In 2009 brothers Jason Olsen & Shaun Olsen began discussing the possibility of creating a co-working salon space that offered professionals in the beauty industry something that would truly disrupt the traditional salon business model, effectively making a much-needed shift in the industry by offering a studio salon space that catered to all beauty professionals, including hair stylists, estheticians, nail techs, massage therapists and more. After many late night meetings, phone calls, road trips across the country (and sketches on who knows how many napkins) IMAGE Studios® became a reality as they opened their first of many locations in Salt Lake City, Utah. After their 5th location opened in 2015, they began preparations to launch IMAGE Studios® Franchise nationwide.
Early on as IMAGE Studios® began to scale Shaun and I sat down and spent considerable time identifying our core values. We wanted to articulate what was driving us in this endeavor, and it was quickly discovered that CREATIVITY, FREEDOM & SUCCESS were the fundamental values that were important to us as founders.
There is an entire universe of values out there in the business world 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 team members, our franchisees, and our salon professionals.We are excited to show you more about this incredible opportunity that is redefining the salon industry as we know it.
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.
