Salon Druknya is now open!

We'll be accepting same day appointments, but please call first. No walk-ins or new clients. Call for retail products. 

Welcome Back! We've missed you!

As we prepare to reopen our salon, please be aware of changes we have made to our services and salon procedures. It is important for all clients and staff to follow these new practices to ensure the safety of everyone involved.

SANITATION: In order to effectively keep everything sanitized, the staff will be actively cleaning and limiting the number of surfaces individuals may come in contact with. All chairs in the waiting room have been removed and we will only have one operational bathroom. Staff will assist you with retail product selection and water/tea.

APPOINTMENTS: Services will be provided by appointment only. Absolutely NO walk-ins. You may call the salon for a same day appointment. Only one person at a time at the reception window will be allowed. After you have checked in at the front desk, please wait outside until your stylist is ready for you. You may not enter the salon if there is another person at the reception window. There will be chairs available outside the salon for your convenience. If you are experiencing ANY symptoms of illness (i.e. coughing, sneezing, fever, intestinal issues), please call to reschedule your appointment.

SERVICES: We have reduced the scope of our services to shorten the amount of time each client will be in the salon. All clients and staff are required to wear a face mask at all times. 

  • If you are getting a haircut, please arrive with clean, damp or dry hair. There will be no shampoo or blow dry services for haircuts.
  • For color service only (no haircut), you will be asked where you would feel comfortable processing. Options include: 1) processing inside the salon with a shampoo and no blow dry (this option is contingent on the number of people in the salon at the time),  2) processing outside of the salon with a shampoo in the salon (no blow dry) or 3) leaving the salon after color has been applied to process and shampoo at home. Please note: there is a high risk of getting hair color on your mask during application.
  • We are not currently offering waxing or threading services.

NEW SERVICES: For single process clients, we have added the option of purchasing "pre-mixed" color to apply at home. Please call ahead for this service. We will also start mailing retail products if you are unable to come to the salon. Please call or email for details.

As always, you may call or email with any inquiries.

Thank you for reading this and we look forward to seeing you soon! - The Salon Druknya Team 


Salon Druknya (Druknya meaning "the shoulder of the dragon") was founded in 2005 by Tashi and Gyaltsen Druknya. They brought their rich Tibetan culture to the heart of downtown Charlottesville, where they created a salon that goes far beyond superficial beauty.

Salon Druknya is completely unlike any other salon experience. Everything, from the decor to the music, has been carefully designed to create an escape from the busy pace of life.

Our family of cosmetologists, all of whom have had extensive in-house training, work together to create a relaxing and revitalizing environment. Our signature salon experience begins with a shampoo, using quality products and a scalp massage. After your haircut, you will receive a blowout, included in the price, to create the perfect ending to your visit with us.
In addition to precision cuts and color, we are pleased to provide facial waxing and threading hair removal services.

Being beautiful is important. While making you look amazing on the outside, we strive to help you feel beautiful on the inside.

Get in touch today for a better you!

Our business hours are:
