That’s why we put together a Parker Barber gift guide for all the guys in your life—read on for our ideas, then high-five yourself that it’s done. (For gift ideas for the ladies, check out our ideas at Paris Parker.)

You love him, despite all the dad jokes.

  • Grey Blending Service—Let’s face it, your teenage years probably gave him a few extra greys. This service brings a natural and youthful look to his hair, beard, and sideburns. The best part? It only takes 15 minutes, so he can get in and out quick and easy. $25-$30
  • Invati Men System—As we age, our hair thins out. Aveda’s Invati Men system is a two-step solution that reduces hair loss and makes hair thicker and fuller. $100 for two, full-sized products


Your best guy friend is always there for you, whether it’s to catch up over beers or tag along on a double date. Here’s what he will dig:

  • Signature Cut—This is the ultimate grooming experience for the guy who wants to relax and look great. He’ll get a great cut, an invigorating hot face towel, a relaxing Aveda shampoo ritual and a stress-relieving shoulder and neck massage. $35+

  • Grooming Cream—Getting ready for work is simple with Aveda’s Pure-Formance Grooming Cream, which delivers naturally simple styling with medium hold, definition, and moisture. $25


He’s your friend for life (no matter how crazy he drives you sometimes)

  • Beard Detail—This quick 15-minute service uses a blend of barbering techniques to help him achieve a killer look. $15+

Style never sleeps. 🌙

  • Shave Cream—He will feel like he just left the barbershop after every single shave with Aveda Men’s Pure-Formance Shave Cream. It helps protect his face from irritation and razor burn, leaving skin smooth and soothed. $20


There’s nothing wrong with scoring some brownie points at work.

  • Express Cut—He’s a busy guy, so this 30-minute service is perfect for his schedule. He can get in and out with a dapper cut that includes a scalp analysis, rinse and style. $25+
  • A Gift of Men’s Styling For The Road—This Aveda gift set is perfect for the man who travels a lot. He can look and feel his best on the road with high-performance shampoo, conditioner, and grooming clay. $43


He’s perhaps the most difficult to buy for. But we’ve got you covered. Here’s what he (and you) will love:

  • Botanical Refresh—This quick facial is specifically designed to make men’s skin look brighter, smoother, and more balanced. He’ll leave feeling totally refreshed. $20

We make your hair look good. This stuff helps keep it that way. 💈

  • Ear, Brow & Nose Wax—Let’s face it; this one is probably more for you than him. This 20-minute service will clean up his look and leave him feeling smooth. $25 at our Hammond location.

A gift card to Parker Barber is the perfect gift for the guys on your list—they can pick from any of our quick and refreshing services at our two locations (in Hammond and downtown New Orleans). Plus, they can enjoy a beer or whiskey while we work – enough said. Stop by or call us at (504) 679-0990 to shop.
