Sola Salon Studios opened in July in a 4,800-square-foot space in the Belle Foods shopping center. The company, which is based out of Denver, lets local hairdressers, manicurists, pedicurists, estheticians, cosmetologists and massage therapists rent their own independent salon studios.
The salon will offer 24 separate studios, each independent of the other.
“Instead of renting a booth or a chair and paying commission to a salon owner, we let people have their own studio with no drama and 24/7 access,” Franchise Owner King Rogers said.
Sola Salon Studios decided to come to Birmingham because of Hoover’s high salon density. Rogers is confident that the shopping center is in good hands.
“I am somewhat familiar with the landlord, and he is committed to transforming it into a class A shopping center,” he said.
At the time of opening, Sola Salon Studios was 70 percent leased out, a good sign for their future. For more, call Rogers at 440-2664.
