REVIEWS OF Salon Spa W IN Iowa

Mary DeBower

This salon is truly one of a kind! Every single part of my experience was wonderful from the moment I walked in the door and was asked if I would like a complimentary beverage to offering to put my coat on for me as I was leaving. I was able to get a cut and color last minute as they had a last minute opening. Kaitlyn started with my cut which is the best haircut I’ve ever had! My hair actually frames my face wonderfully and feels thick now! Ruby then followed with my color which I love! I have dark hair and she was able to put the prettiest balayage highlights throughout my hair. Renee washed and styled my hair and was so sweet to chat with and gave me the best style ever in a short amount of time (I was rushing her because I had a meeting right after). Renee provided express checkout so I checked out as I was styling and was out the door in time. Everyone here works as a team and is so talented. Thank you all for such a wonderful experience!

Hallie Hammer

Lauren takes such wonderful care of me. My hair has never looked healthier/happier. She makes me feel heard and always considers my long-term hair goals. I trust her completely and honestly have never been this happy with my hair cuts. She’s a gem and I love my time with her.

Amy LaCroix

Excellent salon. I have been a customer for 4 years and have referred my family/friends. Hair colorists and stylists are highly knowledgeable with incredible skill set and superb customer service. The attention to detail is most appreciated! It’s a great team and experience every time! Thank you.

Rebecca Hofmeister

Lauren is amazing! Best brow waxing experience ever! Love my haircut and style too!

Amanda Olberding

I always have the BEST experience with Anna at Salon Spa W! She goes out of her way to make me feel pampered and I always feel great about my hair cut and style. I have been going to the salon for the past 6 years and would hands down recommend it to anyone!

Roxanne Galkin

Lauren always does a great job with my cut and provides helpful consultation. 5 stars!

Sandra Lee

Thanks so much, Renee. Probably the best haircut I’ve had in a long time or from Salon W. Had such a love/hate relationship with my front fringe, but she definitely fixed what I hated about it! Also, love that you guys have added on an app! Love the option to book online so much, it’s very convenient.

Arnesa Buljusmic-Kustura

I always have the loveliest experience at this spa. All the workers are amazing, friendly, and truly take their time to listen to you and pamper you. Ruby does my colour and has always done a phenomenal job, made great conversation, and …

Jill Huygens

As always, it was exceptional! I love my nails, great color and a relaxing afternoon. I recommend Salon W to everyone! Zoey is a gem!!!!

Bri fit me in for a quick fix to a overly blonde highlight I had done out of state and she made my hair brilliant and beautiful again! Outstanding talent and sincere kindness!!! How lucky I am to have her on my ‘glam squad’!!!! I’m all …

Laurynn Mossman

Blakalee is so genuine and knowledgeable. She explains everything she is going to do to your hair throughout the entire process, which makes me feel at ease. She is easy to talk to and has great style! Lastly, I have never been happier with my hair coloring before, she goes above and beyond my expectations!

Joshua Peed

By far the greatest salon in Des Moines. Always a great experience, and always a perfect haircut. Couldn’t imagine going elsewhere.

Kayla Boal

I’ve been coming from Kansas City for over 3 years to have my hair colored by Avalon and cut by Mollie! Nothing beats the salon customer service or the cut/color I get here from those two! They do an amazing job, listen to what I like, and are consistent each time! I am very, very picky :) and they both do amazing!

Allice Reynolds

Best colorist ever! Always does a beautiful job! Makes me feel and look fabulous!

Elle Stackhouse

Love this salon! Such great customer service and care, and Jamie does such a wonderful job!

Sophie Darsy

Love, love, love this place! Corbin is an amazing hair stylist, and the staff makes feel pampered from the moment you step foot to the salon until the time you leave. My absolute favorite place to get my hair cut!

Brooke Richardson

MC is amazing! She completely saved my hair and was able to take all my desires and make it work for my hair type. Would recommend her to anyone!

caroline fitzgerald

I have NEVER been disappointed with my “team” at salon spa w. I have been a customer for almost 7 years- Blakelee and Katie Jo always make me Feel

Sherri Harder

Kaylynn is such a great stylist. She listens well and has really helped me understand what works and what doesn't with my hair. I highly recommend her as a stylist.

