For short hair, soft curls can give you a fun and flirty Great Gatsby feel. Long hair looks beautiful with big loose curls.

St. Baldricks 2017

Raising Money For Cancer Research

Last weekend three of Ruby’s Salon stylists took a stand against childhood cancer. From 2-7 Kelly, Katie and Halie were at Fado’s Restaurant shaving heads in support of research for the cure for pediatric cancer.


Kelly is our head stylist and owner of Annapolis Ruby Salon. Halie has been with Ruby for 1.5 years and Katie just joined our team a short 6 months ago. These wonderful women spent their weekend helping to raise awareness of the realities of childhood cancer. St. Baldricks is a foundation that raises money for cancer research.


Our team loves giving back to the community we care about. St. Baldricks events are all about bringing our community together to support the members in need. Every person who came out to get their head shaved donated to childhood cancer research. This worthy cause was a great way for Ruby to contribute to raising critical funds needed for research.


We are proud of our team and all participants of this years St. Baldrick’s event! Thank you for coming out to support a great cause!

Get Your Glow

Feeling confident in her perfect body.As winter starts to come to a close you may be thinking about how pale the winter has left your skin. Annapolis Ruby Salon is a proud exclusive provider of Envy Tan®. Our organic sunless tanning solution will leave your skin looking naturally bronzed and radiant.

Will I Look Orange?

No! Our 100% organic tanning solution offers natural color that accentuates your skin tone. The special solution will not stain or leave streaks. One of our professional staff members will take the time to carefully mix your personalized formula to enhance your natural skin. From just a glow, to full on bronzed, we can achieve the tan you have always desired.

Spray Tan V. Tanning Beds

Airbrush tanning allows you to tan your skin without dangerous exposure to UV lights. Studies show that tanning beds may have dangerous side effects such as increased risk of skin cancer. Prolonged exposure to the sun, or synthetic UV lights can also cause premature aging and wrinkles.

Our spray tan solution is FDA approved. The active ingredient reacts with your natural amino acids in the upper layer of your skin leaving you sun-kissed, without the harmful side effects. Organic spray tanning offers temporary and natural looking results for a beautiful and confident look.

Before a spray tan, we recommend that all clients take an exfoliating shower the day of treatment. Well exfoliated skin absorbs the formula better and allows for more even results. We also suggest waiting up to 12 hours before showering after treatment. Most spray tans last 5-10 days depending on your exfoliation rate. Our salon specialists can help you choose skin care products that can help to extend your radiant glow.

Get a head start on your tan before you take off to your tropical destination, or get a beautiful glow for a big night out on the town. Our spray tans are safe, quick and easy, we bet you will be instantly hooked.

Schedule An Appointment

Contact our Annapolis full-service salon for all of your beauty needs. Our highly trained and experienced stylists can help you pamper and prep for any day, or even the big day. We offer special services of weddings, waxings, makeup services, and a full hair salon.

New Year, New Cut

Fashion blonde with stylish short hairstyleAre you feeling the post holidays blues? A new haircut and style from Annapolis Ruby Salon could spice up your look. Whether you want to reinvent yourself in 2017 or just freshen up your locks, Ruby Salon can help. Our highly skilled stylist team offers cutting-edge technique and current hairstyles that will compliment your facial aesthetics and personal style.

Current HairCuts

If you are feeling bold try an undercut or maybe take off a good foot of hair and add some dramatic angles.

Soft layers and shoulder length cuts are very trendy right now and can be designed to fit any face shape.

Go Long

Our extensions can be blown dried, curled and flat ironed. Our experienced stylists can add body to any hair with well-placed extensions. Ruby offers complimentary consultations for hair extensions so you can get the exact results you desire.
