6 Hair Products That Make The Perfect Holiday Gift

No one knows your hair better than you. And when it comes to finding products that work, you know your stuff and have it down to a science. You know which shampoo and conditioner combo gives you moisture without the grease, how often you need to wash your hair, the right product to tame frizz and flyaways, and the balm, mousse or hairspray that keeps everything in place. These are your hair essentials – the products you can’t live without.

We all have those fun hair products that Great Clips stylists put in our hair that we just haven’t been able to justify purchasing. If you’ve ever seen your friends and family members after a haircut, you know how much they love the post-salon look, smell and feel. That beard oil that gives you some extra sheen, a blowout spray that provides that just-got-back-from-the-salon look, or a leave-in conditioner that makes your hair silky smooth.

With the holidays just around the corner, we’re providing you with the ultimate Great Clips “splurge” gift guide – whether you’re spoiling yourself or someone else (or both) this holiday season. Great Clips Design Team Masters Astoria Stubbs and Ashley Cain shared their favorite splurge items:

Grit Body Refresh

Grit Body Refresh hair product

Body Refresh goes well with work attire when you’re looking for a fresh-but-subtle scent. The understated scent also makes it perfect for those just starting to use fragrances. “Since the younger boys are not in the habit of using a fragrance just yet, it's nice that it is at a value price point,” Ashley said.

Sexy Hair So You Want It All Leave-In Treatment

Sexy Hair So You Want It All hair product

A favorite splurge item for Ashley, So You Want It All keeps hair looking great, feeling great and smelling great. “I absolutely love the smell, I love how my hair feels when I use this product before I blow dry, I love that I am able to use this every day without it weighing my hair down.”

TIGI Bed Head Masterpiece Shine Hairspray

Bed Head Masterpiece Shine Hairspray hair product

Not your average hairspray, this product turns your hair into a masterpiece. This higher-end spray is one of Ashley’s holiday splurges.

Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Shampoo

Paul Mitchel Tea Tree Shampoo Hair Product

Astoria stocks up on Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Shampoo (by the liter!) during the holiday season to curb that winter dryness. “It soothes my dry scalp and keeps the flakes down,” she said. “Plus, my family uses my stuff so it helps to keep extra!”

Solutions by Great Clips Nourishing Oil

Solutions by Great Clips Nourishing Hair Oil hair product

Nourishing Oil is great to refresh next-day curls, according to Astoria. “It also helps leave a great shine during the not-so-nice dry weather in the winter.” Simply wash and go!

Grit Flexible Style

Grit Flexible Style hair product

For guys who want a stronger hold than pomade has to offer, Astoria recommends splurging on the Grit Flexible Style. In fact, she uses it on her own hair. “It lays my baby hairs down, and when you have tight curls like mine you need some strong hold for a cute ponytail.”

We hope you’ll give the gift of GREAT hair this holiday season!
