Aveda's Serenity Salon - AMP | Achieving Maximum Potential

Aveda's Serenity Salon

Aveda's Serenity Salon 


“For the past 3 ½ years, on a quarterly basis, Serenity Couture Salon and Spa in Ames has offered a “pampering event” to teens who temporarily reside at the Youth and Shelter Services residential facility in Ames.  Upon arrival at the salon, 4-6 lucky girls are enthusiastically greeted by the manager of the salon and 3-6 stylists who offer them hand and neck massages followed by a hair wash and styling—styling to each of the girl’s requests, from curls, to braids, to straight and everything in between!  In addition to the “pampering”, the girls are informed by the stylists why they chose the career of cosmetology and are provided information regarding where in Iowa the training can be pursued.  


The girls leave the salon relaxed, with beautiful hair and a smile on their face, knowing that they are special people!  YSS/Achieving Maximum Potential (AMP) is so appreciative of the sharing of time and talents and the sincere caring of the Serenity staff.” 

We are thankful for their contributions and we look forward to our continued relationship with Ames Aveda’s Serenity Couture!”
