Why Choose Fantastic Sams
When you choose Fantastic Sams for all of your hair care and hair product needs, you can be sure that you truly are choosing something completely fantastic. You will notice this as soon as you walk in the door and check out their appointment-free services offered at each salon.
This is not just a hair cut and color salon. Instead, salons offer a full range of services for men, women and children, and many services are offered in budget-friendly packages, similar to what Supercuts does.
All of their offerings are easy on the wallet, making it simple for you to achieve a great hair style without breaking the bank.
Something else you will notice here is that each stylist is friendly, professional and ready to listen to your needs.
Rather than snipping and coloring without finding out what you truly want, your stylist will be sure to begin your appointment with a brief consultation to ensure that both of you are on the same page.
Customer service is a big reason why many people choose to come back time and again to Fantastic Sams.
After your consultation, you will get to choose one or more services that you want to look and feel your best. You may want a simple haircut, or you may prefer to save money by combining services, such as with a shampoo, haircut, dry and style.
Men can enjoy simple clipper cuts, and children can get fun shampoos and cuts for a fraction of the cost of an adult style.
You may also want to come in for a fresh color for the new season. Fantastic Sams offers all-over colors as well as full and partial highlights.
Color gloss give you semi-permanent color that will last for a few washes, and gray blending helps you color away your grays with a natural look.
Other services you can enjoy here include texturizing with permanent waves, relaxers or keratin treatments and bang, neck and beard trims for quick touchups. To get rid of a bit of unwanted facial hair, try the brow or lip waxing treatments.

As you can imagine, Fantastic Sams was started by someone named Sam. Sam Ross opened the first Sams, which was originally called Incredible Sams, in 1974.
By 1976, he had changed the name to the moniker now known across the country thanks to the over 1,100 franchises.
Franchising began in the same year, and the brand continues to grow thanks to the many individuals choosing to open more super-successful salons.
