Playing dress-up sends a little girl’s imagination spinning with thoughts of growing up, starting a career, and investing 3% of her salary in a shrewdly invested 401k. Give your little one an imaginary escape with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a Glamour Girlz makeover at Glamour Girlz, with locations in Northbrook and Bloomingdale (a $30 value).
Transforming tweens into superstars, pop stars, and princesses for the day, Glamour Girlz dolls up little ladies with individual and group party makeovers. The 30-minute Glamour Girlz makeover ($30) whips youngsters’ tresses into spunky party ’dos while coating youthful expression makers in pretty makeup applications. Fingernails are blanketed with a party polish before style rookies dash off to an interview session with fake paparazzi, during which they can promote their latest albums, talk about their nonprofit charities, or gracefully deny trips to the Bahamas. The fun-filled day will conclude with a runway premiere to showcase new looks along the Glamour Girlz runway stage.
Glamour Girlz Central
Candy-coated shades of pink, lime, and turquoise coax mini mavens into Glamour Girlz Central, a kids' makeover mecca and full service nail salon nestled in the quaint downtown Highland Park. Under the supervision of friendly staff, glittery accessories gild little pigtails, earlobes, wrists, and fingers, and mini makeup kits gloss cheeks and lips with color without the need to melt crayons in an Easy-Bake oven. Divas can opt for one-on-one pampering during an individual makeover package, or invite friends for a full-blown party with photo shoots, dress-up sessions, and mock paparazzi interviews about revelers' favorite limo colors.
