Q:Can I share my studio with another beauty industry professional?
Yes. Individual studios can be shared by up to two beauty industry professionals depending on the size of the studio. We permit and sometimes encourage two individuals to share a studio in order to reduce cost. The sharing of studios will assist beauty professionals who recently entered the industry to follow their dreams and develop their clientele.
Q:Do I have to obtain Image Salons’s permission before permitting another beauty industry professional to share my studio?
Yes. Image Salons in most cases, will permit two individuals to share a studio. However, the co-tenant has to also sign the lease agreement to be jointly liable for the studio. By requiring the co-tenant to be jointly liable under the lease agreement, we are protecting not only Image Salons’s investment in the premises but also protecting you in the event the co-tenant destroys the rented studio.
Q:Should I share my studio with another beauty industry professional or should I rent my own studio ?
It is based upon your own individual preference. However, beauty industry professionals who have been in the industry for two years or more and have sufficient clients are encouraged to have their own studio. On the other hand, beauty industry professionals who have recently entered the industry are encouraged to share their studio while building up their client-base.
