Giovanna diffidently has some great skill. She knows what she's doing. I just wish that she had been a little more considerate about personal preference. I returned after several successful appointments and was in the process of growing

I've been in Iowa for 4 years now and it has taken me all of this time to find Meredith. I am a natural medium to dark brunette and am lightly graying. I have allowed many highlights and lowlights to be worked into my hair. Nothing ever

Hello Ladies
I wanted to write to all you girls who are afraid to get your haircut. I was one of those girls too. I have never gotten a haircut worth going back for but this was phenomenal and it was done by Alesha!! She was so great at picking the perfect length and shape to compliment my face!! So impressed:) thanks Jane

Last minute, great service!

I was in Des Moines for the Gold Star Horse Show and needed my hair done. I called at 10 minutes to 8 p.m. expecting to set an appt for later in the week. Giovanna & Meredith were booked so they conversed and decided to have me come right down. Not only did I get AWESOME hair (cut & color), I was treated like royalty, not a last minute pain in the.......! Giovanna gave me a great hair cut, Meredith did some very cool color and I walked out of there totally happy and satisfied with the services I got.

They went way above and beyond the kind of service and treament I expected as a possible 1X or 1X per year customer. If I get to go back for another horse show (waaaaay up north there in IA), I'll call before I leave home and set an appt to see them again!

Loving the Bumble and Bumble products too.

Giovanna diffidently has some great skill. She knows what??s in and how to do whatever is popular. Unfortunately as much as I love her hair cuts when you get your hair cut by her you better be willing to hand over all control of the outcome. Often even if you express what you like and don??t like about certain haircuts or looks often she will do what she thinks is best and what is ??in?. Personally I am a control freak when it comes to my hair and I know that about myself. So when I go in and tell Giovanna what I don??t like, even if it??s ??in?, I have walked out with exactly or partly what I said I didn??t want. Also none of the haircuts Giovanna does are a simple morning maintenance type of hair cut, you will diffidently have to wash/style/product all the cuts every morning. But I will give props to Giovanna, if you want something different and runway quality this is a great place to go.

And I don't like salons in general. Stylists rarely listen, and on top of that, they tend to force invasive conversations about my personal life.

My only experience with Atelier is with Meredith, a colorist. She not only listened but took quite a bit of time clarifying my desires to make sure she understood. I was skeptical of the lowlights she suggested with my highlights, but the result was beautiful. I've only had one visit with her, but she earned my trust. An added benefit was that she caught on quickly that I didn't want to talk much or answer irrelevant questions. Thus, not only was the hair color what I wanted, but so was the overall experience.

The salon is small and a wee bit crowded, but it was so much more pleasant than an enormous fast food type of salon. The prices are just a little more than most upper scale salons in the Des Moines area, but Meredith's expertise was well worth the price.

I'll be back.

After going to the same stylist for 7 yrs. I decided to try Giovanna and Meredith at Alelier / hairspace. So glad I did! I came out with the most spectacular color and cut I have ever had. The exceptional staff treated me as if I had been a client for years. I feel confident in returning to Atelier for years to come.

I had high hopes. The first haircut was great. I called to make another appointment and the lady I had before wasn't there anymore. I made the appointment with Giovanna. I was on time and the receptionist told me Giovanna would be with me shortly. I waited a 1/2 hour and she finally showed up with no apology as to why she was late. Just a thank you for waiting. I went ahead with the haircut as I had maternity pictures scheduled later that day and wanted my hair to look really good. The haircut was $50 and I ended up coming home in tears (my poor husband). My hair looked the same as when i woke up that morning. I ended up rescheduling my photos as I didn't have time to redo my hair. I am not going back.

I have been looking for the right hair salon since I moved here a year ago. I am so thankful that a friend recommended Atelier. Meredith and Giovanna are SO talented, professional and friendly. I absolutely love my new cut and color!

