If you are looking at buying a salon suite franchise you have most likely spent some time online researching some of the different brands out there. The major brands in the salon suite industry include IMAGE Studios, Sola Salon Studios, My Salon Suite, Phenix Salon Suites, Salon Lofts, and Salons by JC. The salon suite industry has been around for a few years with the first concepts in Dallas, Texas starting around 30 years ago. Over the past decade the industry has grown from approximately 350 salon suite locations to over 3,300 locations today. On average each salon suite location houses anywhere from 25 to 35 salon “suites” or “studios” with 30-50 beauty professional renters or “tenants”, making the number of salon professionals in salon suites grow from 12,250 a decade ago to over 110,000 today.
