At IMAGE Studios 360, we’re not just passionate about beauty — we’re igniting a revolution. In 2009, our visionary founder, Jason Olsen, set out to transform the beauty industry. He had seen countless skilled professionals get stuck in the rental-chair treadmill, relinquishing control over their services, fees and hours. He dreamed of a better way, a collective of beauty professionals working side-by-side in luxurious salon spaces, sharing industry insight and resources while supporting each other on the path to success.
IMAGE Studios was born from his vision of helping beauty pros like yourself experience the transformative freedom of being your own boss. 💰 We’re a dynamic community of mini-salon owners sharing opulent spaces, boundless inspiration and a bright future of unlimited achievement.

An IMAGE hair, nail or lash salon in Boulder, CO could be right for you if you value:
Boulder residents love being outdoors, partly because this city enjoys 300-plus days of sunshine a year. It was one of the first cities in the U.S. to tax residents for the preservation and management of open, undeveloped land. That foresight has ensured protection for and easy visitor access to some 45,000 wild acres of forest, mountains, plains and wetlands. 🏔️
Some call it “the Boulder bubble” — an affluent city of just over 100,000 people encircled by open space and rural land where new construction is limited. The strikingly reddish-brown sandstone formations known as the Flatirons mark the western edge of this city’s verdant valley, and the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains protects it from most of the heavier winter snowfall, though snowy peaks are typically visible in the distance.
Bicycle enthusiasts will feel right at home here, where an abundance of bike paths, cycling clubs and bike rental businesses make two wheels a favored form of transportation. Mountain bikers can enjoy 54 miles of designated trails throughout the city’s Open Space and Mountain Parks with ratings from flat and easy to heart-poundingly challenging. 🚴
The entire city of Boulder is incredibly pedestrian-friendly with miles of multi-use paths, hiking trails and a reliable public transit system that features bike racks on all the buses, naturally.
Whether you’re into rock climbing at Boulder Canyon, fishing or backpacking at nearby Eldorado Canyon or challenging yourself to gain more than 1,300 feet of elevation in a hike up Mount Sanitas, this gorgeous valley is where you belong.
Did you know that Boulder was home to Colorado’s very first microbrewery back in 1979? 🤯There are now over 20 breweries in Boulder — five right smack-dab in the Pearl Street Mall (more on that in a moment). The city boasts the fourth-highest concentration of breweries per capita in the country — bested by nearby Fort Collins in third place. In fact, there are so many places to sample craft brews around Boulder, Fort Collins and Denver that it might be referred to as the “Napa Valley of Beer.”
As an entrepreneur, you’re honing your skills and learning new things every day. That progressive attitude fits right into Boulder’s culture of social-consciousness and personal improvement. It’s been home to the well-respected public University of Colorado since 1860, and the Colorado Chautauqua Association continues to support a wide range of music, arts and educational opportunities in the region while preserving its historic site that was once the Batchelder Ranch.
Boulder County was the first in the state to issue same-sex marriage licenses in 1975, and the city remains committed to LGBTQ+ inclusivity. 🏳️🌈 The hippie movement thrived here throughout the 1970s, and that freewheeling spirit lives on in dozens of local cannabis dispensaries.
The city of Boulder is a haven for startups and entrepreneurs, with Techstars Accelerator incubating technology innovators and heavy hitters like Lockheed Martin, IBM and Google headquartered here. 🖥️
Boulder residents tend to be highly educated and forward-thinking. The city is home to the National Center for Atmospheric Research, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Ball Aerospace & Technologies spacecraft company and several outdoor gear innovators, including La Sportiva and Sierra Designs. It’s also home to our nation’s highest per capita concentration of B corps — aka socially and environmentally responsible companies — such as Namaste Solar and Conscious Coffees.
Boulder is populated by young professionals and creative entrepreneurs – like you! – as well as families attracted by local schools that consistently rank among the best in the state. It was named the No. 1 Best Place to Live by U.S. News & World Report in 2020 (it’s now No. 4), and National Geographic has recognized it as the “Happiest City in the U.S.” Nestled among more than 30 miles of affluent communities in a naturally dramatic setting, Boulder offers a small-town feel with big-city amenities well within reach.
The pedestrian-only Pearl Street Mall is just a short bike ride or walk from your IMAGE salon to the other side of the leafy CU Boulder campus. This four-block pedestrian mall forms the heart of downtown Boulder, where more than 120 retailers make shopping local easy and fun. 🛍️ The city hosts events all year, like Pearl Street Stampedes the night before every CU Buffaloes home football game with performances by both the Golden Buffalo marching band and the Colorado Spirit team. Explore the Boulder Beer Trail featuring six stops right in the walking mall, try a flight of silky made-from-scratch gelato at Gelato Boy or hang with your pals and pups on the patio at Illegal Pete’s while enjoying a burrito smothered with house-made signature queso.
Denver International Airport is a mere 40-minute drive – or about an hour-and-a-half bus ride with one transfer – from the IMAGE salons in Boulder. This major hub of United Airlines and main operating base for both Frontier and Southwest airlines hosts some 1,600 flights a day and offers nonstop travel to destinations as far-flung as The Bahamas, Tokyo, Cayman Islands and Zurich. 🗺️
Plus, Boulder itself is a destination for the good people of surrounding Front Range towns, like Louisville, Lafayette, Superior and Broomfield — all looking for top-notch diverse beauty services from skilled pros like yourself! All this makes Boulder the perfect place to build clientele and create brand identity in your very own IMAGE Studios salon suite.
