Kid-friendly spas in Houston are a special treat for the right kid. Nothing makes my 6-year-old daughter's eyes light up quite like the idea of a "spa day" with Mom, especially when we upgrade our spa days from at-home fun to the real thing at our nearby nail salon (our tradition is to get our nails done before the first day of school). If you're looking to treat your little one to some pampering and relaxation, enjoy a special Mommy and Me experience, throw the spa birthday party of their dreams, or just get out of the Houston heat for a bit, we've got you covered with these Houston spas, nail salons, and mobile spa party hosts that will leave them feeling their best.
If you're looking for more indoor activities to stay cool and dry, check out our Indoor Fun Guide for Houston Kids. And for all the best birthday party leads, our Birthday Party Ideas Guide for Houston Kids features something for everyone, from the hottest kids party venues to entertainers who will come to your house.
Kid-Friendly Spas in Houston
This River Oaks destination offers the total spa experience for grown-ups, but unlike most full-service spas, Milk + Honey has a treatment menu specifically for children and teens. Children 5 and older can get manicures, pedicures, and hair cuts that will have them feeling beautiful. For preteens and teens 12 and older, facials are available - a perfect Mom and Me experience that can help you get in some good memories and extra brownie points with your big kid. Or you can make a day of it with your older teen (15-17) and opt for the head, hands, and feet massage together!
This family-friendly spa known for cleanliness, friendliness, and affordability has locations in West U, Pearland, and Sugar Land. Make it a family affair, children included, and decompress with a stress-relieving reflexology session. Ease their anxiety about upcoming events or soothe sore muscles after a tough sports camp with a gentle foot massage or treatment that will leave them feeling brand new. (Contact Cloud 9 for specific age requirements per service.)

You probably know this one as the cute baby spa that lets babies float around in inflatable neck rings for relaxation and exercise, and that's certainly an amazing part of the business, but Float Baby offers so much more. You can book a Posh Petite Spa session for your little ones between the ages of 2 and 8, where they'll get to dress up in robes and hair towels and be treated to finger and toenail polish services, glitter makeovers, accessories like a simple hair extension and stick-on earrings, and dry-brush eyebrow shaping. The bigger kids (4-8) also experience light makeup and a French clay face mask. These 30-minute sessions will leave your little spa lover feeling like royalty. Parties can be booked for up to 3 children.

And lavish attention awaits with specialty options that include blowouts, up-dos, makeup, hydrating facials, and even haircuts and braiding. Professional ear piercing services and party packages are a hit at Sweet and Sassy, too.

Kiddos 9 and under are welcomed into the chic kids corner at Sweet Three Nail Lounge in Katy for a special trip to the nail salon that will leave them feeling oh so special. Nails and toenails are cleaned and shaped before a soft massage of the hands or feet and a top-notch polish job.

A special menu is crafted for kids 12 and under at Herbal Nails and Spa, where little ones can relax with manicures and pedicures that will leave hands and feet looking and feeling fabulous.

A quality polish with the color of their choosing finishes it off for the perfect girls' day.

Bring the spa to your own home for their next birthday party (or just because) when you call Pamper Me Spa Party to make her feel like the most special girl in the world. Edible facials feature cucumbers, chocolate, and cupcake flavors for a fun spin on a classic spa treatment, and nail art and polish are a must for the upcoming photo session with friends! The party service includes cupcakes and sparkling juice for that extra-special touch. These 1-hour parties can be arranged for 1 to 10 guests, and Mommy and Me and Daddy Spa Day packages are also fun options to consider.
