Quality, service and style, all at a fantastic price. We believe that with the right team, the right price and the right products, your perfect salon experience should just fall into place — like the perfect cut. We prove it every day. An affordable salon experience you can trust
In July 1974, Sam Ross opened the first Fantastic Sams® beauty salon in Memphis, Tennessee, with the goal of creating an affordable salon experience that was accessible to everyone. Today, we are one of the world's largest full-service hair care salons, with over 1,000 locations throughout North America.
An approach that works. Whether you're looking for great salon color, salon services for men, or simply a fuss-free affordable haircut, Fantastic Sams delivers every time. The reason for that success? It begins with a team of people who know how to make you look and feel fantastic. And it continues long after your visit, with products you can count on to keep your hair looking great.
Why Our Franchise?
Since Fantastic Sams first started franchising in 1976, the United States has experienced five recessions, according to the National Bureau of Economic Research. Many of our franchisees are 20- and 30-year veterans whose Fantastic Sams thrived through all of them. During tough economic times, clients who normally frequent high-end salons might look for something more affordable. So while some salons' business might drop off in a down economy, many of our franchisees experience an influx of new customers.
Regardless of the economy, people always want to look good.
Since joining Dessange International in 2012, we have entered a period of unprecedented growth, and we expect to double or triple our number of locations in the next five to 10 years. Our New Image salons are attracting new clients, and our emphasis on constant training and keeping up with popular style trends keeps them coming back. We have established ourselves as color experts in the value salon segment, and we also carry an exclusive line of salon-grade products.
