Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

A Chat with The Queens Palace Salon
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We are a multi-cultural salon that is up-to-date on the current trends. Each stylist is educated to meet the needs of our ever-growing clientele. We don't just provide a service, we educate our clients on how to care for their hair away from the salon.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I love to see people smile. I wanted to impact people's lives in a more intimate way. By running this business, I am able to put the clients needs first and impact them in a way very few can. Improving the way people see themselves and feel about themselves is motivation enough.
What do you love most about your job?
I love when I finish a client and turn them around to the mirror, and they smile. That really makes my day.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
I love the husbands that call and say "Thank You for making my wife beautiful!"
“Stylist was very knowledgeable, professional, and provided excellent customer service. I love my hair style will definitely go back. ”
“They are great.. Courteous, efficient and extremely professional. I have found by new home for hair care! ”
