6 hair tool gifts any beauty lover will thank you for
'Tis the season of styling to the nines
Editor / December 07 2022
When it comes to gifting, it can be tricky to choose between what people 'want' and what they 'need'. Do you opt for the fabulous flashy gift that they'll love or the practical item they'll actually use?!
Well if it's a beauty junkie you're buying for, you really don't have to choose. The answer is simple: hair tool gifts. Not only are hair tools (blow-dryers, straighteners, curlers and the like) devices that most of us reach for on the daily (and are so incredibly practical), but they also happen to be visual treats, too. Christmas gifting miracle, we know.
So if you've got a beauty lover on your 'to buy for' list (or even if said person is actually, well, you), we've rounded up the most stunning styling tools on the market. Here are the hair tool gifts bound to surprise and delight any lucky giftee...
ghd platinum+ & helios Deluxe Gift Set in Champagne Gold
Our advice for choosing between a blow-dryer and a straightener? Um, don't. We know it may seem OTT, but here's the honest truth: you're going to end up having to buy both eventually anyway, so you might as well take advantage of a bundle deal, especially when it's as beautiful as this one. Housed in a festive red travel/storage case and offering ghd's iconic platinum+ styler and their incredible helios dryer (both dressed up in a chic champagne gold), it's a combo that'll end up having a pretty incredible 'cost per use' figure in the end.

Dyson Airwrap™ multi-styler
Anyone pretending they don't desperately want/need a Dyson Airwrap is straight-up kidding themselves. You know you do! So just call it a Christmas gift and get on with it. On top of the fact that it provides the best blow waves in the game, it will be the key to nailing your 'do for years to come (so yes, the price will be justified in the end, we promise). The fact that this one is looking snazzy in Christmas metallics is simply a deal-sealer!

There's no gift more game-changing than the ability to create curls that actually last. That's exactly what you'll be blessing the lucky recipient of this next-gen curler with. It features patented Cool-Air Technology that protects hair from heat damage, effortlessly creating gorgeous, long-lasting curls using a perfect mix of both cool air and heat. Snazzy!

Want an eternally bouncy blowout for Christmas? This fancy yet affordable blow-dry brush is the gift that keeps on giving. It uses 360° airflow vents to dry, style and volumise hair all at once, allowing you to easily create the flippy ends and airy body we all crave.

Mermade Hair Mermade Pro Waver 32mm
There's no time quite like summer to rock beachy, boho-esque waves. And this beach waver is the way to get 'em! It's the secret to taking the hassle (and TBH, the skill) out of styling this summer. It's a 'clamp and go' style scenario, and works a treat for touching up your natural texture post-swim (as it gives more 'tousled crimp' than 'spiraled curl' results). Two big wins!

Cloud Nine The Evergreen Collection Touch Iron
Another example of Christmas colours making a classic tool a December must-buy? This forest green straightener set! The star of the show may be the chic emerald flat iron (with instant heat and mineral-infused ceramic plates, may we add). But on top of said styler (and the silky-smooth strands or wondrous straightener-styled curls it can create), there are also an array of accessories included. Snap up one of these sets and you'll also be the glossy-haired owner of a mini paddle brush, protective heat-resistant guard, accessories bag, styling case and matching green scrunchie.
