|LOVE – please share the love! Why did you choose Image Studios 360? What do you love about being at Image Studios 360?|
|The majority of my career behind the chair has been spent in a traditional salon environment. Booth renting comes with various challenges that just don’t apply with the Image Studios concept, who’s responsible for laundry, cleaning, color bowls. The little things that over time can become infuriating.
The freedom. To retail the products I believe in, to conduct my business in a fashion that is uniquely Jared Gomez. Is it for everyone? No, but that’s the beauty of having an individual suite–it doesn’t have to be and its not stepping on anyone else’s toes and vice versa!
