IMAGE Studios®, a leader in the salon and spa studio space, has opened its newest location in North Raleigh, NC by IMAGE Owner, Kevin McNamara. IMAGE is part of a burgeoning trend in the beauty business, which leases turnkey salon suites to beauty professionals looking to open their own business, empowering entrepreneurship and growth in the growing $63 billion beauty industry.
Leading the trend in the creative coworking space boom, IMAGE Studios® operates similarly to WeWork, Regis, and Impact Hub, with a focus on turnkey salon space for beauty professionals.
