Your hairdresser has taken care of your style for special occasions, family pictures, weddings and home coloring emergencies all with a smile on her face. Say "thanks" at holiday time, for his birthday or another special occasion with a thoughtful gift. Although you want to avoid an overly personal gift item, there are plenty of ways to show your gratitude.
There are a plethora of books out there that expound on the classic hairstyles of the 30's, 40's and 50's and if your hair stylist is interested in that look, she'll love these detailed pictures and instructions. Include a classic vintage photograph of the old time salon for her to post in her work area and some classic bobby pins to complete the gift.
Quench the Thirst
Whether your stylist is addicted to cappuccinos, green tea or specialty martinis, you can put together a gift that will quench her thirst. A gift card to a coffee shop or a basket with a beautiful mug and coffee beans is always a welcome gift for the java lover while a set of martini glasses and some special recipes will delight the after-work cocktail enthusiast.
Hairdressers are on their feet for hours at a time and pampering is a necessity. A gift basket filled with spa products such as foot baths, lotions, candles and essential oils will delight any busy stylist. A gift certificate for a massage can also be a blessing for an achy back, neck or feet.
Novelty T-shirts can bring a smile to your hairdresser's face with sayings such as "Got Product?" or "I Will Cut You." "Kiss Me I'm a Hairdresser" or " I Run with Scissors" are just a couple of the sayings you can find on stickers, T-shirts, sweatshirts or aprons. If you know your hairdresser well enough to estimate his sense of humor, a humorous T-shirt that reflects his career is always a good choice. Be sure to determine the right shirt size before ordering your gift.
A homemade gift, especially at holiday time, is a thoughtful way to thank your personal hairdresser. Be it a tin of cookies, homemade preserves, hand-crafted ornaments or even a knitted scarf means you took the time to express your gratitude and honor your relationship. Whatever your special talent or skill, sharing it with the person that shares her skills with you is a meaningful way to celebrate any occasion.
