If you’re a barber seeking to launch your own business and open your own barbershop you likely have three choices to consider: booth rental, renting a salon suite, or opening a brick-and-mortar barbershop. Booth rental is becoming less and less popular every year, and the cost of opening a traditional barbershop is extremely high. As a business owner, you’ll also need to manage other barbers and personnel, monitor profitability, and assume the risks that come with running a business with multiple moving parts.
Salon suites have become increasingly popular due to their combination of independence and ease of management. In the last decade, over 2,000 salon suites have opened nationwide to meet the growing demand for turnkey beauty spaces. Barbers have also been a growing group within the salon suite industry as many barbers are realizing it’s much safer and easier to open their barbershop as a sole proprietor rather than taking on a big investment and managing employees, which also takes them away from their craft and puts them into the office instead of behind the chair.
When choosing a salon suite to rent, it’s important to select one that reflects your expertise and experience. IMAGE Studios is the top choice for beauty professionals and barbers and hair stylists, offering numerous benefits, including:
Cost savings: Renting a salon suite is often more affordable than renting retail space in a strip mall or shopping center, as you only pay for your own space. This can be especially attractive for new businesses or those just starting out.
Flexibility: Salon suites offer more flexible lease terms compared to traditional leases. IMAGE Studios also allows you to share a studio with another professional.
Opportunity to create your own brand: As a salon suite entrepreneur, you have full control over your schedule, pricing, and services offered. You can choose your own clients and build your own client base, rather than being assigned clients by a salon owner. This allows you to create a unique brand and identity for your business.
Ability to grow: When you start your own business at a salon suite like IMAGE Studios, you are located in a high-traffic salon with a diverse range of professionals, including estheticians, nail artists, makeup artists, massage therapists, eyebrow threaders, and permanent makeup artists. By networking with other beauty pros, you can potentially receive referrals and vice versa, providing valuable opportunities for growth.
Access to amenities: Many salon suites come equipped with basic amenities like chairs and mirrors, saving you time and cost in setting up your own workspace. Some salon suites may also offer additional amenities like a reception area or private bathroom, making your business more efficient and convenient for you and your clients.
In conclusion, IMAGE Studios can be a great choice for ambitious hair stylists seeking to start their own business. It offers cost savings, flexibility, the opportunity to create your own brand, and access to amenities that can make your business more efficient and convenient.

Here are a few reasons why IMAGE Studios is the perfect fit for your lash business:

This can be especially appealing for new businesses or those just starting out.
Flexibility: A salon suite offers greater flexibility with shorter lease terms than traditional leases. IMAGE Studios also allows you the flexibility of sharing a studio with another professional.
Freedom to build your own brand: As a salon suite owner, you have complete control over your schedule, pricing, and services offered. You can choose your own clients and build your own clientele, rather than being assigned clients by a salon owner. This allows you to create a unique brand and identity for your business.
The ability to grow your business: When you open your own lash business at a salon suite such as IMAGE Studios, you are locating your business in a high traffic salon suite.

Access to amenities: Many salon suites come equipped with basic amenities like chairs and mirrors, which can save you the time and cost of setting up your own workspace. Some salon suites may also offer additional amenities like a reception area or a private bathroom, which can be convenient for both you and your clients.

