What to look for in hair gifts?
Be mindful of whether you are picking up a gift for a relaxed or natural family member or friend. This distinction will narrow your choices while keeping things relevant. Next, you want to decide on a hair product or tool.
If you know enough about them, you can opt for a product. When choosing a hair product, go for a smaller item. It doesn’t have to be a sample size, but you don’t want to give them a gallon-sized tub of moisturizer either. Keep in mind that the product may not work for them or their hair type.
You can go in a different direction and get a tool. This will open up a lot of possibilities for you. Styling tools are great gifts. Does she need a new flat iron because hers shoots out sparks when she plugs it in? Maybe a new blow dryer or even a hooded dryer for the diva who does her own hair.
Basics are also great gifts when given in bulk. You don’t have to rack your brain for this one to be a hit. Simply buy a large quantity and see the steps above on getting creative with the packaging. Remember that you want your gift to be well received, but also useful.
