The other morning I got the rare pleasure of having some unexpected spare time to treat myself to a salon service. I went to a nearby Fantastic Sams Salon and got a trim and a conditioning treatment. It was nice to have some “me time” and I enjoyed chatting with the friendly stylist and reading a gossip magazine while under the dryer.
I went in on a Tuesday morning and there was a steady stream of customers. Most of them were walk-ins without an appointment yet none of them had to wait longer than 10 or 15 minutes. I noticed many of the customers were older women. I think they have a special for senior citizens on Tuesdays but I could be wrong. Their services and price list was not visible and I had to ask how much my conditioning treatment would be- only $10!
After my salon service I felt refreshed and my hair felt soft and healthy again. The prices at Fantastic Sams are very reasonable making a salon service an affordable gift to yourself or others during the holidays.
Below are some tips from Fantastic Sams:
Recession-Friendly Color – Fantastic Sams Hair Salons Tipping & Highlift Services
This year’s trends point to fall themes that will take on a more natural look, with more color applied under the crown area rather than surface. As a result, the new growth will be less noticeable and will allow clients to stretch their salon visits during the economic crunch. Fantastic Sams Hair Salons’ tipping and highlift services allow customers to receive face framing highlights on the ends of the hair rather than full head foils. These color applications light up the face, are less costly and are low in maintenance.
For Blondes – Clarifying Services
Spent the summer in the pool with the kids? At Fantastic Sams Hair Salons, blondes receive clarifying services to rid the hair of product and mineral buildup that may cause the blonde tones to look flat or off tone, especially if they have been in chlorinated pools. An affordable “clear glossing treatment” for blondes adds shine and enhances blonde tones.
For Brunettes & Redheads – Glossing Treatments
At Fantastic Sams Hair Salons we keep brunettes’ and redheads’ color looking fresh by providing affordable glossing treatments in between color services. Fantastic Sams stylists can add in color pigment to the gloss to bump up the color and keep it looking great in between visits.
I actually inquired about a glossing treatment because I had never heard of it and thought it sounded neat. My stylist had never heard of it either so she recommended the conditioning treatment instead which I was happy to try and very much enjoyed.
