Katie Holmes treats daughter to day at the salon

She’s a tot who has been treated to the most extravagant of gifts all of her life, so it comes as no surprise, then, that when Suri Cruise broke her arm, mum Katie Holmes, took her to the nail salon to cheer her up. Seven-year-old Suri has been wearing heels since could walk, and we’ve seen her in the papers throwing more tantrums than any other celebrity child we know, but we can’t help thinking that taking her to the nail salon was an ingenious ideaƒ


Along with her friend, her teddy, and her mum, Suri popped to the salon in the popular Tribeca area in New York one evening to lay back and relax while they all had pedicures. It is not the first time the salon has welcomed young children to do more than simply sit and watch their mothers enjoy their treatment by enjoying treatments themselves, which seems to be a great way to attract more business. 


Often, many women miss their regular appointments or put off rebooking because they don’t want to have to bring their children along to wait for them, and while some salons often a childrens’ corner or books to keep them entertained, this salon has clearly taken a different approach, by offering children treatments at a reduced price. This way, they are ensuring that their regulars can still make their appointments while gaining a little extra money by treating the children too.
