From the very foundations, Sola’s mission is to inspire and support beauty professionals to chase their dreams, elevate their careers, and experience the freedom of salon ownership.  

We focus on what's best for you, so you can focus on what's best for your business.  

Make 2023 YOUR YEAR for Community…

You will learn from the best of the Sola pros through online and in-person Sola resources, including the Sola Sessions educational conferences, training webinars and online forums connecting the community.  

At your local Sola location, you will interact with beauty professionals with similar goals and lifestyles, making that community investment all the more supportive and worthwhile. While you can enjoy a private and serene space to see clients and work, you can open your beautiful floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors and socialize with your Sola community any time.  

Sola beauty professionals often express gratitude for the ability to run their own business independently, while also having their needs for connection met by the Sola community:
