true love is an oxygen facial

Thanks to Karina Timmel and The Atlantan for including us in this month's "Beauty Boosts." After Karina came in for an oxygen facial (she went with the Intraceuticals Rejuvenate + Instant Infusion with Atoxelene treatment), she fell in love – you know, just in time for Valentine's Day. Head over here to book yours. See you soon!

aviary's newest (full-time) bird: jenn jones

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!

stones, bones, leather, oh my

There has been number of times now that I’ve stopped someone, whether in the farmers market or on the street to compliment their piece of jewelry when they respond, “thanks, it’s Fossil and Hide”. When I learned that the unstoppable duo made up for the newest birds at the Aviary, I practically jumped up and down.

The ATL jewelry collaboration between Jenny Watts and Karen Horn Smith has taken the town by storm. Their unique approach to jewelry is captivating. Inspired by everything from rock n’ roll to taxidermy and teepees (they had their first trunk show in one), Watts and Smith create distinctive pieces to wear and love. And one thing we love about them is their utmost respect for nature and their desire to stray from mass production and generic jewels. The duo pulls from found objects like stones, bones, metal, leather, and... skulls. Try to find that somewhere else.

After a year of talk Watts and Smith teamed up to create Fossil and Hide. While they only debuted in March, the girls have created quite the following, refreshing their Tumblr and Instagram daily with new pieces. Ready to be stopped on the street friends?

Jennifer and Madonna are into it. Just sayin'

Femme Noir is the new Glam(our)

We knew red lips were HOT after last week's Red Lips & Style Tips event but check out Femme Noir featured in the March issue of Glamour Magazine. Beauty editor Kimberly Daly calls it "daring" and "irresistable." We love it because it's double pigmented and made with Camellia Oil, making this red lipstick formulated to last through any kissing scene.
