Sola Salon Mount Pleasant Now Open
February 28, 2021
Sola Salon Studios, (Sola), which develops and rents out fully equipped salon spaces for independent salon professionals, opened its newest location in the Mount Pleasant Commerce Center on Globe Drive, just east of I94 and south of Highway 20.
Sola Salon Studios is a franchise company that offers a turnkey solution for hair stylists, estheticians, lash and eyebrow artists, barbers, massage therapists and other professional cosmetologists who want to own their salon businesses. Each beauty pro has her or his independent studio equipped with a shampoo sink and chair, styling chair and cabinets. Each studio can be completely contained with its own sliding/locking door and floor-to-ceiling walls. Additional safety protocols, including social distancing and mandatory masks have been implemented during COVID-19 to keep salon pros and their clients as safe as possible.
Salon professionals have 24-hour access to their studio, allowing them the flexibility to work the hours that are best for them, their families, and clients. They manage their own schedules, personalizing their spaces and set their own prices for services and products in addition to an array of other exciting benefits.
The Mount Pleasant Sola Salon location has 38 high-end, light filled and professionally finished individual salon studio. The franchise is owned by Southeast Wisconsin entrepreneur Roberta Johnson, who opened her first Sola Salon in Kenosha’s Southport Plaza Shopping Center in August of 2019. That location is currently filled while the new Mount Pleasant location is about half full, even before opening its doors.
“We’re thrilled to have a new home in the Racine/Mount Pleasant area in the beautiful new Mount Pleasant Commerce Center,” Johnson said. “The pandemic has hit the beauty industry hard, and I’m glad we can offer a helping hand to salon professionals who want to be their own boss. Sola’s unique layout and design allows beauty pros to maintain the best social distancing possible and control what happens inside their own, private studio.”
Johnson said Sola Salon Studios' helps aspiring salon owners take the fear and guesswork out of launching a salon business with comprehensive start-up support and tools that simplified the entrepreneurial process. “We like to say that with Sola, you’re in business for yourself, but not by yourself.”
