FS Trend Report

Stay ahead of upcoming styles and trends.

Every good stylist knows that to succeed you have to go beyond just doing what your customers always expect. Part of the job is staying ahead of emerging trends so you can keep your customers looking their best. One of the perks of working for Fantastic Sams is all the industry knowledge you have at your fingertips. Our stylists know what’s hot and what’s on the way out.

“There’s just so much you can do here at Fantastic Sams. From color services and haircuts to treatments, styling and facial waxing – there’s always an opportunity to use your full set of skills and talents.” – Erin

Red is the Rage

Red hair is red hot right now. This trend is not going to go away anytime soon. Stylists across the country are experiencing a red wave of customers wanting all shades of red, from rich dark auburns to sunny strawberry blondes.

Red can be a tricky color to get right for a variety of skin tones and hair types. Luckily, our stylists have plenty of resources to help ensure they get the right hue every time for our customers.

Color Classes

Ongoing education is one of the ways Fantastic Sams supports our stylists. Chances are that whatever color or coloring technique is currently trending, we offer color-specific classes free to our stylists.

Our November classes are great examples. The first class, Highlighting: Best Placement for Time Management focused on foil placement during highlight processes to improve time management. Balayage Best Practices was the second class that was held in November. It showcased the best tips and tricks for hand-painted balayage techniques so clients leave with beautifully blended tones that they’ll love.

“An ongoing education is extremely important and that’s what’s awesome about Fantastic Sams. Professional courses are provided for you, so you don’t have to pay out of pocket for your required CE classes. There’s always a class available from color theory to cutting techniques, product selling tips and more.” – Breanna

Styles, colors, techniques, and trends are always changing. Our classes help ensure Fantastic Sams stylists are always in the know and ahead of the curve, regardless of where they are in their careers.

Providing regular classes and ongoing access to the latest industry information is just a couple of the ways Fantastic Sams supports our stylists. Helping them succeed helps attract the most talented and creative stylists to our salons. Then, in turn, they provide customers with the best service possible.
