Woodbury moms looking for a place to get a pedicure while their kid gets a haircut (or vice versa), look no further.
Salon Bambino opened around the first of the year at 9900 Valley Creek Road, suite 160, near Carmine’s restaurant.
Owner Sara Gruett described Salon Bambino as a family-friendly place where parents can also feel comfortable. The space is divided into two areas—one for the younger set and the other more geared toward adults.
In addition to haircuts, the salon offers manicures and pedicures, and features a “gel polish” service. “It’s the latest and greatest in the nail world,” she said.
“I just wanted a place where you can get all that and your 6-year-old can still sit and watch cartoons,” Gruett said. “Woodbury moms have their kids in tow everywhere they go.”
Gruett, who has lived in Woodbury for the past six years, said adults (men and women) can get their hair cut at Salon Bambino.
The salon also hosts parties in which youngsters can get their nails done while parents relax and have coffee.
“It’s not just another place that has TVs and suckers,” said Gruett, who has worked in salons since she was 15 years old and graduated from the Aveda Institute.
Salon Bambino is offering $5 off children’s haircuts through the end of February. Appointments are recommended, but walk-ins are accepted based on availability.
Gruett said she understands the needs of mothers in Woodbury.
“I’m a Woodbury mom,” she said. “Two of my daughters play hockey.”
Ultimately, Gruett said she wants to have a “cozy” salon where customers feel like they’re at someone’s home.
“I want to be a fixture in Woodbury,” she said.
