Since the first Fantastic Sams salon opened its doors 35 years ago, stylists at each locally owned and operated franchise have stayed up to date on the latest industry trends. Before each haircut, a stylist shampoos the scalp for three minutes to relieve tension and cleanse the mane of any gels or Gak. In addition to coiffing or coloring tresses, stylists trim beards and mustaches and wax lips and eyebrows. An exclusive line of shampoos, conditioners, and styling products nourish hair with pro-vitamins, soy protein, and silicone.
The ripe orange walls inside Hair by Rosie offset speckled tan floor tiles and black wood accents. Amid these cozy trappings, stylist Rosie Sanchez draws on more then 15 years of experience as she sculpts sleek layers and renovates tresses with invigorating deep-conditioning treatments.

From behind the salon chair at Hair by Justyna Salon, Justyna removes unwanted length with a pair of gleaming scissors and bestows strands with new color using bowls of freshly mixed hair dye.

Maria Guasta started cosmetology school in her junior year of high school and earned her license before she even graduated. When she turned 23, she bought Savage Hair International and devised her own training program for the stylists she hired, sculpting manes for Broadway productions and New York Fashion Week in the meantime. Two decades later, this style prodigy turned beauty-industry veteran continues to develop her salon and personally train each of her stylists, equipping them with products by Schwarzkopf and MoroccanOil. In her spare time, she spreads her instructional talents beyond her salon's walls as an educator with the Rusk creative team, teaching other stylists how to forge stylish haircuts without actually lowering their clients' ears.
