Christmas Gift Ideas: A Gift Guide from the Hair Experts

Here at Vivo, we believe everyone deserves to treat their locks well and have the best-looking hair this holiday season. But, sometimes it’s tough. With all the noise surrounding sales periods and Christmas, it is difficult to figure out what gifts to choose for your hair-loving friends and family.

The good thing is, you don’t have to worry. The Vivo team have been busy putting together Christmas gift ideas that you and your family are guaranteed to love! And what’s even better is throughout the month of November we will be launching a range of sales for specific products (hello GHD!) to make your shopping experience even better.

Now, let's get into the festive spirit and dive into Vivo’s beauty and hair Christmas gift ideas!

ghd Hair Straighteners

Vivo’s collection of GHD hair straighteners are our most popular products for the holiday session due to their amazing styling ability and hair protection functionalities. GHD are the gold standard of hair styling tools and are a brand loved by professional stylists (like us) as well as industry-leading educators. When thinking of Christmas gift ideas, GHD hair straighteners are perfect for those who style their hair regularly.

But, what makes them so special? GHD as a brand creates beautiful tools that control heat when applied to hair, protecting the quality and colour of even the most sensitive locks. They also stand the test of time, with some GHD hair straighteners lasting well beyond 3 years when they are properly cared for.

See our amazing range of GHD hair straighteners below!

Wands for Curling Hair

If the special people in your life prefer volume and curls, Vivo’s collection of hair wands may be your go-to gift. As we like to say - straight is great but curls are just as fab!

We recommend a range of curling wands including GHD and Silver Bullet. The difference between them? A GHD curling wand will give you longer lasting curls with extra heat protection whilst a Silver Bullet curling wand creates curls fast and is great for those friends and family on the go.

Whichever you choose you’ll know that those you love will be receiving their best curls yet!
