Shopping can be a tricky process even when we want to surprise people who are close to us, such as our own family members. It can be even trickier if we are not close with our potential gift receiver.
Some of those “not so close, but close” people in all of our lives are definitely our teachers. Even though most of us were not too fond of them when we were children, later in life most of us realize how meaningful and important their influence was.
If you were or still are studying cosmetology, and have that one teacher who is not only a great teacher but also a wonderful person, surprising them with a lovely little gift is an amazing idea!
Cosmetology is a big field that covers multiple categories related to the art and science of beautifying. A professional cosmetologist is an expert in implementing cosmetic treatments to people’s hair, skin, and nails to beautify one’s outer appearance. If you feel like they already have everything and aren’t sure what to get for them, here’s a list of useful gift options every cosmetology teacher would be happy to receive:
- Hairstylist NecklaceIf your cosmetology teacher focused on the art of hairdressing during your studies or in their private work, then focusing on hair-related things when choosing a gift for them is definitely a good idea. Regardless of the occasion or the receiver, jewellery is usually always a smart gift option. It lasts for many years as a wonderful memory for people and can be very meaningful and beautiful if you choose the right piece that will suit their personal style and interests, such as this one. It is a simple yet elegant necklace with a comb and scissors charm pendant, depicting what they know best and love the most - the art of hairdressing.
- 4 Pack Q-tip Holder DispenserEven if they are a teacher of their art, cosmetologists usually also have their own salons where they use their talents and skills to make other people feel better in their skin. That is why getting some professional tools or equipment for their salon is going to be a great and useful way of showing them how much you appreciate their knowledge and skills. Don’t worry, you don’t need to set aside a large budget for this, there are many budget-friendly yet useful accessories all cosmetologists need, such as this pack of 4 q-tip holders that will instantly add that clean and chic aesthetics to their salon.
- Ergonomic Saddle ChairCosmetologists spend most of their working time sitting, especially if they don’t focus on hairdressing as much as they do on the skin, nails or lashes. While hairdressers have to stand most of their working hours, those cosmetologists who take care of people’s nails, lashes and skin always have to sit in order to do that job correctly. They are not like other regular teachers who stand in front of a board and teach their students theory about a subject, cosmetology teachers have to sit down and actually show their students what they do and how they do it. Prolonged sitting isn’t too healthy, and you will give them a big favor with this ergonomic chair.
- LED Light Wireless Color Therapy Face & Neck MaskCosmetologists spend most of their life helping others achieve the beauty and the confidence they deserve. By doing so, they don’t only make people’s appearances better, but the quality of their whole lives as well. What might seem like a superficial practice can actually influence a person’s life tremendously, and because of that, cosmeticians should receive a lot of recognition and respect. As they spend so much time beautifying others, why not surprise them with a lovely gift that will inspire them to care of themselves for a change? They will be absolutely thrilled to get this LED light wireless color therapy face & neck mask, they can use it after long days of work to relax and improve the condition of their own skin.
- Disinfectant JarOne of the most important things every cosmetology teacher teaches their students is the importance of disinfecting their working tools immediately after every single client. You probably already know that, as cosmetology teachers can be very strict about their students learning and actually implementing this practice. Not doing so can affect clients’ health very badly, which can end up being life-threatening. If your cosmetology teacher has always been very strict about this part, you might want to consider getting this disinfectant jar for them. It will be very useful for them while also being a funny way of showing them that you’ve learned your lessons well.
- Cosmetology Lanyard ID Badge HolderEven if you are a cosmetology student yourself, you have probably visited other beauty salons many times. It is always better when you let another professional take care of your beauty because you can relax and feel like a real queen while they beautify you. While on those salon trips, you have probably seen all cosmetology professionals wear one of those lanyard ID Badge holders so that you can easily see their names.

We live in times when wearing a face mask is a new normal reality, but for professional cosmetologist’s face masks have always been a necessary thing.
