About UsInspired by a passion for fashion and many trips to the fabric store, teenage entrepreneurs Emily Matson and Julianne Goldmark founded Emi-Jay in 2009, an accessories brand that has emerged as the leader in on-trend hair ties and headbands. Armed with an impeccable sense of style, this fashion-forward design duo shows no signs of slowing down, as they embark into the apparel industry with the introduction of Tee By Emi Jay.
With their headquarters in Los Angeles, Emily and Julianne run their thriving business alongside their mothers, while being full-time college students. As they balance running a company and classes, Emily and Julianne remain the creative visionaries behind the brand, which continually grows and sets the latest trends of functional and fashionable hair accessories.
With a rapidly expanding product line and collaborations with Splendid, Honest CO., and The World Federation of United Nations Associations, Emi Jay continues to be the leading hair accessories brand. And with a commitment to providing premium accessories, all Emi Jay hair ties are handmade in the U.S.A.
Since the brand's inception in 2009, philanthropy has been at the core of Emi Jay. Each year, Emi Jay donates 20% of all company profits to charity. In early 2014, Emi Jay committed to a 5 year partnership with the renowned Children's Hospital Los Angeles. CHLA is committed to creating hope and building healthier futures for the patients and families in their care.