Elizabeth VanderSchel

Elle is extremely knowledgeable and personable. I would trust her with my hair any day! Only good things to say about her and I love my new cut.

Eliza D'Anieri

Always an amazing experience. MC is the most friendly and wonderful stylist, she always makes me feel welcome and is up for trying fun new ideas with me!! I recommend her and the salon to everyone!


I’ve been seeing Elle for over 10 years and I love my time with her. The cut and style is always on point, and you can’t beat the extra Aveda pampering — beverage, scalp/neck massage, hand dip, shampoo - always so relaxing.

Mary Young

Corbin did an excellent job on my hair and made it a wonderful way to start off my day. She is such an incredible person besides being a beyond talented stylist. Salon Spa W is the best!

Maryjo Staniger

Awesome!!! Anna makes me feel so beautiful and takes her time while cutting my hair. When I was little, people in her profession were referred to as “beauty operators” ... Anna is the reason why!

Meg Whitty

Corbin was awesome! Great curly cut - did exactly what I asked. I have very curly hair and have had a number of bad haircuts - such a relief to find someone who knows how to cut curls.

Diane Polley

I was in town for class reunion and wanted a last minute wash and style. The salon was wonderful : very classy. Enjoyed the 1st class greeting. Then I was offered a glass of wine, shoulder and scalp massage and paraffin. What a great treat. Additionally, Michaela was a real delight. She listened and was so nice. Very liked the way she styled my hair. If I lived here, I would be a regular. Thanks!

Barbara Heil

My colorist and stylist are great! I arrived the first time need an emergency color correction! They listened and did a wonderful job of “fixing” my hair. And I’ve been going back ever since! The only drawback is parking. That is the only reason for the 4 star instead of 5 star rating.

Jessica Goode

I love Salon Spa W! I have been going here for a year, and Blakelee has done an amazing job with my hair. She always listens to exactly what I want and my hair has become so much healthier than when I started. I love the experience I get when I come here and always feel taken care of! Such a great atmosphere and everyone is so friendly!


My first experience was above my expectations. She explained everything and taught me alot on how to manage my curls. I would highly recommend her.

Elizabeth Condit

I absolutely loved the service that I received at Salon Spa W! I was in great hands with Blakelee handling my color transition from some blonde highlights that had been allowed to grow out for a year to a brunette with subtle highlights/lighter tones mixed in to keep my color warm! I appreciated her taking the time to discuss my wants, providing me with options/examples, spelling out the process, and really just listening to what I was hoping to achieve. My color is FANTASTIC! I will definitely be back! I also appreciated the care and attentiveness that Bailey put into handling my trim and touching up my brows (after I asked) before I left!

Kenzie Bierl

The salon should be somewhere where you can relax and feel good about yourself and that’s the experience I got! Love love LOVE my nails. Karli also sold me on 2 cute lipsticks! Will definitely be back.

Mikel Niebuhr

Avalon does such a wonderful job! My color is so multidimensional and so well blended! She knows what will look great with little direction from me. I always look forward to my appointment with her. She makes it a great experience and always exceeds my expectations!

Kellie McGriff

Katie is amazing! This is the one day every 12 weeks that revives my hair and my well-being.

Evy Santiago

Carin was amazing! She asked many questions and made sure I knew exactly what she was doing. I love the results and I'm looking forward to future visits. Thank you Carin!

Chelsea Smith

Loved my haircut and styling by Mc! She is awesome! Definitely worth the price. Equally loved my color from Emily. Won’t go to anyone else! These ladies are top notch! Exceptional experience!!

Deb Day

So much FUN! Excellent pedicure! Thank you Zoe!

Shoe Kortenkamp

The service was amazing from the moment I entered the door! Could not believe the beyond professionalism that everyone exhibited! Special shout out to Amber for rocking it! Cant wait to come back!

Emily N

Super friendly staff, nice environment. Did a great job on haircut and will be returning!

Abby Strong

MC is so wonderful to work with!!! Very knowledgeable and makes taming my hair seem like an easy task!! I’ve loved all the products and treatments she has recommended. She is a winner and so is Salon Spa W!