Pros: professional, friendly, warm inviting environment

Cons: only one stylist and one colorist

When I moved back to Iowa after being away for 25 years, I wanted to get the great styles and cuts that I was getting before leaving. My niece recommended Giovanna and all I can say is: Giovanna rocks! I have given Giovanna free access to style and cut my hair. As a result, I have been getting superb hair styles. Since my hair is so thick, good haircuts are required if I want to easily style my hair; as well as, look good until the next haircut. Also, by being totally gray, a perfect haircut/style is necessary, in order to look more youthful and age appropriate. It is so refreshing to know I can be confident that I will get beautiful long lasting hairstyles with Giovanna!

Wow, I've been looking for a salon like this for a long long time. We all look through magazines and dream we could find a stylist as talented as the ones the models/celebrities use, but know they pay a fortune for their chair time. But, you can go downtown Des Moines and actually receive a haircut fit for an A-list celebrity. Giovanna really knows what she's doing! I brought in a bunch of pictures and she went through each and everyone of them with me....we decided together what would work best and then she went over BEFORE she took a scissors to my hair what she was going to do. She made sure I was comfortable with everything first! My hair looks like the picture I brought in....I'm so excited. She truly works magic with her scissors. She gave me exactly what I wanted and took the time to even style it like the photo. She did want to cut just a little more off, but when I hesistated she didn't get frustrated with me....instead she worked around it and made it WORK! I actually want to get up and do my hair tomorrow - Thank you, Giovanna - you are a very talented woman!!!!! I will be back...that's for sure.

Pros: Celebrity Level Haircut/Style for Reasonable price...

I moved to Des Moines 3 years ago and had the hardest time finding a hair dresser. Then, someone recommended I try Tiffany at Atelier. I have to admit that I didn't have very high hopes when I went in. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Tiffany was GREAT! She listen to what I wanted and we worked together to find the right style for me. I recently moved to the St. Louis area and actually drove back to get my hair cut by Tiffany!

I would so recommend using Tiffany Mally! I told her I had a big event coming up and she talked with me in length about what I wanted to do with my hair. She listened and offered suggestions and then together we decided what to do with not only the style but also the color.

It was an awesome experience and I am still going to Tiffany! I promise you won't be disappointed!!!

I went to the salon in hopes that somebody could tell me what looks good. I always wanted to be a red head but always walked out with it to brown or to orange. Meredith got the color right. 1st time. It is so pretty and natural. You must go and get your hair done there. You will get the best color in iowa

Wow! I had heard great things about this salon, so I decided to give it a shot. After some so-so cuts/colors at a WDM salon, I was ready for a change. I am SO glad I went!! Meredith gave me the most thorough color consultation I have ever had! She was very knowlegable!! My color looks amazing-I've had so many compliments!!! Tiffany cut/styled my hair, all while explaining what she was doing, and how I could create the same look at home. She was awesome! Hands down, best cut/color I have ever had!! The atmosphere is great, they are so friendly!! I can't say enough about the experience-I will definitely be back!

I have to admit that it was a bit of a struggle to get me to step foot in a fancy salon! I used to think they were overpriced and that great clips could do the same for less. BOY WAS I WRONG!!! I went to Atelier on a friend's recommendation, and I was blown away! Each girl specializes in either cutting or coloring, so they really are experts. They have a talent that you just don't see anywhere else, at least in the Des Moines area. I have been there twice now, and each time I walked away with a completely different, unique, and amazing look! The atmosphere is so friendly and upscale - it reminded me of a French boudoire. I felt pampered and special by all the girls. Michele spent so much more time and effort on my color than anyone else ever has to get it just perfect. And Tiffany made my cut and style look totally glam! It was so much more than a hair cut! I felt like a movie star! And best of all, Tiffany shows you how to get the look yourself at home. The girls really focus on giving you something realistic that you can maintain and afford but that also looks stunning. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SALON FOR PERSONAL ATTENTION AND SERVICE!!!

Atelier Hairspace is by far the best salon in the Des Moines area, it is the total package, great stylists, fabulous products, a good location and a cool but inviting atmosphere! Meredith colored my hair about a month ago and not only did it turn out PERFECTLY I had an amazing time with her. Meredith is such a sweet and talented stylist; we just laughed and had a great time! While I have not actually had services with the other girls I have seen them work and they are also a lot of fun and equally talented. The atmosphere of the salon is also fabulous; it has the feel of a New York style salon but with a warm and welcoming feel. Having been a stylist for 3 years myself I am very picky about where I go to get my hair done, but Atelier surpassed every expectation I had! Atelier provides excellent services but also and excellent experience!

