The hair artisans at Fantastic Sams’ more than 1,300 nationwide locations sculpt locks on both men and women with precision and skill. Along with creating updos for special occasions and performing facial waxing and mustache trims, the artisans accompany haircuts by shampooing strands and bolstering circulation with three-minute scalp massages that feature nourishing serum. Deep-conditioning treatments repair damage and bolster shine, and full-color services paint heads in subtle hues or shades as vibrant as a bouquet of light bulbs. A lineup of hair products rounds out the services, treating heads to restorative mixtures from brands such as Moroccanoil, Bamboo, and Fantastic Sams' own in-house line of shampoos, conditioners, and styling aids.
Visually capturing subjects of all ages, the keenly trained eyes of Glamour Shots' photographers guide guests through a fun still-frame experience.

New graduates can memorialize high school with overlaid senior portraits sporting the year of their commencement, or foray into the world of modish modeling with a luminous 10"x13" Pearlized portrait, creating image depth and angel-like auras without the use of visually cluttering Magic Eye finishes. Treat frames to the Glamour Touch service, which softens facial lines, brightens teeth, and removes blemishes.
An Aveda concepts salon, Tonic employs an arsenal of eco-conscious Aveda products and treatments to revamp masculine manes and lovely lady locks. Their hair hotshots are trained twice a year in order to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and techniques. With both of the available treatments, a stress-relieving session starts things off using Aveda blue oil as a seasoned stylist dispels tension with a light massage to your head and aggressive tickling so clients can kick back and enjoy their tress-tending. For fashionable females, Tonic styles their strands with a shampoo, cut, and blowout treatment followed by an eyebrow wax to complete the expert face framing. Meanwhile, male clients can opt for the option to get a thorough head-edit with a shampoo, cut, style, and a stress-relieving treatment that includes a hot-towel treatment, which helps follicles relax so they don't tense up and hide when out on a date.
Armed with current techniques for properly maintaining noggin lawns, Regis Salon’s network of stores keeps clients’ hair in order as dictated by the latest trends.

During the treatment, stylists offer helpful tips and tricks to help clients care for hair at home.
