a little about our salon in ames

Valor & Violet, is an Aveda hair salon located in Ames, Iowa.  We are unlike any other Ames salon. Co-owners, Josh Duchene and Kari Camenisch wanted the salon to have a fresh, organic feel accompanied by their experienced team of hair stylists. We offer a wide variety of services for women and men. From cuts, colors, styles and perms to make-up, waxing and nail services. V&V also carries a full line of Aveda products and retail.


As a local Ames, Iowa business and Aveda salon we care about the world we live in. The products and processes we have ensure our business is sustainable. We have a responsibility to our community to contribute and maintain the beauty of the world we live in.



This is what powers our salon and drives our stylists to the point of perfection. We are passionate about what we do and it shows in the results. With everything we do our primary goal is to provide our guests with the best service possible in a stress-free environment.


It's a way of life, you either love it or you don't, it's a culture and a tribe. We believe that it makes a difference in the world. We do it because it's what's right and exactly what we stand for. We love Aveda and the lifestyle it provides. Stop by Valor & Violet Salon today!