I just move to Iowa and got real BAD HAIR COLOR!! I found this salon on city search. I liked how small and personal it was.
Meredith Did my color and gave me exactly what I wanted. She listen to me and asked a lot of questions. I could just tell she knew what she was doing. My color looks so soft and pretty. I think this is the best color ever!!!! Thank you MEREDITH!!!

I have just moved to the area from Los Angeles, where I had a great supply of "movie star" salons in my reach. After reading the reviews, Atelier Hairspace proved to be a 5 star salon. Tiffany gave me a professional consultation on my options, and listened to my long list of questions and concerns. I walked out with a haircut almost exactly as Tiffany described in the consultation. The atmosphere was trendy and lofty, and I had no problem with the parking with a 5 o'clock appt. I finally have a hair stylist I can visit regularly!!!

Being new to the area I was concerned about finding a great colorist/ stylist. I looked up places and saw the reviews for this salon. Had my hair done yesterday and I am impressed and extremely happy with the results! I have gone to the same person for 8 years in my previous state and am very loyal, so I wanted to find a new stylist here that I would love, and I have! Nicki and Tiffany were great and I would highly recommend them!! The prices were pretty normal from my past salon, so no issues there either! Very happy!!

I just read review of Tiffany's ability to style hair. Sorry. At all costs (and I mean at great cost) avoid the nightmare of having Tiffany cut or color your hair. You will be miserable and wished you went to Great Clips.

How has no one yet mentiioned the music? If I have to sit somewhere for two hours I want to be listening to some amazing music. I leave so very happy with my hair and it actually is cut in a way that still looks good several weeks after. Giovanna and company set a mood in that hair space that give me one more reason to love DSM. And Nicki's eyebrow wax is the best--no redness, no strays and she's quick. Worth feeding a greedy downtown meter for these gals!

I have tried all other places to get the perfect professional haircut I wanted. Not one place would listen to what I wanted, & the haircuts always came out bad.
I work with Attorneys, JCO's, DHS etc., my hair was extremely long & I was tired of styling my hair up. I was in need of a haircut. I heard about "Atelier " I was hesitant on trying anymore hair salons,
I called to make a appointment. when I got there, I was greeted with a friendly smile & I was treated like a queen. I got right in. My stylest name was Tiffany, she asked me questions, she listened to exactly what I needed. While she was cutting my hair, she would explain everything she was doing to my hair, & what products she was using. She did an Excellant JOB!!!!!
She made me look 10yrs younger, (I'm not exaggerating) my hair was perfect every single day, I received tons of compliments on the way my hair & I looked, even after a month on receiving my haircut, I was still getting the compliments!
Tiffany is the best Hair Stylest ever!!!!!
Everyone should give her & her co-workers a try!!!!
I am now a regular SATISFIED customer!
THANK YOU TIFFANY!!!!!!!!

Seeing a bad review here of Giovanna's outstanding work, I was inspired to create an account just to write a review. Giovanna truly has a gift with hair and we are lucky to have her. I moved here from Chicago a year ago and have lived in many places throughout the States, including San Francisco and LA. I have gone to some of our country's best salons, and Giovanna ranks right up there with the best. She does an outstanding job of listening to the client and giving the client the perfect cut. In fact, I prefer her to many of the super-star stylists I've had, as she is so down to earth and the cut is really about you. I'm sorry someone (aewolff) apparently had a bad experience, but that is totally at odds with my experience. And the one thing I am really picky about is my hair. Give Giovanna a try, if you haven't already. You'll be so glad you did.

I'm very glad to have found Atelier! I've moved here from Colorado and it has been moderately challenging to find a stylist that works as an artist. This small, quaint salon makes one feel elite. It's in the middle of downtown so I often enjoy the farmer's marker before my appointments!
I get A LOT of compliments on my cut and color. I'm scared to go anywhere else - being the blunt cut jungle it is out here!
Signed,
Rid of the ennui society that spreads abhorrence! Go to a chain if you want mundane!

