The Redford kids’ salon has everything a little diva needs to get glam, from chocolate facials to glitter tattoos.
Few salons welcome young children. Understandable. Most of us have had an experience getting pampered but being distracting by a child acting in a way that invited some discreet side-eye. Renika Durden gets it, but she also knows that there’s no better bonding time than getting gorgeous with your kid.
That’s why her salon uses the mommy-and-me method, removing the stress from going to the shop with your little one. While mom’s being taken care of, tikes at Sugar & Spice get pampered with a variety of fun treatments like chocolate facials, pedicures, glitter tattoos and more. Party packages are available, too, for mini divas who want to get glam with their friends.
“Sugar & Spice does so well because we designed it with kids in mind first and parents second,” Durden says. “There’s always something fun to do here. Everything goes 1,000% smoother when the salon is actually a fun spot for your kid.”
Durden fondly refers to the salon as her most successful “mistake.” She says, “I put together a party for my niece, and people on social media and Instagram hyped me up so much. I started the mobile spa thing after that.”
And after recognizing the kiddie niche that her competitors weren’t filling, Durden tweaked her business model and opened the brick-and-mortar in Redford earlier this year to an incredible response. Durden plans to expand the salon to be more inclusive to men and boys by hiring more barbers and adding a pirate-themed package to the lineup.
