More than just fun cuts at Candy Hair Kids' Salon

At first glance, the party room at Candy Hair Salon looks too snug for ten to twelve guests, plus staff. My first impressions were quickly overruled; the best part about the party was the size of the room. The girls got to mix and mingle with each other, without drama over who was sitting where and with which friend, because they were all nearby.

Fairy Samantha met the girls upon arrival, dressed in a beautiful fairy outfit. She sat in the fairy throne with a backdrop of toadstools and enchanted forest (screens pull down for various themes), and started with a story. I thought it may be too low-key for the girls, but they loved it. She moved seamlessly to crafts (the girls made their own fairy wands, complete with plenty of glitter of course), and on to "Pass the Parcel". While the parcel was being passed, each girl took turns going to another Candy Hair team member, in the same room, to get face painting done.

On to dancing! Fairy Samantha taught the girls some fairy dances, played musical fairy statues, and allowed some free dance and dress-ups with an overflowing chest of fairy dress-up options.

These five-year-olds felt oh-so-grown-up when cordial and snacks were served on "real china" dishes. They giggled over their popcorn and finished up with some fun photo ops at the fairy throne.

"It was the best party I have ever been to!" -Amelia, 5

For a small additional fee, the staff will take a group photo, and offer a printed copy in a colourful paper frame folder to each guest to take home.

All parties are 90 minutes, and include party host and room, invitations, popcorn, chips, drinks (soft drink or cordial) and one 4"x6" group photo in a presentation folder; from $22 per guest.

Don't think it's all glam and glitter and others are left in the (fairy) dust; there are plenty of themes to include all interests, and ways to include everyone in mixed gender parties as well. Discos, superheroes, pirates, glam, fairy, and more; something for everyone. Kick it up a notch by arranging arrival in a pink limo!

If you're looking for an intimate and fun affair for your child and 7-11 of their friends, contact Candy Hair Salon and Party Room. There are several themes to choose from; be sure to clarify if you would like any hair options (I was surprised that ours didn't include any, a wrong assumption on my part that it would).

When you can't get your child to leave the party, that's an indication it must have been good!" Julie L, parent
