Today’s kids are a sophisticated bunch. Gone are the days when a curled up sandwich and a round of the Okey Cokey would keep all kids happy. If they’ve got to that age where they’ve grown out of magicians and bouncy castles, you’re probably pretty stuck for ideas.
Many of our customers had been asking if we offered princess parties in the salon, they found people offering something similar in their home but nothing in a salon.
We did our first party over a year ago and it was a great success, no mess in your home and something more grown up than a typical child’s party.
For just £30 a head*, your own little wannabe Madonnas and Victoria Beckhams can book out the first floor of the salon for their own exclusive use and enjoy the high life, while the team styles their hair and paints their nails. They’ll even decorate the room with banners and balloons, provide buffet and birthday cake and funky sounds for the youngsters to dance too, when they’ve had their makeover.
‘Young girls just love feeling grown up by having their hair styled and their nails painted,’ explains owner Dannie, ‘And if they can do that while having fun with their friends, it’s even better.’
It has also enabled Dannie to put some of his more innovative ideas into action – including the launch of the birthday parties. ‘We’ve got lots more exciting developments in the pipeline,’ says Dannie, ‘Just watch this space.’
