Break out of the rental-chair rut and embrace your entrepreneurial dreams in a luxurious IMAGE salon space for rent in Columbus, Ohio.
We’ve been in the business of empowering beauty professionals since 2009. That’s when our founder, Jason Olsen, decided he’d seen too many talented and skilled pros toiling away in someone else’s salon, limiting their services and fees, then forking over a chunk of their earnings every month. He had a vision of how to break the paradigm of isolation and drudgery — by creating a community of mini-salon owners working together in a luxuriously high-end space, sharing resources and experience, bringing their best every day to an area bursting with potential.
That’s how IMAGE Salon Suites was born, and today we’re seeing success blossom across the country from Beaverton, Oregon to Plymouth, Massachusetts to Waukesha, Wisconsin to Boca Raton, Florida. Our day-to-day support and educational opportunities pave the way for your personal and professional expansion as you beautify the world.
At IMAGE Studios, you’re not just another employee or freelancer — you’re a business owner who’s empowered to make decisions and meet challenges with efficiency, professionalism and style!
