Giving Back


Did you know the beauty industry creates 877 pounds of waste EVERY. SINGLE. MINUTE. aSPArations is proud to be a Green Circle Salon, recycling up to 95% of our salon's waste. With our guests' support, aSPArations has donated over $40,000 to date, towards recycling & repurposing hair clippings, plastic, paper, metal, and even our hair color!

*To cover the cost of our recycling & repurposing initiative, aSPArations charges a $2 Eco Fee on each guests' service ticket. 




aSPArations Salon and Day Spa is proud underwriter of Vanessa McNeal’s "Gridshock: A Documentary About Sex Trafficking In Iowa". In early 2018, the film utilized crowd-funder Indiegogo in an all or nothing fundraising campaign to reach the $35,000 goal to cover production costs, reaching the filmmakers’ goal 1 day before their February 10th, 2018 deadline. The film premiered April 2nd, at the Civic Center in Des Moines.
