Emi-Jay creates unique, one of a kind hair accessories that are hand-dyed as well as handmade. But the really fantastic thing about these chic hair ties (besides them leaving your locks snag, dent, and damage free) is that they’re the brainchild of two fifteen year old girls, Emily Matson and Julianne Goldmark. If you haven’t heard their names before now just stay tuned - they’re two Los Angeles teens that have a passion for creating and style. They’re also two Los Angeles teens that have gotten recognition from InStyle and ABC News and celebs like Jennifer Aniston and Oprah.
Besides providing these awesome little hair ties, they provide a message of hope. They donate a portion of their proceeds to charities including Locks of Love, Toys for Tots, Partners in Health Haiti, Operation Smile (Provides free surgeries for children born with cleft lips or cleft palates all over the world), and Project Knapsack (International Pen Pal and backpack exchange to increase cross-cultural awareness to students in U.S. and provides school supplies to students in developing nations). Their mission is to make affordable and unique hair accessories that will make both your outfit and your day. At the Aviary, we carry everything from animal print to bright solids to ones complete with tiny charms. They may be simple hair ties but they’re simple hair ties with a mission and that’s something we can believe in.
