How Much Does It Cost To Rent A Salon Suite?

IMAGE Studios is the leader in luxury salon suites for health, wellness, and beauty professionals looking to open their own business safely, easily, and affordably. Our salon suite business model is an attractive lifestyle business that’s simple, stable, and scalable. First-time entrepreneurs and experienced business owners alike can benefit from this incredible opportunity.

IMAGE Studios is a salon suite franchise that offers beautiful salon suites for hairstylists, barbers, estheticians, nail artists, lash artists, eyebrow threaders, massage therapists, and other beauty professionals who want to launch their own businesses without the typical upfront investment required for a traditional salon or spa. Our business model is a lot like coworking spaces such as WeWork, Regus, or Office Evolution, but instead of office suites, we built turnkey salon suites.

The weekly rental cost for a salon suite can vary significantly depending on the city and location. In major metropolitan areas like Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Dallas, Miami, Houston, San Antonio, or Philadelphia, rates can range from $325 to $800 or more per week, depending on the size and location of the suite. In cities such as Denver, St. Louis, Raleigh, Salt Lake City, Charlotte, Pittsburgh, Newark, Columbus, Cincinnati, or Beaverton, rates might vary from $275 to $550 or more per week. In smaller markets like Reno or Boise, hair stylists and other beauty professionals can expect to pay anywhere from $225 to $450 or more per week for a salon studio.

As mentioned earlier, location plays a significant role in determining what a beauty professional will pay each week for a salon suite. Prime locations with high foot traffic, such as popular shopping centers in cities with a high cost of living, will generally have higher rental rates.

While larger suites tend to be more expensive than smaller ones, there are cost-effective options available for beauty professionals on a budget. Some professionals opt to rent a larger suite and share the cost with a friend or coworker who works a different schedule. Most beauty professionals will sign a 12 or 24 month lease agreement before they can move into a salon suite.

Compared to other national salon suite brands like Sola, My Salon Suite, Phenix Salon Suites, Salon Lofts, Salon Republic, or Salons by JC, IMAGE Studios stands out by providing the best in design and amenities. Our salon suites are the most luxurious in the country, making us the number one choice for beauty professionals. Our all-inclusive rent rates range from $225 to $800 or more per week, depending on the size and location of the suite. These rates include essential benefits such as a stunning and spacious lobby, high-end design and finishes, luxurious seating and lighting, and even upscale restrooms. We furnish our suites with top-quality furniture and equipment, custom high-quality millwork, built-in color bars and storage areas, built-in hand sinks, and beautiful sliding glass doors.

    The spreadsheet below is an active document that you can edit yourself. If you make a mistake or want to start over just refresh this webpage. NOTE: All cells shaded in red in columns B, C & D are cells that you input with your own information – everything else will automatically calculate for you.

    To get started, input the name of your service in column B, as well as the current price that you charge in column c. Under “Avg # Services/Mo” in column D you will input the number of these services you do on average each month. The row below it is to input your anticipated additional # of services you will be doing in the future. If you do not see yourself increase the # of this service in the future just leave it the same as your current monthly # of services.

    The differences that are displayed under “Monthly Revenue” & “Yearly Revenue” tell you what kind of additional money you would earn as a result of the price increase you put in. Play around with this handy spreadsheet to see what kind of money you could be making by increasing the price of some of your more popular services. You’ll be surprised at how small increases in just a few of your services will equate to thousands of dollars of additional income at the end of the year.
