Why lease a Salon Studio or Stylist Station at Artista Beauty Studios? See what The Artista Team has to say about why they did!

Renting my own station at Artista Beauty Studios was the best decision I could have made to kick-start my career as a nail artist! I love being my own boss, making my own schedule and BEST OF ALL- getting to keep all of the money I make! I would never consider working at a salon now that I know how great it is to own my OWN business!

 I chose Artista because the owners are so hands-on and helpful & the rental rates were much better than the other local salon studios.

For me, it was a no-brainer!

Why I Chose Artista Beauty Studios >

After getting my Cosmetology License in 2008, I started working in a salon right away. I had stayed at one salon for 7 years.

The main reason I chose to venture off on my own and looked into renting a studio was one word…. FREEDOM!

I am my own boss, I make my own hours, I book my own appointments.

I am a full time mom, trainer and hairdresser. Working in a salon, you allow someone else to put a cap on the amount of money you can earn.

The best advice I can give someone who is currently working in a salon and knows in the back of their mind they're worth SO much MORE: 

look into renting a studio! It was the best decision I've ever made!

Why I Chose Artista Beauty Studios >

I started my beauty career as a traveling free-lance Make Up Artist (while also working a full-time job). Then, I discovered Lash Extensions! At the time, there were few Lash Stylists in the area & I recognized Lash Extensions as not only a sensible extension of my Make Up business,

but as also a great career opportunity.

I've always had an entrepreneurial spirit (and an affinity for risk taking), and so I decided to dive in, head first! I actually rented my first studio, an office space in a commercial building, before I even finished my Lash Extension training course!

Through the magic of Social Media marketing, I was able to grow my lash business much faster than I had ever anticipated. After about a year, my long time friend, Ebony (owner of the very successful HAIRista Studio in Hampton, VA), and I decided to partner together and open

Artista Beauty Studios!

Today, I continue to run my Lash Extension & Make Up business out of my own Salon Studio at Artista Beauty Studios, while simultaneously running the Artista business!

Personally, working for a salon was never an option for me. I invested my own time & my own money into learning and perfecting my own craft & cultivating my own talent; why would I hand over any of the profit to someone else?

Why I Chose Artista Beauty Studios >

As a stylist for 25 years, after continuing to grow my clientele, I finally made the decision 3 years ago to start my own business.

I just wasn't making what I felt I should be working for a salon. As a single mom, having the flexibility is key. When I work and when I take time off is my decision.

I chose Artista Beauty Studios because it's a beautiful, cozy salon and the owners are very accommodating! I love it here and I'm looking forward to many more years at Artista!

Why I Chose Artista Beauty Studios >

I worked for a salon for 15 years; I was comfortable but I knew I wouldn't reach my full potential. I decided to take a chance working for myself, leasing a Stylist Station & I couldn't be happier! I'm able to make my own hours, personally book appointments for my clients, continue my education, and,

best of all, I'm my own boss!

I chose Artista Beauty Studios because of the great atmosphere, awesome owners, and the beyond-talented people I get to work with! Be your own boss at Artista- you won't regret it!

Starting my own waxing business was the best decision I’ve made thus far in my career! Not only have I accomplished a huge goal of mine, but I have also excelled in my craft. Being able to make my own hours and still have enough flexibility for my personal life is amazing!

Everyone at Artista Beauty Studios is so kind and helpful; I feel extreme amounts of support and love every time I walk through the door! The owners at Artista are professional, accommodating and only want you to see you succeed in your career.

With affordable rental rates and customizable space, there is no reason why you shouldn’t begin your career here!
