About Us

Our commitment at Varuna Aveda Salon Spa is to exceed your expectations. We are proud to be a locally female-owned small family business co-branded with Aveda at the highest Lifestyle level because we believe in the Aveda mission. We are an eco-friendly build-out powered by wind energy proving that Green is Gorgeous. Our team is committed to the highest level of guest service with the highest quality salon experience in conjunction with our exclusive Aveda products.

Many guests throughout our history have asked what the name Varuna means. Varuna is the ancient Vedic god of water, and we celebrate our beautiful water community with his name. The theme of water permeates through our business culture, focusing primarily on the ripple effect – when you truly love life and people, you start a ripple effect that changes the life of another, who, in turn, changes the life of another.

Varuna Aveda Salon Spa is the best salon and day spa in Annapolis for haircuts, balayage, highlights, color corrections, hair extensions, blowouts, waxing, facials, and massages. Varuna opened its doors to immediate acclaim in 2007, and we love our Annapolis community. Recognized nationally as an award-winning salon, Varuna leads Annapolis’ beauty and fashion scene. As a mainstay at New York’s fashion week, Varuna’s creative team is cutting edge of the latest fashion techniques and trends.

Varuna’s goal is to help you escape life’s stress and provide a holistic sanctuary to nourish your mind, body, and soul. Varuna is a place where you can realize the full potential of your inner and outer beauty. Inspired by the traditions and rituals of Ayurveda, Varuna offers you an exclusive setting to relax and rejuvenate. Varuna was designed applying the Ayurvedic principles of Air, Fire, and Water. The result is the creation of a peaceful atmosphere where our clients will experience an instant calm. Varuna is the ultimate environment for the revitalization of your body and mind.

Our goal is for every guest who walks through our doors to feel the happiness and freedom to express themselves in their own lives.
