Well Christmas is coming and lots is going on! So much is happening this weekend for families that I had to compile a special post. Here are the details of what’s on offer, there is something for everyone.
In addition to Stage Star’s production of Cinderella and the wonderful Christmas Markets in full swing (with the ‘cool and slightly scary’ addition of devils angels and St Mikulase’s walking around for this weekend and early next week) we share the following;
FRIDAY 2ND DECEMBER
Head Salon Open Night, Prague 2
18.00 to 20.00
If you’ve yet to discover this little gem of a studio in Prague 2 here is your chance! On your way home from work or when heading out for the evening, drop by and visit the friendly English speaking Head Salon! Free champagne, finger food, product giveaways and trial facial reflexology sessions from their new working partner Alison from Sole2Soul. The evening has been organised to introduce their talented stylists and therapist to Prague locals so everyone is more than welcome. Both Alison and the stylists treat kids so if you are looking for somewhere to have your kids hair cut then I can personally recommend this place.
