Bumble and bumble Products, LLC is one of 27 brands owned by Estée Lauder Companies, Inc. It was founded as a New York City hair salon in 1977 by hairdresser and entrepreneur Michael Gordon.
Michael dreamt of opening a salon that welcomed a diverse range of clients, and embraced the
forward-thinking, hyper-creative looks of the ‘60s. When he realized his dream a few years later, he chose a
name that embraced this vibe. “Bumble and bumble” stood out – it was idiosyncratic and sort of silly. No
one had any idea what it meant, but it conveyed a fun, irreverent quirkiness that felt…right.
Which was exactly the point.
