Rainy day blues? We’ve got just the thing for you. One of our favorite locals artists “HOTTEA” (Eric Rieger), has a fantastic installation at the Burnet Gallery, part of Le Méridien Chambers downtown. We have an amazing piece from him up in the salon, and it’s always a point of conversation. If you’re an Instagram-er, find him at “hotteampls”! Check out this great article from the Star Tribune about his upcoming work. xoxo
We’re in a celebratory mood! We’re so excited about our nod(s!) from the City Pages, our new art installation by Jesse Draxler, and our fabulous curator Emma Berg’s fashions being on display at our party this weekend! With all of this fun ahead of us, we need some music to go with it. Here are some fabulous summer tunes we’ll be jamming to at the fête May 11. We can’t wait to see you. -xoxo
Janelle Monae + Erykah Badu with “Q.U.E.E.N.”
Daft Punk + Pharrell Williams with “Get Lucky”
Robin Thicke + T.I. + Pharrell Williams with “Blurred Lines”
We’re so excited to be hosting a party this Saturday the 11th! You’re invited, it’s 6-9pm at the salon(4240 Nicollet Ave S). So now we have to figure out what to wear. Cocktail attire can be so much fun to play with, and this summer it’s all about putting a modern spin on classic silhouettes. Dresses have taken on new shapes that are fun to play with on all body types. Here are a few dress + heel combos you can use as inspiration for our fête. See you there! -xoxo
Color-blocked dress by Hervé Léger (It wouldn’t be a cocktail party without a Hervé Léger moment)
Manolo Blahnik Pacha Clear Pump, love the mix of textures
Alice + Olivia Frieda dress, I love how they dress Jessica Paré in Mad Men and am feeling so inspired by this cute shift with the gorgeous scalloped hem
Miu Miu Nude Block heel, it’s all about the head to toe period look!
Halston Flared Ponte dress, the exposed seems are a minor yet major detail
Rebecca Minkoff summer bootie, the nude will elongate your legs fantastically
It wouldn’t be summer without a fabulous Alexander Wang moment. This layered racer back dress is subtle yet surprising
Alexander Wang ankle strap heel, keeping it in the family!

For some reason, I held a grudge against the wedge sneaker for the longest time. Well people, I’ve seen the light! These puppies are here to stay this summer, and I’m smitten. I wear my Nike Sky Hi dunks almost everyday. They are totally comfortable and give you an extra inch or two of height. They’re perfect with jeans, leggings, or even a sun dress. These bad boys are some of my faves for this season. Move over dudes, ladies are taking over the sneaker game. -xoxo
Nike Sky Hi Dunk “Year of the Snake” available at rmkstore.com
Isabel Marant Bekett printed canvas & suede sneaker available at net-a-porter.com
Giuseppe Zanotti Calfskin sneaker with gold plaque (ooh lala!!) available at giuseppezanottidesign.com
We are honored and humbled to be recognized by the City Pages as the best salon/spa and best haircut in Minnesota. Join us tonight to celebrate at Aria! Davina and the Vagabonds will be playing a set, and there will be fabulous treats from the best restaurants in the Metro. We are so excited to be recognized, and thank all of YOU for being so loyal and fabulous. -xoxo
This Spring we’ve been blessed with an arch genius, Edwin Eyebrows. He’s a homegrown Minnesota boy with a vision for those sourcils, if you will. Click on the gorgeous before and afters to see his amazing work.-xoxo
We all love Michelle Williams. She’s adorable, has fantastic style, and isn’t afraid to play with her hair. She’s been sporting the short ‘do for awhile and says it’s because the only man who ever liked her hair short was Heath. Aww, RIP Mr. Ledger. Recently, she’s working a toned down version of the shaved head look that we can’t get enough of in the salon. Feeling daring this season? I know Kristen and Natalie are! They’ve got their buzzers at the ready for you.-xoxo
After a season of heavy fabrics, layers, and boots, it’s time to lighten up! Lucite accessories are very fun this season, with designers Gucci, Chanel, Givenchy, and more jumping onto the look. Here are some of my faves.
