Pretty pinks, lustrous chandeliers, encouraging & empowering illustrations, sweet treats and a whole lot of fun — our recent experience at the Glama Gal Tween Spa in Vaughan was a beautiful treat for the senses.

Recently I treated my daughter and niece to a relaxing afternoon of pampering at the Vaughan location for their amazing Froyo Summer Spa Special.

Upon entering the facility, it was like my childhood dreams ignited.  It was very reminiscent of many chic boutiques I encountered in Paris.  However, not only was the spa decor absolutely lovely, but the staff was incredibly accommodating and super fun — sparking relatable conversation and animating joy and excitement for the girls.

A little 411 on the Glama Gal Tween Spa if this is your first time hearing about it.

The pretty in pink brainchild of two innovative sisters, Laura & Josie Canonne, after years of mobile at-home spa services for girls, Glama Gal Tween Spa was first opened up in 2008, the Vaughan location being their first storefront.

Currently, Glama Gals Tween Spa has 9 locations across Ontario with more to come.
What I love the most about this spa is their goal and vision – Be Confident! Be Positive! Be YOU!
Recognizing that girls experience societal pressures from peers, television, and social media, Glama Gals cultivates an accepting culture whereby girls are empowered and celebrated for who they are. Glama Gals achieves this goal by offering themed spa services that are all about affirming a tween girl’s positive spirit. With themed services such as the, “BE Unique Party Package” or the, “BE You Spa Day”, every girl’s individuality is celebrated.

Glama Gals hosts free monthly workshops where girls learn effective strategies to assist with bullying, self-esteem, and maintaining friendships. The Glama Gals have also partnered with the local Girl Guide and brownie unit, coaching girls towards achieving their feel good badge. Glama Gals also organizes a yearly Sick Kids Pajama Party, whereby Glama Gals gathers tween clientele to assist in a day at the hospital to provide services to young female hospital patients.

Along with fun and cute products available for sale at each spa for the kids to take home, they now also have their own line of non-toxic cosmetics for kids with $1 of each sale of nail polish going to Because I am a Girl.  Learn more here.

Impressive, huh?  I was completely sold on their overall goal and vision behind their brand which prompted me to continue a more personal relationship with them by becoming a proud Glambassador.

Don’t let the inclusion of Tween or Gal fool you to thinking this spa is geared towards tween’s and girls only.  This spa is great for girls and boys of all ages, especially those that range between 4-12. They offer special packages to accommodate your child’s preference and they also have one for those that prefer a more “slimier” experience.  You can check out all their day spa packages here.

And if you’re looking for where to celebrate a birthday party – look no further!

I mean, how gorgeous?  I’d hold my own adult party here if I could.  Learn more about their Birthday Packages here.

I asked the girls what there favourite part was of their Froyo Glama Gal Summer Spa experience was which included:

  • cupcake and mocktini upon arrival 
  • strawberry scented mini pedi
  • watermelon scented mini mani 
  • bananarama facial mask (with soothing cucumbermist facial spritz & cucumber eye service plus serene spa music which almost put me to sleep)
  • the yummy froyo they enjoyed during their pedicures 
  • the cool and fun pop music 
  • the awesome and engaging glam gal staff
  • the mini size DIY Spa Creations lip gloss they excitedly created on their own in the DIY Lip Gloss Station
  • the special “Official Glama Gal” first-timer certificate they received at the end with pretty hair extension 

And their response: “EVERYTHING!” and “Can I have my birthday here?” also “When are we coming back?”

In full transparency, my seven and a half year old daughter and niece are extremely honest little girls.  A little too honest at times… but what seven year old isn’t, right?  This is one of the few times I’ve seen them with gleaming eyes and permanent smiles long afterwards.  They can’t stop raving about Glama Gal Spa!

Thank you for the lovely experience, Glama Gals.  For leaving a permanent mark in their hearts, building such fond memories between cousins (and BFF’s!) and most importantly, for encouraging young girls (and boys) to be humbly confident in themselves and to continue to support and encourage one another.
