One Year at Kai Salon Minneapolis #TBT

Often when we look ahead on a year we think, “A whole year, plenty of time…” and then we blink and somehow Timehop is telling us a year has passed us by, and we’re like, “Where did that go?”

As a search for our second location we wanted something that was in the middle of what’s happening in the city. This space in particular happened to find us. We knew the moment we walked in “this was it”. The salon seemed to grow around the beautiful existing architecture. Although it wasn’t without its challenges being a historic building, it all came together to make a space that is very comfortable and fits with the North Loop.

Protect What You Love

Two people sat down in the 1970’s and had a real talk about environmental issues, they brought to light Earth Day and from that has expanded what we now know as Earth Month. Earth Month happens every April and is dedicated to raise environmental awareness for the planet we love. Since 1999, Aveda has raised over $30 million to help support non-profit Earth Month partners, with a large portion of that going towards clean water projects.

A Northloop Gem

The Northloop just hit Thrillists top 12 coolest neighborhoods in the country and I’m totally not surprised. The Northloop is a vision of the arts and is home to Minneapolis’ best businesses (there is no bias in that statement btw). Although the Northloop is just now getting major attention there is one business I want to highlight as they knew cool, before cool was cool.
