How To Host A Birthday Party At A Beauty Salon

Posted on: 24 May 2019

If your daughter loves giving herself facials, having manicure and pedicures, and coming up with new hairstyle ideas for her friends, consider holding her next birthday party at a beauty salon. Many of them offer private event space as well as a full menu of pampering services for her special day. 

No matter what age the young party attendees ares, they'll enjoy getting primped and preened for the afternoon while hanging out with their friends. Some salons even offer party packages featuring a selection of services as different price points. Not only will this allow your child to pick and choose what she'd most like to treat herself and her friends to, you'll most likely save money as well. 

After narrowing down a list of salons you'd like to have the party in, call each one to see if they'll consider closing the salon during the birthday celebration, and if they cater to kids. Some may even suggest caterers or bakers that they typically work with.

Here are some more tips for hosting a beauty salon birthday party:

1. Choose Child-Friendly Products and Services 

After reserving your salon of choice, pick child-friendly services that will keep the young party-goers entertained throughout the event. Some ideas include hair styling, such as braids, twists, buns and other types of up-dos, fingernail and toenail painting using whimsical stencils, and facials.

Ask the beauticians to use safe, earth-friendly products whenever possible, such as non-toxic fingernail polish, natural hair care products, including shampoos and hairsprays. You can also ask them to whip up some facials using healthy ingredients. Some ideas include smashed avocado and banana, coconut or jojoba oil, sugar, sea salt and skin-friendly essential oils for a relaxing scent. 

You an also make the facials at home using items you find in your kitchen, and transport them to the salon in air-tight containers. As another fun idea, bring in the ingredients and allow the kids to make their own blends.

2. Plan a Spa-Inspired Menu 

Create a healthy, spa-inspired menu filled with treats kids will love to eat, such as mini cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches, fresh fruit skewers, muffins and juice. Either make the treats yourself or hire a catering service to do the work for you. 

When it comes to birthday cakes, have one decorated with edible fondant scissors, nail polish bottles, combs and brushes, or serve cupcakes featuring mini plastic beautician tools on the tops as decor.
