The other day, I posted about Sunny Mummy spa in Toronto. It’s a spa catering to mom’s with small children – and offering them childcare as part of the package.
I shared it on facebook and a client, Tammy Brooks, sent me word of an eco friendly hair salon in Victoria – The Hair Garden – that does a similar thing. She said,
“I just found a hair salon here in Victoria that is both eco-friendly and child friendly. They have a mom’s discount day, kids play area and childcare available. I was walking by, not even thinking about a haircut and HAD to walk in and chec…k it out. There was a great sidewalk chalk message outside, the doors were wide open, there was spectacular goddess artwork on the walls. I booked a cut right there. Now if the haircut is as good as the feeling I got from the place, I am hooked.”
This is a great example of focusing on a target market – eco friendly moms with small children – and creating something inspiring. The truth is that, perhaps in a few years, most spas will be offering child care. Or enough that it’s no longer new and exciting. Maybe one day it will just be expected. But for now – it’s wonderful.
Here’s a bit from their website.
