2022 Stylist Appreciation Event

A fun night dedicated to showing stylists what they mean to us.


At Fantastic Sams Minnesota, our talented stylists are supported and appreciated. One of the ways we do this is through our annual Stylist Appreciation Event. Each year, we host this fun event to celebrate our terrific staff.

Last year’s event, held at The Burrow in Oakdale was an especially fun affair with activities including go-karts, axe throwing, arcade games, and more! There was also plenty of delicious food, drinks, and prizes! In addition, every one of our stylists walked away with a Fantastic swag bag including a great tool! After all, the idea was to let every one of our stylists feel appreciated for all the amazing work they do throughout the year.


Family Fun

Each year, we encourage Fantastic Sams teams from across the Twin Cities area to come together as one big family. It’s a great way to connect with other stylists and make lasting friends. Friendships that become like family is what Fantastic Sams is all about. We foster a fun team environment at all our salons. Yes, we understand that it is a job, but because we work as a team, there is a deeper level of connection that grows from depending on one another. You can’t find that just anywhere.


“One of the things that I love about the team at Fantastic Sams is that we are consistent and structured. We respect and empower each other and work to keep things positive and drama free.” – Sharlene

As a Fantastic Sams family member, support is always close at hand. The co-workers you see every day are always willing to help. In addition, our managers and salon owners are always available to offer support and help guide your career at every step.



Learning Along the Way

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Fantastic Sams event if there wasn’t room for a bit of education, too. So, there were several vendors at the event which gave stylists the opportunity to hear more from them in a relaxed atmosphere.

Fantastic Sams is the number one hair color salon in all of Minnesota. To ensure we always provide the best service possible, we provide all levels of education to support stylists in their careers. It’s important, regardless of what stage of your career you are in, to stay current on all the latest trends, processes, coloring, and resources. One of our main goals is to ensure that your career continues to grow while at Fantastic Sams.

Creativity on Display

One of the best parts of the annual Stylist Appreciation Event is seeing and hearing about the exceptional creativity of our stylists. Our clients come to Fantastic Sams for the latest cuts, colors, and more, which gives our stylists the opportunity to let their creativity shine through.

The Fantastic Sams Minnesota Difference

Simply put, Fantastic Sams is a great place to build a lasting career. Our full-service salons not only serve our happy and loyal customers well, but we also provide our talented stylists with ongoing career support.  Whether you’re still in school, just starting your career, are an experienced pro, or looking to restart your career, we would love to talk to you. We also offer flexibility in scheduling, so we’re a perfect fit for busy parents. We have loyal clients plus plenty of walk-in traffic that will keep you busy without any chair rental fees. And, as you can see from the photos, we have lots of fun, too!

“I personally feel like Fantastic Sams is the best because it feels like a family. You’re never along in anything you do. You’re always going to have somebody cheering you on and backing you up.” – Sofiya
