5 Sola Resources to Utilize in 2023 image

It is our mission to empower you to elevate your career as an independent beauty professional and experience the freedom of salon ownership. That’s why we want to make sure you know about all the powerful tools and resources that are available to you as a Sola professional.  

From helping new clients discover you, to streamlining your processes, we are here to help you feel successful in and out of the salon.  

Here are 5 Sola resources to utilize in 2023: 

1. BeautyHive: A Better Way to Stock Your Backbar 

We heard that stocking your backbar as an independent can be complex, inefficient and impersonal. So we teamed up with BeautyHive, an online distributor to save you time and money stocking your salon.  

With most orders* shipped out the same day for free, a variety of the industry’s most popular brands and real-time inventory checks, you can keep your salon stocked without even leaving your chair. Shop for brands like Redken, Olaplex, Pravana, Kenra, Schwarzkopf, Matrix, ColorTrak, Framar, Pulp Riot and more, and get rewards back on every order, no matter how small. 

Together, Sola and BeautyHive have your back (and backbar) covered, so you can focus more on doing what you love. Sign up for a free account and receive Sola-exclusive welcome offer! 

*Free shipping on orders $99+. Orders must be placed by 4pm EST on weekdays to receive same-day shipping. 

2. Game-Changing Education 

Staying educated is crucial if you’re looking for longevity in the beauty industry. But it’s not just about staying up to date on the latest artistic techniques and trends. As an entrepreneur, you also have to be well-versed in business and marketing.

Have you heard? The Sola Sessions are heading to Austin, Texas! Join us on June 18th-20th and engage with the beauty industry's most dynamic and inspiring educators, and connect with your Sola Fam. Tickets go on sale SOON - so keep an eye out on social and email 👀

3. SolaGenius: Your Digital Personal Assistant 

Sola’s all-in-one salon management app is a game-changer for Solapreneurs. Available for just $20/month, SolaGenius will become your new digital personal assistant. Features include 24/7 online booking, a simple calendar interface, automated client reminders, text message marketing, client notes, analytics and reports and reliable customer support. The complimentary White Glove Service will even transfer your current client book (even if it’s pen and paper!) for you in no time (often within 24 hours). Work smarter, not harder with SolaGenius. Start your risk-free 30-day trial. 

4. BookNow: An Easier Way to Get Discovered and Booked 

BookNow is our powerful online search engine to help you get discovered and booked by new clients. We get tons of traffic to our Sola website of people looking for new professionals to book with. With BookNow, you can take advantage of these potential new clients without ever lifting a finger!  

When potential new clients come to our website to search for their next service provider, they can search by location, date, service, and availability and browse our directory of beauty professionals (who use SolaGenius) and book online, 24 hours a day.... The question is: Do you want to be discovered?! 

5. Perkspot: Deals on Everyday Essentials 

Did you know that Sola has a partnership with Perkspot? PerkSpot partners with hundreds of different merchants for exclusive discounts on items ranging from household items, meal delivery services, entertainment, personal care products, and so much more to secure you deals on everyday essentials. 

You can access these deals inside the Sola Pro app by either typing “Perkspot” into the search bar or by clicking “View All” on the homepage under “Shop With Us” and select Perkspot.
