Great Experience!

I never take the time to write a review online, but I thought this place deserves the time. I recently came to this Fantastic Sams location for the first time. Rachel was the one that did my highlights. She took the time to give me exactly what I wanted. The two other girls were so nice they always checked if I needed any thing and they really made me feel special, I will for sure go back!

Horrible!!!!

Do not get your hair cut here. Spend a few extra dollars to have it done right. After two different people my hair is still two inches shorter on one side than the other. My hair was thinned but only in one spot. I could go on and on but you would have a better hair cut at a dog groomers.

Trim

I got my hair trimmed and asked for 1" to be cut off. instead,she took of 3" and the right side is a whole inch shorter than the left. absolutely unnaceptable. She did not talk to me the entire time, other than to point out a random hair that I have on my head, which I am actually self-conscious about. I do not reccommend for any one. and i will NEVER go back

Comb-over

I am 59 years old. I have all of my hair. The previous barber cut my hair so it looked like I had a comb-over. FS has been good at cutting my hair the way I want and asked for. Not the last time. I specifically told the stylist that I wanted my hair cut even, NO comb-over. I thought she understood. I comb my hair to the left. I know find that she cut my hair longer on the right side of my head. That is a comb-over. Bald guys do that. Now people look at my hair thinking I'm trying to hide something.

Horrible Place !!!

Took my developmentally disabled brother in for a haircut on 09-14-13, and the hairstylist, Melissa, was rude and unkind to him to the point that he started crying as soon as we left the place. This place must be under new management because I've been taking my brother here for over a decade and this has never happened before. When I called and spoke to the manager about he didn't act as if there was any problems, as if it's okay to be rude and unkind to someone that is developmentally disabled. Oh, my brother is well behaved, well-groomed, and well-dressed, so it wasn't as if he looked like a bum or acted out in there. Horrible Experience-AWFUL PEOPLE!

Great Color Services

I used to get a haircut and color at the fancy salons and pay over $300. I tried this salon because my regular stylist was booked and was converted immediately. Not only does by color look wonderful every time, the ladies are friendly and really know what they are doing, plus I can get my hair colored more often. What a find!

Go anywhere else!

The haircut I received was done by one of their "experienced" stylists. I ended up with a pseudo-Mohawk and several almost bald spots along the sides. My neck was trimmed up 1/2" shorter than ever in my life and the hair over my ears was "side-walled" on one side and almost untrimmed on the other.

It took the manager a week to return my call with my complaint, and even then offered nothing more than a half-hearted pandering.

No compensation given for the 2 haircuts it took, by a talented stylist from another business, to fix the mess before my son's wedding.

Poor quality, zero customer service.

very professional

This salon was clean and organized. I was referred to the ' orchard villiage' salon from my neighbor. Wendy cut my hair exactly like the picture I showed. She then offered me a 7 foil highlights to match the style I in the picture. and I returned 4 weeks later to get my highlights done for head-shots and she had the pic I gave her on file. I was impressed. She did my highlights and a trim for $45.......... My hair looks amazing! I've experienced high-end salons only, franchises made me nervous! I've received sooo many compliments from friends,family and strangers on the street! I'm in love! Thank you Wendy* I'm going back next wek to have Shaihin thread my eyebrows for $10. I was sad I had just paid the brow-bar $25 to do my brows.

Review for: Fantastic Sams in Pleasant Hills, PA

Greatly satisfied!

I recently went in to get a perm. My stylist was Janet Mizak. She asked how I wanted my hair permed. I requested very curly with a lot of body. I explained to her how my hair takes long to process and that the last two perms I got (not at Fantastic Sam's) left sections of my hair straight. She listened very attentively and proceeded to perm my hair. She then trimmed the ends and set my hair in rollers. I also told her before she permed that my had color in it. My previous hair stylist said that the reason some of my hair turned out straight was because the color that I use and her perms were not compatable and she would not perm my hair again until I stopped coloring at home. That is why I chose Fantastic Sam's for this perm. Janet did not have any issues with this and my hair turned out beautiful. I will be coming back and requesting Janet as my stylist. She is an asset to your company! I am vey pleased with the results.

The workers cut however and whatever they want

I was skeptical about going here at first but I wanted to try something different. There was a Mexican lady that cut my hair she also had her children there. I told the Mexican lady that I wanted to cut my hair into a Fohawk. She finished cutting my hair in about 3-4 minutes, I felt like she rushed everything and she kept going to talk to her kids. I told her I wanted to cut it into a Fohawk but she cut my hair into a mini mohawk with no hair at all back the back. I told the lady that I wanted a fohawk not a mini mohawk. Obviously, these salon workers do not know what they are doing and they don't care at all. I was just going to walk out without paying. This place is so bad don't go cut your hair at this store.

Improvement!

I used to go there consistently because of a stylist but she relocated. It's just really convenient for me to go to this one at times because its so close to home. However the last 3 times I've been the haircut is just awful. I keep giving this place chances but I'm just fed up. The stylists rush the cuts and several times when I have gotten home, I have had to trim spots they missed. They are more worried about how many people they can squeeze in. The last time I was in, I mentioned the issue and I got a bland response about its my hairs fault. I'v had the same cut all my life.... I never write reviews but I felt like this had to be addressed.

Customer service in this place is horrible. Its not uncommon to wait over an hour for a haircut, even if they are not busy. The stylists are far too busy talking instead of focusing on their jobs.

New stylist?????

Went and had my haircut at FS on Dell Range in Cheyenne, WY yesterday. Hadn't gotten it done in a couple of months, so I really needed one. The stylist I got must have just graduated (barely) school.Told her what I wanted...kept asking, what? Finally, she said she understood. Then, kept asking, what do I do now. Well, since she effin started the cut, I couldn't walk out, which is what I really wanted to do...felt like a prisoner in the chair, trying to minimize the damage! I have been using FS for YEARS, but I don't know that I would EVER go back.
