Our Story

Mint Hummingbird started in late 2017 when owner Laura had a very lovely but very bald baby girl. Laura started making headbands to match all of her daughter’s outfits, and it wasn’t long until people started requesting bows for their own little ones and a small business was born.

Today, Mint Hummingbird has expanded to offer a variety of hair accessories for all ages, including hair ties and clips. We still make the headbands that started it all, a super soft nylon band topped with a bow crafted from vegan leather or organic cotton.  The majority of our products are designed and made in Calgary, AB. 

In early 2021, thanks to the support of our customers, we were able to make a donation of 10% of our net sales from June 1, 2020 - December 31, 2020 to the Black Health Alliance. BHA is a Canadian charity dedicated to improving the health and well-being of Black people in Canada. For more information on what the Black Health Alliance is working on and the impact they have in the communities they serve, visit http://blackhealthalliance.ca/

We're still deciding on a charity to support for 2021, stay tuned.
