If you have a hair enthusiast in your life, you have probably found yourself noticing that they already have every hair-related product on the market, making it challenging to find the ideal gift to add to their collection. This year, you don’t have to worry! Our stylists at the Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Lawrence, Kansas, have compiled the ultimate holiday gift guide that all the beauty babes in your life are guaranteed to love—and actually use. Learn more about our favorite beauty-related gifts below!
You may be wondering who wants a pillowcase for Christmas? The truth is, satin pillowcases have become increasingly popular in the beauty community in recent years, and not just because they make you feel like a princess! It’s been proven that cotton pillowcases pull and break hair, absorb moisture, sweat, saliva, and additional oils, and cause skin breakouts. With a satin pillowcase, you can expect various added benefits, including reduced overnight breakage and a frizz-free head of hair. Not only do they come in a wide variety of colors and patterns, but the soft satin fabric does not agitate your hair strands while you’re asleep. And, if you’re sticking to a strict budget this year, there’s no need to worry; there are many affordable options available!
Depending on who’s on your gift list and the generosity of your holiday budget, a Dyson Airwrap may be the life-changing styling tool the hair enthusiast in your life has been looking for. This gift is perfect for the friend who constantly blowdries or curls their hair, as it makes the process of heat styling more effortless than ever before. Not to mention that it mitigates hair damage at the same time! This hair diagnostic tool comes fully equipped with multiple different attachments capable of creating curls, waves, smoothness, and added volume. Because of the high price tag, you may choose to reserve this gift for those constantly styling their hair as they will get the most use of it. Or, if you still wish to give the gift of versatile styling, our stylists at the Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Lawrence recommend finding a more cost-effective dupe that will provide the same effect!
If you have had any conversation with your stylist recently, Olaplex has probably come up as a topic of discussion. For the past few years, Olaplex has popped up on beauty lovers’ radars as a way to achieve soft and glossy hair and repair bleached and damaged locks. While the product line may not be a holy grail for everyone, most hair enthusiasts would love to try Olaplex products, especially since they make gifting easy, offering various holiday gift sets. Purchase one of the beginner sets that include the basics like shampoo, conditioner, and bonding oil to allow your friend or family member the opportunity to see if it works for them! The majority of their products work for all hair types, textures, and levels of damage and are cruelty-free, vegan, and gluten-free.
While you may be used to drying your hair with a regular bath towel, microfiber hair towels cut down the time it takes to care for and style your hair by absorbing more water than traditional towels. As you probably know, rubbing or drying your hair with a shower towel can lead to increased damage, and the consistent friction of rubbing back and forth can lead to excessive frizz. A microfiber hair towel will also help mitigate heat damage as hair is less saturated with water when it is finally time to blow dry. Not only do these make for great gifts, but they can be perfect for stocking stuffers as well!
Hair subscription boxes are the gifts that keep on giving! These easy and quick presents may be the perfect solution for you if you are unversed in the latest hair care products and trends as beauty experts carefully curate them. Depending on which box you choose, you can pick from a variety of cruelty-free options or opt for a three-month subscription that will provide your loved one with multiple gifts well into the future. Hair subscription boxes range in a variety of all price points and can contain everything from deluxe-sample products to full-size products and styling tools. At the Z Hair Cosmetology school in Lawrence, our stylists recommend the Laurel & Reed box or the Function of Beauty box!
Similar to hair towels, microfiber scrunchies are a soft and luxurious way to keep your hair out of your face while it is drying! If you hate the feeling of a wet towel on your head, these scrunchies may be the perfect solution and can accommodate all hair lengths while providing comfort during your post-shower routine. According to user claims, these microfiber scrunchies help reduce heat drying time, absorb additional moisture, tame hair, reduce breakage, are gentle on all hair types, and are perfect for on-the-go activities like going to the gym or relaxing at the beach!
