At The Spot 2 B, we’ve realised why children love coming here with their parents, simply because they’re given the space and patience to be children.
There’s a white picket-fenced play area in the middle of the store with chalkboards for scribbling, AstroTurf to crawl over and tubs of toys to dig deep into. On selected days, we also have an experienced Nanny supervising this space so parents can truly relax and enjoy their treatment. TV screens show Nick Jr and the Disney Channel, iPads are available for those who want to play computer games, and smocks feature spaceships and farmyard animal prints.
For those who can’t fit into the fire truck, there’s an adults’ salon in the back that’s a little more sophisticated. “We found that a lot of mums want to have their haircut at the same time as the children,” says Shannon. “We’ve evolved from [catering to] just children to having beauty and hairdressing for all ages.” We also have a space developed as a separate supervised play area, too: “We want mothers to be able to relax here, and to know that their children are safe and having fun and I like to think we make children feel extremely special.”
For first-time chops there’s an adorable certificate for parents to cherish, and it includes a lock of their child’s baby-soft hair
