What if, the next time you needed a haircut, you sat in your very own old-fashioned pink car or black police-chief car, watching DVDs and playing Xbox while a stylist snipped? What if your salon were equipped with a circular aquarium, and the floor featured interactive lava tiles that marbleize into a rainbow of colors when you step on them? What if, along with a new haircut, you took home balloons, lollipops, and surprise prizes?
You'd probably be in Over the Moon Kids Salon, and you'd probably be a kid—or two grownups crouching in a small trenchcoat pretending to be a kid. Here, tots rule, a philosophy expressed in everything from the whimsical decor to the just-for-fun amenities. The primary services are haircuts, manicures, pedicures, and mini-facials for children, though grownups can get nails painted while they wait. Siblings—if not getting haircuts or coloring their hair pink or green—can stave off boredom in the magic forest–themed second lounge. One of Over the Moon's most renowned draws, however, are its parties. Themed packages bundle crafts and spa treatments into celebratory sessions suited to boys and girls alike.
