The Le'Jemalik salon in Brooklyn, New York was created to be a comfortable space for women to come in and receive their haircuts and treatments.

The business was created by Huda Quhshi after she became fed up with the lack of accessible salons for Muslim women who wear hijabs, as most salons offer services for both women and men, and some Muslim women cannot take their hijabs off in front of men. She decided to create this women-only space in order to ensure that Muslim women felt comfortable while receiving haircuts. Although the Le'Jemalik salon is women-only, it is not only specific to Muslims, and women from all religious and ethnic backgrounds are welcome.

This salon works to create a comfortable space for a minority that tends to be underrepresented in various North American industries.
