Compared to older kids, babies require a delicate touch during haircuts — a fact that the staff at Baby Spa know all too well. Haircuts for babies last 15 to 20 minutes and are performed by trained professionals. Also worth noting is the specialised Baby Nail Cut service — meant for newborns and includes nail filing and cutting. In addition to their popular hydrotherapy sessions for babies, Baby Spa also offers haircuts and related treatments for children. Want to pamper your little princess?
