South Minneapolis is the home to HAUS Salon, a new endeavor by industry experts Charlie Brackney and Jessica Reipke. After acting as creative director for world-renowned Juut Salonspa for several years and as a member of the exclusive style team of legendary hairstylist Vivienne Mackinder, Brackney is now launching a series of "collections" of inspirational haircuts and colors that are on-trend and forward-thinking, with a new collection to drop every six months. The first collection, "Muse," is named for "the people who inspire us most: our clients," Brackney says.

The "Camella" is "all about texture. The curl of this season is soft and brushed out. Stiff, beachy waves have been replaced by soft, brushed-out waves, accentuated with this season’s hottest hair color: ombre."
