History

The Fantastic Sams Story - HOW FANTASTIC SAMS CREATED THE FIRST UNISEX SALON FRANCHISE. Barbershops have always had a lot of appeal and a loyal clientele, because customers can get what they need quickly and at a reasonable price. Fantastic Sams founder Sam Ross observed the barbershop phenomenon and thought, why not offer those services to the whole family?

In July 1974, Sam opened one of the first unisex salons that offered everyone the barbershop formula of convenience, affordability and familiarity. In 1976, he began franchising his concept, making Fantastic Sams the first national unisex hair salon franchise.

As for the name, the story goes that as he finished up a particularly stylish cut, the client said, “That’s fantastic, Sam!” and a legacy was born. He realized his salons could be a place for kids to get their hair cut, where men could get barber-style service and women could get a whole range of basic salon services — cuts, color, waxing — at an affordable price. It would be a convenient, one-stop salon that would earn clients’ loyalty.

REDEFINING HAIR SALON FRANCHISES

In 2012, we became a part of Dessange International, the premium-luxury European salon chain. The core of what we do and who we are remains the same, but with Dessange International, Fantastic Sams has entered an unprecedented period of growth. We currently have nearly 900 salons in the U.S., and our goal is to double that number in the next few years.

We embrace the operational philosophy envisioned by our founder while continuing to innovate. We not only offer haircuts and styles. We also provide processes like perms, straightening and color, as well as facial waxing. We sell salon-quality products to our clients, which helps provide an additional revenue stream to our franchisees. Clients love us because we make them look great. Franchisees love us because they can start the business quickly and easily add more salons to increase their return on investment and build their net worth.

Training And Support

ONGOING TRAINING FROM EXPERIENCED OPERATORS

Fantastic Sams offers our franchisees extraordinary field support. Many members of our support team have 20-plus years as successful managers and owners themselves, so they understand what it means to learn a business from the ground up.

We provide educational training to our stylists three times a year to make sure they stay at the forefront of hair care. Fantastic Sams is a state-of-the art salon offering a full array of services and products, and we provide our franchisees with as much guidance and support as possible. That made a difference to Michael Kuryllo, who owns 19 salons in Southern California.

“I looked at Supercuts, Subway and coin-operated laundromats. I didn’t think Supercuts and Subway were user-friendly for new franchisees; Fantastic Sams was much easier to work with,” Michael says.

“As we looked into it, we liked the education program they had, and it seemed like they had more support for new owners. I chose Fantastic Sams because they had the best training for owners and their staff.”

A RESPONSIVE MANAGEMENT TEAM AND ROBUST FIELD-LEVEL SUPPORT

Franchisees know they can count on one thing from us: Everyone on our executive team always calls back – we prioritize our franchise owners.

We also have regional franchise experts who can step in when someone on the executive team isn’t available. Every region has its own regional director, operations specialist and stylist educator.

When a new salon opens, the educator helps interview managers and stylists to make sure their technical skills are up to par. Once the staff members are in place, they attend a training boot camp where they learn everything from how to greet customers at the door to the ins and outs of the Fantastic Sams exclusive product line. The operations team trains franchisees on salon fundamentals like scheduling and increasing their bottom line. In addition to monthly meetings for franchise owners and their managers, educators hold monthly meetings and periodic classes on color, cutting techniques and more.
