About Spalon


There’s a reason why we named our company Spalon. It’s a brand that represents both what we offer and what we stand for – not a mere collection of services but an entire and unmatched rejuvenation experience. We weave spa and salon solutions into a soothing, seamless collection of moments that foster beauty, relaxation and exhilaration – inside and outside, for mind, body and soul.


Since 1991, Spalon has redefined the customer experience in our industry. At our three Twin Cities locations in Edina, Chanhassen and Woodbury, we offer exquisite spa packages led by professionals who are passionate about service and masters of their craft – whether it’s hair or nail styling, skin and body care, holistic retreats or even therapeutic solutions such as Hydrafacials and Microblading.


No matter your age, body type, gender or other orientation, we treat everyone the same, judgement free. Because we believe not only in providing service, but also in being servants – in helping and healing others by promoting physical and emotional harmony. We welcome individual guests or groups of up to 40, and promise a spa experience like no other at a surprisingly affordable price.


At Spalon, we want to help you feel great and look great, for life.


We are a highly motivated team of honest and innovative professionals dedicated to providing a personally rejuvenating experience, enriching each other and our guests.
