The Story.

Gem owner and veteran hair stylist Molly Black became the new owner of FiveTwoSix Salon in 2015 and gave the salon a fresh look and feel by renovating and rebranding to what is now known as Gem Salon + Spa. The salon got it’s name from being located in a gem of a neighborhood, tucked back in a historic Saint Paul building.
