The concept of a salon studio is one that seems to be making more of an impact in the beauty industry. Sola Salon Studios are a prime example of this rising popularity, as more and more stylists rent the space to work from a provider like Sola.
This past month Sola Salon Studios reached a milestone like no other with 5,000 salon owners in 230 locations nationwide.
“Being able to give the American dream to thousands of stylists has been the most rewarding business endeavor we’ve ever done,” said Stratton Smith, co-founder of Sola Salon Studios. “It’s all about experiencing the freedom to live the life you love.”
Sola Salon Studios offer a space where the stylist can escape and work in tranquility. Every stylist is able to decorate their space as they wish, they get the freedom to choose their schedule, select the retail they want to offer and decide on the prices.
“Professionally, it has really opened my mind to the business aspect, in that, I can focus on my client without interruptions of loud talking and gain serenity,” said Debbie McRoberts, owner of H202 Salon in Lake Oswego, Oregon. “I have been more motivated to work at Sola since I love my surroundings. If you are truly happy, it shows, and your clients will be happy.”
Supporting salon professionals is Sola’s mission by truly providing a professional environment for stylists, colorists, massage therapists and estheticians. This past year Sola Salons grew 30%, which means 30% more beauty professionals all dedicated to beauty as independent entrepreneurs who are part of Sola Salon Studios.
