(EAST PEORIA, IL – April 18, 2019) – On Tuesday, April 16, 2019 the East Peoria Chamber of Commerce, along with Cullinan Properties, Ltd., hosted a ribbon cutting to celebrate the build-out completion of Sola Salon Studios at The Levee District.

Sola Salon Studios is located at 326. W. Washington Street near Carter’s and McDonald’s. The 6,260 SF studio space provides area consumers with more choices for experienced hair stylists, estheticians, eyebrow artists, barbers, nail techs and a range of other professionals in the cosmetology industry.


Sola Salon is a franchise that provides beauty professionals with high-end, fully-equipped salon studios alongside the support and tools they need to launch their salon business. Founded in 2004, Sola Salon Studios is the largest, fastest-growing salon studio business in the country.


“Sola Salon Studio’s ribbon cutting was a wonderful way to celebrate filling one of the last remaining spaces at The Levee District,” stated Kathleen Brill, Vice President, Director of Leasing for Cullinan Properties, Ltd. “We are pleased that these new beauty services are now available to the professionals and residents of East Peoria and the surrounding area.”


Sola Salon Studios at The Levee District accommodates 32 private studios. The studios are move-in ready, private spaces equipped with shampoo bowls, ample storage, oversized sliding/locking doors, floor-to-ceiling walls for privacy, 24/7 access, individually controlled ventilation, Wi-Fi, all utilities and full-spectrum lighting.


“Many stylists’ career goals involve owning their own salon, and Sola provides them with that opportunity,’ says co-owner Chelsea Schmalenberg. “We are not a traditional salon. Beyond providing a support system Sola offers more freedom and more control by helping people get into business for themselves.”


There are studio spaces remaining. Interested parties should contact Chelsea Schmalenberg at 513-444-8965 or for a confidential, non-obligation tour.
