Amanda Bush, Owner

Amanda has been in the business since 2001. After doing national education for Aveda, Italian Vogue, NY Fashion Week, and Aveda hairshows, she decided to start her own salon to pass on the opportunity to motivated hairstylists. Men's haircutting, precision haircutting, photoshoots, and styling are her true passion. "My favorite part of the industry is that I can never get bored. There's always business, creativity, and quality to be learned." 


We've served thousands of happy customers.

"The people at Allen Ray are outstanding and the finished product is fantastic!

"I'm extremely particular when it comes to getting my haircut. I figured I'd try somewhere new and saw the Allen Ray salon reviews online and thought it must be fairly good. I was impressed with the professionalism, experience and of course the outcome. Really great cut - I'd absolutely recommend Solest!"

You get great conversation (like talking to a friend), relaxing environment with a head and face massage, and good music. She will make you look the best you can look! Hands down, the best men's haircut in downtown Minneapolis."
