It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and it’s time to start talking festive gifts with your clients. As is the case here on this blog, we check out some of the fab festive present ideas that you can now offer to your clients as perfect haircare Christmas gifts.

By offering, or at the very least talking to your clients right now about the goodies you have coming, you  encourage them to help them support you over the coming months. #SupportLocal and #ShopLocal are resonating with everyone now and wherever possible people will want to shop in bricks and mortar rather than online (if they get excited and informed by you and your team).

Christmas is the time that salons can maximise all their revenue streams and retail is absolutely part of that opportunity. So let’s check out what Joico have to offer:

The season of JOI …. Introducing NEW JOICO Dazzling Duo Gift Sets

Always stylish and always popular, here’s what Joico has to say about their festive offering this year:

This year is all about luxurious simplicity. The new JOICO gift sets have a dazzling design that shows a contrast between gloss and matt, for the ultimate chic unboxing experience. Whether you’re treating your own locks or sharing this gift with a loved one, you’re sure to have a joyous hair day every day with JOICO. Knowing a person’s hair preferences can take all the fuss out of holiday shopping. JOICO have 8 hair gift sets that address the needs (and wants!) of everyone on your list — from your friend who puts their hair through the wringer (think fried hair from the flat iron) to your mum whose hair desperately needs a little moisture.
