Fox Den Salon
We’re Finalists!


Have you heard the news?!

We have worked hard, and are one of only 4 finalists in what could be a life-changing opportunity for our salon and our community!

Cory Hepola with WCCO has partnered with Starkey Hearing & Media Minefield in the first ever “Hey We’re Building A Brand”. The contest is all about small businesses in the Minneapolis & St. Paul area who want to build or rebuild their brand during these challenging times. With the grand prize being a $5,000 grant from Starkey Hearing, an exclusive advertising schedule with 830 WCCO Radio, and a six months of consulting services for your small business from Media Minefield. How could we pass up on such awesomeness?!?! 

I guess they agreed that we, too, were awesome, and have selected us from a pool of countless other influential small businesses!

This is our chance to tell our story, strengthen and refine our mission, and to help spread the word about the need for accessible and welcoming spaces for people of all walks of life, abilities, and presentations, especially in the self-care portion of the service industry.  Even if we don’t win, the chance to learn, grow, and share is one that we won’t soon forget, and are extremely grateful and humbled to be selected.


Helping rebuild the Twin Cities through small business, Cory Hepola teams
with Business Experts to discover, analyze, and encourage entrepreneurs in
need of help, culminating with a winner earning a cash prize and a marketing

We’re so excited to get insights and inspiration form Starkey Hearing President Brandon Sawalich and Media Minefield Founder/CEO Kristi Piehl.   During each conversation about small business they will be discussing leadership, knowing your strengths, company culture, improving your social media and website and much more!

Perham, Minnesota native Cory Hepola talks about the thing you’re talking about around your dinner table.  The latest in social media, student loans, the changing face of health concerns, what’s cool for cord cutters to watch.  Radio with a purpose is important to Cory so if you’ve ever found yourself longing for a radio show that’ll make you feel GOOD, this is the one.

Cory Hepola is the Host of “Hey It’s Cory Hepola” from 9-Noon on iconic WCCO Radio in Minneapolis where he’s been named “100 People To Know in 2020” for his leadership and creativity by “Twin Cities Business.”

Before his transition to radio, Cory won two Emmy-Awards for Outstanding TV Anchor while at KARE 11 (2016 & 2018) and has been called a “Game Changer” in local media, landing on the cover of “Twin Cities Business” magazine in 2017.

Cory is also an Inspirational Speaker, sharing his message “Leave Fear Behind, Realize Your Potential” where he lays out four qualities we all need to identify: our core values, strengths, weaknesses, and a larger purpose, while hitting on themes of faith, transparency, perseverance, and overcoming our fears.

It is with great respect and humility that we acknowledge that we gather and create on the traditional land of the Dakota people and the many other tribes that have stewarded it for generations.  This beautiful and often complicated city has been the ancestral home to the Dakota people, as well as a home to the Ojibwe (Anishinaabeg), Ho-Chunk, Cheyenne, Oto, Iowa, Sauk and Meskwaki people over generations.  The continual strategic disenfranchisement of the colonial settlers on the native peoples of this land have diminished but not deterred the capacity for acknowledgement of the many gifts, strengths, voices, and achievements of the indigenous people that have come before, as well as  those that remain in our communities.
