celebrate International Friendship Day with us!

Happy International Friendship Day! As some of you may know, amika means friend in the language Esperanto. We’re a friend to hair, hairstylists, her, him, them, and you. This makes today (dare we say?) one of our favorite holidays of the year, which is why we’ve dedicated it to celebrating all our friends. If you want to join us in showing your bffs some extra appreciation today, we’ve got you. Keep reading to find out ways you can show your bestie you love them (hint: one of them includes a special offer from yours truly).

#1: send them a card

Remember pen pals? Let’s bring those back. There really is nothing like receiving a handwritten letter from your bff.

#2: treat them to a coffee or meal

Show your friends you care with a little pick-me-up today!

#3: treat them to a polished perfection brush

Nothing says ‘I appreciate you’ like giving the gift of a fabulous hair day. Today only, buy one polished perfection brush 1.0 for your bestie, and get one free for yourself – who said we can’t be a friend to ourselves too? [promotion ended in July 2021]

#4: quality time

Spending time with your friends is always a great way to show you care. If you can’t see them in person, that doesn’t mean you can’t still talk to them face-to-face (shout-out to our old and trusty friends-- facetime, teams, and zoom).

#5: check in on their mental health

Mental health checks are important in every relationship, and it can be something as simple as sending a text just to see how they are.

How are you showing your friends you love them today? Let us know in the comments below!
