WOW! What a whirlwind! Things have been changing quickly, but I still believe it's an exciting time with lots of transitions and yet a restful period. 


My original plan was to keep the downtown salon and just move it to another location as our lease was expiring.  I made a tough decision, however, to merge the Downtown salon in to the James Irving Uptown location. With high construction costs, gut feelings, wanting to create a stronger brand, and being able to focus my time, I felt it was the best decision for the business. This was all before Covid-19 put a damper on all of our plans in 2020 and after the Coronavirus created more uncertainty, I'm relieved to say that this was the right call and I'm grateful for that. 

So - what these means for you! First, we appreciate your business immensely (now more than ever!) and we know this disrupts your routine and we hope you'll continue to follow us. Our new venture will begin in Uptown as soon as we get the green light from the Board of Cosmetology. As of today, that will be Saturday, May 2nd. We have an incredible team at James Irving that you will get to meet soon - and they're excited to meet you too! 

In the meantime, here are a few ways to help:

We think the James Irving location is pretty slick and hope you do too! 

Directions from the West:

You can come down Highway 7, pass Bde Maka Ska (Lake Calhoun) on Lake Street, we're down a few streets between James & Irving, 2 doors down from Barbette. 

From Uptown:

Turn on Lagoon (a one way), take a left on Irving, take a right in to our parking lot or park on the street. 

1608 W Lake Street, 55408


There's free parking behind the building, free parking on James or Irving, or metered parking on Lake Street.

Call 612.208.0273 

We know these changes impact all of you and we appreciate your support and excitement as we announce these new changes. I'm so grateful you've been a part of this journey and we hope to continue it, just in a different location. 

Thank you again for all of your support, I will work tirelessly to continue to service our wonderful clients.
