At Metropolis Salon, the beauty experts tap into their extensive training to beautify guests with hair, makeup, and nail services. Owner Mark Melter, 1 of only 10 board-certified master colorists in Minnesota, has spent 30 years of his life doing nothing to hair apart from coloring it—not cutting it, not putting it in an updo, and not even sculpting it into the shape of famous statues. This specialization ensures that he can create the perfect shade for full colors or highlights.
Most of the stylists who work alongside Mark also have extensive industry experience; they have worked as TV hair stylists and abroad, and many have worked with hair for more than 20 years. At the salon, they create stylish cuts, blow out locks, and craft updos for special occasions.
Resident makeup artist Marni Force and nail artist Mary Roach can also make clients pretty for special events by applying Julie Martin makeup or shellac nail polish.
