A few of us on the Gear team have spent several months testing hair and beauty gadgets, as well as an array of cosmetics, to cut through the dizzying number of products out there. It can be hard to shop in this category! Thankfully, you don’t need to spend the exorbitant amount of money that I did to find the stuff that works. We’ve narrowed down our favorite beauty tech and tools that’ll make great gifts for the beauty fanatic in your life.
Be sure to check out our other gift guides, including our gift ideas for parents, new parents, kids, outdoorsy friends, audiophiles, and musicians.
