Each beauty complex will span approximately 5,000 square feet and feature anywhere between 20 to 30 suites. Guests to MY SALON Suite are treated to the latest in hair and related salon services.

Members are provided with proactive building maintenance and support with business development, among other services.
“MY SALON Suite is in a class of its own,” said Audrey, who is a medical doctor and has experience in business operations. “When we began exploring concepts to grow and develop in the Charlotte region, MY SALON Suite hit on everything we were looking for in a business – a one-of-a-kind experience for customers, a recurring revenue stream, minimally impacted by economic conditions and an attractive & proven business model for franchise partners. It’s a winning opportunity for everyone involved. We are looking forward to hitting the ground running in the weeks and months ahead.”
“We empower beauty professionals to become salon entrepreneurs with their own suites, while providing them with all of the resources they need to succeed including best in class furnishings & equipment, a thriving environment, and ongoing support to grow their business,” added Audrey. “Plus, for their clients, we offer an escape from the rigors of the day in a quiet, private setting where they are treated to an upscale salon experience like no other.”
Audrey, a medical doctor specializing in psychiatry with her own clinic, will be overseeing the daily operations of the new MY SALON Suite locations; helping to ensure a comfortable, clean and smooth running environment that allow all members to feel confident and supported as they focus on grown their businesses and keeping their clientele happy.
