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.
