.    

To say we’re redefining the hair experience for women of color is true, but our real mission is to redefine hair care as an industry. 

Colour App founder Debra Shigley

Our Story

Colour was founded by Harvard alumna Debra Shigley (College ‘00).

Debra is a former beauty editor, attorney, and author of The Go-Getter Girl’s Guide who has been a regular contributor on the TODAY Show, CBS This Morning, CNN, and many more. She first had the idea to create Colour when as a young employment lawyer, she found herself waiting all day in salons for a wash-and-set. As a busy mom of four, she felt there just had to be a better way! Debra later attended beauty school while living abroad in Mexico City.
