The Princess Palace opened their doors on September 29th, 2018. Coincidentally, the spa shares it’s “birthday” with the owner, Abigail Barnard. Abby grew up in Fenton Michigan and had always dreamed of opening up a kid’s spa right in the heart of her own home.
“I love my hometown and I love seeing it grow so much over the years.” She said in an interview with a local newspaper. “Being a part of that growth is something I have always dreamed of and I feel right at home when I’m here. I feel very blessed with how well the community has treated me and my dreams to own my own business.” She continued.
What exactly is a “Kids Spa?” many ask. A kid’s spa is a place where kids can go and feel “grown up” like their mom when they drink out of their faux champagne flute while getting a pedicure. It’s a place where they can go and feel comfortable doing something they may not normally do, or the exact opposite and love to do! It’s not just services the spa provides, but it’s an overall experience.
The spa is privately owned, which allows Abby to create new and exciting ideas for her clients whenever they express they want to see more. When asked about expanding, Abby said she’s hopeful one day she can franchise out, and spread the joy she does now all over the country!
Currently the spa does manis, pedis, facials, and hosts birthday parties. All services are done for entertainment purposes and are not performed with any nail tools other than a nail file. The spa does not perform gel, shellac, acrylic, or any type of nail service that includes chemicals or a license.