Nancy Anne Gutcher

The whole experience was wonderful. I have the best haircut and haircolor I have ever had. I loved all the free amenities too. The wine the snacks and hand paraffin. All the staff were wonderful and the atmosphere was really enjoyable also.

Ashley Bahr

So sad that this was my last cut with MC! I'm moving, but if I could take her and Carin with me, I totally would. They make me feel so comfortable and pampered, and I'm sure every customer says this about them but I feel like they're my girlfriends even though I only see them every 5 weeks. My hair has been in the best shape of my life these past couple years. It's so hard to leave!! Thank you both for taking such excellent care of me and my hair.

Shari Ballinger

Bri has done amazing things with my hair! She has completely transformed it from dry color challenged hair to hair I get compliments on weekly. Absolutely amazing colorist! Thanks Bri! -Shari Ballinger

Kendra Parker

Blakelee always knows exactly what I’m looking for. Excellent service and fantastic conversation!!

Mariah Jarosh

Lauren always does a great job with my hair and is very personable! Enjoy my “me” time when I come to the salon, everyone is great from check in to check out!

Anne Winslow-Cook

I’ve gone to a lot of cheaper stylists and salons, but Salon Spa W’s stylists and colorists always get my hair right. I have naturally curly red hair, which is not easy to color to look natural. Other colorists from other salons have made my hair purple, brown and blonde. Other stylists have cut my curls so that they fall unevenly. But now that I’ve found Salon Spa W, I will not go elsewhere. I get so many compliments on my hair, and I attribute that to great color and great cuts!

Jacey Smith

Wonderful experience. She was honest with her thoughts on what to do, didn’t push anything and made me laugh. I really enjoyed my time!

Jennifer Fox

Amber does an amazing job with color! She listens intently to what I want and creates it beautifully! The whole salon works as a team to help others, and going the extra mile to make you feel gorgeous and pampered is definitely noticed!


Had a hair color consultation with Emily. She put together a great long term plan for my hair & I’m excited to actually go back and get the color treatment done! Emily listened to all of my concerns, but offered her advise on what would look/work best. Great experience - here’s to hoping the next 6 weeks fly by!

Erin Ramsey

Lauren is the BEST! To sit in her chair is to be truly pampered! She gives the absolute best scalp massages (seriously, they’re to die for)! She’s so knowledgeable and diligent to give you the cut you’d like. She’s trendy, helpful and sweet. I’ve loved every cut she’s ever given me!! You will not be disappointed!

lori gregory

Bri does a phenomenal job with my highlights! My hair is healthier than it ever has been and the color dimension she achieves is the best I’ve seen, hands down. I get tons of compliments on my hair! If you can get in to have her do your color, do it!

abigail ginther

Christmas in July! Katie Joe is the best of the best. We couldn’t love her more!

Jen Lawyer

Blakelee is an amazing triple threat!! She is so talented at color, her customer service skills are excellent and she has a warm sweet personality.

Brent Isenberger

Zoey did a great job! Made me feel comfortable and was engaging while doing my pedicure. Made me very feel relaxed.

Michelle Curtis

Bree does a great job. Really enjoy having her as my stylist!

Dane Mehring

I have been going to Katie Jo for the past few years. She goes above and beyond, every time! Her patience, professionalism, and attention to detail is top notch! Salon W’s customer service and the entire staff is friendly and makes sure that your experience is one to be remembered.

Claire Richmond

Kailynn and Mia keep my hair and brows looking beautiful. They are efficient, great listeners and keep me on trend.

Janine Zantingh

MC was amazing!!! She made me feel so special and took such care in giving me the most gorgeous layered haircut. My hair is beautiful and exactly what I was hoping for. Well worth my hour drive-can’t wait until next time! Thank you!

Hailey Workman

Mia is the best at getting to know me while doing a flawless job on my waxing. I work from home and often am jumping on or off calls as I’m rushing into my appointment and she’s always patient and accommodating with me.

Jaime Davis

I have been going to Sarah for years and couldn’t imagine going to anyone else! She makes my hands or feet look amazing all the while making me laugh! She is AWESOME!

miranda ayers

Every single person I’ve encountered here is lovely, extremely knowledgeable, and hears my needs. I would never go anywhere else, the experience at Salon Spa W is unmatched and the results are perfect.

