Mani Power: The Best Kid-Friendly Nail Salons Around D.C.

Read next


Longing for the days when self-care Saturdays included sleeping in, brunching, facialing, massaging, and manicuring? Us too! With kiddos afoot, we’re lucky if we get to wash our face. The secret to getting your gorgeous on without rushing through the motions is to let Junior get involved. Below are a few of our favorite hand and feet pampering salons that are both grown-up- and kid-friendly.

Progressions Salon offers an array of options for mom, including scalp treatments, facials, and all manners of nail services. And there’s a mini mani/pedi for your kiddo while they wait. The mani/pedi time for your little one does depend on their age ($10 for anyone under the age of 10, and $15 if they’re between 11-14).

R.E.A.L. Kids Family Salon and Spa
A Waldorf, Maryland favorite, R.E.A.L. Kids Family Salon and Spa has kid-tastic vibes and sea spa packages down pat. If pop would love to get in on the mani-pedi action then he should definitely try the Daddy’s Day Out Package, which includes a mini mani-pedi AND a mini facial all for $50.

Varnish Lane
If mama is going solo (because, let’s be honest, you have to go alone every now and then), Varnish Lane is the place to go for super zen vibes with a chic all white interior and waterless treatments to not only save your mani but also protect you AND the environment. Manis start at $28.

Beauty in a Beat
Started by a mom that knows the struggle of remembering the importance of self care, Beauty in a Beat is a mobile concierge that offers salon treatments starting at $35. Perfect for when you put the kiddo down for a nap and just need a little “me time.” *Slowly raises hand.
