HAUS Salon

If you're a meat 'n' potatoes type of guy or gal, you may want to hit up the beauty salon or barber shop down the street. But if you're looking for an experience that elevates you into the realm of fabulous, make yourself standing appointments for cutting, coloring, texturizing, and brow waxing at Nicollet Avenue's nationally recognized HAUS Salon. Following an auspicious opening just two years ago, in which its team partnered with notable movers and shakers who lent a hand with everything from art curation to branding to interior design, HAUS has been a place that is clearly looking to get noticed. And it has been. Co-founders Jessica Reipke (salon director) and Charlie Brackney (creative director) are known for staying on top of cutting-edge hair trends, catering to the outrageous, adventurous trendsetter as readily as the conservative, "don't go too short" client. Either way, if you're also a person looking to be noticed — and aren't we all? — you and HAUS might just be a match made in south Minneapolis.
