Do you want your own salon? It’s never been easier!

A re-invention of traditional salon ownership, Salon Studios makes it possible for all independent hair & beauty professionals to run their own salon business and make more money without the risks associated with owning a conventional salon… all for the same rate as a chair rental (and often less).

Our mission is to provide high quality, stylish individual salon spaces to professionals who want to own and operate their own business. You can run your own business and control your own work environment without the high financial investment and risk associated with opening a traditional salon.

Forget about working in a place where somebody else calls all the shots - a place with limitations - too many limitations on your time, creativity, working hours and too many rules. This is your place to make the rules - you can be bold, be the boss and see your vision come to life.

We have created stylish & modern spaces with everything you need to successfully run your own salon at affordable prices with flexible terms.

Join a community of experienced hair & beauty specialists who enjoy all the benefits of owning a Salon without the risks and high overheads. This is perfect for you if you are looking to launch your own hair or beauty salon but don’t know where to start? Or maybe you don’t have the funds to get it up and running? We take all the hassles of traditional salon ownership away and make it easy for you with a weekly fixed payment. All you need to bring is your products and clients and we provide the rest!

Salon Studios are perfect for those who are ready to try out running their own salon before planning to move on to a larger salon, or for salon owners who no longer want the hassles associated with salon management… and everybody in between! This is the perfect solution.

“What appealed to me was the private space to be with a client on a one on one basis and work alongside other amazing professionals as a community of independent salon owners that can support each other.

It is perfect for someone who wants to walk into a functionable salon and start trading straight away.”
— Jennifer Fox, Foxx Hairdressing (Salon Studios Edinburgh)

At Salon Studios you are free to set your own hours, create your own space and run your own business. Our Salon Studios come with tools that make running a business simple, so you're free to spend your time doing what you do best: making the world more beautiful, one client at a time.

We are looking for the best of the best - people who will be part of our positive and supportive community. Our culture is based around support, encouragement and positivity and we will be providing training sessions on the business side of salons (accounts, marketing, etc) as well as more technical skills. Taking a salon at Salon Studios does not stop when you get the key, we are here to offer ongoing support and guidance as and when you need it.

The bottom line - ultimately, you will work less for more money, because you keep 100% of the profits at the hours that suit you. That’s the kind of work-life balance we all need!

Salon Studios Sessions

 

As we are big believers in life-long learning we are excited to offer the Salon Studio Sessions program! These sessions are all about inspiring, motivating and educating our Salon Studio professionals through learning and collaborating with awesome and dynamic partners!

 

From the color of the paint on the walls to the services you offer and the prices you set, everything about your salon is yours to control and make your own.

freedom of design

 We provide you with the basics to get you up and running but if you want to add anything, it's your salon! Choose your colours and amenities.  All we ask is that you return the salon in the condition you found it when you decide to leave (but we don't think you will ever want to leave!).

freedom to choose products & services

You are fully in control of which services you offer and which products you use.  Plus you keep all the profit.

Want to open at 3pm and close at 10pm? Your salon - your decisions!

freedom of ambience

Taylor Swift or Placedo Domingo?  You choose the music and the lighting to suit your mood.  Like to offer your clients a nespresso or Prosecco - do as you please!

Do you only work a few days a week? Speak to us about sharing your Salon! You can either set up with a friend or colleague to split the days or we can introduce you to somebody who is also in the same position. (Note this is limited to a maximum of 2 sharers per Salon).

A final note…

Are you looking for more than a chair rental and want to enjoy the pride and freedom of running your own business? Or are you mobile and just fed up of the logistics and travel? Or perhaps you have your own salon already and just don’t enjoy managing staff?

At Salon Studios we make it easy for you to have your own business and remind you why you went into this industry - to look after clients you love.

We are looking for seriously talented hair & beauty professionals who want to set up on their own. If you would like to have a chat or come in for a tour and see how this is working for our salon partners that are already in place, we would love to hear from you!
