Last week when we reported on the availability of bikini waxes for 11 year old girls and manicures for toddlers, we asked Mommyish readers about their mother/daughter salon or spa practices. And as it turns, most of our mommies aren’t taking their girls for regular trips to the manicurist.

About half of our readership (42.2%) never takes their little girls to get hair treatments or mani/peds, and a slightly larger portion (42.5%) takes their kids on special occasions like weddings, birthdays, or big social functions.

While this data in no way comes close to aligning our readers with the mothers who are scheduling chemical hair straightening appointments for their 7-year-old, it’s still worth noting that nearly 60% of our mommies do take their girls to salons in some capacity – fancy bar mitzvah or not.
