Porte Noire, a salon collective, will open its first Tampa Bay location this July.

Located in the Palms of Carrollwood, the space will feature more than 5,000 square feet that is divided into 33 individual and double studio salons.

Porte Noire is a brand under the umbrella of Flagship Companies Group LLC, a private investment firm in Lake Mary.

The group opened the first Porte Noire location in Winter Park in May 2014, and now has four locations throughout the Orlando area.

"Once we opened several successful locations in the Orlando market, I knew the Tampa market would be next," said executive president Mark Cooney. "We are excited to bring Porte Noire's 'Best in Class' collective of studio salons to the Tampa Bay area."

Porte Noire offers a community of professionally maintained salons that are independently owned and operated by cosmetology and health and wellness professionals. The studios are fully equipped with a styling chair, mirror, wash sink, custom cabinets, flat screen, mini fridge, and coffeemaker. Each upscale location also offers a foyer with a virtual receptionist and lounge for clients.

Owners of the individual salons can choose what services they offer, such as haircuts, styling, skin care, massage therapy, makeup, manicures and more. They can also set their own hours and prices.

"We have created a community where professionals can be independent, but not alone," said Ted Bolin, CEO of Flagship Companies Group.

Porte Noire is located at 13145 N Dale Mabry Highway, #B. Another location is slated to open at The Shops of Wiregrass in 2017. For more information, visit portenoire.com.
