Promotional Products for Hair Salons and Spas: Behold the Fairest Promo Items of Them All!

A friend of mine owns a hair salon, and she recently asked me which promotional items would be best for her line of business. Off the top of my head (pun intended), I suggested a few products on the Quality Logo Products® site that I thought would work, and I’d like to share them with you as well!

The Travel Brush and Mirror is the first item I thought about, only because it seems the most logical for a hair salon or a spa. What better way to promote hair care than with your own personalized brush and mirror? I’m no narcissist, but I don’t like to get caught in a heavy wind and have my hair look like a rat’s nest, either. I could have benefited from a pocket hairbrush AND a mirror countless times, and if I had one from my favorite salon that would just make me even more loyal!

Many salons are beginning to expand and include more services, like nail care and massages. For that reason, I instantly considered the Diva Nail File and Hand Lotion. The nail file can be printed in a bright color to prevent it from camouflaging itself with the lining of your purse, and the lotion bottle won’t make you smell like your grandmother – believe me, these are both incredibly positive qualities. At any rate, customizing either of those beauty items would get your salon or spa customers to remember you and actually call you again…and they won’t have an excuse not to because your phone number would be printed right there in front of them.

A Plastic Back Massager would also make an appreciated salon gift, even if your business offers massages. I don’t care what anyone says; NOTHING compares to a real massage from an expert masseuse. These little plastic substitutes can at least give them a taste of what it’s like to receive a professional massage, right? If anything, offering your clients these mini massagers would only make them want to visit your spa more frequently!

Are you ready for my favorite promotional item suggestion for hair salons and/or spas? Okay, I’ll tell you (in case you haven’t already guessed from this blog post’s picture). I also suggested the Troll Stress Ball for my friend’s salon! Now, before you get all angry and start accusing me of calling you a troll, just hear me out. I think that our troll stress relievers are adorable; plus, the first thing you notice is the brightly-colored hair…and for good reason. If your business is doing hair, then you’d want to prevent your customers from looking like that troll – which is exactly why it’s a buzz-generating promotional item. Slap your company name and phone number on the back of this cute little guy and people aren’t likely to forget about you anytime soon!

What do you think about my salon/spa promotional item ideas? Do you think the blue-haired troll stress ball is as cute as I do? Let us know by commenting below. Thanks for reading the Quality Logo Products® blog! 🙂


Bubba is the Quality Logo Products mascot. He may have started out as "just a stress ball," but he's come a long way since the company's launch in 2003. Bubba has been immortalized in numerous vector artwork designs for internal and external promotions, and you can see him change outfits on the Quality Logo Products homepage whenever a holiday rolls around. Oh, and he thinks pants are for the birds. You can connect with Bubba on

    Hey Jill, of course I love your troll doll idea…:-)

    How about something for my hair now that I just bought a cute little VW Beetle convertible?? It is fun to ride in, but my hair gets a workout!

      I thought you’d approve of that! Hahaha…and yes, you should probably consider a mini hairbrush from now on unless you want to have hair like the troll’s. (I’m JEALOUS, by the way. What color Beetle did you get?)
