Crystal Andrews

Really reasonable for corrective color! Nice head massage with shampoo!

I've been going exclusively to Fantastic Sams after having Bree cut my hair for the first time. She takes very good care of me and has been helpful in finding new hairstyles and styling options. The one time that she wasn't available and I had a last minute interview, Whitney took great care of me. Everyone there has been very professional every time I've gone in for a hair cut or eyebrow wax.


I was really indecisive the whole time, but the woman, her name was Sandra I think, was very kind the whole way through. She did an amazing job and I will almost definitely be going back if I need another cut.

My wife was in there for 4 hours and hated her hair and paid 150 dollars for it we went back the next day to get it fixed and it was better but a week later her hair was like sand paper and we had to get 4 inches of it cut off and redyed it with an dollar box of hair dye and she likes it more than what she got here

Our whole family gets our hair cut here. They know us by name and are really good with the kids. You can request specific stylist but they are all pretty good. If you go on cheap haircut days you may have to wait 30 minutes but other days you can normally walk right in.


They ignore you when you walk in then when a crowd shows up they start checking in people at random. Please don't give them your business.

Arrived at 5:35pm on Saturday evening to Edwardsville IL location. Door was locked. Finally someone opened it for me only to say they were no longer taking customers that day. Their hours are until 6pm. How can you turn people away at your open hours?

Stopped in yesterday around 10:30am, was extremely thankful that they were open. I had stopped at smart style and they were closed. I understand that it snowed yesterday but as a manager/owner myself I appreciated them being open. I walked in and noticed only one girl there. She was in the middle of a cut and told me she’d be right with me. When she came to the front desk she told me it would be about 10 minutes, and due to the snow she was the only one who was able to make it to work. I waited and I’m glad I did! Briana was extremely professional and listened to everything I wanted. It was my first time here and i will definitely be back! After asking how long she had worked there I was pleasantly pleased to find out she’s been with your company for 7 years. It made me very comfortable! You should be proud to have an employee with such great work ethic. I know many of my employees wouldn’t have come to work with bad weather like yesterday’s. I will say I was skeptical of coming here after reading recent reviews. If you’re wanting to visit this fantastic sams I’d go and see briana, she’s professional, knowledgeable and gave me an AMAZING haircut. The price is affordable and would recommend to everyone. We also talked about color and i can’t wait to come back to get it done. Hope she stays with your company for many more years!

They do a good job, but always give good instructions to avoid a bad haircut.

I've only trusted a select few people to my hair, but after moving to Edwardsville I needed to find someone in the area that I could trust. I went to Fantastic Sams and Bree was my lifesaver! I don't get anything done often because I love my length, but I could trust her to trim only what was necessary so I could keep my length and still look great and healthy! I also went to her to put in my clip in extensions and she was super helpful and they looked GREAT!! I would highly recommend Bree; she is so talented and super sweet! :) Everyone at Fantastic Sams was friendly and welcoming. It is a very clean salon, too!

I made a reservation two weeks in advance to have my sister and my mother's hair done for a wedding. When I got there the day of, the person who had taken down my reservation weeks before had not put the correct date, so they kind of had to squeeze us in and it was a Saturday morning so they were pretty busy. This wasn't a huge problem and the staff were nice about getting us taken care of as quickly as possible, but it was an additional stress on the day that I did not need. My mom has shorter hair that just needed to be curled and styled in a way that looked like someone put in some effort. My sister has super long hair and it needed to either be half up, or all the way up in some kind of semi-formal updo. I was not impressed with the result of either hairstyle. My mom's hair looked like I could have done a better job and my sister's hair looked like an experiment with braids and curls rather than a finished updo. I can't remember the exact prices, but I think that it was $28 for my mom and something like $30 for my sister's hairdo. This place is pretty inexpensive and I know that you get what you pay for. Next time, I will probably opt for a more expensive place to get their hair done properly.

Friendly, professional employees!

I love this place! When I first moved to Edwardsville, I didn’t know where I would go to get my hair cut, so I decided to give the local Fantastic Sam’s a try, and it was way more than I expected - the staff is exceptionally nice and they always ensure you get exactly what you want and that you’re happy with it too. When I go in, I request Ruth McKorkel to do my hair because she knows just what I like! She’s amazing at cuts, color, and bleaching! I went blonde for the first time and she was amazing with my dark, course hair! I love my new style :)

I found Ruth McCorkle, at Fantastic Sam's in Edwardsville to be an outstanding hairdresser. She listens closely, give intelligent suggestions, and her haircuts are beyond excellent. If you are like me, and value a great cut, ask for Ruth McCorkle !!!

Gold Whisper

Great hair salon and styling! I love it!

I have been going to Fantastic Sam's for 2 years and it's because of the great staff that I keep coming back. My hairstylist is Bree. She is one of the sweetest people I know, in addition to being amazing with hair. I actually look forward to coming in to spend time with her. I've trusted her with chopping 7 inches off, dying it auburn, giving me highlights, and so much more. I always leave with a smile and feeling great about myself. She is also so fun to chat with while she works. When I moved from Edwardsville up to Springfield I would make the 2 hour drive down to Edwardsville so she could do my hair. The atmosphere there is always great and everyone seems like they genuinely enjoy the work they do.

