Remember, the best gifts are the ones that actual appeal to your recipient’s interests, not necessarily the items with the biggest price tags. So if you know someone a bit hair-obsessed—or at least, moderately particular about their hair—then you’re in luck. Here are gift ideas for the dude who loves his ‘do:
This water-based pomade from homegrown brand The Bearded Gent PH promises a medium to strong hold that’ll keep your buddy’s hair tamed and styled the whole day. It even has a Hugo Boss-like scent, too, so he’ll likely thank you for adding this classy-smelling hair product to his arsenal.
Shampoo, P288 (180ml); Conditioner, P288 (180ml)
Heh, top-cock. The name alone will raise a laugh out of your bro, but the shampoo and conditioner set should be much-appreciated as well. The Lemon & Sage variety will not only deep clean his hair, it’ll give that zesty, shower-fresh feel all dudes love.
BONUS: ToppCock also has a leave-on gel odor neutralizer for his man parts—there’s hair down there too after all, right? So if you’re confident enough in your friendship to pass on a bottle of this, take note that it goes for just P249.
3) Cocky Clay
And if you’re going for a theme, make sure to get this hair clay by Moe’s Professionals. It works for all hair types, though it’s particularly effective for dudes with flat or straight locks. A volumizing product with an extra strong hold and matte finish, this heavy-duty clay can tame even the wildest ‘do. The best part though? It rinses easily so no need for your bro to worry about residue.
For the friend who’s always in a hurry and goes around with oily hair a lot, here’s a practical gift that won’t offend. The dry shampoo will clean his locks from root to the tip without the need for water (so he can skip the shower if he’s running late!), and absorb and dry up excess oil and shine. It’ll even add a bit of lowkey texture for styling.
If you know someone who travels a lot, or someone who simply loves his hair too damn much, this collection is the perfect present to leave under his Christmas tree. The set contains pocket-sized tins of Uppercut Deluxe products, namely Deluxe Pomade (water-based with a strong hold to lock in any shape), TMatt Clay (to achieve that messy, rakish look), Monster Hold (a heavy petroleum-based wax for bad hair days), and Featherweight (medium grip with textured, dry finish). He’ll have something suitable to use for whatever hairstyle he’s feeling that day.
