The Salon Freedom You've Been Looking For image

Thinking of going independent? At Sola, we strive for every salon owner to experience the freedom to create the salon life you love; freedom to pick your own service, products, schedule, music, decor and the freedom to have the work-life balance you've always dreamed of. That's why more than 17,000 beauty professionals have already made the move to Sola. So ask yourself...are you ready to experience the freedom of salon ownership?! 

Here are 8 ways that Sola gives you way more freedom:

  1. Freedom to set your own schedule 📅 Whether you want to work 7 days a week or 2, with 24/7 access to your studio, you have the freedom to be behind the chair (or table) when you want to be! Need a vacation day? No problem. Want to hit the road to educate for your favorite brand? Go for it! Make sure to give yourself plenty of time to spend with friends and family and the time you need to focus on your career goals outside of the salon.
  2. Freedom to choose your products 🧴 As the expert, you can sell the products you believe are best for improving your guests’ beauty and grooming needs and keep 100 percent of the profits. Looking for an easier way to stock your backbar? BeautyHive is a brand new online distributor made specifically for independent salon owners. Unlike a store shopping experience, BeautyHive's same-day shipping, real-time inventory checks and points on every order, make it easier for you to shop your favorite brands like Pravana, Kenra, Redken, Olaplex and more without missing a beat. 
  3. Freedom to focus on the services you love 💆‍♀️ Do you have an affinity for creative color and not such a love for cutting and styling? Remember, at Sola, it’s your service menu! Do what you love and you’ll never “work” a day in your life. Consider partnering up with another Sola owner or two to provide a full-service experience.
  4. Freedom to create your vibe ✨ From your studio décor to creating your own brand, you create the culture of your salon. Create an atmosphere that appeals best to you and your target clientele. Listen to music that inspires your mood and dance to your own tune. Don’t forget…your vibe attracts your tribe!

  5. Freedom to do whatever you want beyond the salon 💯 When you are in control of your career, you can spend more time thinking about what makes you happy! Is it volunteering? Mentoring others and teaching classes? Growing your repertoire with new classes and seminars? Freedom and happiness always spark creativity.
  6. Freedom to surround yourself with people who inspire and motivate you  🙌 As the boss, connect with the guests you enjoy working with, creating deep connections and lasting relationships. And with so many like-minded peers at Sola, professional camaraderie lends itself naturally into personal friendships.
  7. Freedom to control your destiny 🤩 At Sola, you call the shots. No one sets the rules but you. From financial independence to developing your personal brand, every decision is in your hands.
  8. Freedom to be YOU 💙 It’s as simple as that.

When you call the shots and have the freedom to schedule your work life around your personal priorities, you can focus on what’s truly important to you. So go on, enjoy that much deserved Sola freedom. At Sola, freedom and control have never been easier to create for yourself.