Jennifer Murphy

This was my first time going to Salon Spa W. I needed an eyebrow wax like you wouldn't believe and a opted for a manicure as well. Zoe did my manicure and she was amazing. She was super friendly and personable. She helped me pick the perfect color. She even recommended the salt scrub which I did and I am so glad I did. My hands feel refreshed and look beautiful and better than before. Then I saw Mia for an eyebrow wax and she did a lovely job. She shaped them perfectly to my face and was gentle. Which helps when you're getting any kind of wax. I definitely did not leave disappointed and will definitely return for some more "me time" and even some sister time.

Jacquelyn Dewdney

Molly is such an extraordinary stylist! And Avalon is truly an artist with color. Both Molly and Avalon are able to bring out the best aspects of my hair! I always leave SalonSpa W feeling fabulous!

Robin Ahnen-Cacciatore

Sarah's manicures are amazing! She really knows her stuff! Even when my hands are at their worst .... dry, hangnails, and dirty from working in the garden ... when Sarah's done they look like the hands and fingertips of a hand model. Thanks Sarah!!!

Emily Heil

Excellent service top to bottom! Knowledgeable colorists and lovely little extras like a scalp massage, actually decent wine, and paraffin hand treatment. Highly recommend!

Every service here is wonderful and the people feel like family! They also are so knowledgeable and are always continuing to learn.

Angela Foster

Brynn Hansen

This salon is super friendly and I have never been disappointed with my haircut or color!! Emily A. has highlighted my hair for years and I am constantly impressed with her professionalism, friendliness, and intelligence about hair color & products. She always listens to exactly what I want and suggests great products to help my fine blonde hair! I would 100% recommend her and any of the stylists at Salon Spa W!!

Annebelle Spaur

All of the staff was AMAZING! Super happy with my service with Ranee! Best salon experience in a long time!

Stacia Weber

Corbin is amazing! Superior attention to detail and so talented!

Zoey was very sweet & did an amazing job with my nails! I’m very happy with how they turned out! She helped me pick out colors I love & added a cute foil design to my nails. Would definitely recommend!

Angelly Guerrero

Better than what I could've asked for. Love the haircut and style. I felt like she really listened to what I wanted and made sure I was happy at the end. Will be coming back for sure!

Kat Dvorak

Corbin was lovely to work with and so sweet! We so appreciate that she came in early to accommodate our 8am appointment with the judge to get married. She did exactly what I wanted and finished my hair in just about 20-25 minutes so we still had time to throw my dress on and get across the river to the courthouse. Can't wait to see our wedding photos with my perfect hair! Thank you Corbin and Salon W!

Chelsea Cox

Jamie was so wonderful! She gave me exactly what I wanted for my hair. She knew what questions to ask to make sure I was happy with the end result & went above and beyond in every way. I felt so taken care of.

Leigh Upchurch

My first time at your salon and can’t wait to come back the next time I’m in town! Thanks to Kamille for the excellent service! Loved it!

Ajla Rosic

Beautiful space, and wonderful service. I recommend MC for haircuts!!

Syd Rohrssen

I would highly recommend stylist Jamie! She was kind, gentle and was super helpful with a couple of the questions that I had. The atmosphere of the actual salon was dreamy to say the least. Would highly recommend this spot!

Annie Hatlie

Finding Kaylynn has been the best thing that’s happened to my hair since I got hair when I was two! She does an absolutely fantastic job cutting and styling hair. I love her calm, gentleness, professionalism and perfection when she is taking care of you and your hair. She goes over and beyond for her clients. For example, I told her I had a rehearsal and wedding when she was cutting my hair and she went out of her way to not only style my hair, but teach me the steps along the way so I could re-create it for the wedding. She also did my make up. She is amazing and I would highly recommend her to anyone out there.

Steve Roth

After years of coming to Salon W, my go to Barber moved on. This was my first appointment with Madi. She did a great job taking my rambling expectations and turned my mop into exactly what I wanted. She took no extra prompting while cutting my hair. She’s a great conversationalist and a true professional.

