Sola Salon Studios was founded in 2004 with the dream of doing more than designing beautiful, move-in-ready salon studios. Co-founders Stratton Smith and Matt Briger set out to build a thriving community where independent beauty professionals could create a life and career they loved.
From the beginning, Sola has blazed the trail for the independent beauty pro movement by offering customizable studio space, new levels of creative freedom, and support to those who are inspired to make the transition to independent salon ownership.
Above all, we always put our beauty professionals first, and we pride ourselves on the support we provide inside and outside of the studio to help grow our community.
We provide beauty professionals with high-end, fully equipped private salon studios alongside the support and tools needed to launch your business in no time. We take pride in being the largest, fastest-growing salon studio business with a thriving community of over 20,000 industry-leading beauty professionals and 650+ locations nationwide. We provide a safe, inclusive space with unmatched support so our Sola pros can thrive. We have one goal in mind: to set you up for success.
