QBI Family

We are a passionate family of educators excited to share our crafts with students who are eager to expand their knowledge of the beauty industry. 

Founded by two sisters with a vision, Queen Beauty Institute has been providing quality education for nearly six years, extending off of our thirty year old beauty supply store right next door. Laura and Sam have been in the beauty industry since the 1980’s, beginning when their family built, managed, and owned salons in PA, DE, NJ, and Puerto Rico. They transitioned into the Beauty Supply business where they collaborated with companies like OPI, Essie, Lechat, GiGi, Clean & Easy, Gelish, and Satin Smooth to bring extensive product knowledge and innovative techniques to their customers through classes and demonstrations. It was then that they uncovered a need in the industry for a school that would teach more than just what is required to pass the state law exams: a school that would go above and beyond to prepare its students for success in the real world.

In January 2014, with the help of their new partner Teka, Queen Beauty Institute was established. With an extremely diverse student body, Queen Beauty Institute gives students an opportunity to get trained and tested for state exams in  languages other than just English. The fun, unconventional environment reflects a real salon atmosphere, not only to help students prepare for their tests, but to help them build confidence in their knowledge and begin work right after graduation. Other than teaching solely the required skills in each trade, our curriculum incorporates communication skills, business knowledge, and many opportunities for continued education.  

Our incredible staff has helped students improve their study habits, comprehension, test-taking skills, and practical skills in all areas of Cosmetology. As a result, students gain more than fundamental knowledge—they gain unwavering confidence and motivation to succeed in their respective fields of study. 



Due to state-wide school closings, Queen Beauty Institute will not be accepting tour appointments until mid-May. Please click below to contact us on Facebook! Thank you for your patience.
