Fantastic Sams Business Overview

Testimonials »

"I think it's recession-proof. Everybody needs haircuts. We offer family hair care at a mid-range price point. We are not going after the high-income folks, but I have stylists I'd put up against anybody -- stylists who are very skilled and talented, as well as some who are young and whom we are developing. We offer a great value at a reasonable price. When you can get an adult haircut and shampoo for $14.95, that's a pretty good thing in this market. "

"Fantastic Sams has been great for me. I wouldn’t go back and change it for the world. I wish I had done it five years earlier. I tell my salon managers that one of the reasonswe’ve been so successful is that we have a balance. My stylists come at the business from a technical side, and I come at it from a customer’s side and from having a background in accounting. I feel like I know the level of customer service people want in salons because I’ve been a customer. Between us we’ve got it all covered."

About Fantastic Sams

Fantastic Sams was the first nationally franchised full-service hair salon, and has grown to more than 1,100 locations over 40 years. Unlike discount haircut franchises, Fantastic Sams offers the full range of salon services, including haircuts and trend-right styles, color and waxing, which helps generate higher tickets and margins. Fantastic Sams invented the “no-appointment needed” hair salon and continues to be a franchise and beauty industry leader.
