As always, Christmas has snuck up on us and it being a mere week away doesn’t mean we’ve got all of our gifts to give under the tree. Don’t fret, though. We have something to bring a smile to everyone on your list. We promise.
For the skin conscious – This is an easy one thanks to Clarisonic. The skin cleansing system who boasts the mantra, “Clearer skin is healthier skin,” has been a favorite of ours for awhile. It works by using a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second, which, in turn, removes 6X more makeup and 2X more dirt than our hands ever could. There are options, too, with the Clarisonic Pro (perfect for the queen bee – as it is one itself – and is only available through estheticians), the Mia 2 (Pro’s baby sister is the pick for the globe-trotter, complete with a handy travel case), the Clarisonic Opal (palm-sized and designed to help around the eyes) and the Clarisonic Face and Body (the ultimate all-over skin treat).
For the lock lover – A Mason Pearson hairbrush is one object every woman longs for. After all, we know the feeling. The not mass-produced, coveted brush originated in London in 1885 and hasn’t changed much since – meaning it’s an investment that will last for Christmases to come. The brushes come in four sizes, eight colors and three pads including Boar Bristle (for fine to normal locks), Boar Bristle and Nylon (for normal to thick locks) and Nylon (for those super thick locks) and promises to clean hair, stimulate the scalp and produce a healthy sheen. Yes, please, Santa.
For the one who has it all - Sometimes gift cards get a bad rap, but there’s nothing bad about treating someone awesome to a hair cut or color, massage, facial or waxing complete with a therapist who will customize each treatment to address specific needs and wants. It’ll even score them one of our favorite above mention gifts – without the stress of picking it out. And to that, we cheers the season of giving.
Remember when we announced that hairstylist and color specialist Jenn Jones was coming part-time to Aviary? Cue good hair because you can now find her here full-time (and we couldn’t be more excited).
A North Carolina native, Jenn studied at the Aveda Institute Chapel Hill, later honing her skills working at reputable studios such as Van Michael Salon of Atlanta, Mudhoney Hair Salon in New York City and the highly acclaimed alt-salon Graceland Brooklyn – where she still makes a regular appearance. Most recently, working as a stylist and instructor at the Aveda Institute Atlanta, Jenn has made Atlanta home with her her husband, photographer Raymond McCrea Jones, and their two young sons.
With over ten years of experience behind her, Jenn has locks on well, lockdown. She has a love of color – which shows through her expertise in techniques like balayge and being named Atlanta’s best colorist by InStyle Magazine – and can make any dreamy ‘do happen.
Jenn is available Sundays from 11:00-5:00, Mondays from 9:30-5:00 and Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9:30-7:00. Contact and booking information can be found here.
Welcome to the nest, Jenn!
