Playing with LEGOs, climbing at the playground and hosting tea parties can do a number on those tiny hands and feet. Give your kids a bit of pampering (and reward yourself for keeping up with ’em) at one of these nail salons that not only welcome kids, but cater to them, too. From nail salons where they can get their haircut to ones that offer toxic-free options, read on for our picks of the best kid-friendly spas around Portland.

Sit Still Salon
Not only can you get a mani-pedi at this salon, but your little fashionista can get a brand new hairdo, too. Its clientele is all kids, so you can expect that these stylists know what they’re doing when it comes to even the wiggliest toddler. If the airplane seats, suckers, television or toys don’t keep your kids still, they’ll bring out the big guns: bubbles. Up-dos, Chlorine removal (no more green hair!), ear piercings and age-appropriate makeup services are also offered.

West Linn, Or
Mani and Pedi Salon
The price is right here, even on NW 21st Avenue, with Kids’ manicures for $10, pedicures for $15, and both for $22. But if you get your own service at the same time, it comes with a complimentary beverage. Maybe a mimosa for mom or dad?

Blooming Moon Spa
For a slightly crunchier relaxing treat, take the kiddo in for a Tiny Toes Pedicure at Blooming Moon Spa ($30). Polish is non-toxic and paraben-free. Kids must be over 8 years old and accompanied by an adult. Be sure to bring flippy-floppies, because this mindful business doesn’t like the waste of disposables. Make an appointment. When you’re done, kid-friendly New American is just down the road. They even take orders online to pick up or to eat in.

Zenana Spa and Wellness Center
Your little one can get their hands or feet done with ZOYA non-toxic polish for just $15 at this spa that caters to moms during pregnancy and beyond. If you want a bonding experience, though, there’s the “Toe Time for You and Your Child, Too” service that allows the parent and child (10 & under) to snuggle up receive a pedicure side by side.

Your little princess can get flower designs here too: $10 manicure, $15 pedicure, or $25 for both. If you need your own service, there’s a complimentary beverage in it for you. For an extra special treat, all you have to do is head around the corner for either Blue Star Donuts or Ruby Jewel ice cream on Mississippi.
