Had a consultation today with Samra, completely free! I've been wanting handtied invisible bead hair extensions since last November when I originally had my first consultation and she was super helpful with having a lot of information as to what would work best for me when it comes to my hair. She allowed me to show her pictures and videos of what I was wanting and never once said "oh no we can't do that here, too complicated" like I have had with stylists elsewhere. She color matched me perfectly and allowed me to see ALL options and allowed ME to decide rather than being pushy or deciding for me like I have had happen with past stylists elsewhere. After color matching she walked through pricing with me for multiple options starting with the most expensive to the least expensive and was 100% upfront and honest with me about everything, she stated how much I'd be paying for the hair alone and how much I'd be paying for the service to get them installed. Very short and straight to the point but including all the details at the same time. She also didn't pressure me into making a purchase and was willing to give me as much time as I needed to decide to do whatever I wanted. She also explained to me how to take care of the certain extensions I am getting and allowed me to ask questions and answered all of them perfectly. I honestly haven't felt like I've been in better hands and I am looking forward to our appointment to finally get the extensions installed!! 100% recommend Samra, super knowledgeable and sweet!

She put my nerves at ease & did exactly what I wanted! She was very friendly & personable!!! I will definitely be using Sara as my new stylist!!!

Merideth is the sweetest! She does a fabulous job of really understanding my needs. She helped me by teaching me how to curl my hair better so I don’t damage my ends. Highly recommend!!

Although we had a scheduling issue, they got me in later in the day. Carly was wonderful! She was personable, gave advice, explained what she was doing, and helped me pick out products to use based on what I wanted my hair to do. It was a great experience that made me want to get my next appointment scheduled!
Samra is absolutely amazing! She is such a great person to have do your hair and just to be able to sit in her chair and talk with. I found her looking for someone that was good with reds and she was absolutely the perfect match for me. She truly listens and understands what my hair needs.

Had an appointment today at Pure Aveda Salon and Spa for the first time. I received a color, cut, and style by Samra, and I can't say enough amazing things! I felt so safe, Samra was great in her consultation. She interpreted everything I wanted, and followed through flawlessly! Finally found my "go-to" here in Iowa.

I just went to Pure Aveda Salon and Spa for the first time and had a great experience with Victoria! She was very understanding, kind, and professional. I had showed her a picture similar to what I was wanting and she nailed it! (Thank you Victoria for the cut and color!!!)
This was my first experience at a Salon and Spa and was very pleased! Although I missed out on the shoulder/neck massage, I was able to try something new by having the paraffin hand wax for the first time. I will definitely be looking forward to scheduling another appointment!

I have been to Pure twice now and both times it was amazing! The stylists (Shantel and Holly) both did exactly what I wanted plus you get pampered while you are there. Would highly recommend!

Update: I have now also had several nail services, a pedicure with reflexology, and a prenatal massage and they were equally as amazing! I love this place!

Sara has cut and colored my hair for the last couple years and always does an amazing job! I always feel relaxed and know my hair will look great when she's done. She always makes sure enough time is allotted and never rushes through her work 😊

I had been a client at Pure in Ankeny for 2 years. I recently moved and had my hair colored at a different salon- it was awful!! I cannot say enough good things about Pure, specifically Carly! I have complete trust in Carly. I would show her a glance of a picture and she would make it look EXACTLY like it!! I was never disappointed with anything she did to my hair. I cannot wait to return back home and have Carly back. In the meantime no one else will be touching my hair:)

I cannot say enough good things about Carly. Not only does she do amazing work on cuts and color, but she's also extremely personable and easy to talk to. I tend to be indecisive and can't quite narrow down exactly what I want, but know that I can always show Carly a few pictures of some things I like and she will pull them together to make my hair look amazing because she's knowledgeable and skilled. I always look forward to my appointments with her and would highly recommend Carly (and PURE) to anyone who is looking for a great stylist and salon!

I went to Pure Salon in Ankeny for the first time and had a wonderful experience. Holly was my stylist and she did an amazing job cutting my air and also provided the luxuries of a neck massage and hand waxing, that an Aveda salon is known for. Thank you Holly, I love my hair!

I go to Alesha for pedicures, and I'll now go nowhere else! The steaming hot towels on my feet instead of a tub, a quiet, indie room, a choice of a glass of wine or infused water, pressure point foot massage, and her sparkling personality are the most relaxing experience I've had in a long time!

I love Pure salon!!! I recently moved back to my home state MN but decided to make the 3 hour trip to get my hair done! I always feel my best walking out of Pure! Thank you Pure for being so amazing 😉
We hired PURE Salon to do the hair and makeup for about a dozen people at our venue for my daughter's wedding last October. They were on time, friendly and professional. The hair/makeup turned out beautifully! It was worth spending more to have them come to us, since we had a larger crowd. I would highly recommend them to you!

Today was my first visit to the salon, with Sarah. From the moment I entered the salon, I really like it. The salon is calm and relaxing. Sarah was ready for me and helped me with root color touch up and a trim. Usually when my color is processing I sit alone while the stylist services another customer. Today, Sarah gave me a back and shoulder massage, a hand and arm massage, and a parafin dip.
It was a quality experiences from start to finish!

Every single time I walk in the door, it is beyond relaxing, inviting, and such an amazing "experience." Wine, paraffin hand waxing, shoulder massages, warm towels, and expertise in hair care, coloring, cutting... everything. I am always in love with my hair every time I leave and I owe it all to Hannah VanFossen - she is a master colorist and I lover her to pieces! <3 Thanks Hannah!

I absolutely recommend Hannah Leigh for your salon needs. Not only is she a fabulous stylist but she has a bright and shining personality!
Amazing service every time! Neck rub, hand massage, paraffin dip, warm wrap on my neck when it's cold outside. I'm a big fan of Pure and the women who make it a 5-star salon.
