Candy Kids Spa combines things that kids love—including more than 100 types of candy, candy-flavored facial masks, a heaping helping of personalized attention, and fun activities such as karaoke—into one memorable experience. It should come as no surprise that the company's formula is a successful one, since it was, in fact, inspired by a 6-year-old. As she told Elizabeth Carey in a 2010 Buffalo Business First feature, owner Ayanna Williams came up with the concept when her daughter requested her own special treatment after seeing the pampering going on at a traditional spa.
Williams and her daughter decided to retrieve some frosting out of the cabinet and had a good time creating their very own tasty "facial." Williams's daughter told her friends at school about it, and soon Williams started traveling to people's homes for mobile parties. She then bought a storefront on Niagara Falls Boulevard, gutting the building herself and painting the walls in bright rainbow colors. Williams eventually expanded the business to include two more locations in New York state and is in the process of creating franchises elsewhere.
The innovative spa, which has been featured on WKBW Channel 7 News, offers services ranging from candy-colored mani-pedis to a spa factory where kids can make their own lip gloss and candy-scented perfume. They also host parties to celebrate a birthday or a long-awaited truce in a war over which sister gets to sleep on the top bunk.
Pink walls, tiaras, and rows of frilly white dresses just waiting to be worn. It’s a dream come true for some children, but it wasn’t always the dream of Tiffany's Trend Salon owner Debi Lamparelli, a beauty-industry veteran who credits her niece with the idea for the kids-focused salon in an article from WNY Woman. Soon, though, she found herself as enthralled by the idea as her pintsize patrons, telling WNY reporter Ashley Johnson, “I love children and would love to celebrate a special time in their lives. I love dressing girls up and making them feel like divas.”
The love of dress up is apparent from the moment customers enter the pink-striped salon, where rows of girls aged 2–13 can be found relaxing against candy-colored overstuffed pillows as aestheticians trim and paint nails and accentuate already rosy cheeks with gentle swipes of a makeup brush. Debi and her staff take the idea of royal treatment literally, providing snowy-white princess gowns and sparkling tiaras that their pintsize customers may don to emulate their favorite Disney character or eccentric mayor. The salon also hosts spa–themed birthday parties for up to 12 girls, pampering party guests with age-appropriate indulgences such as facials, pedicures, cupcakes, and sliced cucumbers for each set of eyes.

After moving to Buffalo, Nece Bellomo found herself returning to a passion she had first discovered in her homeland of Brazil: styling hair. “I just like to make people happy, to make them beautiful,” she says, recounting how she embarked on a whirlwind of education with hair mavens from Paul Mitchell and Rusk. Seven years ago, after only six years working in other people's salons, a devoted clientele motivated Nece to open her own salon and spa.
Drawing on a sleek New York aesthetic for inspiration, Nece and her daughter—a Goldwell-educated stylist and coworker—decorated the space in blacks, whites, and silvers and hung mirrors with ornate scrollwork frames to reflect back their clients' masterful coiffures. Although Nece is drawn to modern styles and keeps abreast of the latest coloring techniques and trends, she and her team focus on shearing ’dos that suit their clients’ face shapes, preferences, and inspiration from their favorite Bjork album.
In addition to pampering tresses, the salon and spa also enhances nails with chip-resistant Gelish polish, lavishes feet with scrubs and pedicures, and waxes away unwanted body fuzz.
