My party spa owner brings next-level event planning and spa services

Avera Salon owner Jennifer Lucero grew up watching her aunt do hair in the small town where she grew up. By the age 12, she would style, cut and color anyone’s hair who would let her.

Her passion for beauty grew into a 22 year career in cosmetology. In 2014, as a single mom of three seeking to supplement her income, she combined her love of doing hair with her love of throwing parties and created My Party Spa.

It is a family business, with her 16-year-old daughter working many of the parties with her. In six years it has grown from a single person enterprise operating out of a small suitcase into a fully mobile service with multiple parties a week and over 450 clients served.

Specializing in children’s birthday, bachelorette and adult pampering parties, they also offer corporate events. Hair styling, manicures and makeup application are a few of the more popular services included in the children’s birthday party packages. Theme parties, such as unicorn and mermaid, are stylized with temporary hair color, face painting and embellishments.  Also on the menu are creativity options, such as slime labs and canvas painting. There’s even a fashion runway party option. 

My Party Spa also offers multiple ways to customize the party experience to suit any preference, including theme-specific party bags and beautifully crafted Shirley Temples. The chocolate facial is a client favorite.

For adults, services include wedding day makeup application and hair styling for the whole party. Paraffin manis and pedis, chair and scalp massage, blowouts and make-your-own body scrubs round out a build-your-own menu for Girls’ Night In and Sweet 16 parties. Bachelorette parties are another very popular offering. She has also provided services for product launches and store openings.

This highly personalized service then rounds out the day by providing full clean up and tear down after the party, so that the host can relax and enjoy the day themselves. My Party Spa aims to care for the home or party setting as their own. Jennifer’s pride and perfection can be found in every party. By paying attention to the smallest details, she delivers a refined and posh service for her discerning clients.
