how we became KIND...

Once upon a time there were two cosmetologists who worked in a town full of salons. These two cosmetologists had worked in the industry for many years, and have combined over twenty years styling stunning updos, producing perfect foils, and assisting anything the clients desired. But there was one thing wrong, no matter how happy they made their clients they could not help but cringe when they washed chemicals down the drain, or sent their happy clients out the door with a bottle of poison.

This is where things needed to change, and all of the sudden the idea of be KIND salon & spa was born. They decided that being kind to yourself and the earth don't have to be separate, and in fact can be quite easy. These two cosmetologists combined their powers and industry knowledge to search out the best brands and products that are organic, natural, cruelty free, and responsible.

So, who are these two cosmetologists. Well that is quite simple, they are mother and son team Carol Fackler and Alan Fackler.

Carol has been operating in the industry for many years, and has had the experience to educate, donate her time, and help others with their hair and skin needs. Carol has also worked in the bridal industry for years, and specializes in organic updos, organic facials, and natural hair foiling.

Alan on the other hand is an Aveda Institute graduate, and has had the opportunity to manage salons, regionally educate, and perform both hair and skin services. Alan also is a regional educator for Neuma, and prides himself on product knowledge, customer service, and quality hair. His main specialties are blonde hair, natural hair foiling, and hair cutting.

These two know that be KIND salon & spa was made because the desire to create a feel good salon and spa that treats the earth with respect. This has created a place where you can feel good about yourself and pass it on to others. be KIND salon & spa is happy to be the first environmentally responsible, natural salon & spa servicing White Bear Lake, Oakdale, Mahtomedi, and the north metro. 

So, come to a truly unique space for all to enjoy.
