"There is pure magic in the moment people feel transformed. I strive to create that feeling for every one of our clients at HAUS."
Hairstylist Charlie Brackney is the Co-Founder and Creative Director for award-winning HAUS Salon and Blowdry! Blowdry Bar in Minneapolis. Charlie’s vivid personality is well-known, and that personality paired with his talent for hair have resulted in an instant connection with his clients at HAUS Salon.
As the Twin Cities’ go-to guy for great hair, Charlie and his work have been featured in the Star Tribune, Pioneer Press, MplsStPaul Magazine, Minnesota Monthly, City Pages, Modern Salon, Beauty Launchpad, American Salon, Salon Today and more.
Charlie’s dedication to fashion and trend is evident in all that he does. If there’s a fabulous fashion show in the Twin Cities, it’s very likely you’ll find Charlie and his team backstage styling hair. He has styled hair for New York Fashion Week and follows fashion trend closely to draw inspiration for what’s next in hair. Charlie’s knack for trend and fashion often results in Twin Cities magazines, newspapers, television and radio seeking his opinions, including a regular segment as the Fashion Expert on the Cities 97 morning show with Brian Oake and Keri Noble.
His salons and team of artists have been honored with local and national “best of” awards and nominations since the opening of their first salon in 2011.
