“Since owning my own salon suite, I have the freedom of being in control of my own schedule and spending more time with my family. I’ve been able to create a safe place for my guests with a one-on-one service and make it more personal without all the background noise. I love my Sola.”

I am excited to learn more about the business side of salon ownership and value different types of education to help me elevate my career.
In addition to technical and trend education, you prioritize amping up your business acumen.
“Sola provides an endless amount of resources to help get your business started and keep it growing. They have an app dedicated just to Sola pros where you can access blogs, webinars, education, The Sola Stories Podcast, exclusive deals on products—the list goes on and on.” —Kim Pags, @journee_stylingsalon
Working in an intimate environment where I can spend one-on-one time with my clients is important to me and my guests, and I like the idea of being able to control who comes in and out of my salon space.
Safety and personal space has climbed to the top of the priority list for many people—and you value the privacy and comfort of your guests.
“At Sola, I get to create a custom experience for my clients and myself. With my suite, I get to live life and run my business on my own terms.” —Carlisha Duffey, @ sgnaturalhairstudio
Keeping 100% of the profits I earn is a priority for me.
Whether you bring in $10,000 or $100,000, you want to keep what you make, and you want to be in charge of where that money is spent.
“My favorite part of owning my own salon suite is that I'm very close to being a six-figure hairstylist. I am able to collect all the profits and I get to decide what to do with those dollars.” —Tish Clark, @phormula708studio
I am eager to brand and market my own salon business and control my clients’ experience from start to finish.
You want the freedom to be yourself and attract the clients you want to work with. Whether you bring clients with you or build your base with the help of Sola’s community and marketing support, you want everything about your salon to be reflective of your target audience.
“My favorite part of owning a salon suite is being able to provide my guests with a relaxing and personal experience where they are the center of attention. I’m able to customize their experience through the products I use, the music I play, the decor I choose and most of all the time I can confidently dedicate to them, without feeling rushed or neglecting crucial points of difference.” —Serina Battaglini, @serina_styles
I’m comfortable using technology to run my business, and it’s important to have access to cutting-edge platforms.
