Beauty bug bites Beirut’s littlest

Mia may be only seven years old but the Lebanese youngster knows what she wants: a manicure and pedicure in purple, a golden star stenciled onto her hair, and a facial.And while many an older woman may struggle over what works best for the complexion, to little Mia the answer is simple: chocolate.

“It makes my skin soft,” she explains, as a beautician spreads the dark goo over her face in the Spa-Tacular Salon, a professional beauty centre for children in Lebanon.

The salon is one of a handful of parlours that have opened their doors to Lebanon’s littlest, and the trend is picking up rapidly in a country reputed for its image-conscious populace.

Made of sugar and spice and many things nice, Mia’s 15-dollar (11-euro) chocolate facial is a hit with her friends who dip their index fingers into the homemade mix and then lick their fingers, squealing as they hold back their freshly-coiffed hair.

Dressed in bright pink robes, the little girls, whose ages range from five to 11, pick shades of pink and blue for their nails and settle into brightly-coloured booster seats awaiting their turn.