Pros: Lots of questions about wants/how you normally style your hair.

I felt this salon had a very unprofessional feeling to it by canceling my VERY first appointment with only a half hour notice before my scheduled appointment. I was stupid enough to go at a rescheduled time. During the appointment we were interrupted several times by walk in customers and phone calls. Overall it did not go well. I am STILL after a couple of months growing out my horrible hair cut. It will take me many more months boohoo. I left with layers (after I said I hate lots of layers) looking like a Rod Stewart wanna be....basically it's horrible!!!!! I went to this salon because of the excellent reviews. I am now wondering if the reviews were done by friends and family???? At my first hair cut after this one....the stylist was actually mortified by the shape of my hair. Layers were heavy and strange......sadly for me she agreed I looked like Rod Stewart. Not a fun way to spend the holiday season. I am now taking every vitamin and using hair growth shampoo to try my hardest to put this hair cut behind me. HORRIBLE....is all I have to say. If you have ever experienced a bad hair cut like this and understand how I feel.....I do not recommend you using this salon.....if you want to understand the feeling of total despair so you can relate with other girl friends....give it a shot! Oh, also....this hair cut cost $60.00. The most expensive I have found in DM. Glad I spent so much to traumatize myself.

Cons: service, parking, price, overall skill, time management, dirty

Giovanna's the best in Des Moines. I'm from San Francisco, moved here in February and went through a few rounds of hairstylists in the area -- Giovanna's by far the most skilled and pleasant to work with. My entire office gets their hair cut by her -- Anne comes out looking like Bardot and I've kept my gamine little pageboy look. The male clients come out looking like the boys I like to date. Yeees.

All in all, the women's hair is high fashion and slick. If I wanted to look like Agyness Deyn, I'd go to Atelier.

I just got my eyebrows waxed at Atelier Hairspace and it was by far the BEST wax I have ever had which is saying a lot since i am a very picky person when it comes to that! I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a GREAT wax, haircut or color!!!

Atelier Hairspace is an outstanding asset to downtown Des Moines. Giovanna is a true talent that takes the time to consult with her individual clients to determine what the best cut is for thier facial features and lifestyle. I have been to many stylists in the Des Moines area and have not found any that can compete with Giovanna's quality/artistic cut. Furthermore, Sarah was my colorist and provided me with fresh ideas to update my look. I came out of the salon with the best color I have had for years.

Pros: Quality of products and expertise of stylist and colorist

Cons: parking

I was a cheap cut, just get me in and out fast type of person. As a guy, I was not interested in going to a Salon. But my wife insisted I give Atelier a try, and I am very impressed. My hair is professional, I don't have to go as often, and I get lots of compliments.

Pros: excellent cut for man

Cons: was no sign at first but now there is and it's easier to find

.

this is a great place to go where the staff remember faces with names and it's not just some "take a number" style of salon. sarah was my colorist and did a fantastic job. i'm a very picky and choosey person when it comes to my hair and always expect the best. and that is just what i got. i recommend it to anyone who wants a great color and cut along with it.

Giovanna knows great hair. She spends the time to talk through your ideas but more importantly to assess you hair type, face shape, etc., and make suggestions for a hairstyle that works for you and your lifestyle. I have been to some of the best salons in Chicago and Boston and I think that Giovanna is one of the most talented artists around. She offers something very unique for Des Moines!

Giovanna Morano is a very friendly, insightful, and inspired hair stylist. There is nowhere else in town that you can get the level of style and service she provides. The atmosphere is very cool. It feels like being let in on the secret when you go to her place. On 4th Street in Downtown Des Moines, but without any signage, you have to know where you are going to get there. Complimentary wine is a nice touch. Wireless Internet might come in handy, too. The world-class haircut is what will keep me coming back.

Atelier Hairspace is a modern place to renovate your look. Giovanna took many things into consideration while giving me options on styles that would work best for me. We discussed the natural style of my hair, face shape, as well as my personal fashion. I ended up with a trendy hair cut that was completely me. After cutting and styling Giovanna also went over the best products to use and how to style my hair for different occasions. Whether I am off to my job, or a night on the town I know my hair will look it?s best!
