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.

The Udi Salon staff pools its collective expertise to groom clients with a full range of hair services. The stylists hone their skills and keep up on trends by regularly attending hair shows, seminars, and continuing-education courses, instead of doing weekly internet searches for "cute haircuts."
Owner Udi's expertise lies in coloring and highlights using Schwarzkopf Igora and Goldwell products, and other staff members specialize in lushing up tresses with extensions or coaxing them straight with Brazilian blowouts. Products from Enjoy enhance each hair treatment, which is delivered in a sleek white room with black hair stations and leather chairs.
