The Fantastic Sams hair salon franchise fills a large niche that no one else is exploiting – the full-service salon at reasonable prices. Join a leader in its category in this recession resistant industry.
Fantastic Sams� is the world's largest full service hair care franchise, with salons located in 4 countries. We opened our first salon in July 1974 and began franchising in 1976, marketing our "fixed fee" system and "no appointment necessary" concept to entrepreneurs nationwide. Our salons have earned a reputation for providing quality hair care services, including cuts, perms and color, to the entire family.
With more than 1,350 full service, family hair care salons, Fantastic Sams� provides its franchisees with over 30 years of experience in hair care and business management. We offer solid, proven systems which are continuously refined and will keep you ahead of the competition. The strength of our brand is reinforced through a network of 40 regional owners, over 720 salon operators and over 13,000 experienced stylists who deliver FANTASTIC� service each and every day.
Our high quality product lines, Fantastic Hair Care and Fantastic Color, are two more advantages for our franchisees. Our full line-up of shampoos, conditioners, styling aids, in-salon treatments, permanent waves and color treatments are designed to solve problems and styling needs for all hair types in nearly every situation. Their consistent, high-quality results have aided in building a loyal customer base for repeat business.

According to the International Franchise Association (IFA), franchising allows people to go into business for themselves, but not by themselves. It gives an entrepreneur the best of both worlds, the ability to own their own business and ongoing access to support in marketing, advertising, recruiting, retaining and training employees, managing and business planning. In addition, they have the power of a national brand working for them, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to bring them more business!
