Young girls can now get special makeovers in Middle Village.
“Middle Village is a good core neighborhood. There is a lot of foot traffic. The [Metropolitian] Avenue is really busy,” Seriously Spoiled owner Lisa Falco said.
Falco, a former sales director for cosmetics company Mary Kay, and her sister started the business six years ago after Falco’s daughter wanted to go to a spa for her birthday with friends.
The pair made a makeshift spa in Falco’s basement and realized the demand for a tween salon. Just half a dozen years later the Falcos now have three locations, with two others in Suffolk County.
The parties at the salons are dedicated to making the girls feel like princesses. Seriously Spoiled offers six different party packages, where tweens can throw two-hour private celebrations. Some packages include manicures, pedicures, chocolate facials, hair styling and other services, with prices ranging from $495 to $719 for eight to 10 guests.
All packages include special invitations, a tiara for birthday girls, sparkling pink lemonade, karaoke, and of course – a red carpet runway show to conclude.
“This is a place you can take them for just a special occasion or just because they want to get their nails done,” Falco said. “It builds confidence in young ladies, it teaches them how to take care of their hair and get a manicure. It’s all fun. And it teaches them good hygiene.”
For additional fees customers can order white or pink limousine service and massage therapy, among other services. Besides private parties the salon offers walk-in services and day packages, and has Seriously Spoiled clothes and other products for sale.
Falco said the Middle Village salon has already started hosting parties and has girls booked through April for their private room. Seriously Spoiled has also been a good business neighbor for Middle Village. The store has already hired 10 residents and has struck a deal with nearby Carlo’s Pizzeria to provide food for the girls after their parties.
The Falcos are planning to host an official grand opening of the salon in March with special deals.
