Salon Plaza Hyattsville – A Community of Salon Owners
Located on East West Highway in the Metro shopping area, Hyattsville’s Salon Plaza is across from Prince George’s Mall and directly in front of the Prince George’s Subway. You’ll find us on the 2nd floor over the Staples and next to the Bally’s Fitness Club.
Independent salon professionals choose to run their salon out of a Salon Plaza Studio because they love the freedom and privacy it gives them. Their clients enjoy the difference!
Our Members tell all about why they choose Salon Plaza: Let’s hear from…
Michelle Renee, Owner of Elegant Styles Salon in Hyattsville
Michelle is irresistibly positive, always professional, and truly supportive of other Salon Plaza Members –
A real team player, she’s helping to build our community of salon owners. Here’s her story of how she become a salon owner…
“What I love most about Salon Plaza is having privacy in my business. When I worked in a traditional salon, my business was everyone’s business and everyone’s business was in mine.”
Before opening my own shop, I worked in another owner’s space for eight years, part time.
My full time job was as a resident property manager. That situation ended about the same time the salon I was working in went out of business.

I only lasted there 3 days! I can’t tell you all the crazy things that happened, but you can read all about here: 5 Ways to Create a Great Atmosphere at Your Salon.
As my husband reminded me, “Cheaper isn’t always better”
That’s when I went back to Salon Plaza Hyattsville. They still had the vacancy, so I took the plunge. I did what I’ve always wanted to do an opened my own salon, naming it Elegant Styles Salon.
I LOVE Salon Plaza!
It’s been four years now and I’ve never looked back.
A Word to the Wise:
Your business will become what you make of it. You set the atmosphere. What you project into your salon matters.
Positive out, positive back!
Remember that your salon is the place for your clients to unburden themselves. They just unload. None of my clients feel the same way when they leave as they did when they came in. I take them to the sink and give them a therapeutic shampoo –
