I have been to Anani for my prenatal massages and loved it .They were friendly, accommodating, and the service was excellent. Thus, I decided to go for a haircut yesterday, figuring the service would be just as outstanding. Unfortunately, I was wrong. When I first checked in, I was asked if I wanted anything to drink and I asked for water and they said they would get it right to me. The water never showed up. Then I met my stylist, who was very nice, and showed her a pic of exactly what I wanted - just a nice trim with a bell shaped bottom and layers. She said that it would mean not taking a ton of length off my hair and showed me about an inch. I agreed that's what I wanted - didn't want the edges of the bell any shorter than below my shoulder. She agreed. She started with a scalp massage which was basically just her acting like she was shampooing my hair - there was no massage to it, sadly, as that was something I had been looking forward to. When the haircut started I couldn't really see what she was doing and she wasn't checking in with me on the length. I started seeing very long pieces on the floor and asked her what she was doing. She said she was cutting the length and thinning it. I started getting nervous then as she hadn't mentioned anything about thinning it and my hair is fine so I like to keep my hair thick. By the middle of the haircut, I got so nervous I asked to see how long it was in the back. She pulled it forward and the whole length barely covered my shoulders. I almost threw up and told her it was shorter than I had wanted and not to do anything else to it. Ultimately the haircut looks terrible and I'm very sad as the cut I had wanted would have looked beautiful and I had grown my hair out specifically for it. There is no bell shape to the bottom and the length is horrible. Being a girl used to longer hair, I feel like I've been scalped. It will definitely take a while to get used to this "new normal". It's even hard to get a nice ponytail out of it. I don't have any hard feelings against the stylist, just extremely disappointed that what was supposed to be a luxury few hours as a new mom turned into a nightmare. I wish she had checked and made sure every step was what I had wanted and double checked the picture. Definitely not going back for a haircut again.

My stylist Kat does an amazing job with my hair - cut, color and style. She always gives me great advice on what products to use and tips to help me style my hair on my own. The best Salon experience and stylist in Ankeny by far!

Moe Brant

I recently had a pedicure and shellac manicure by Carmin and it was wonderful! She was friendly, outgoing and my nails look amazing! Highly recommend Carmin and Anani!

Aesthetically pleasing, manager and receptionists service was great. Bad hair service by a less experienced stylist but more than willing to make things right.

Had the best experience here. Everyone was so nice. The music was soothing, massage was great, facial absolutly amazing, manicure and pedicure was excellent, my hair and make-up turned out perfect. I had bought 2 awaken packages for my mother and I and we were so pleased with our experience. My only complaint was we had to eat our spa lunch in the waiting area up front. BUt the food was very good! If someone is looking for a soothing and relaxing experince, this is the place to go!

I have been going to Anani exclusively for the past 6yrs. The one on one attention, fabulous hair results & warm towels keep me coming back!

All receptionist apparently was sick at the time, just two stylist with no other customers. I couldn’t get any of my questions answered and kept on pushing me to come back or they would call me with the answers. Going through all that I decided to get a gift card anyway, but neither one knew how or I felt didn’t want to write one up. Not exactly what I was looking for with such a highly rated salon.

Cindy Lynch

I had a spafinder gift card for $100 and walked in for an appointment. Showed them the gift card and they said they accepted this gift card there. After my overpriced color and cut, they couldn't or didn't know how to run the gift card for payment. They let me leave and said they would call spafinder to work it out with them. They later called me demanding me to give them another form of payment or they would report it to the authorities. Besides this hassle my my overall hair color with highlights I had an appt. for $180 wasn't what I got. They said they didn't have time for that. They could do the color and cut. They did a "root touch up" and not overall color. Said they would blend some of the top hair color "root touchup" into my lengths of long hair. She only took 2 Strands of long hair squeezed color into them for the blending into the lengths and that was it. When I got home and evaluated my hair. The color on top was brassy kinda orange looking and looking under the top layer there was still gray about three different colors, in a horizontal pattern. It still looked like gray roots growing out. The hair cut was noticeably uneven on the right side. The length was not the same on each side about an inch difference. She didn't do anything with layering my bangs. Got a call from them informing me that they don't accept that $100 giftcard I had, and need to pay for their services. I complained about the misinformation telling me they would take the $100 giftcard before I had their services, and now they won't, after the fact, I would have to pay out of my own pocket a bill of $140 for the uneven haircut and color, she said they would fix my hair. Make another appt. Which I did and she fixed the hair cut to my satisfaction. When i asked if she was going to redo my color the hairdresser said she didn't have time and a color fix had not been authorized, would have to speak with the manager again. At this point I just paid the bill. I was tired of haggling with them. It wasnt worth all the hassle or my dignity to ask them to fix my color too again. Initiately They offered me another complimentry glass of wine when I had complained about them not accepting the gift card after they told me they would. The free glass of wine was the best part of my experience there. A free glass of wine while they did your color. "Sa la'Vee ee!!

Mona Bond

One of top 3 salons in Ankeny. Highly recommend.

Austin Jones

Extremely disappointed with my experience at this salon. I just moved to town and previously got my hair done by the same person every time so I was nervous to try somewhere new. All I needed was a root touch up (which normally runs about $80 most places) but I thought I'd go somewhere a bit more pricey in hopes that they would do a good job. I have always had root touch ups done with foils so when the hairdresser asked if that's what I wanted, I said yes! Keep in mind I had made it very clear I wanted a ROOT TOUCH UP. When my hair was done I noticed that there was still very visible outgrowth but I was in a hurry and left. A couple of days later I tried to wear my hair up and it made the roots even more visable. The hair dresser had only hilighted the roots and they did not match the rest of my hair in the slightest. I payed $160 for a half ass root touch up and trim. When I called back to ask if they could fix the problem my hair dresser told me that she thought I wanted highlighted roots. NOT THE COLOR OF THE REST OF MY HAIR and if I wanted it "colored" (my hair is blonde) that I would have to pay for it. The fact that this circus hair costed me so much money was one thing, but they couldn't even fix it after the fact. very saddening.
