Attention beautiful Colorado lovers! IMAGE Studios® Arapahoe Crossings is coming to Aurora, CO!
If you’re a hairstylist, barber, esthetician, massage therapist, MedSpa pro, nail tech, microblading artist, lash tech or makeup artist living the Rocky Mountain Way — or looking to relocate to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains — we’ve got 22 stunning IMAGE Studios salon suites on the horizon for your next entrepreneurial move!
We make it our business to empower beauty professionals like you with unrivaled support and a community of like-minded colleagues. Get ready to embrace all the benefits of being your own boss in your very own IMAGE Studios salon!
IMAGE Studios is a community of beauty professionals who are independent mini-salon owners, all working together to provide high-end, luxury services to an ever-growing clientele. It’s a concept our founder, Jason Olsen, dreamed up in 2009 as a way of disrupting the traditional beauty business model. He saw way too many talented pros stuck on the rental-chair treadmill — isolated from their colleagues and forced to conform to someone else’s hours, fees and service offerings.
We make it possible for you to become a successful entrepreneur by providing a luxurious and high-end space, like-minded professionals to connect with, and the guidance of mentors who invest in your success.
Why do IMAGE Studios include such a diverse group of beauty professionals? Two reasons: You benefit from your peers’ expertise and industry insight, often sharing clients that need more than one type of beauty treatment. And your clients get the benefit of scheduling multiple services in one visit, like a blowout and manicure — or bringing a group, like a bridal party, for simultaneous beauty services in a vibrant, luxurious environment.
When you work with IMAGE Studios salon suites, we help you start a salon with business support that’s more than just lip service. Your very own IMAGE hair, lash, brow, MedSpa or nail salon in Arapahoe Crossings comes fully equipped with everything you need to begin serving clients on Day One. Your space includes:
With those fixtures in place, your IMAGE Studios salon is ground zero for creating your ideal workspace. Are you motivated to excel when you’re surrounded by lush greenery, eye-catching artwork, vibrant paint colors or sumptuous furnishings? Go crazy and build your unique brand with the décor in your salon. We love watching our entrepreneurs unleash their creativity so much that we reward the most impressive designs with our annual Studio Design Awards. It’s one more way we demonstrate our commitment to helping you achieve success at every step while inspiring newcomers to our beauty collective.
We house all IMAGE Studios salon suites in gorgeous facilities that feature contemporary European design with curved glass walls, modern open ceilings and luxurious fixtures. A facility manager takes mundane tasks off your plate, like making sure the building is secure and the large, onsite restrooms are kept clean. The benefits of renting a salon suite at IMAGE Studios Arapahoe Crossings also include:
As an IMAGE salon suites owner, you also gain access to the IMAGE Pro business education program of live Zoom workshops focused on leveling up your boss skills. Plus, we help you hit the ground running with professionally designed marketing materials, like business cards and grand opening mailers, your own customized website and GlossGenius, the app that impressed us with seamless appointment booking and payment processing.
If you tried to accomplish all that and open a standalone lash, brow, massage, hair or nail salon in Aurora, CO, the costs would be staggering. But with a little support from IMAGE Studios, you’ll be surprised at how quickly and easily you can start spreading joy and beauty in your very own hair, lash or nail salon in Arapahoe Crossing!
The view from Aurora, Colorado is breathtaking! That’s largely because the city’s elevation is 5,471 feet above sea level with surrounding trails climbing as high as 8,000 feet. If you’re looking to put down roots in a big city with a small-community feel, excellent year-round weather, tons of green space and easy access to everything from world-class skiing to cuisines of the world to exotic destinations around the world via Denver International Airport, an IMAGE lash, nail or hair salon in Aurora, CO could be your next big move!
The city covers just over 160 square miles with about 400,000 residents spread comfortably among more than 450 neighborhoods. Some 8,000 acres of that city space is dedicated to natural beauty and outdoor activities. And with moderate year-round temps — summer rarely heats up past the low 80s and winter typically dips only into the 40s — you can expect to enjoy those green spaces in every season without going to extremes!
Hike, bike, roller skate, jog or walk your furry friend on miles of multi-use trails throughout Aurora, many of which feature stunning views of the Rocky Mountains — or drive to the Rockies in about an hour for top-notch skiing and snowboarding opportunities. Locally, Cherry Creek State Park features 35 miles of trails for bikers, hikers and horseback riders organized around an 880-acre reservoir that welcomes adventures of many types. From quiet bird watching to exhilarating jet skiing to winter camping to year-round picnicking — and even model airplane flying on the paved runways, taxiways, pit area and separate rotocraft area of Sahuka Field — there’s something for every al fresco sensibility here.
Both avid and casual golfers note the multitude of golf courses in Aurora, including five public courses with the lowest green fees in the region. Sporty families love the Aurora Sports Park where they can cheer on their budding young athletes on 27 multi-use fields and 12 baseball fields. The park also offers playgrounds, concession areas and picnic shelters for team celebrations and group events.
Your IMAGE Studios salon is located in Arapahoe Crossings, a huge shopping destination that’s easy to access directly from State Highway 83. Neighboring businesses include Orangetheory Fitness, Kohl’s, Dunkin’ Donuts, King Soopers, AMC Theaters and more. Expect more than 8,000 daily visitors to this popular center, making it fabulously situated for building your clientele and creating your brand identity.
Ethnic diversity underscores Aurora’s family-friendly environment with rich cultural and culinary options. Broaden your palate at more than 250 ethnic eateries and markets, take in a live theater performance at the Aurora Fox Arts Center, and find unique public art displayed all over the city.
The cost of living in Aurora is lower than other cities in the Greater Denver metro area — which connects to locals via light rail and commuter rail lines. That connection puts you within minutes of an MLB game at Coors Field, a Broncos game at Empower Field at Mile High, a concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, an edifying day at Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum and so much more.
All these diversions plus good schools, a wide range of housing options and a thriving economy driven by major employers like UCHealth make renting a salon space with IMAGE Studios in Aurora a beautiful choice for your personal and professional future.
