Just like the title looking for anyone who runs a girls salon/party room that does Kids pamper parties?
I have a minimum of 6 children and a max of 12 although my very first one was 15 five year olds .Thanks for the reply,I'm looking to do them Friday after school Saturday & Sunday but hopefully this will be my main income,so looking to be fully booked most weekend s,I understand they will be tiring lol but I've got 3 kids I'm used to it,just wanted to know if they are popular and get lots of bookings and how you run them? What you do for a kids party? Thanks

I allow 2 hours and they get party hairstyles (curls, braids, buns, spacebuns, glitter partings etc, colour hairspray or hair chalk. Then mini mani & pedi, glitter makeup, temporary tatooes , all depends on age, we tailor it to suit. For younger ones under 7 we do games such as pin the horn on the unicorn, pass the parcel and over 7 they like musical statues and I have prizes. They normally have a birthday cake and we all sing happy birthday and
I lay on a light buffet of finger food and pink lemonade and they get a little goody bag when they go.
Mums in my area go all out for their kids birthday and even though they spend all that on the party with a party bag included, lately the mums have taken to buying robes and getting all the girls names embroidered on them as a take home treat and then often take the kids out to a local restaurant after or do a sleepover! These kids have a lovely life!
So if you had a Saturday assistant that would be a big help for the day with setting up etc and tidying up after and depending on age about £30 a day so they can do the makeup/ nails while you do the hair. It’s a lovely job for a 15/16 yr old still at school and not much to pay for all that help. Or pay someone maybe £15 to just come for a few hours?See I will be renting and can't really afford to have anyone helping me that's why I'll be keeping it to small numbers,I'm under no illusions it'll be hard and as you say chaos but I'm hoping the more I do the more I get a good routine,I am giving myself half hour between parties to get organized for the next,I'm just doing candy buffets so will just top the sweets up,the birthday decorations will all be up and I'll just add any balloons that maybe burst/taken away,tidy up and ready for the next,I'll probably start early in the morning and have everything I need organised as much as I can,is there anyone does these parties on there own?
Yes I bulk buy things when I see good things and have a goody box I keep stocked up to make them.Can I ask do you give party bags? I'm looking at what I could put in these and how to keep the costs down on each one thanks
I think you will find they are popular. Do a flyer advertising them to put in your party bags along with maybe a new client discount voucher & price list for your other services.Thanks for all the advice really appreciate it,I'll see how I go to begin with and see if they are popular and I can get the bookings,if it becomes really busy then I'll hopefully be able to take someone on to help out,I've got lots of work ahead of me getting up and running, everything is just happened this week,so I have given myself till February to get the room all done,(I'm going to make it completely girly as possible as it's only going to be used for this so want to make it look the part) and I need to get all my package & prices sorted, marketing,sort out all my insurances I'm actually wonder inf what I've let myself in for becoming my own boss lol x
Again thanks for the advice,can you recomend the best company for insurance for this type of thing?,I'm under the salons policy just now but will obviously need my own x
