Upon entering Lipstick & Lollipops, you will notice the decor is decidedly French Shabby Chic meets storybook princess; a place built for girls, inspired by girls.
Christine Barnhill, former elementary school teacher and owner of Lipstick & Lollipops, located at 176 North Country Rd. in Mt. Sinai, was inspired by her daughter to open the spa.
"My daughter would get invited to parties and I thought I could make this much nicer, not cheesy," she said.
The 'aha' moment hit when Barnhill took then three-year-old Jenna to see Pinkalicious The Musical on Broadway. The show is based on the popular children's book of the same name by Victoria Kann and Elizabeth Kann.
"We loved the show, and for her fourth birthday I did a Pinkalicious party at our house," she said. "Pink nails, pink hair, pink tutus, pink everything; the girls loved it. Everyone said 'Christine you have to do this,' so I did...I came up with our Pinkalicious signature party."
At a Pinkalicious party the guests, referred to as 'pinkerbelles,' are primped, poofed and pampered in the tradition of true Southern Belles while they chat with each other and nibble on red velvet cupcakes.
Other party experiences offered are the popular Pampered Girl Spa Party: Mani/pedis taken to extreme girliness, with ice cream flavored massage lotions and fruit smoothie facials. At The Rockin' Diva Party, girls unleash their inner rock stars by donning colored hair extensions and glittering stage make-up.
Lipstick & Lollipops is gearing up for its one year anniversary in May.
"We are renovating," Barnhill said. "We're adding new stations and getting new merchandise."
The renovations will be in addition to the party room with its red carpeted stage where young guests are encouraged to sing karaoke and dance under a shimmering disco ball. There is a spa room where girls can sit on chairs shaped like giant high heels with zebra stripes and have the most popular treat scooped up -- ice cream manicures and pedicures that smell like your favorite flavors.
Put a smile on the face of the little girl in your life and indulge her in the VIP (Very Important Princess) package or the Deluxe BFF (Best Friends Forever) where three or more girlfriends can enjoy an hour of spa treatments followed by a twirl on the dance floor.
Whether you're looking for a mother/daughter day of fun or a birthday party for your little girl or tween, indulge in Lipstick & Lollipops.
