Sola Salon Studios
In March of 2020, the world unexpectedly turned upside down. Salons across the globe were forced to shut down, and as we embrace what’s on the other side of reopening, we are adjusting to a new way of being and a new way of interacting in salons. There are new sanitation requirements, different expectations from consumers, and no one is exempt from this major adjustment. At Sola, our 500+ locations in the United States, Canada and Brazil are all feeling the impact of the new world we find ourselves living in.
As we adjust to this new normal, now, more than ever, you need a salon that's going to work for you. Whether you are looking for total control of your salon environment, less to space to manage and sanitize on a regular basis, or a way to help you and your clients feel more comfortable upon reentering the world, a private studio at Sola - with floor-to-ceiling walls and doors - may be the perfect place for you.
At Sola, we lease one and two-chair salon studios, providing you with a totally private, controlled environment for you and your clients. You control the policies, procedures, hours and cleanliness in a space where you can do what you love. With nearly 16 years of experience and 15,000 independent salon owners, we make the transition to salon ownership seamless by providing move-in-ready salon studios alongside all the educational resources, cutting-edge technology and support you need to operate your own salon business.

The rewards of being in business for yourself are priceless, but that doesn't mean you have to do it all alone! We offer all the tools and support you need to work smarter and not harder. At Sola, we have learned what makes independent salon owners successful and have created programs to help our community succeed, including:
"The bottom line was (and still is!) that Sola wanted me to be successful in this new venture - and they made the entire transition seamless. When I signed the lease for my studio, I was in charge, but I certainly was not alone. I had help every step of the way. I was encouraged, I felt an immediate sense of community, and I felt empowered - empowered to make this all my own and to move forward! Sola has my back, and they have truly cared about me growing my business and succeeding." - Ashley White, Ashley White Studio
