5 Holiday Hair Gifts People Actually Want

If we’re being totally honest, sometimes the gift of haircare can be a little bit … awkward. The last thing you want is for the gift receiver (aka your friend/partner/mom/coworker) to feel like you’re giving them a certain item because you think they need it. Not cool! But don’t worry, there are plenty of hair related gifts out there that won’t make anyone feel bad, instead, you’ll have the hair and beauty obsessee on your list jumping for joy. Here’s our list of top 5 hair-related gifts, the ones people actually want.

Coffee Table Book

Coffee table books are super chic and can be used all over the house as decor. My favorites from this year? Hair by Sam McKnight or The Drybar Guide To Good Hair For All by Alli Webb

Amazing Hair Brush

High quality brushes seem lavish and unnecessary but if you have one, you know they are sooo worth it. What’s not to love about a natural boar brush made to last a lifetime (like these beautiful ones from Christophe Robin), or in other words, the gift of smooth hair and a happy scalp forever?

Something Silk

We’ve talked about silk a lot lately (like about silk pillowcases, here) but have you heard of Silke London’s new silk hair ties? They make a perfectly luxe, snag-free gift for the minimalist on your list – and yes, they come in all black.

Super Luxe Hair Mask

As far as daily care products go, a mask is the least likely to stir up any mixed feelings. Who wouldn’t want to treat themselves to a relaxing, repairing hair mask (like Susanne Kaufmann’s Mask Intensive Repair)? If you don’t want to go the product route, give the gift of an in-salon treatment instead.

Pro Tools

Even if you figure the person you’re buying for already owns a flat-iron/curling wand/blow dryer they will absolutely appreciate the gift of a high-end, professional tool like a Harry Josh 2-in-1 curling iron. Professional tools save time, cause less damage to the hair and last a long time.
