Park Avenue Spa!Zone is about as girly as it gets—couches and zebra-print chairs strewn with fuzzy pink pillows, and manicure tables with frilly tutus tied to the backs of the chairs. It's a good thing it's so frilly, because here girls come in for age-appropriate spa treatments that live up to little ones' wildest imaginings of what a spa is like. Manicures and pedicures begin with scented hand and foot soaks, though the polish is applied with youthful touches like sparkles or polka-dot nail art. "Frosting" facials moisturize little faces, and makeup applications and body-glitter tattoos prep kids for dress-up sessions with tutus and boas. All services are available a la carte, but parents can also reserve parties that include pizza, pink-lemonade toasts, and passes to an on-site bouncy castle guarded by a dragon who keeps his distance thanks to a fear of glitter.