Alexandra Buck

I had my hair colored by Emily and I LOVE it! I loved how Emily took time to really listen to what I wanted and knew what kinds of questions to ask as far as what look I was going for. I can’t wait to be back!!

Carrie Padgett

Rian was excellent, attentive, and I highly recommend her. I’m from out of the state, but if I come back to Des Moines, I’ll definitely return to her!

Rachael Simpson

Such a great experience! I used to go to Salon W years ago. I'm so glad I went back!

Paul D'Anna

Love Rian’s positive energy! She always has a smile on her face while always being professional. But perhaps I shouldn’t give her such a glowing review - it’s getting more difficult to book with her!


Absolutely wonderful experience and results with Bri and Corbin!! I love Salon Spa W!

Heidi Wessels

Mollie and the team at Salon W are more than service providers. They are friends with amazing talent. I always feel special going there- from the moment I arrive til the time I leave. My favorite time to unplug, relax, laugh and enjoy.

Susan Grismore

Luv Ruby...her personality shines and what a great job she did upping my normal color to something warmer for the fall season...Rocking this new color and I love it!

Ericka Kenney

I was initially really excited to get my hair done here. but I left with almost the exact color I came in with, I barely noticed the difference. and the girl who cut my hair did NOT cut it how I asked, so not worth the 300+ i paid. when I tried to reschedule to get my color a second go out of faith they tried to make me come at 10 in the morning and later the same day at 4. I live 45 minutes from the salon. it's ridiculous to assume someone would any to waste a whole day around 2 different hair appointments instead of just doing it all at once.. needless to say I went into a Walmart salon and got exactly what I want the first time. so no. I wouldn't recommend. I wish I could give less then one star

Mila Hugo

Kind of an intimidating salon at first, but the talent and friendliness of employees puts you at ease immediately. They’re extremely professional, friendly, offer complimentary wine and send reminders for appointments. They’re very much worth the prices!


Jenna helped me sample some of the new lip colors for fall. She is always professional, helpful and makes great suggestions as well. She is a true gem and makes the customer experience very positive.

Brynn Carman

This place is so fabulous! Mia does an incredible job with my brows. Giving them new shape and a whole new look. Madi has been doing my hair for two years now and she’s amazing. Both ladies and just about everyone in here is great to talk to. A wonderful place to go get pampered downtown.

Bree is fantastic. Knows color and what works for each person. Love it and we’ll worth any cost. Beautiful! Thanks for a great experience. Everyone is so customer focused. Very nice!

Excellent customer service and skill level. I love the care and attention I get at the salon.

Randi Jon Gustason

Kat is a wonderful massage therapist and highly recommend booking with her.

Sarah Boese

I had a wonderful massage from Ryan! She was extremely skilled, super professional and an absolute pleasure to chat with. It is obvious that she really cares about her work and her clients. I can’t wait to come back!

Love Mollie!!! She can take all my words and help net out what I’m trying to say. She is excellent at cutting hair, so much so I am always amazed that I wake up and my hair doesn’t need much work. My hair is healthier since I began going to Salon W and Mollie... she knows what is best for my hair. Mollie is kind and easy to talk to. I always look forward to sitting in her chair!

Julee Strub

I wasn’t able to get in with my regular stylist, Amber, for hair color, so I hesitantly made an appointment with another stylist, Mikaylah. She went above and beyond to include Amber when discussing the plan for my hair. I really appreciate both of their willingness to work together to make it all happen. The color is perfect and reassured my decision to trust that Salon W hires awesome employees. Thanks again ladies for everything!

Sherri Goering

Katie Jo is best in class. I would blindly trust her with my hair every single time. Her skills are unparalleled.

L Bradley

Love this place! If you're looking for a new salon, give them a try and prepare to be blown away! Edit: My facial was great!

I enjoyed my session and have already booked my next facial with her!

Alacyn Cox

The cut I got was excellent and exactly what I wanted; the experience and vibe of the salon is just the cherry on top!

Rhea Gaskins

Lauren was amazing. My sister used to have her as a stylist before she moved to Minnesota and after I was done we were raving about how great she is! Definitely who I’ll go to in the future.

