Des Moines Student Salon


Aveda is an industry trendsetter in the arts of hair styling and coloring, makeup, skincare and spa services. We are a professional brand of plant-based products. Our widely recognized Aveda network is currently comprised of over 6,500 professional hair salons and spas in 20 countries worldwide.

The Aveda Institute Des Moines is a great place for you to explore and experiment with the latest trends in skincare and hair artistry, design and techniques. Services are provided by future professionals under the direct supervision of licensed educators. Enjoy soothing services at relaxed prices.


Please understand that since we are an educational facility, the following apply:

  • Services will take longer than at a salon. Our students are learning and want to make sure you receive your desired result.
  • Only guests having services are allowed on our clinic floor (including children).
  • We will do our best to accommodate guests arriving late for their services. If a guest is more than 15 minutes late, the service may need to be rescheduled.


Your satisfaction is our goal! If you’re not happy with your service, please contact us within 72 hours to schedule another appointment.

All services are performed by students under the direct supervision of licensed educators
