Could your face use a little freshening for fall? Meet our newest nester and glowing skin guru, Amy “Dee” Stufflebeam.

An Atlanta native, Dee began studying esthetics with the goal of becoming a make-up artist but found that helping to heal problem skin called to her. Dee comes to us most recently from Village Health Spa. Her specialty is blending natural remedies with modern skin care to find solutions for every skin type. Her favorite part of this work? The relationships she builds with her clients.

When she’s not polishing skin to perfection, you can find her kickboxing, writing or working on her show, Bleux Stockings Society, a monthly live lit event.

You can book online with Dee here.

Lite Brite: Spring Hair Inspiration

Despite the strange shifts in weather, spring is in full bloom here in Atlanta (hello, pollen) and we’re excited to freshen up your tresses! Stylist Jenni Renshaw says collar length; multi-texture hair is hot for spring. Make this “spring breeze blown” look your own in 4 steps.

  1. Set the tone: Use Davines Minu shampoo and conditioner for vibrant, juicy color.
  2. Go sleek: Blow-dry with Davines Melu heat protector spray.
  3. Get styled: Section hair into 1 to 1-1/2 inch pieces. Using a 1-1/2 inch barrel curling iron, start your curl in the middle. Leave the ends out for a tousled, wavy look.
  4. Finish it: Davines medium hold spray gives you soft, flexible hold.

To achieve this stunning shade, we’d use OWAY hair color for an organic, ammonia-free, bold and beautiful red! Craving a little more color in your life? Book an appointment for yourself here.

A note about parking at studioplex

You may have heard the news about the upcoming improvements coming to Studioplex and The Old 4th Ward. Studioplex is working to bring a boutique hotel to the space behind Serpas on the Beltline. In anticipation of it’s arrival, effective immediately, the back parking lot is closed in order to build a multi level parking structure.

In the meantime, parking at Studioplex is going to be transformed and one of our favorite additions is a valet!!! No more circling the lot hoping to find an available space, just pull in the front and drop your car off.

If you do not wish to valet your car, all the parking on Auburn Ave is still an option as is parking on Airline, just West of the Studioplex entrance. The valet will be an hourly rate similar to those at Krog Market, Inman Quarter and Ponce City Market.

Please continue to arrive a few minutes prior to your appointment in order to familiarize yourself with the new system. While change can be inconvenient, we are reminding ourselves that it is inevitable and a part of growth.

See you soon,

Amy Leavell Bransford & Aviary {Beauty & Wellness Collective}

no tricks, just treats: reward yourself with aviary's pumpkin facial

Alright, Atlanta. As you know, it’s pumpkin time. But pumpkin is not only for your porch or pie or, ahem, latte – it’s for your skin. All year around, we love our ALCHEMIST Smart Peel utilizing Sircuit's Youth Accelerator Pumpkin Enzyme Peel, but there’s something about the arrival of fall that makes it even better. And apart from it smelling good enough to eat, it comes loaded with healthy skin benefits.

By smartly targeting the skin’s receptors, the peel aids in getting rid of that icky free radical damage (which results in accelerated aging), and the power is really in the pumpkin. Concentrated pumpkin, or Cucurbita Pepo extract is rich in Beta Carotene and over 100 other nutrients. The other main ingredient, pumpkin ferment or Lactobacillus, works to exfoliate dead skin cells and impurities. All in all? It leaves your skin as vibrant as fall’s blue sky.

As a part of the facial, it’s a sure fire way to deeply cleanse pores, exfoliate and rehydrate. But seriously, don’t go eating it – we have a treat for you. If you show us this blog post upon receiving your Pumpkin Enzyme Peel, you’ll get $10 off, and, if you’re a member of Gilt City Atlanta, you can grab yourself the whole thing for $54 (not to mention the deals on Intraceuticals Rejuvenate + Atoxelene Oxygen Infusions and brow shaping that we’ve thrown in the treat basket as well).

Happy fall, friends!
