Looking for inspiration for the best gifts this season? We asked the haircare experts from the Rodney Wayne Artistic team to share their top gift ideas; gifts for women, gifts for men and gorgeous gifts to help bring out the best in everyone. It’s also the busy season and choosing the right gift can take precious time. To make gift-giving simple, here are a selection of wonderful gift ideas for the perfect present to enhance beauty and style.
THE GIFT OF GOOD HAIR DAYS
Spoil your special someone and give the gift of good hair days this holiday season. Editorial Hairstylist of the Year and Rodney Wayne Artistic Team member Milly Briant says “My pick for the ultimate gift is the LIMITED-EDITION CHAMPAGNE GHD PLATINUM. The technology of the Platinum is outstanding, and in such a cool colour, makes for a really special gift. Smart tech is always a hit during holiday season and this smart straightener will be a gift to remember.”
Artistic Team coloration and shaping guru Rawiri Maurirere recommends the GHD CREATIVE CURL WAND. “I love the Creative Curl Wand because it’s a quick and easy-to- use tool to help create a salon look at home. It’s perfect if you’re wanting that beachy, tousled look – which can be created in minutes.”
“I love the LIMITED EDITION GHD LUXE DELUXE SET,” says styling expert Abhi Soni. “It’s the best gift for anyone who styles their hair. These two tools can create your dream looks from big blowouts to smooth and silky hair and Hollywood waves to beachy textured hair.”
“A perfect pick would have to be the GHD HELIOS PROFESSIONAL HAIRDRYER IN PASTEL BLUE,” Says Rodney Wayne education and Creative director Newton Cook. “It’s the gift that someone never knew they needed until they’ve used it – and even better; it comes in a cool limited-edition colour.”
LUXURY GIFT SETS WITH ADDED VALUE
Kérastase Coffret Sets are always popular and offer amazing value. They’re an excellent way to ensure hair is looking fresh and healthy, all year long.
“Another of my top gift picks is the KÉRASTASE CHROMA ABSOLU FONDANT GIFT SET COFFRET,” says Newton. “I love this set because as well as the Chroma range delivering intense nourishment and colour protection, one of the other qualities you get out of a colour care shampoo is shine, and when treating with the Soin Acide Treatment, hair is left glossy and soft – whether it has colour or not.”
For the blondes on your list, the top selection from Artistic Team balayage and blonde specialist, Olivia is the luxury KÉRASTASE CICAEXTREME GIFT SET. “It has everything needed to care for blonde hair. With strengthening properties and the ability to give hair much more shine”
Rawiri recommends the OLAPLEX MAINTAIN AND MOISTURE SET VALUE PACK, valued at $180 for just $164.85 RRP. “I love this range because it protects the integrity of the hair. Especially for big wild curly manes that need moisture in the curl. It’s a must-have for those looking for that more controlled luscious curl effect.”
LUXURY HAIRCARE GIFTS UNDER $50
Luxury haircare doesn’t have to come with a luxury price tag. Newton says “If you’re looking for something a bit smaller in size, I would recommend the KOKORO CELIA DRAGONFLY HAIR CLIP, as well as it being an exceptionally stylish hair accessory it can also be used as a beautiful broach to embellish any outfit.”
For a stocking filler, secret Santa or that extra little gift to yourself, the GHD GO GRAND GO LUXE LIMITED EDITION STYLE GIFT SET STOCKING FILLER from $45 RRP is a holiday styling hero. Featuring the number one best-selling ghd Bodyguard Heat Protect spray and luxurious hair clips , it comes in an elegant, red velvet-touch wash bag.

THE PERFECT GIFT FOR HIM
For the guy who has everything, including hair, you can’t go past the Redken Brews range of male haircare gifts. Newton recommends REDKEN WORK HARD MOULDING PASTE from just $36.50 RRP. “I find it’s perfect for pretty much all looks that need texture, natural movement as well as a firm hold. It’s my choice for creating effortlessly fresh hairstyles.”
