Fantastic Sams


Fantastic Sams is one of the largest full-service hair care franchises with over 1,200 salons in North America. Our full-service salons offer quality hair care services, including cuts, perms and color, for the entire family. Being a full-service salon means our owners benefit from a wider range of revenue sources and a higher average ticket per customer than our competition. By catering to men, women and children, we do not limit our business to only one segment. Fantastic Sams is proud to have its own line of professional hair care products, available only in our salons, thus creating an additional revenue opportunity for our owners.

Why US?

Hair care as a business offers:

  • Near universal need in any market, any economic condition

  • Lite inventory, staff and operations

  • Simple real estate and buildout

  • Can’t be outsourced, replaced by technology or require ‘delivery’

  • Reasonable operating hours


Salon Fundamentals Class: Five days, required for new owners

Training: Ongoing within region

Ideal Candidate

We are seeking owners/investors who are interested in building a business, not buying a job, by developing multiple locations. We currently offer 1, 3, 5 and 10 unit licenses. When you join the Fantastic Sams family of franchisees, you will receive both local and national support through our on-going management training, educational programs and national conferences, as well as advertising and other benefits. Our on-going support focuses on those things that make a difference to the bottom line--recruiting and retention of stylists, training for owners, managers and stylists and marketing and product sales. No hair care experience is required.
