Hosting a birthday party away from home eases the stress of party planning for mom and often receives rave reviews from the birthday girl and her guests. Gwinnett County, a suburb of Atlanta, has many options for little girls who want to take their birthday parties on the road. With all of the opportunities available, the only challenge is picking only one location!

Snip-Its, located on Scenic Highway in Snellville, offers five party options to suit any little girl. Glamour, Hollywood and Rockstar parties all include hairstyles, make up and manicures for each guest, as well as dress-up clothing to fit each theme. For the Style-A-Doll party, girls get to work on a Snip-Its doll, learning to create hairstyles and apply make-up. Each girl gets to take her doll home with her at the end of the party. A spa party includes manicures, pedicures and facial treatments. All parties include the party necessities: cake, drinks and party favors. Contact the salon for pricing and availability.
