"Everyone at FS is genuinely very passionate about their job and they care so much about their clients. And our stylists are always helping each other out: giving pointers and tips or teaching new techniques. I wouldn’t be at Fantastic Sams if it wasn’t for all the support from my salon family."
"I chose FS as a place to work because when I left beauty school, it was just me and my little baby. I needed to make money fast and I needed a lot of education in a short amount of time. So, the idea of having people brought to me while learning in a fast-paced industry was really appealing to me."
"My experience as a new stylist coming into Fantastic Sams has been amazing as far as furthering my education, creating a salon-family, and my management team has just been very, very, very supportive."
"Fantastic Sams is really great because it brings in the clientele for you. Whether you’re switching from a different salon where you’ve built your own clientele over the years or you’re a newer stylist, you’re always going to be busy at FS. The pay is also very competitive with a base rate plus commission, there’s room for growth."
"The culture in our salon is very energetic and family oriented. We get to be day-makers for our clients and give them the hairstyle they’re looking for, while working in a fun environment. A lot of my co-workers have been together for a long time, and we genuinely love working together. I feel fortunate to have been here for nine years!"
"When I was self-employed, I had to worry about paying rent, ordering color, taking care of the utility bills, building my books. And now at FS, it’s a different type of responsibility. You show up, you help your team grow, you have flexible hours and get to be creative using all your skills."
"I love that Fantastic Sams allows me to determine the schedule that works for my family’s needs, whether that’s 9am-5pm or 12-8pm. I have a lot of flexibility with my schedule, so I can continue doing what I enjoy while doing what works for my family."
"Going from a salon where I was only cutting hair to going to a more full-service salon, FS was nice about pacing things for me, so I was able to slowly ease my way back into color. I did one-on-one training with my manager, and virtual classes as well, which was easy to build into my schedule. I was slowly able to open my books for more services, which helped me not get overwhelmed."
"Fantastic Sams cares a lot about their employees. As a student, I was invited to their Employee Appreciation Event and saw first-hand how much they actually care about their staff. They’ve also helped me get a leg up in school because I’ve seen how stylists interact with their clients and can watch the natural flow of their conversations and consultations."
"I love walking into FS every day. It’s always something new and fun. We have music playing, the salon is beautiful, my co-workers are having fun, too. I always have a variety of clients on my books—from kids to teenagers and even elderly clients. And it’s fun knowing I’m walking into the salon and doing a variety of services that day."
"My average day at FS can range from a full day of colors, a full day of cuts, a mix of both, and sometimes there’s even a perm thrown in the mix. Every day is going to be different, and that’s the fun of it. What I really love about this job is every day is a new challenge, which is important to me as a new stylist."
"I like the ability to have both walk-ins and appointments at FS because it really helps build my clientele. At this point, my books are pretty packed, which lets me use my creative skills behind the chair. A lot of my clients trust me and say, “Do what you want.” It’s fun to have those guests and be creative with all the skills you have built yourself, and that Fantastic Sams has helped you build."
"I’ve worked at a higher-end salon previously, and I find I make more money working out of Fantastic Sams. I was unsure when I first started working at FS if it would be enough to take care of my family, but after a short period of time, I was already making more money. I’m really proud to know I can take care of my family and anything that comes up."
“I love working for FS because they provide the support I need to feel good about my future in cosmetology. From classes, benefits, and so many other opportunities I know I'm right where I belong.”
“I personally feel like FS is the best because it feels like a family. You’re never alone in anything you do. You’re always going to have somebody cheering you on and backing you up.”

“With FS, I know that I always have the support of my team and staff. That has been crucial and has helped create a job that I absolutely love. Nothing beats seeing the reactions of my guests when they see the final results of their hair.”
“I enjoy the working atmosphere and family environment we’ve created at our salon. This is with the staff, but also extends to the clientele. It’s a great culture to be a part of.”
“I’ve worked at a couple other salons before Fantastic Sams and those environments just didn’t work for me. Here, I actually enjoy coming into work – I love the people, the products, the variety of services I get to do. It’s a solid community.”
“I love the teamwork that is FS. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been working for 10+ years or you’re fresh out of beauty school, everyone is there to help each other. Your team becomes more than just a team, but your extended family. I love that FS goes above and beyond when it comes to their employees by offering continuing education classes and having people from the region along with product professionals come in personally to answer questions stylists may have. I honestly couldn’t see myself working anywhere other than an FS salon.”
“What I enjoy about working at FS is the closeness and sense of security the team brings. I love that as an FS stylist I can reach out to anyone for questions or support! My team is constantly pushing each other to be the absolute best we can be. We really are one big family!”

"At Fantastic Sams Cut & Color, I feel like my voice matters. If I need help with anything I can ask any of my coworkers. I have gained so much more knowledge and insight. My manager has helped guide me into the right direction that I want to go as a stylist, and I love every bit of it!”
"Fantastic Sams Cut & Color has truly helped me build my guest base over the last four years. The walk-in and appointment option model has truly helped keep guests in my chair and our full-service offerings bring in a variety of guests, so I get to work on everything from mens’ cuts to specialty colors every day – I love it!”
“An ongoing education is extremely important and that’s what’s awesome about Fantastic Sams.
