Here are some gift ideas for the beauty professional in your life!
More and more beauty professionals are making a statement with their jewelry. It’s an easy way to spruce up an outfit and express personal style.
There are lots of jewelry options out there that will make the beauty professional in your life smile. For instance, a barber may appreciate a chain necklace, while women in the beauty industry might enjoy a new pair of earrings or crafty bracelets.
For many beauty professionals, coffee is what gets the creative juices flowing in the morning. There are plenty of great coffee mug design options to choose from, so you are sure to find one that fits their style and personality. You can even order a customized mug for them – perhaps with their name on it or their favorite quote.
This gift may even remind them of you every time they use it!
If you are shopping for a cosmetologist, nail technician, or barber that works in a salon or spa environment, keeping their coat or apron hung up when not in use is essential. Otherwise, they risk cluttering their workstation or getting it dirty.
A coat/apron hook is a great gift to help them stay neat and organized. To up the ante a bit, you can even purchase one that matches the style and décor of the salon/spa.
As you probably know, cosmetologists, barbers, and nail technicians use many tools throughout the day. It can be challenging to keep these tools organized, from manicure scissors to shears, clippers, scissors, scissors, and more.
A tool holder is an excellent gift for almost any beauty professional. Not only can it help them keep everything in one spot, but it will also help them find what they are looking for when in a hurry.
Every beauty professional needs a business card holder, regardless of whether they work in a salon/spa or freelance. They will undoubtedly use their business cards regularly to acquire new clientele and network with others in the industry.
If the cosmetologist, nail technician, or barber on your list doesn’t already have one – a stylish business card holder is a guaranteed home run. It will help them keep their cards organized, clean, and easily accessible.
Black uniforms are standard in cosmetology school, barbering programs, and many professional environments within the beauty industry. Accessorizing these uniforms can be great for beauty professionals to express their unique personalities and styles.
Fashionable scarfs are an excellent gift for cosmetologists and nail technicians looking to jazz up their black uniforms. They come in an array of colors and designs, so you are sure to find one that matches their style.
If you are shopping for a barber, you may want to consider stylish, comfortable shoes or a dapper bowtie. Accessories such as these can help complete their uniform and give them the added confidence they need to excel in their careers!
Reusable Water Bottle
Cosmetologists, nail technicians, and barbers need to stay hydrated throughout the day. However, when their schedules get busy, they may not be able to leave their station very often to grab a drink. A reusable water bottle is an excellent gift for the beauty professional on your list – especially if they work long hours in a salon or spa!
They can always keep it at their station, so they’ll no longer need to wait until their break to grab water. Additionally, reusable water bottles can help them save money by not purchasing bottled drinks from vending machines or nearby stores.
Another practical gift idea for a beauty professional is a lint roller – especially if you’re shopping for a hairstylist or barber. Lint rollers remove accumulated hair from the fabric without damaging the material. So, they are a convenient way to keep aprons neat and clean throughout the day.
You can usually buy this handy gift for less than $15.00. So, it’s a great choice for any budget.
Many cosmetologists, barbers, and nail technicians spend long hours on their feet. Over time, this can cause a lot of aches and pain in the feet. A foot bath is a thoughtful gift that can help them relax their muscles after a long day at work. You can even add in some Epsom salts and essential oils to make the experience even more soothing.
Cosmetologists and other beauty professionals spend all their time providing services to help others look and feel beautiful. One of the best gifts would be to give them that same opportunity. Consider buying your beauty industry friend a wax, manicure, pedicure, facial, or massage. They will love you for turning the table and allowing them to enjoy the beauty services for a change.
