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.

Kai Minneapolis officially opened its doors a year ago and since then we have grown as a salon, as a team, as friends, as professionals and as a neighborhood. We are a tight-knit group of gals who adore working at Kai, and love being a part of the Northloop community. Here are some words from inside Kai…

I feel very fortunate to work with people who not only care about what they do but also each other. -Tasha

I get to be and feel myself working at Kai! -Nath

It’s so awesome to be apart of the first team at Kai MPLS and to be able to see everything from day one! -Caitlin

It’s been a great neighborhood to work in! -Hannah

Kai is an environment that values growth, family, education and giving back to the world. -Sada

I’m happy to work for a company that cares about my well being… paid vacation, health care and incentives. I love working with a team that is willing to help each other out even if it’s their only break of the day. It definitely shows when you come to Kai. -Haley

When I look around I often think, “Is this real life, because I am absolutely living my dream.” It’s a good feeling. -Nikki

Yes it’s all a little sappy but nostalgia usually is, eh. So as we close down this very special #TBT we definitely want to thank all of our clients for being so awesome… for loving our space just as much as we do, for referring your friends and family and for supporting our growth. Can’t wait to see what Timehop says next year and the next year and the next year …

Kai Minneapolis, then and now #TBT …
