Our mission is to create a unique environment where there is a connection between artistry, beauty and humanity. We strive for individuality and creativity in our work, and let everyday influences inspire us. We are a haven for learning and teaching, not only ourselves, but our guests and community.


Established in 2008, Kai’s first salon opened in Champlin. The salon grew to include a full spa in 2011. Kai was honored as a Top 200 Salon in the US by Salon Today in 2014 with awards in the categories of growth, retention and referral programs.

A well known, premier provider of hair, skin, nail and spa services in the northern suburbs, Kai continues to grow. In line with Kai’s mission, we are dedicated to giving back to the local community and beyond. Kai is an Aveda concept salon, using Aveda products in all of our services and offering the complete product line for retail.

Giving Back

As part of our mission, giving back is very important to us. We have selected organizations to support that are very near and dear to our hearts.

The Smile Network

Smile Network International is a non-profit humanitarian organization, which provides life-altering surgeries and related health care services to impoverished children and adults in developing nations. In the space of 45 minutes and for just $500, a life is changed with dignity and hope restored.

Kai owners, Laura & Adam Pardo, do regular mission trips with the Smile Network.

The Miracles of Mitch Foundation

The Miracles of Mitch Foundation eases the financial and emotional impacts experienced by families during a very challenging time.
