The 34-year-old said: “There is nothing like it in Southampton, so I thought ‘why don’t I do it?’

“On arrival, children are given a fluffy robe and headband. We then style their hair and include hair glitter.

“We then paint their nails the colour of their choice before they put their feet in a bubbly foot spa. They then have their toenails painted and we offer stick-on earrings as well.

“I had three little girls celebrating a birthday last weekend and they were so happy and said it was the best day of their lives.”

Since launching on April 3, Carly, who is mum to an eight-year-old, five-year-old and ten-month-old, has received a good response to her venture and has even been inspired to introduce something new.

She said: “My boy is very aware of girly things but wanted to be pampered, so I tried to think of something he would be happy with, so that is why I came up with the Turkish barber-style pamper treatment.

“I’ve had quite a lot of interest and people saying it is such a good idea and something which is needed for boys.

“The ‘Bros’ Before Bows’ session is a Turkish-style barber treatment I’m starting in May.

“Children choosing this treatment will receive a barbers cape to wear, a tankard of ‘beer’ (fruit juice) and have a shaving experience with sensitive shaving foam and a fake razor.

“They will then be treated to a face mask and cucumber eye towel to relax, foot spa, an optional nail file and varnish, styled hair, a temporary tattoo, and a spritz of aftershave.

“It’s not about making money; I love working with children.

“The kids have endured so much change recently and it is nice to give the boys the option of a pamper too. It’s the perfect opportunity to start something for them.”

Pamper sessions are available every Sunday at Little Hair Co in Bitterne Park Triangle.
