Sonam Dekyi

Hailing from Lhasa, Tibet, Sonam loves art, reading, styling hair, and being with her kids. Since leaving her homeland, her travels have taken her to 12 countries around the world. She has visited Paris, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Kathmandu, and most recently Reykjavík, Iceland.

Sonam’s professional life has been full of creative endeavors, from acting in film to teaching Tibetan language courses at the University of Virginia. She began her career as a hair stylist in 2001 apprenticing under John Carden. Sonam was happy to return to Salon Druknya in the summer of 2008, where she continues to serve as one of our senior stylists.
