Christmas gift ideas for hairdressers

Updated February 21, 2017

Remember your hairdresser or beautician at Christmas by giving her a gift she will enjoy. Hairdressers will welcome practical and stylish gift ideas. Choose gifts that help her relax after a long holiday rush of styling, washing and rolling. Top off her gift with tiny scissor accessories or a pretty stylist key chain.


Hair-related movies like "Hairspray" or "Grease" are one option for hairdressers. Or give DVD movies like "Beauty Shop" or "Hair" to your hairdresser. Tuck the DVD in a red and white popcorn box with some microwave popcorn and soda. A documentary that narrates hair history and reveals interesting hair titbits might be an enjoyable film for a stylist.


A professional diary will help a hairdresser keep track of his sessions. Choose a book with a leather cover that you can engrave with his name or initials. The inside should have pages divided into weeks, days and hour slots. Choose a large book so he can read from it easily. Pick an option with removable insides so it can be updated every year. If your hairdresser likes trendier things, choose a cover with a striped or patterned cover. Place his initial on the front.

Travel Kit

Hairdressers who travel may appreciate a travel kit to make on-the-go appointments easy. A durable plastic case opens by latches and has a removable inner tray. Hair tools such as combs, scissors and blow dryers will fit easily in the case. Fill up the case with style products like mousse, gel and special shampoos she uses. Decorate the cover of the kit with paint pens, and write her name on the surface.

Scissors Theme

Surprise your hairdresser with a scissor clock. This clock has decorative scissors for clock hands and lights up to provide time during the day or at night. Pick a hot pink clock with neon outlining. Large decorative scissors provide a decorative touch for a beauty shop, station or home office. Golden Christmas ornaments in the shape of tiny scissors add beauty to a Christmas tree.
