How Image Studios 360 Began
In 2009 several creative minds came together and started to discuss the possibility of creating an amazing salon space that offered professionals in the beauty industry something that had not been done before. Something that would truly disrupt the traditional salon business model, and effectively make 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 360 was born.
“As Image Studios 360 continued to develop and grow we quickly identified our core values: creativity, freedom, and success. There is an entire universe of values but these core values truly embody everything we do at Image Studios 360. 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 360 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.”
– Jason & Shaun Olsen, Founders
