What can't Jen Atkin do? It's not a rhetorical question, but rather a genuine curiosity anyone who has seen her résumé might wonder. The celebrity hairstylist (favored by everyone from Khloé Kardashian to Chrissy Teigen) has launched her own successful hair care brand (Ouai), is the ambassador of the amazing Dyson hair dryer, designed a line of hair accessories with Chloe and Isabel, runs a successful website (Mane Addicts), launched hair extensions with Beauty Works, and even collaborated with Barbie. Also, she can give you the best effortless waves in your hair.
Still, if you meet Jen in person, she is warm and personal, and she gives off the impression that she truly puts her heart into each project. If she gives that same attention to gift giving for the holidays, then we needed to get her shopping advice.
"I love creating personalized, beauty related gifts for all my friends," she told us via email. "My favorite things to gift are something luxury, they wouldn't necessarily buy for themselves, and something that I know the person will use and appreciated. For example I've been putting together small travel beauty kits for some of my friends and clients filled with some of my favorite products . . . all of the in-flight essentials!"
