Sea Grass Salon | November 4, 5, 11 & 12 | 10:00am - 4:30pm

Be a mermaid just like the ones at the aquarium. Our very own “Sea Grass” apprentices can turn you into a magical mermaid with make-up, hair extensions and nail color. Choose your hairstyle then add make-up, nail color, accessories and a mermaid tail, if your heart desires. Then let the Magic Memories team commemorate this moment with a keepsake photo.

And boys can join in on the fun too, as our “Sea Grass” apprentices transform them into heroic mermen or daring pirates!

To book your appointment at the salon, please call 504-861-5103.
