Kiddie Blowouts and Candy Facials Coming to Myrtle Avenue
CLINTON HILL — Spa days aren't just for adults, according to the owner of a salon aimed just at kids.
The full-service facility designed to pamper little ones will open on Myrtle Avenue in March, treating kids to blowouts, updos with glitter spray, colorful extensions, nail art and candy facials made with all-edible ingredients.
A Kid's Dream, which will take up 2,200 square feet on the ground floor of The Emerson building at 549 Myrtle Ave., "aims to give children a safe zone for self-expression and creativity using beauty and wellness as an effective modality for helping children in a new and innovative way," owner and former teacher Sharon Doldron said.
Children will don robes and slippers as they get services that cost from $25 to $125 for haircuts, manicures for $6 and candy facials for $12.
A Kid's Dream will let children use iPads programmed with educational materials so they can learn while they relax.
"The theme is to combine hair services with the opportunity for kids to receive education," a spokesman for the company said.
Doldron, 34, decided to create the spa because she noticed a lack of salon services for children in the neighborhood. Her background in education led her to add a learning component to the pampering.
"I wanted to create a place where children and their parents can go together," the Fort Greene mother said. "Our services are generally for kids, but adults can get a cut or wash alongside their child, too."
The salon can host parties of as many as 10 children, the spokesman said.
