“Walking into the Metropolitan, I was immediately struck by the cozy, warm and inviting atmosphere. In my first facial and skin care analysis with Suzanne, I was blown away by her vast knowledge and expertise. She has spent her entire career studying skin, and it shows. Suzanne’s voice and mannerisms are so genuine and comforting. I was instantly put at ease. She used a glycolic peel on my face that left my skin feeling dewy and glowing. During my facial, as I relaxed under a luxuriously thick blanket, Suzanne made the intuitive comment that I hold a lot of stress in my shoulders. She immediately zoned in on that stress, massaging my arms and shoulders as the facial peel worked its magic. I left the Metropolitan feeling more relaxed than I have in years. I can only compare my facial to the feeling of eating the most decadent dessert ever made…but with none of the calories! It was delicious! I can’t praise Suzanne, Ryan and Gail enough. They offered insights, not just for my skin, but for my whole being. There is no other place like the Metropolitan in the Twin Cities.” Cheryl Kaye, Morning Radio Personality, The Kevin and Cheryl Show on 102.9 Lite FM
“The Metropolitan, what a find! After years of torturing my skin in the sun, it finally took its toll. After my first laser skin rejuvenation and laser skin resurfacing treatments, healing had begun! I didn’t realize how the sun had damaged and aged my skin. I always thought a great tan looked healthy and never realized just how unhealthy it really was. After years of yoga and taking care of my physical being, it is nice to now be taking care of what is certainly the first thing people notice, my skin. The entire process has been wonderful! All of the staff truly cares about my well-being. From the moment I walked in, I felt welcomed and in very good hands. Since I have started my healing process, many people have commented and asked what I have been doing to look so good. I am still wondering what they used to think! They all say that not only do I look 10 years younger, but I look so much healthier! I would highly recommend the Metropolitan and its wonderful facility and staff.” Daren J.
“My Metropolitan experience was delightfully energizing, calming, and motivating, all at one time! It is rare these days to truly experience the degree of customer service that they provide from the minute you enter the door. You are wrapped in a warm feeling from everyone that they genuinely care in your ability to not only look better, but to feel better about being YOU! At no time is there an uncomfortable sense of being pressured or judged. I was not just another client. There is a keen sense that their main interest was in leading me on my journey in whatever path I was comfortable with, all the while, gently holding my hand and offering options and their expert advice. I am looking forward to my next visit. It’s time I placed myself on the list of those to be taken care of!” Diane V.
“Metropolitan refined décor distinctly sets the tone for the treat that awaits you, from its genuinely gracious front desk to the professionals behind the scenes. I had the pleasure of having Gail work her magic with Botox on my time worn forehead and brow. I love Erin at the salon at the Metropolitan. She is a truly amazing hairstylist! The Metropolitan has set itself apart by elevating the status quo!” Suzanne B.
“From the ages of 13 to 21, I have had terrible acne. I have tried every wash, medication and treatment known to man to try and clear it up. Nothing has made my skin as clear as the work Suzanne has done with Metropolitan’s Laser Acne Treatment. Suzanne St. James is a master of skin care! I have never been happier with my appearance!” Ben P.
“From the time you walk into the Metropolitan until the time you leave, you are treated as though you are the most important client they have. The ambiance is phenomenal! I have personally been a client of Suzanne St. James for more than 10 years. I am so excited that she has been able to continue to bring her talent and personal warmth into a larger setting. The salon at the Metropolitan, did a wonderful job on my hair color, including the foiled highlights. Everyone was sincere about making sure I was happy with both the cut and the color. I would highly recommend coming to “The M on France” to have all your anti-aging, beauty and wellness needs taken care of!” Terri P.
“It has been awhile since I had a skin care and beauty expert that I really connected with. At other salons, I was having my services done by whomever was available. Suzanne at the Metropolitan changed that. She is an expert in her field. I really appreciated her taking the time to talk to me about my skin, skin care regime and to explain the services I was receiving. The real impact though, is that she is incredibly warm and she made me feel like a valued guest. If you happen to be looking for a personal stylist in Minneapolis or Edina who is as thoughtful as she is talented, then you must visit Erin Morningstar at the Metropolitan. She is very consultative during appointments and can always deliver beautiful results! Erin is flexible and takes pride in her work. I can always count on her for a good chat and a GREAT style!” Ashley H.
“My chiropractic experience with Dr. James began with an emergency visit for a very painful back injury. I am happy to say that after seeing Dr. James, I experienced great relief. The following visits continued the healing. The thing I found most comforting, other than the healing, was the time Dr. James took to listen to what I was experiencing. He then presented an in-depth explanation of the condition and chiropractic care. I really appreciated that. Thank you Dr. James.” Michael L.
