Our little Mousekatot turned 3 this past November.
In all three years, she has never had her hair cut, except for a few terrible bang trims by yours truly just so the poor girl could see where she was going.
I realized that her hair was getting so long and the ends were becoming split and uneven. So, as hard as it was for me emotionally, it was time for her to get her first haircut.
When the decision was made, the search began for a child themed place to take her. I know she is a little nervous about new experiences, so I wanted to make sure the place was really kid-centric so that she would feel the most comfortable. (Plus, I wanted to take really cute pictures and make the experience as exciting for her as possible.)
When looking online, I came across this really cute salon called Sweet & Sassy at a mall that is out of town for us, but we still visit frequently.
I mean, the place is just bursting with little girl cuteness.
I love that they make everything really special and offer a variety of services including manicures, pedicures, spa treatments and even themed birthday parties.
There are a variety of different kinds of haircut packages that are available on their website. Because of Lily’s age, she was able to qualify for a toddler package which included her haircut, glitter face tattoo, sparkles in her hair and a lollipop, all for under $20.
She was a little nervous when she first jumped up in the chair and they put the smock over her.
Luckily, they are experienced in dealing with nervous kids and they are prepared.
Each station has its own television that plays a Netflix show (ours was Barbie) and the stylist was wonderful and interacted with Lily to put her at ease.
The whole process was a wonderful experience.
The stylist really listened and only took a little off of Lily’s hair and trimmed her bangs for us, and Lily felt like a little princess.
In addition to everything else there is also a sundae bar that lets little girls pick out different bath products to take home.
(There is also a lotion and body spray bar.)
The place for pedicures was absolutely adorable and looked like something out of Barbie’s Dream House.
When we were there, two girls were celebrating their birthdays. One party was almost over and another one was ready to begin, so the place was packed, but everyone looked like they were having a great time.
Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I really think that we will be going back next time Lily needs a haircut.
She already loves having her nails done at home, so I think we are going to have a girly-girl who also loves to play with her dinosaurs and get a little messy, too.
