The Holiday’s are here, fun right! But you have to make it through the holiday mayhem to get to the fun part. I am sure that it’s not just me running around crazy this time of year. Between work, family, friends, holiday shopping and holiday gatherings there is very little time to make time for me. To be honest, I am a hot mess. My nails are a mess, my hair needs to be colored and cut. All I can say is thank goodness that the Balayage look is in.
Guys I’m sure that your rolling your eyes right now. Go for it because I don’t expect you to understand. But I will tell you this, this is how all of us girls feel, so just keep that in mind.
This is where you guys are lucky. You can quickly get ready for parties and events, and you can usually bang the gift buying out in one day. Us girls envy that!
Now let me give you a little hint about gift giving. If you are at the point where you don’t have a clue as to what to get her or him, make a stop or a phone call to your special someones favorite Hair Salon or Barbershop and get them a gift card. If you want extra brownie points you can pick up their favorite professional styling products and package it all together. These items make great stocking stuffers as well.
You know when you and your girlfriend or your wife have plans to go out? Well usually the guys are left waiting for the girls to get ready, especially when your girl has long or thick hair. The infamous question that my husband asks me is if I am going to wash my hair. If the answer is yes than he knows to double the “get ready” time because I then have to blowdry my hair. Guys, most salons sell Blowdry Packages. You can purchase a package for her to go to her favorite Salon like Sulimay’s and have her hair done! She will seriously love it!
Last suggestion and this one scores big time… Call her favorite salon and make an appointment for her hair to be blown out and makeup to be done, then take her out! Call her during the day and let her know to head over to Sulimay’s for her 5:30 appointment. But… make sure you cover all the basis. You are in charge of picking up the kids from school, arranging the babysitter, picking up the wine if it’s a BYOB, and inviting friends to meet up if you think she’d like that.
This idea for the Hair Salon gift card is also a great gift for Mom, Grandmom and actually any girl in the family. To know that you took the initiative to find out what hair salon they like will go a long way with them. Trust me I see when Grandma’s come in to redeem their gift certificate that their Grandson has purchased, they are literally smitten in telling their Stylist that their Grandson got them this gift certificate.
This is a side note but when you stretch your own haircut out and your neck hair meets your back hair, girls notice that, more importantly Mom’s notice it! It doesn’t matter how old or young you are… Mom’s and grandma’s want to see a tidied up guy. Seriously, you get brownie points for something as simple as a nice haircut. So be sure to visit your Barber or Stylist to get cleaned up before you head home for the holiday’s.
