Everything you need to know about sola

Our mission at Sola is to inspire beauty professionals to chase their dreams, elevate their careers and experience the freedom of salon ownership.

It's common in the beauty industry to find yourself at a career crossroads, especially after an unexpected global pandemic. The traditional salon you were working in may have closed down or you may be looking for a safer, more private environment for you and your guests. But opening a storefront salon may not be feasible due to financial burden and other risks and responsibilities that come with opening a brick-and-mortar salon. 

At Sola, we make salon ownership simple! When you join the Sola family, you're in business for yourself, but you are never by yourself because we provide the space, support and resources you need to set yourself up for success.

So, what exactly is Sola?

Sola Salon Studios is the largest, fastest-growing salon studio franchise that leases move-in-ready, one and two-chair salon studios to independent beauty professionals.

As a Sola professional, you are in control of your own business, keep 100 percent of your profits, and have complete freedom to choose your salon name, hours, online booking and salon management technology, pricing, services, products, décor, music, clientele and more!

Imagine 20 to 40 boutique salons all under one roof. That's the magic of Sola! 

Of course, there are other salon suite concepts out there. But what sets Sola apart? 

Sola Support

Whether it's the Sola Blog, the Sola Stories Podcast, free virtual education, in-person education at the Sola Sessions, or our exclusive industry deals and partnerships, we offer an array of robust education for our Sola professionals to support your continued career growth.

We also provide you with a comprehensive start-up manual, chock-full of everything you need to know to get your business up and running - from licensing documents, tax information, marketing tips and so much more!
