Call us cynical, but when we think about Christmas, we immediately focus on the extended retail opportunities on offer.
Particularly in the form of Christmas packs, with an array of brands providing the ideal retail option through this busy salon time. From high-end products to must-have tools, it’s no wonder these packs are flying straight off shelves and directly underneath Christmas trees.
Here are seven of our favourite Christmas packs this year.
1. Cloud Nine
Cloud Nine has collaborated with designer Emilio de la Moreno in creating their limited edition luxury gift packs. “Our ideal client is first and foremost strong, modern and in control. She knows her own mind and is not afraid to stand out,” Emilio shared, which explains the sophisticated packs, comprised of either a wide or original iron, sectioning clips and a stylish heat proof case designed by the brand.
The TIGI International Creative Team are channelling Bad Santa with a Christmas collection described as for the “yuletide rule breakers and festively fearless”. An array of product combinations packaged together in chic, but celebratory, gift sets, expand across the Bed Head and Catwalk ranges for all your clients’ product needs this gift-giving season.
If you’re partial to playful package names and reliable products and tools, evo is your perfect Christmas match. With gift sets including ‘tease the season’, ‘mr magnificent’ and ‘colour fluffer xmas lover’, evo’s next-level brushes, face balms, shampoos, conditioners and more, these evo packs are a gift for all hair types.
bhave’s Christmas packs are centred on the notion of pampering – and doesn’t everyone deserve that luxury at the end of a long year? The three gift packs each come with a cosmetic carry bag and signature vanilla scented soy candle, and are delineated into packs of ‘destress, restore and shine’, ‘repair, protect and shine’ and ‘travel in style’.
Variety is key when it comes to Affinage’s Christmas packs – with the sets coming in variations such as Boho, Moisturising, Smoothing, Blonde Bombshell, Treatment, Volume Vamp and more. The 9 distinct packs mean your clients will have a viable gift for everyone in their lives.
6. I.C.O.N. Hair
If you’re not lucky enough to be taking a Christmas vacation this year (and even if you are) I.C.O.N. Hair will readily transport you East with the INDIA Hair-Yurvedics range. The product line incorporates Moringa Oil, Argan Oil and amber, using ancient remedies to restore the hair. Encased in a vibrant and fittingly thematic box, these packages are for the more adventurous gift-giver.
7. Natural Look Australia
Expanding across hair and beauty, Natural Look’s Christmas pack selection boasts a wide range and sleek packaging. In hair, Intensive for damaged hair, Colourance for coloured hair, Static Free for frizz maintenance, Purify for hair and scalp therapy, Colourart for maximum colour, Silver Screen for interval colour and Oasis for normal to thick hair are all on the table (or shelf). In beauty, cleansing, treatment, mousse, spray, hand, nail and foot packs are provide the perfect retail extra.
Christmas packages imbue a little extra retail spending in your salon and allow your clients to spread that all-important Christmas cheer. We think it’s a win win.
