More than a spa, Hello Kitty Beauty spa is destination that defines exclusive posh pampering - we’re all about sugar, spice and everything incredibly nice! We approach pampering in a positive way that lets you have fun, boosts your inner beauty, makes you feel great and lets your inner princess or queen dazzle.

Now, here in Los Angeles, we already have a hotel with a special Hello Kitty hotel suite. And for the second year in a row, froyo chain Yogurtland is featuring special HK cups, spoons, and merchandise. Even the L.A. Dodgers have special Hello Kitty days for HK-loving Dodgers fans. So maybe a Hello Kitty spa isn't such an outrageous desire for L.A.'s princesses.
