Our Team

In 2009, Jason Olsen saw potential to disrupt the traditional salon industry with a new and innovative business model that would change the way established salon professionals owned and operated their businesses. After many late-night meetings, phone calls, road trips across the country (and sketches on who knows how many napkins), IMAGE Studios® was born. He teamed up with his brother Shaun, and engaged the help of industry pro, Megan Oviatt to help create the first IMAGE Studios® located in Draper, Utah. As IMAGE Studios® continued to develop and grow, we quickly identified our core values of creativity, freedom, and success. There is an entire universe filled with values, but these core values truly embody everything we do at IMAGE Studios®. They guide our company and define our culture, they help explain why we do business the way we do, they guide us in making decisions, and they articulate what we stand for. These core values resonate with each person who is part of the IMAGE Studios® family, which is why we find such a close connection with each of our salon professionals.

Our Mission Statement

IMAGE Studios® is an exclusive franchise that provides modern, high-end salon studios at affordable rates to salon professionals. Our core values of creativity, freedom and success are the driving forces that empower us collectively and embody all that we do as professionals in this industry. We strive to improve the communities we live in with the creation, support and growth of independent franchisees across the country. Our concept is simple: we provide an incredible space an atmosphere through our franchise system; our people bring the passion, talent and clientèle to their space. Together, we create an intoxicating formula for success.
