We are artists who strive to inspire our clients, refine our craft and share our culture with those around us.

Our small team is tight knit and cultivates an environment of support and growth. We're always looking for driven + passionate individuals to join our Stylist team, Associate Program, or Guest Coordinator positions.

Interested? Apply below!


You’ve had 2-4 years behind the chair working with clients. You’re passionate about developing your skill set, growing your personal network within the community, and setting goals.  You have a strong sense of self and know your strengths. You’re coachable and practice open communication with the other members of your team. Your clients can’t help but refer their friends and family to you because you leave a positive impression on them and they walk away from an appointment with you reinvigorated and totally feelin’ themselves.

Associates Program

You’re currently enrolled in or freshly graduated from a cosmetology program, and are seeking a unique and inspiring in-salon experience. You are self motivated, driven and care about building connections as you establish yourself in the community of stylists in Des Moines. Your positive attitude reflects your excitement for your newly budding creative career.  You’re coachable and eager to learn.

Guest Coordinator

Your energy is electric and you strive to make a positive impact with every interaction you make. You know your place as a support member to the team is invaluable because clients begin and end their experience with you. You have an interest in the realm of beauty/fashion/marketing and want to be part of a team that encourages your personal and professional growth. Strengths must include multi-tasking, prioritizing, brainstorming and agenda setting.  Daily focus in the salon includes managing a smooth flow, covering client communications, booking appointments, handling inventory, seeing that our guests are checked in and out, and giving out high fives as needed.


Use this form to introduce us to yourself.  We want to know about you as a person, not just the facts from a resume.  

Inhale deeply and take a minute to answer these questions. We're excited to hear from you but even more so for the potential opportunity to meet the next fresh face to join our tribe.

Thanks for your interest in joining Oliver+james!
