Emily and Julianne of Emi-Jay
Last Thursday I stopped by Saks Fifth Avenue for the Emi-Jay trunk show, to meet with founders Emily and Julianne, who have been creating their own hair ties since the eighth grade. Now as seniors in high school, they have successfully built up their business alongside their mothers, who I also had the pleasure of meeting.
Emi-Jay's hair ties and headbands are hand-dyed, handmade and don't pull or dent your hair. Their headbands are wider than the ones I have, and actually feel more secure and stay in place. This spring Emi-Jay features florals and chevron prints, and pops of colors of orange, yellow and blue. Check out their entire collection at emi-jay.com.
Also during the trunk show, I got a makeup touchup and hair styled in a fishtail braid, finished off with an Emi-Jay hair tie. I couldn't leave Saks without stopping by one of my favorite designers, Helmut Lang, who partnered up with Pointy Snout for a caviar tasting.
