It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

I love this time of year, and there are definitely some great deals to be had all over town on almost everything. I want to bring to your attention one place you may have overlooked when it comes to holiday shopping. I am definitely in strong support of shopping local and supporting hard working businesses. Your hairdresser and the salon you go to is going to have some great deals to offer you through the end of the year.

This is the time of year when our salons have access to the great deals that our product companies offer and get to pass that savings onto you. Most of these deals come in fun gift packs this time of year, but they are a way for you to save on your favorite products and the ones you always use. These savings really only come once a year, so stock up while you can. This is also a time to try out some new products and also cross a few people off your list - seriously, who doesn't love hair products? A lot of these sets are under $20, so they are great for secret Santa, Yankee swap or other gift exchanges.

Travel sizes are also out this time of year, and most salons will stock up. They are great stocking stuffers for sure, but are great for you to keep on hand for travel. I mentioned earlier that this is a good time to try something new, what a better way than a travel size. Picture two or three travel sizes paired up and packed as a really cute gift you can give (or keep) for under $10.

I find that people are always looking for travel sizes year round and it isn't always easy to get your favorite products in the mini-version, so make sure you stock up while you can. That travel size of hairspray is great for you to keep an extra in the car, your purse, on your desk and in your gym bag. This way you'll be ready for anything.

Hair salons usually also offer other great specials this time of year with Gift Certificate purchases, deals and discounts on services and other contests. I think a gift certificate makes a great gift for that friend you have been wanting to see your stylist anyways. A gift certificate is a great way for them to feel comfortable trying them out. I encourage you to make sure you check them out and support a local business and your hairdresser. After all, she/he keeps you looking your best all year long. Don't forget, while you are there, to schedule your appointments and book ahead if you have a day and time you prefer. If you love you hairdresser, I am willing to bet that many others do too. Happy shopping!
