Found the salon on Google while working in the area. I had grown my hair out and was ready to chop it to donate to wigs for kids. Taylor did a great job and gave me exactly what I asked for. Great salon!
Hannah did a great job taking my hair from a slightly longer than chin length to a pixie cut. She took the time to hear my thoughts and look at inspirational pictures. She also paid attention to how my hair grows. I am very happy with the resulting cut. Thank you Hannah!

If I could give Akeya 10 stars out of 5 for my wax… but let me start from the top.There are a number of parking options, including validated parking at the hotel across the way. The ambience is so soothing, and I appreciate that they have you fill out a form to understand your skincare practices before starting the wax.As for my wax appt proper, the spa offers so many little details for your comfort. Akeya herself has *phenomenal* technique and is so fun to talk to! I was feeling a bit awkward since it took so long for me to find a new wax spot, but she put me right at ease and checked on me all the way through.I left with aftercare recommendations and products that work as part of the official Nufree line. They work like a dream, and I’m looking forward to my next time in 😊
Varuna is fantastic! On a girls' trip to Annapolis, all of us got great spa treatments followed by a complimentary hair wash and blow dry. It was an overall awesome experience, and we will definitely be coming back!
I’m new in this area, but I’m so pleased to get a haircut at this place! The location is great, staff are friendly, most importantly Caitlin is professional and creative! She gave me the best haircut and I love it! Thank you, Caitlin!
I started going to Taylor at Varuna about 4 months ago. I came to her with very damaged long hair that was breaking off and very brittle. It was also ORANGE from being over processed. I didn't know what I wanted and was probably the worst kind of client. I wanted it to look healthy and wanted a lot of it chopped off because it just looked horrible. She was soooo patient and she really took the time to listen to me and also truly explained to me why she would not be giving me highlights even though I really wanted them. Once she explained why she couldn't and that it would only cause more damage and I really needed to give my hair time to recover, I understood. My hair is mostly grey at this point and I was worried that how she was going to dye my hair wouldn't cover all of the grey but it totally did! I also realized that the color she chose took about 10 years off! I'm not exaggerating! I have been back once since the initial and have another appointment this week. It's is growing out beautifully and everyone comments how beautiful my hair looks! I highly recommend her if you are looking to get your hair healthy again or are looking for someone to help you figure out what you really want!
I've been getting my hair done here regularly for a couple years. Call me a fan! I love this salon & Caitlin is the GOAT! Insider tip: Have a tea while you're here.
A few weeks ago I went and got my yearly haircut (yes, unfortunately I am not joking - yearly) with Allie. She gave me the cutest short summer haircut and I couldn't be happier with it! Looks like I'll be back much sooner. Thank you Allie!
I went to Varuna before a wedding and we had Kat do our makeup. She made all of us feel beautiful inside and out and gave us lots of great tips for the future. Would absolutely recommend this salon! The entire staff was wonderful and very accommodating for us!
I went there for a facial and foot massage. I was a little apprehensive because I had never had a facial before. I was so pleasantly surprised!! Jeffery...
Amazing place! Friendly greetings as I entered to check out. Professional and wonderful stylist!

Highly recommend! I booked a massage with reiki and a facial and I was NOT disappointed! Walking in the door I was greeted by friendly staff and a cup of tea. Lucia was AMAZING! Her hands worked all of my worries away and left me feeling like a new woman. I I’ll definitely be back!
Lucia has MAGICAL hands! I went in for a massage with reiki and a facial and came out glowing (both energetically and visually)! The atmosphere in the salon...
Hannah Miller has an incredible gift of customer service as well as professionalism. She was a pleasure to have and gave an amazing haircut!
I’ve been going to Caitlin T for years to get my haircut and she is the best! Super friendly and welcoming. Always goes above and beyond to make me look my best each time. The hot towels are always relaxing as well. Thank you Caitlin!
I've been going here for probably around 5 years. Caitlin has made sure I have looked my absolute best every time I leave. She is very detailed and has cut me into several different looks (and has crushed all of them). It's always a confidence booster getting my hair cut by her!
I’ve been going to Varuna Aveda for 4.5 years (since moving to Maryland and requiring a new hair stylist). I go to Garrett monthly and I adore him! There’s absolutely no one else I trust with my hair. I now have an undercut, and Garrett gives incredible attention to the details during my monthly cleanups! A few years ago I decided to go silver and he helped me make the choice to not bleach out my hair and instead go with an ash look under the dye job so that it would still look good when I inevitably decided to change up the color (he knows me all too well). He also somehow remembers everything going on in my life, so it feels like catching up with a friend when I come in. I’m including a pic of my current hair! (Color is Overtone but style is all Garrett!)In the past I would have regular Brazilians and occasional facials and my providers at Varuna always did a great job with these. I am super picky about massages and liked someone who left but tried someone new the other day (Susan), and she was fantastic!I’ve been a loyal customer of Varuna since I moved here which is saying a lot because I’ve had negative salon experiences when I was younger. I highly recommend Varuna Aveda!
Great location. Facility staff friendly & courteous. Offered me drinks while waiting. Stylist was knowledgeable and kept me informed as to each process of caring for my hair. Will be returning. They cater to all hair types.

The team at Varuna did an amazing job with hair and makeup for my marriage reception. It is clear that they all take great care to make sure you look and feel your best for a big occasion, and work closely with you so that it is just what you want. Thanks especially to Gina for spending LOTS of time wrestling my normally unruly hair into a very polished and elegant style for the evening. And to Jeffrey for flawless makeup (along with great advice on what would work) and making me feel so relaxed and taken care of while he was working. I went for a full trial before the actual event, which I highly recommend doing so that the day of everyone knows what to expect and do and you can just feel pampered!
Visiting friends in Annapolis and definitely needed a hair cut. Went to Varuna and had Kat who was wonderful. Very talented young woman and if I lived here,...
I have gone here three times now. Once for a blow out, once for a trim and then for a smoothing treatment. Although a really nice boutique salon, the prices are reasonable and the stylists are high end stylists while down to earth. They are wonderful with my three year old. Kate is so personable and makes you feel like you've known her forever. She's the best for textured hair.
I recently came into the salon to get my hair cut by sarah. I have pretty long hair and I just wanted to take the dead ends off. She did a phenomenal job. Time and time again she kills it. I’m not just pleased with the work she does but I’m taken aback by the experience she creates. She is calm, professional, kind, detail oriented and an all around great stylist. I leave every time feeling like a better version of me. Her cuts give you a confidence boost. Not only do I love sarah but all of the staff is professional, respectful, accommodating and a joy to do business with. I will always bring my business here and continue recommending the salon to friends. Love you Veruna Aveda Salon (and staff)!
At first I was very apprehensive to go a salon as a male, but the staff at Aveda quickly made me feel at home. They always greet me with smiles and a warm welcome.My hair stylist was Sarah and she not only did a great job but is also exceedingly kind and really has an eye for hair. She is also very knowledgeable with products and different kinds of hair. I am a male Asian-American with long straight hair, which I feel is very hard to cut and style. However, Sarah has always done an amazing job with and I can confidently say that I have never had a complaint. In fact, she is the only person that I go to for hair now.I highly recommend this place! Thank you guys for your amazing service!
I had such a wonderful experience here! I went in for my routine hair cut and clean up, I left feeling refreshed and beautiful. I had a different stylist than my usual but I’ll be sticking with my new one! Sarah gave me a brand new hairstyle and cut on her recommendation and it was just what I needed. Her styling was incredible but what was much needed was her services and kindness. She gives everyone a massive confidence boost as soon as they walk in the door!
