But don't just take it from us, hear what our Faces of Sola ambassadors have to say:

"Time waits for no one... Sola sets you up for success with ongoing education, modern technology & an intimate salon setting that you can customize to your brand. Once you get over your fear and into your groove, you are going to wonder why you didn’t jump in sooner.” - Tahesa Nelson

With the tools and resources that Sola sets you up with, there's no way you can fail unless you give up on yourself. You work by yourself but you're never alone. Not one person can tell you No, it's time to tell yourself...Yes.” - Joey Figueiredo

“I would tell someone on the fence about going independent to just take the leap, Sola is there to catch you! The time is now because clients are begging for a more intimate, personalized experience. Don’t be afraid to fail, you won’t! Sola has your back and is holding your hand every step along the way.” - Lindsey Couch

“The career of your dreams is right around the corner. The hardest part is deciding to start and making the move. Now is the time if it feels right for you. It can be scary, but do it scared! You’ve got this!” - Ashlie Garner

"Don't allow fear to hold you back... Nothing changes IF NOTHING CHANGES! I waited for the 'right time' only to find out that such a thing doesn't exist. I've learned that if it's a thought in your mind, then it's an obtainable goal! Go for it, and don't look back! What are you waiting for?!” - Cuyler Engram