Emily Gall

I cannot fully express how I feel after my appointment at Salon W last night. I went there in a desperate state after a really unfortunate hair coloring situation at another salon. I was mortified and really feeling self-conscious about how I looked. They treated me with such kindness and were above and beyond in figuring out a game plan on repair for me. Even though it was my first time there I felt like a friend to the staff. I had a wonderful color consultation with Bri and a fantastic cut with Elle. I cannot thank them enough for making me feel reassured in a tough situation and would recommend fully to anyone.

Josee Salamone

First haircut with Elle and she did an amazing job! My hair looks great! Thank you Elle See you next month!

Susan Judkins Josten

I appreciate the professional yet personalized service, the creative styling ideas, and special touches like being offered a beverage upon arrival, paraffin hand treatment, and a makeup touch up before heading out the door.

Christine Larson

Emily has been my colorist for a few years now and I always walk out of the salon feeling like a million dollars! She listens to what I’m thinking, gives advice and ideas when needed and delivers every time! I recommend Emily and Salon Spa W every chance I get and will continue to do so for years to come.

Korley Westvold

Bailey and Jamie were both fabulous! I love my treatment and my new haircut!

Mackenzie Walsh

Corbin was wonderful to work with - she listened to my plans/preferences and explained everything to me. She made sure I loved it and felt good about it! It was a perfect balance of chatting, joking, and just taking it in. I loved both looks for my wedding trial and can’t wait for the actual day!

Clara Stephens

Great environment! Jamie did a great job cutting my hair! Super friendly place and a great vibe!

alexis mandery

Absolutely amazing experience!! I was in Des Moines for business and desperately needed a haircut after work. I am from New York, so my expectations were low and I really only wanted a trim. Salon And Spa W did not disappoint at all and went above and beyond! The minute I walked in someone offered to check me in while I sat down and they offered complimentary wine/Prosecco (and gave me a complimentary refill too). I had Lauren as my stylist and she was sweet, professional and knowledgeable. Once my consultation was done, I got a complimentary scalp massage and hand paraffin wax. After my “do” was complete I was also offered a complimentary makeup touch up on my way out. Great haircut, amazing experience, well worth the money and can’t recommend enough!

Sommer Myst

They got me in on short notice, and from the minute i walked in the door i felt welcomed. all staff were very friendly and did a great job on my hair! definitely will come back.

Karen Matysik

Kaylynn gave me a great haircut and was very thorough in explaining the cut, the styling process and the products. Already scheduled my next appointment!

Michele Granada

Jackie always does an excellent job! Love her work always and she makes me look younger every time I leave the salon.

Christina Peterson

I get my hair done twice a year and have have really bad experiences at other salons. But I came to Salon Spa W and it was life changing. I don't like spending money. But I think the experience and care everyone here gives their clients makes you feel amazing and they make sure you actually care about the outcome and how you feel. Carin is literally the best! She always does such an amazing job!

Eliud Fernando Cavanzon

Great service in very calm, clean environment. Excellent body mud treatment that was performed by a wonderful staff.

Rohit Lala

Best deep tissue massage ever!!! Kat is amazing I visited the salon for the first time. They offered me a beverage while I filled out a my information on a tablet. I picked sparkling wine out of the numerous options that were on menu. The ambience of the salon is simply amazing, very upbeat and lively. I had an appointment with Kat for a Deep Tissue massage. I'm not even exaggerating when I say this - it was one of the best massages I've ever had. Massage Room: beautiful room, like a studio apartment with in-room shower, mirror, lot of space etc. Peaceful setting with the perfect lightning and music. Massage Bed: High quality heated bed that soothes the sore body. Kat put extra pillows to lay my legs on which made the experience even better. Massage: I opted for a Deep tissue treatement. Kat was brilliant, very professional, and knew what she was doing. I felt extremely refreshed after the treatment. She even gave me DIY tips that I could use at home to improve my body flexibility. Best part of the massage was when she wrapped a hot towel around my face & another one around my legs, and massaged the part from over. Cost: $70/hr + taxes Overall: I've already booked my next appointment. 100% worth it and will recommend it definitely.
