At Pretty In Pink Spa we feel it is very important that young girls grow up realizing that being a girl is an amazing thing and should never feel anything less than AMAZING and PROUD. Our September event discusses the “Like A Girl” campaign aiming to empower girls as they write positive motivation messages, design a T-shirt with a “GIRL” power poem and of course developing positive friendships with our girl talk session, enjoy delicious snacks and of course Dance like No one is Watching!
CHCH came to Pretty in Pink Spa on Monday, July 14 to showcase us on their morning show. Watch as Lori DeAngelis interviews Sonia, staff members and campers about our spa summer camps, makeup application, in-store products and the ways we educate young girls on building self esteem.
Our events are designed for ages 6 & up
