A Franchise That Fits Your Life, Your Style®

Sola has paved the way for the salon studios concept. But our real passion isn’t hair—it’s real estate. Our rental model enables franchisees to manage minimal employees while empowering beauty professionals to follow their dreams.

Right from the start, you’ll receive unparalleled support because we believe in setting up you and your tenants for success. Our franchise owners receive unmatched benefits in market analysis and site selection, training, technology-driven business tools, construction and design, marketing materials and continuous learning.

Whether you are new to franchising or a seasoned multi-unit franchise operator who wants to diversify while helping entrepreneurs live their best lives, we think our system may be perfect for you.

“It’s a very seamless process with Sola.”
—Scott Ditsworth, Franchise Owner, Los Angeles, CA and Detroit, MI

A Compelling, Innovative Model

Investors repeatedly turn to Sola because of simple operations, low labor, no inventory or receivables, and attractive unit level economics. We’re exceptionally proud of our franchise system. With largely predictable expenses and recurring rent, owning a Sola franchise is an appealing investment.

“It’s allowed me to broaden my investment scope and focus on a bigger picture.”
—Shay Stevenson, Franchise Owner, San Diego, CA

“I chose Sola over other business opportunities because of the family-friendly hours, because of the return on investment that I saw and because of the fact that this industry is a relatively recession-resistant industry.”