Medical esthetics professionals, including Botox injection specialists, have seen a significant increase in popularity in recent years. Botox is a cosmetic treatment that involves the injection of botulinum toxin into the skin to temporarily smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. The popularity of this treatment can be attributed to several factors, including its ease, affordability, and effectiveness. Because of the growing consumer demand around medical esthetics, salon suites like IMAGE Studios have seen a tremendous increase in the number of medical esthetics entrepreneurs who have decided to open their business at IMAGE Studios.
One of the main reasons for the growth in popularity of Botox is its convenience. The treatment takes only a few minutes to complete, and there is no downtime required. This allows individuals to receive the treatment during their lunch break or in between other appointments and return to their daily activities immediately.
Another factor contributing to the popularity of Botox is its affordability. The cost of Botox injections has become more accessible, making it a viable option for a larger portion of the population. Additionally, the treatment results can last for several months, providing value for the cost.
Botox is also a highly effective cosmetic treatment. It has been proven to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, giving individuals a more youthful and refreshed appearance. The results are visible within days of the treatment and can last for several months.
The growth in popularity of Botox has also been driven by advancements in medical esthetics. New techniques and technologies have been developed to ensure the safe and effective administration of Botox injections. This has led to a wider range of individuals seeking the treatment and has increased the demand for trained medical esthetic professionals.
IMAGE Studios projects over the next 10 years that medical esthetics will become a substantial part of the salon suite industry because salon suites allow medical professionals offering these services to open their business in a “Beauty Mall” where anywhere from 25 to 45 other beauty professionals such as hair stylists, nail and lash artists, and estheticians operate out of, bringing in a steady stream of potential clients each and every day. When it pays to locate your business in a high traffic area full of potential clients, there’s no better choice than IMAGE Studios.
Congratulations to IMAGE Owners, Rich & Lori Murphy on their beautiful build-out in Massachusetts! The hard work and dedication that they have put into this endeavor have truly paid off. Check out this amazing space!
This marks yet another milestone in the growth of our franchise family, with over 200 IMAGE Studios® locations in development throughout the United States. Plymouth is our latest success story, and we couldn’t be more excited!
Are you a hairstylist, barber, esthetician, nail artist, lash artist, eyebrow threader, massage therapist, or other beauty professional looking for the perfect salon suite to rent to start your own business? Well, you’re in luck because IMAGE Studios is the premier salon suite brand in the country with locations in 24 states (and growing). We’ve outlined some information below that will help you make the best decision for your business.
The cost of renting a salon suite can vary quite a bit depending on where you live. If you’re looking to rent a salon suite in a big city like New York City, LA, Miami, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, or Philadelphia, you might be looking at rates ranging anywhere from $325 to $800 per week or more depending on the size and location of your salon suite. If you’re looking to rent a salon suite in cities such as Denver, St Louis, Raleigh, Salt Lake City, Atlanta, Ft Lauderdale, Pittsburgh, Newark, Columbus, Cincinnati, or Las Vegas, rates might vary anywhere from $275 to $550 or more per week. If you’re in smaller markets such as Reno or Boise you can expect to pay anywhere from $225 to $450 or more per week for a salon studio.
So, what else can affect the cost of a salon suite?
Location is a big factor. If you’re in a prime spot with lots of foot traffic or in a popular shopping center, you can expect to pay a bit more for rent. Similarly, if you’re in a city with a high cost of living, the rental rates might be higher.
Size also matters when it comes to salon suite rentals. A larger suite will be more expensive than a smaller one, but it can be a more cost-effective option to rent a larger suite if you plan on sharing the space with other professionals.
And don’t forget about amenities! At IMAGE Studios you get the most amenities for your money compared to Sola, My Salon Suite, Phenix Salon Suites, or Salons by JC. IMAGE Studios salon suites are the most luxurious salon suites in the country, which is why we’re the number one choice for beauty professionals. Our all-inclusive rent rates can vary anywhere from $250 to $800 per week or more depending on size and location, and includes important benefits such as a spacious lobby, high-end design and finishes, luxury seating and lighting, even upscale restrooms. Take a peek inside your salon suite and you’ll see that we’ve spared no expense to bring you the very best furniture and equipment like a luxury shampoo station, custom high quality millwork, built in color bar, built in hand sinks, and beautiful sliding glass doors.

Most importantly, when you’re embarking on opening your own salon, it’s important to go with the best salon suite if you want to level up in your career and charge higher prices, set your own hours, and enjoy the freedom of being your own boss. There’s no time like now to take the leap to become an entrepreneur. This is why more beauty professionals choose IMAGE Studios, the number one salon suite brand.

IMAGE Studios is excited to announce that on November 3, 2022, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf signed Senate Bill 1287 (SB 1287) into law, which sets new regulations for the floor space of licensed salons in the state. According to the new law, a salon operated by one licensed cosmetologist must have a minimum working area of 120 square feet with a minimum width of 10 feet. Additionally, for each additional cosmetologist working in the salon, an additional 60 square feet of space is required.
Previously, a law passed on May 3, 1933, commonly referred to as the “Cosmetology Law,” had been in effect in Pennsylvania. This law mandated that salon facilities in the state must have a minimum of 180 square feet of space, with an additional 60 square feet required for each additional cosmetologist. These square footage requirements made it challenging for salon suites to operate in the state, as they had to be built larger than necessary, increasing the cost of opening new locations and meeting the surging demand for salon suites.
IMAGE Studios founder and CEO Jason Olsen said, “It’s exciting to see the great state of Philadelphia adopt more modern rules and regulations surrounding the salon suite industry after many years of hard work. We’re happy to celebrate all the hard work that went into this huge success. This will ultimately provide more affordable space to beauty professionals who are interested in opening their own salon safely and easily at a salon suite in Pennsylvania.”
In Philadelphia there are over 40 salon suite locations in operation that provide coworking suites to over 1,400 entrepreneurial beauty professionals. The most significant players in the industry include well known brands such as Sola, My Salon Suite, IMAGE Studios, and Phenix Salon Suites.
IMAGE Studios has numerous locations currently in operation in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, with plans to further develop locations in those two cities as well as in Lancaster, Harrisburg, and Allentown. Contact us today to find out what development opportunities are available near you.
IMAGE Studios is thrilled to announce that it has awarded 200 locations in 24 states across the country, which is a significant growth milestone for the brand. The company is the leading luxury brand in the salon suite industry nearly doubling its operating units in the past six months and has been recognized by numerous industry accolades. IMAGE Studios was ranked 238 on the 2022 Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies, won the top Stevie award for Workplace Design, and was named one of Inc.
