Everyone loves to be pampered, including kids. Have you ever had your child ask you to paint their nails after seeing the colour on your own hands or toes? Or maybe they’ve grabbed your makeup brush to powder their cheeks? If you’re looking for a unique, kid-friendly spa experience, we’ve rounded up a few in and around Ottawa that will help create the most relaxing spa moment for you.
Sure, the kids will melt for the ice cream scented manicure and pedicure at Pretty Handsome Hair Salon and Spa, but we love that there is a special package for kids and mom or dad to enjoy together. The Avec Maman package offers a manicure and pedicure with mom and child for an hour which we think is such a relaxing way to connect. With the Daddy-O Spa Time package, manicures and a chocolate facial for dad and child sound heavenly! Look for their special summer camp and PD Day offerings too!
At Spa Olivia in Stittsville, kids can be pampered! We love the options that Spa Olivia offers for our trendsetting kids, like hair feathers. Kids 12 and under, and teens up to age 17 can enjoy a manicure or pedicure at a special rate.
Your spa experience together can be like a fairy tale thanks to Chiquicuts. Kids receive the royal treatment for their hair, or they can have a glammed up experience with a makeup application (perfect for the child who loves to get into our makeup bags at home!). Their complete list of services will have princes and princesses beaming with some extra sparkle and style. Be sure to look into their amazing birthday party offerings too.
Using natural spa products like Green Beaver and Urban Forest (both local companies), Sparkle Spa based in Chelsea, QC (not far from downtown Ottawa) is ready to pamper your princess. Sparkle Spa comes to you so your children, aged 4 and older, can enjoy the comfort of their own home while receiving a spa experience. This would be a memorable way to host a birthday party with your child and their friends. Book a manicure, pedicure, makeup application or facial and wait for the sparkle to arrive!
Carte Blanche Spa
If you prefer to take your child to a salon that is less focused on the kids and more traditionally for adults, and yet offer comfortable service for the kids too, check out Haute Blanche Coiffure in both Orleans and Barrhaven. They have special rates for the kid manicures and pedicures. This might be the spot to go with your pre-teen or recent grad.
