A Christmas Gift Guide For Hair Addicts

December 14, 2017 4 min read

Christmas is fast approaching! With all the craziness that the season brings, we know that shopping for Christmas presents is often the hardest (and let’s be honest, the most stressful) part. We thought we’d help take the pressure off finding that perfect gift by sharing our very own Gift Guide, full of great options for any hair lover in your life.

OUAI Three OUAI Kit - £25


We were so excited when Jen Atkin first launched her own range of haircare. OUAI have some amazing products and this gift set makes a wonderful present. This kit features three of their best-selling products designed for texture, volume and waves: OUAI Dry Texture Foam, OUAI Volume Spray and OUAI Wave Spray (which is our personal fave!).

Tangle Teezer Compact Styler - £13.50


Tangle Teezer’s classic detangling hair brush is one of our must-haves. Their Compact Styler features the same design but in a handy handbag size, complete with a lid to keep the bristles covered and protected whilst in your bag. With an incredible range of colours and designs available, there’s sure to be one for everyone on your list this year. Our personal favourite is the brand new Rose Gold Glaze from their 2018 Christmas collection.

GHD Platinum+ Glacial Blue Styler - £175


If you’re looking to splurge on someone special, GHD have just released their brand new Glacial Blue Platinum+ Styler. This isn’t like your regular styler; it features new SMART technology that actually predicts your hair needs and then adapts accordingly. The shape allows you to create plenty of different styles as it can be used to both straighten and curl your hair, in this gorgeous new glacial blue shade. (P.S. if you’re after this for yourself, GHD’s website even allows you to send a hint to someone, too!)

Fudge Tone Up Gift Pack - £19.95


This one’s for the blondes in your life. Fudge’s Clean Blonde Violet Toning Shampoo and Clean Blonde Violet Tri-Blo Blow-Dry Spray act to banish those unwanted brassy tones in blonde, highlighted or grey hair to achieve bright, luscious locks. The set includes full sizes of both products, rather than the mini sizes you find in most gift sets, which makes it a gift that will last.

Popband Hair Ties in 'Kate' - £8


Combining functionality with style, Popbands have been developed to not only be the kindest hair ties on the market, but they also don’t leave those annoying dents and kinks in your hair. They’re constantly adding new designs to their collection and we think the ‘Kate’ style is perfect for the Christmas season. In classic colours with just enough sparkle and a gorgeous star print, you can’t go wrong with this great little stocking filler.

Philip Kingsley Let It Shine Kit - £10


This mini kit features two of Philip Kingsley’s hero products for nourishment and conditioning. With mini sizes of the Elasticiser and Daily Damage Defence, they’re designed to give your hair the boost of moisture and protection that it needs. In a cute Christmas cracker style box, this makes a great gift to find under the tree this year.

Twist Me Pretty Braids by Abby Smith Paperback Book - £14.99


Abby Smith, aka Twist Me Pretty, has long been one of our favourite hair Youtubers and bloggers. She creates the most amazing braided hair styles and she now has her very own book. Featuring 45 step-by-step tutorials for ‘beautiful everyday styles’, Abby shares some of her favourite hair styles for you to recreate yourself thanks to this handy guide. We’re all guilty of spending too much time staring at screens, so having a collection of tutorials in book form is a lovely change and makes a great Christmas gift.

Kristin Ess Hair Strand Strengthening Reconstructive Moisture Mask - £20


After a long time of hearing nothing but rave reviews of hair stylist Kristin Ess’ new line of haircare, they’re now finally available here in the UK. The range is full of cult favourites, but this hair mask is our top pick. Designed for all hair types, it works to soften your strands and add in all of that lovely hydration that your hair needs to keep it in its best condition.

Aveda The Gift Of Stronger Hair Gift Set - £49.50


Our hair is subjected to damage every single day: heat damage, chemical damage, environmental damage and, of course, physical damage. Aveda have put together a gift set which includes products all developed specifically to repair damage and help protect against it. This set includes Aveda Damage Remedy Shampoo, Aveda Damage Remedy Conditioner, Aveda Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair and Aveda Damage Remedy Split End Repair.

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Fresh Hair Mist - £38

Perfume for your hair? Oh, yes. 2018 has seen the rise of hair fragrance, with many beauty brands developing some of their most popular scents into hair fragrances. We’re big fans of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle Fresh Hair Mist, as it’s nice and light whilst featuring the same beautiful scent as the perfume. It contains a gentle formula that’s safe for your hair, with a silicone derivative that leaves hair soft and shiny, and it helps protect it against drying, too.

With so many amazing choices, you’re sure to find something that will bring lots of Christmas happiness. Whether it be for a family member, friends, or even yourself, there’s plenty of options both big and small to fill up those stockings!
