While inner beauty is important, the fact remains that outer beauty is still often used to determine SAT scores and income-tax rates. Get a leg up on life with today's Groupon: for $59, you get the Friend-a-licious BFF spa-day package for two children at Spa-Kidz in Smyrna, with a second location opening in Douglasville on July 1 (a $198 value).
Spa-Kidz indulges splendor-seeking girls with age-appropriate versions of traditional spa services. The two-and-a-half-hour Friend-a-licious package begins with a pair of luxurious facials before a mani-pedi smooths hands with a chocolate-sugar scrub, soaks tootsies in fizzy water, files all twenty tiny talons, and adorns them with funky nail designs. Manes are braided or fashioned into flowing curls and bedecked with a choice of hair bow, and mini visages receive a light dusting of kid-friendly cosmetics. Fashionistas can flaunt a stylish temporary tattoo and round out the day with a photo shoot, which provides a BFF memento just as permanent but much less restrictive than friendship shackles.
Growing up as an orphan, Spa-Kidz founder always dreamed of having a parent-child bonding experience. Now an adult, she creates a spa atmosphere where mothers and daughters can celebrate their bond while undergoing world-class pampering. Their spa packages, which are geared toward kids, include options such as mani-pedis, chocolate and pineapple facials, makeup applications, and hair styling that can transform follicles with braids or snake-like curls that do not have the power to turn people to stone.
