One of the reasons I love having a daughter is that I get to live vicariously through her. This could mean having a blast on rides at an amusement park (which now make me dizzy & nauseous), seeing a show for the first time, and of course, getting pampered.
When we moved to Long Island from Manhattan last year, my daughter – who had never gotten a hair cut before – decided it was time. Naturally, as the biggest girly girl I knew, I wanted her gateway into the world of primping and pampering to have a lasting impression. My vast search led me to Seriously Spoiled in Dix Hills.
We entered Seriously Spoiled and immediately knew we hit the jackpot. It was pink and pink and pink and pink. There was fun stuff to smell and fun stuff to touch and fun stuff to make and fun stuff to buy. I was in love! I mean, my daughter was in love! It was literally the place that if you looked up in the dictionary for where the best place to take a little girl is, there would be a picture of Seriously Spoiled.
The hair stylist proceeded to give my daughter one of the most thorough haircuts I’ve ever seen followed by a decadent, indulgent pedicure. I sat there jealously looking at my stringy overdue locks and gnarled nails. Alas, vicarious.
Her hair looked fantastic. So much so that we’ve only taken her to Seriously Spoiled for subsequent haircuts. Why not? It is awesome and reasonable – if not cheaper – for a kid’s cut than most other places. Add in the fact it is the most adorable dream come true place for a little girl, add in the cotton candy scented hair spray, and you can’t go wrong.
What sets Seriously Spoiled apart from similar places is they actually do haircuts, not just hair styles. Besides these fabulous haircuts and pedicures, Seriously Spoiled is a full service salon and spa for ladies under 18. They offer manicures, facials, massages, updos, glamour services, celebrations, theme events (including their triple sold out Frozen event), after school play dates, parties, Girl Scout events, American Girl hair styling, and all kinds of pampering combination packages. If you want to think even bigger – they have a 19 passenger pink limo on call and ready to glam up your special occasion!
Each time we’ve been there a different age group was enjoying a party. I was a little sad I couldn’t join, despite my continuous begging. Sadly, my over 18-ness negated my pampering invitation. Plus, I didn’t know them…
In addition to all the fabulous things they can do to you, they have a ton of options in their “Create Your Own” station for the budding cosmetic executive. Your little lady can make her own sugar scrub, lip gloss or shimmer lotion. She can even design her own “scoop” of ice cream (body scrub) – toppings and all – that will make her body smell delicious (yes, my daughter chose Mint Chip without prompting!).
Seriously Spoiled also offers a full retail space carefully curated with not only soft, cozy lounge wear but interactive creative play and pampering products that continue the spa experience at home – with a friend or parent.
Seriously Spoiled has three locations in New York – Dix Hills, Patchogue Village, and Middle Village. All locations are open Wednesday – Friday from 10am – 7pm and Saturday and Sunday from 10am – 6pm. They are also a completely nut-free facility (one of the owner’s daughters has an allergy so they are on high alert). Next time your favorite little girl needs a cut, or you are celebrating something special, check them out. You will not be disappointed!
*GIVEAWAY* Seriously Spoiled has generously offered to give away a Mint Chip Mama Spa experience to one lucky reader! This includes a haircut, mani/pedi combination and a “Create Your Own” of your choice!

Here is a little more on Seriously Spoiled because as you know – I LOVE learning about the heritage of brands:
Two sisters – one a hair stylist and one a nail tech – wanted to take their little girls to a spa. Since there were no “kid” spas out there at the time, they went to a regular “mom” spa. Once there, they got less than stellar feedback from fellow patrons.
Little did they know this experience would change their lives! It prompted them to open Seriously Spoiled, their own under 18 full service salon and spa, with the goal of offering your daughters the spa experience they would want for their daughters.
