Fantastic Sams Franchise Lands More Magazine-Cover Exposure
Trend-right cuts and color found at Fantastic Sams salon franchises keep getting attention from respected media outlets
When Fantastic Sams salon franchise owners refer to their stylists as “artists,” they aren’t just tossing that word around. These talented individuals continue to get local, regional and national attention for work that’s cutting edge.
The latest magazine cover honors go to Tania Rios of the El Segundo, California, salon, which is owned by Bishan Seneviratne and Naresh Moonsignhe. Tania is the general manager of the El Segundo location, as well as two other Los Angeles-area salons with the same owners. Her work was recently featured on the cover of California Stylist, a styling magazine that is well-known statewide.
Talented stylist wears two hats
“Tania is very active in the Fantastic Sams system, and she loves to compete in the annual Artistic Styling Awards,” says Samantha Simmons, franchise operations coordinator for Fantastic Sams’ western region. “She makes a huge difference in the salons where she works, whether it’s giving a customer an amazing cut or color or in the office helping to make sure the business runs smoothly.”
Every Fantastic Sams salon franchise offers high-end salon products and services at family-friendly prices. That’s a given. But our award-winning stylists sometimes surprise people. They shouldn’t.
“Customers know Fantastic Sams because we’ve been around for more than 40 years,” Samantha adds. “What they often aren’t aware of is the sheer depth of talent that our stylists possess. All of our stylists are highly trained, and they spend a lot of their own time going to conferences and seminars to keep up with the latest cuts and colors. Then they bring all that knowledge and skill back to our salons, where our customers benefit every day from their expertise.”
Every service, every product, in one spot
Looking at it from the other side, it’s easy to see how a stylist can succeed in a Fantastic Sams salon franchise. From the color bar to a full line of hair care and color enhancing products, there are multiple ways to increase retail profits while also building customer loyalty — thanks to the full-service approach that Fantastic Sams has mastered.
“People love it when they come in for a cut, and then realize they can get a color or even some facial waxing,” Samantha says. “Our new salon redesign really highlights all our offerings, with the color bar out in the center of the salon and all of our products on display as customers make their way to the stylist’s chair. Fantastic Sams provides the best experience by far in the value salon sector, and our talented stylists know how to capitalize on that.”
