Award-Winning HAUS Salon to Open a Third Salon and Spa in Northeast Minneapolis this Spring

Construction is underway on a new HAUS Salon location in Northeast Minneapolis with an expected opening date in Spring 2019. This new 4,000 square foot salon and spa is the third HAUS Salon for award-winning duo Charlie Brackney and Jessica Reipke, who also own and operate HAUS Salon locations in South Minneapolis and in the North Loop neighborhood of Minneapolis. They’ve partnered once again with Jonathan Gomez Whitney to design the salon located at 309 First Avenue NE on the main floor of NordHaus, a luxury mixed-use apartment community. The space offers a modern industrial aesthetic, incorporating iron, wood, stone, and greenery in a space with lofty ceilings and ample natural light.

Growth at HAUS Salon has been organic. The company started by offering only hair services with just eight chairs in January of 2011 at their flagship salon on Nicollet in South Minneapolis. In a few short years, they outgrew their space and opened a second, larger location in 2014 that included a spa in the North Loop neighborhood of downtown Minneapolis. They’ve since remodeled both locations to accommodate for their increasing clientele and 70+ employees. “We had no grand plans to grow our company at this rate. It’s happened organically while we were focused on building a team of talented artists and giving the best possible service,” said Jessica Reipke, co-founder and Salon Director of HAUS Salon. “If we were going to grow, it had to be in the right way, at the right time, in the right space. And it has become vividly clear to us in the past few months that we simply must expand.”

“It’s a beautiful new space in one of our favorite neighborhoods in Minneapolis”

“Our company’s vibe is and always has been urban. It might seem ambitious to have three salons all within the City of Minneapolis, but we’ve chosen three distinctly different neighborhoods, and it’s truly the right fit for our brand and our clientele,” said Charlie Brackney, co-founder and Creative Director of HAUS Salon. This love of all things Minneapolis brought HAUS Salon to the popular Northeast Minneapolis neighborhood. The NordHaus community at First and University near Surdyk’s, approached Charlie and Jessica about considering their ground-level retail space. “It’s a beautiful new space in one of our favorite neighborhoods in Minneapolis,” said Brackney.

HAUS Salon Northeast will initially feature HAUS artists transferring from both locations to allow more new clientele to experience all that HAUS has to offer the people of the Twin Cities. Services offered will include haircuts, color services, and hair extensions plus a spa with facials, body waxing, and brow services including waxing, threading and microblading. HAUS Salon offers convenient online scheduling and shopping, featuring carefully curated beauty and wellness essentials in their online shop, shopHAUS.


The first HAUS Salon opened eight years ago in January 2011 at 42nd and Nicollet in South Minneapolis. Their second HAUS Salon location opened in October 2014 at 7th and Washington in the North Loop. Guests receive world-class haircuts, color, waxing and facials from some of the most talented and expertly trained artists in the Twin Cities.
