The 70s Get the Shaft at Sweet and Sassy

From 2010.

After a Spa Day, Looking Years Younger (O.K., They’re Only 7). (The New York Times,1/2/2015)
The spa industry has begun to target children in a big way, going way beyond mother-daughter manicures. Adult spas are adding separate menus of services for girls, usually ages 4 to 14. In most major cities, there are now dedicated day spas for children, offering a range of massages, facials and other treatments for girls (and sometimes boys) too young to have had their first pimple.

The $35 Ice Princess makeover package* includes:
  • braid like Anna or Elsa (full disclosure:  this was initially a Retiring Guy stumper)
  • Ice Princess nails
  • make-up application
  • snowflake glitter star
  • Ice Princess necklace
  • Ice Princess tiara
  • Ice Princess photo
  • $2 Sassy buck
*Pricing and participation may vary by locations.  While supplies last.
The limo ride is a $50 add-on -- per person, I assume.

A DJ Dance includes the following themes
  • sock-hop 50s
  • hippie 60s
  • big hair 80s
  • neon 90s
The 70s get the

Then there's the aptly named "All About Me" birthday girl special.

No Sweet and Sassy franchises operate in the upper Midwest.
