With Sola, You Can Have it All image

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?” - Marianne Williamson 

Sometimes it feels like we have to choose… a thriving career or a fulfilling personal life? Creative time or business development? More time with the family or more clients in the chair? 

Why live life by those limiting beliefs? We have a different way of looking at it, well, because at Sola, you can have it all! 


At Sola, we know that beauty professionals are more than hairdressers, nail technicians, massage therapists, estheticians, eyelash and eyebrow artists. You are parents, partners, sisters, brothers, friends, community leaders, educators, students, creators, and so much more. Living a multifaceted life requires independence to operate on your own terms. We get that. 

Being an independent salon owner at Sola means experiencing the freedom and flexibility to set your own schedule and live the life you love – in and out of the salon. But at Sola, it’s more than just creating an ideal work-life balance.  

At Sola, it’s about becoming your own boss, and the boss of your life, to truly have it all. It’s about stepping into your brilliance so that you can share your gifts and talents with the world in a way that feels energizing, empowering and supportive. 

Make 2022 the year that you make the breakthrough into independent salon ownership. Sola provides guidance and support every step of the way to make the upgrade simple and seamless.

Sola provides an easy transition to salon ownership with…

Take it from Sola stylist and 2021 Face of Sola, Hunter Donia, “Sola has fully changed my life in so many ways. I was discouraged and close to considering a different career prior to opening up my suite. With the support of Sola, I was able to open with such a strong start. I continue to wow my clients with the private, one-on-one experience I’m able to give them - and wow myself, family and friends with the freedom and business I've created within Sola.”
