Aura Friedman

Creative Director and colorist at Sally Herschberger Salon, @auracolorist

Clients: Zoe Kravitz, Lady Gaga, Sky Ferreria, M.I.A, Leighton Meester, Salma Hayek

Her Gift List:  “All the products that I love and recommend are for dry, bleached, and damaged hair. These products will keep the shine, luster, and color of your hair brilliant, but most of all, it will maintain strong and healthy hair. My number one is the K18 hair leave-in mask. It replicates the genome and the DNA of strong virgin hair. It’s truly a miracle product and will be available in January. Unwash makes the best cleansing milk/ conditioner. It’s ideal for cleansing bleached hair, but also great for dry, curly hair as well. I also love Oribe’s Cleansing Creme for Moisture and Control. Way of Nature makes a great in-shower moisturizing and strengthening mask and oil. It’s a small-batch delicious creation that I use after cleansing.”

Shop: K18 Leave-In Molecular Repair Hair Mask, $12.00

Shop: Unwash Bio-Cleansing Conditioner, $29.00

Shop: Oribe’s Cleansing Creme for Moisture and Control, $46.00

Morgan Parks

Senior Stylist at Nine Zero One Salon, @morganparks_

Clients: Nina Dobrev, Jenna Johnson, Witney Carson, Lauren Bushnell

Her Gift List: “The Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer is pricey ($399), but the amount of time you save blow-drying your hair makes the investment worth it. Unite’s 7SECONDS Leave-In Conditioner is a staple product that detangles your hair and promotes healthy, shiny locks. Also, I think the Fromm Elite Flexer Detangling Vent Brush would be perfect for a stocking stuffer. It comes in a really pretty marble!”

Silvia Reis

Colorist, Blonde Specialist, and Youtube Influencer, @silviaxreis

Her Gift List: “Gisou makes a very rich and luscious hair oil. It will leave your hair feeling soft and luxe! I think OUAI’s dry shampoo smells amazing, especially their most recent collaboration with Byredo. Not to mention, it leaves your hair feeling clean without an overly powder feeling.”
