You can’t go through Christmas without at least one Secret Santa, and doing it in your salon will bring more excitement for your staff during the festive period.

It’s so simple to organise and it doesn’t need to be expensive; just set a budget and a date for when you will be giving the present and you’re ready to go.

Are you really a festive fanatic if you don’t own a Christmas jumper? To really get your staff in the festive spirit, hold a Christmas jumper day for everyone to get involved in.

And if they don’t own a jumper, it’s an excuse for them to go out and buy one or they could accessorise with jewellery or hats. You could even hold a competition for who wears the best jumper and give out prizes!

What’s Christmas without all the festive clichés? Whether you go all out and decorate a Christmas tree together, or hang up some subtle ornaments around the salon, your staff will get into the festive spirit in no time.

Baubles or fairy lights are a great place to start, or try adding some tinsel around your salon mirrors for an extra festive touch.

They may have to work extra hours during the festive season, so it’s important to make sure they feel happy and appreciated, so they can get into the festive spirit.

Why not throw a staff Christmas party for all your staff to enjoy? This could take place in the salon or at a nice venue nearby, and you could buy some Christmas photo booth props and take some festive photos!
