With a central location in a prime retail district, the newest iStudio Salons is poised to help Fort Lauderdale’s beauty professionals finally find the freedom and flexibility they need to pamper their clients and realize their dreams.
Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) May 02, 2012
iStudio Salons, a growing regional chain of upscale salon communities, is pleased to announce the opening of its fourth Florida salon at 1481 S.E. 17th Street, in the reinvigorated Southport Shopping Center just off the 17th Street Causeway.
With three thriving salon communities in greater Orlando, iStudio Salons is now open for business in Fort Lauderdale—where its newest salon is already home to some of the city’s top stylists. The iStudio Salons expansion into Fort Lauderdale marks the firm’s inaugural entrance into South Florida.
“Fort Lauderdale is home to some of Florida’s most talented beauty professionals, and we’re thrilled to provide them an ideal setting in which to serve their clients and grow their business,” says Mark Abbett, co-founder of iStudio Salons. “With a central location in a prime retail district, the newest iStudio Salons is poised to help Fort Lauderdale’s beauty professionals finally find the freedom and flexibility they need to pamper their clients and realize their dreams.”
Founded in 2010, iStudio Salons represents a revolutionary concept in salon ownership. Each is divided into 18-30 studios—“mini-salons”—designed expressly for leasing by independent hair stylists, nail technicians, estheticians and massage therapists. Free from the shackles of booth rent, these beauty professionals are able to set their own hours, sell their choice of retail products, and keep 100% of the money they earn.
“Beauty professionals everywhere—including Fort Lauderdale—are clamoring for a way to run their own business without the hassles, risks and expense of traditional salon ownership,” says James Schregardus, co-founder of iStudio Salons with Abbett. “With iStudio Salons, we’ve designed them an ideal path to success, by providing a modern, chic working environment where they can be their own boss. Our tenants in Orlando are thrilled with what they’ve achieved at iStudio Salons, and we’re certain Fort Lauderdale beauty professionals will feel the same.”
iStudio Salons will celebrate during an official Grand Opening on Saturday, May 5th, from 6 PM to 9 PM at the 17th Street location. Members of the public are welcome.
