The Sage Tree traces its roots to 1999 and to a team of stylists that wanted to bring passion and a family atmosphere to the cosmetology industry.  A shared love of downtown Des Moines, and the common desire to offer indulgent services along with the utmost in quality to its guests, while remaining competitively priced, brought together a group of stylists ranging from their 20’s to 60’s and thus was born, the Sage Tree Salon.  A short while after opening, the salon was approached by the Aveda Corporation, which shared the Sage Tree’s ideals and philosophies, and then became an exclusive Aveda Lifestyle Salon.  In January of 2003, the Sage Tree was purchased by James and Lucy Tuttle, who, with their shared experience of the industry and business, began growing and expanding the business further.  The Johnston location was built and opened in 2005, and was followed by the Altoona location shortly thereafter.  Currently the Sage Tree, an AVEDA Lifestyle Salon and Spa, has two locations, Downtown and Altoona.
