Hair Design

At Fantasia Salon, we love that we can help people feel good about themselves through so many areas of their life. We are excited about what the future holds for our business and the industry, and are so grateful for the amazing clients we have had over the years. Here’s to celebrating another 50 years!


Fantasia first opened their doors in 1962 in a little salon on West Broadway. The original name of the salon was “TwiEtta’s Beauty Nook”


Fantasia salon opened their Hair Restoration Center which offers thinning hair solutions to men, women and children with alopecia, trichotillomania, hormonal hair loss, or any other medical-related, or non-medially related hair loss. And all in the comfort of a private room.


Fantasia salon has a new training center and is excited to begin to offer educational classes to their employees on the, Fantasia Experience (the experience, starts with the welcome to delivering the service, to the client follow up), to educate students in Cosmetology schools, of what is offered at Fantasia for Hair Restoration, to train salons (outside of the 250 mile radius of Fantasia Hair Restoration location) on how to become a Hair Restoration Studio, and for Educational Events for our clients to come and learn about our services and how to use the products that Fantasia offers.  In 2017 Fantasia brought on the Aveda product line.  We are so excited for the opportunities this offers us and our customers.

Our Story

T he beauty industry has always been my passion. Even as a child, I would cut and set my cousin’s hair. I also loved makeup. I feel so fortunate to have been able to discover my passion so early in my life!

I am proud to say that I have been in the salon business since 1962. In that time I owned 3 salons before consolidating them and opening up our present day Fantasia, which is now a full-service salon offering hair restoration, hair design, nail care, skin care and laser therapy services.

It was in 1989 that Fantasia first began offering hair restoration services. Since then we have become well-known in the Twin Cities for our outstanding hair restoration capabilities. We are honored to serve women, men, and children suffering from hair loss/thinning hair who live in Minnesota as well as those who travel to visit us from many other states around the country!

I firmly believe in continuing education for both myself and my staff and make this a priority for every team member. It’s my heart’s desire to always have a one-of-a-kind team of compassionate, caring professionals at the salon in order to help meet any and all the needs of our clients. I truly believe that I have the best staff in the Twin Cities!

Today, I can honestly say that helping people with hair loss look and feel beautiful is the most rewarding thing I’ve done in Fantasia’s 50 plus years in business!
