Most little girls dream of being a princess. The dresses, the hairstyles and the fame are all sought after, and they spend hours, sometimes days, playing dress up and painting each other’s nails. After emptying their entire bins and closets of all their “princess” assets, only one thing is missing — a majestic salon in which they can be completely pampered.
The Little Ladies Club, located at 246 Old Country Road has been making little girls’ dreams come true since 1998 with their royal salon parties for girls ages one through sweet 16. Two magnificently designed party rooms — one for little princesses and one for tween and teen majesties — host two-hour events complete with make-up, hair-dos, dress up and dancing. The birthday girl, of course receives special treatment, and all of her guests enjoy a day fit for a queen.
The Little Ladies Club was founded by a professional hairstylist whose two young daughters loved to spend time with her in the salon. Gradually, the salon was turned into a spa for young girls to experience the perks of being a lady and The Little Ladies Club has been throwing magical birthday parties ever since.
Manager and part owner Erika Leek said, “It is every little girl’s dream to be special during these two hours on her birthday and there is no time during the party that she is not made to feel 100 percent important.” Aside from wearing a birthday crown throughout the entire engagement, the guest of honor gets her very own throne to sit on during pizza and cake and she is allowed access onto “Her Majesty’s Royal Chair” during manicures and pedicures.
Princesses who are one to eight years old party in the Victorian-style Her Majesty room, which has a softer, sweeter vibe than the funky and edgy Tween/Teen Queen Spa room. The little ones in Her Majesty receive darling up-dos with curls and twisties while the teen queens can rock braids, wraps and colored feathers. The young girls don themselves in poofy and frilly dresses while the older girls enjoy a more funky style that is glitzy and glamorous. When they are pleased with their high-class appearance, the girls strut down a runway and stand in front of the Hollywood stars wall. And since you can’t be a princess without some sparkle, both rooms pump up the party with hair glitter and shiny lip-gloss.
Manicures and pedicures make the little princesses feel all grown up and the tween attendees get the luxury of relaxing in massage chairs, receiving paraffin skin softening manicures and heated pedicures. They can even treat each other to mini-facials using disposable skin masks and fresh cucumbers. When they are all made up, it is time for the Tween/Teen Queen Spa attraction, Lovely Lady Lola Fortune Teller Machine, to deliver inspirational messages to each guest. Girls in both rooms receive a personalized comb and hair accessory to take home as a party favor and the celebration ends with a dance party, featuring music from Selena Gomez, Justin Beiber and One Direction.
“The glow in the dark disco celebration at the end is a really big production,” said Leek. “Everyone loves dancing! We do the freeze dance, Hokey Pokey and Cotton Eyed Joe. It’s usually one of the girls’ favorite parts of the day.”
For little princesses who have grown into lovely ladies and plan to attend glamorous, grown-up sweet 16 parties, the Little Ladies Club hosts pre-parties where the girls go in and get all dolled up for their big night out. The Little Ladies Club hosts discounted parties for end-of-the-year girl scouts and they even have a Demolition Boyz Club room with arcade games, Gamecube, pinball, trains and toys. Boys enjoy getting their hair spiked with crazy colors, and sporting bandanas and tattoos. Favors and invitations are included in the party package and if you’re too busy to shop for the perfect gift, just visit The Little Ladies Club gift shop for girls and boys gifts. Every little girl deserves to be treated like a princess and nowhere can make her feel more glamorous than The Little Ladies Club.