“My experiences at the Metropolitan hair salon have been great! Everyone is so helpful, pleasant and knowledgeable. Ryan has been particularly helpful. I was in need of a new hairstyle that was stylish. Ryan listened to me, asked questions and truly listened to my answers. He then matched me with Erin. My new hairstyle is just what I wanted, and Erin did a fabulous job! I haven’t had such an easy transition to a new style in a very long time. It was truly a pleasure! I have recommended the Metropolitan to many friends due to the superior experience I always receive there.” Tami H.
“The Metropolitan experience is like no other spa or salon that I have ever been to. I appreciated their attention to detail and concern with achieving the results I wanted. I left feeling confident in my new hairstyle. Erin Morningstar is an amazing hairstylist! Now that I am part of the Metropolitan family, I am excited to return and see what else they have to offer!” Lindsey H.
“My experiences at the Metropolitan in Edina have been exceptional! The staff is warm and friendly, and the décor is elegant. I’ve had permanent cosmetics done by Suzanne St. James on both my eyebrows and eyeliner. They look beautiful! I’ve just started Latisse, and I cannot wait to see the results on my eyelashes! Above all, my skin is doing great! I never had acne when I was younger, however, once I hit my mid 40’s, I started to have acne problems. I am happy to say that after skin care treatments and chemical peels with Suzanne, and after the skincare education she has provided me along the way, it is under control and I feel beautiful! There are so many more things at the Metropolitan that I haven’t tried yet, but I will and I can’t wait!!!” Candace M.
“I first came in for a consultation on laser procedures for my acne scars. I was shown before and after pictures in order to see the incredible results the Metropolitan has had with previous clients. The laser skin treatment procedure was explained to me in detail so that I was comfortable moving forward. When I arrived for my first appointment, I was a little nervous, but the staff at the Metropolitan eased my fears and made me feel so comfortable from the minute I walked through the door! The procedure and my healing time were fast and amazing. At 56 years of age, I am really thankful that I was able to have my skin resurfaced. My skin looks amazing, and I feel incredible! Thank you Suzanne, Ryan, and Nate!” Kay M.

After my hair color and haircut, my hair feels so smooth and looks so shiny. I love it! Thanks to the staff of the Metropolitan hair salon!” Jill F.
“After having a ‘not so great’ waxing experience at another establishment, I was nervous about trying it again. Then I met Suzanne. Immediately upon meeting her, I felt as though we had known each other a long time. I told her about my previous waxing experience, and she listened to my concerns. She was so professional and made me feel very comfortable. I really hope other people come and experience the Metropolitan as I have! The Metropolitan is warm and inviting, and I feel great from the moment I am greeted at the door!” Dona D.

“The first thing you will notice when you walk into the Metropolitan is the beautiful décor and you immediately realize you have walked into a very special place. The next thing that strikes you is the incredible staff! They are extremely friendly and professional. I started seeing Suzanne St. James to have her correct the permanent cosmetics I had done by someone else many years ago. Suzanne was wonderful! There was no discomfort or downtime and I have received so many compliments since. I also went to the Metropolitan for Botox injections to help with my migraine headaches. The relief I got was amazing!” Petra A.
“The Metropolitan is a rare combination of a beautiful location with an amazing talented staff. It is very relaxing and comfortable. The staff is so talented, caring and fun-loving. I feel great every time I am there and even better when I walk out! I can’t think of the last time I had such a great experience getting my hair done! Lola has cut and colored my hair and I love it! She is so talented and she really listens to you. I feel like she knows exactly what is in my mind for what I want done to my hair and then she makes it happen! I get compliments on my hair every day. I have skin treatments and chemical peels done with Suzanne and what a different that has made to my skin! Suzanne is a master of skin care. What I think is so great about Suzanne is that she customized everything just for you based on your needs and your lifestyle. I look forward to each and every treatment I have with her and I feel younger every time! I would recommend the Metropolitan to anyone!” Bridget O.
“I love my haircut by Erin Morningstar! This is the BEST haircut I have ever received! I am truly hair challenged with fine hair, but Erin knew exactly what to do with it! She listened to my concerns and gave me great advice on a haircut, styling tips and products that all work with my fine hair. The Metropolitan space is beautiful and posh, yet comfortable and relaxing. To me, one of the most important factors are the people, whether it’s a personal or professional relationship. Professionally, are they good at what they do? Personally and professionally, are they fun to be around and can I trust them? The staff at the Metropolitan are aces on all accounts!” Sheila A.
“The Metropolitan is the most elegant anti-aging, beauty and wellness clinic in town! They have the most talented and personable staff. Suzanne, who does the permanent make-up, skin care, microdermabrasion and chemical peels and Jayne, who does make-up applications and haircuts and hair color are truly amazing! Lucky me!” Harriet L.
“From the front desk to my haircut and color and my skin care and permanent cosmetics with Suzanne, the Metropolitan is a first-class, professional and knowledgeable establishment which I highly recommend!” Lisa Q.
