Fantastic Sams hair salon is marking 15 years of operation in Minnesota.

The Minnesota region, which has 100 walk-in salons and employs more than 1,000 stylists, has its headquarters in Maple Grove as well as a training facility where hundreds of stylists visit each month to get ongoing training to advance their careers.  

All salons are independently owned and operated. In addition to their headquarters and training center, Maple Grove is home to two Fantastic Sams locations located at 6334 Vinewood Lane and 9859 Maple Grove Parkway North. 

 The no appointment-needed, walk-in salons provide a range of services including hair color, haircuts, perms, texturizing, treatments and special-occasion styling.

“Fantastic Sams’ success in Minnesota is due to strong local ownership and our family of talented, guest-oriented stylists,” Minnesota Region Director for the Fantastic Sams Franchise Corporation Tina Krech said. “We are proud to offer a number of resources to support Minnesota salon owners and operators as well as extend ongoing education opportunities for stylists.” 

Minnesota is one of the few regions to feature its own independent training facility, located in Maple Grove. 

“We know a fantastic guest experience starts with trained stylists who love what they are doing,” Krech said. “Our region takes great pride in giving our stylists the tools and training to be their best..."

Fantastic Sams started in 1974 in Tennessee. Today, the hair salon Sams has more than 1,300 salons nationally.