Went to your shop in Edwardsville for a hair cut and stood at counter for at least 4 to 5 minutes and no one acknowledged that I was there. I have been customer for at least 10 to 12 years but this is it. This is not the only shop in town

Stormy DuFrain

Kandice has done my hair for year, I follow her to whatever location she is it....always super satisfied!

Asim naqvi

Not a good place to go. I waited there for an hour after signing in for my turn and the people coming after me are having haircuts and else. I am going to this shop for many years but now no more. In fact I experienced this problem before too. Poor service !!!

Ann Albrecht

I actually like this place and have had many great haircuts. However the staff seems to change so much I can't get the same cut each time.


Love Alex she is the only one who cuts me and my daughter's hair won't go unless she is there.

I want to thank the manager Jennifer and her staff for wonderful customer service to myself and for my mother even though it was by phone they went above and beyond to help us with our problem and we appreciate it greatly. We will be making the drive to visit this store as the staff is very friendly and respectful.

Rebecca Herman

Most unprofessional salon I have ever been to.

Warr Ginger

I had the worst hair dye and highlights ever color was gone in a week and my hair got fried a lot of money for a horrible job I wish I could share pics because it was a horrible job now I have orange hair

Colin McLaughlin

Devon Williams

Great experience

Mac Swartz

Ever since I've moved to Edwardsville for college, I have tried to find a place I'm comfortable getting my hair cut. I walked into Fantastic Sams about a year ago after going to several places in the area I was not too pleased with. The quality and service I get every time I go in to this place keeps me coming back time and time again. Every stylist who has worked on me does a fantastic (pun intended) job and is always very friendly. They're my go-to as long as I'm here!

Shaunacy Farnsworth

well we went to get a cut for our daughter wanted a long Bob and all she got was 6 inches cut and a few layers! it's all the same length! she was so excited for a Bob cut and on top of that the lady didnt listen to a word I asked for her hair just did her own thing

Melissa Rezabek

I love Fantastic Sam's. Whitney know jus how I like my cut and color. I won't go anywhere else.

Joy Settle

Hair is a signature of my image. With many changes through the years and a few stylist along the way, I ended up walking through the doors to a new home. I had three talented ladies before meeting my now hairstylist, Bree. I have a lot of big business events throughout a year so having a person that puts so much care into her work and looks forward to seeing her customers is a rockstar.

Stacy is legit. Best hairstylist east of the Mississippi :)

Crisanta Skosky

Ruth is awesome!!! I first came to her when my hair color didn’t go the way I planned and was basically in panic mode. Ruth was able to strip that horrible color and give me the color I actually wanted!! Since then, I’ve been going to her to color and cut my hair. I don’t let anyone else touch it. I recommend her to anyone looking to change their hairstyle or color!!

James Tillerson

Great service for a good price. Alex did a great job.

Mary McKee

I went there today, and it had been about 6 weeks since my last cut. I was really busy in July and time slipped away. Until recently, I had been having Jennifer cut my hair, but the last couple of times she wasn't available. The last time-(she was there)-but didn't come out of the back to work, so I got stuck with an unfamiliar face. The lady did do a good job, though. Today I went for a cut and eyebrow wax. I don't know her name because I shredded my receipt and am not good with names. At first this girl was ok. She asked me what I needed done, washed my hair, then did my eyebrows. She left a goo on the outside of my eyebrows, which I didn't notice until I left. It was making my hair stick to my cheeks. I told her I dry it under, which should've told her it was an undercut, but when she was done, she scrunched it and made it curl in the back-didn't ask me if I wanted it dried or styled, and cut my bangs halfway to my eyebrows. I looked bad coming out of there, and I'm not happy at all, but I gave her a 5 dollar tip. I had been used to better from them. Maybe they don't want the business; am I giving enough of a tip?? I just don't know. I'm going to call now and see what the manager says.

I wouldn't say this was the worst experience I've had at a salon, but it's definitely on the lower end of my list. I had maybe half a minute to explain to my stylist what I wanted and it turns out I probably should have made myself more clear. My hair looked better before I got there and will probably not be going back any time soon. Now I will say I have visited once before and got a SIMPLE trim, and the one stylist I had before actually did a great job and I was impressed. So maybe it is more based on which stylist you get "stuck" with, I am just not comfortable with those chances. My advice is to go somewhere a little more pricey; you get what you pay for,

Jonce Scheffel

Every Wednesday and Friday they have a great special on Men's haircuts and do a great job.

Sophie Fairman

Won’t be going anywhere else for my hair cuts!! Special shout out to my favorite beautician who always knows what I want before I even know. Thanks, Ruth!!

Kandice Hurley

Victor Khong

Great smiles, great cut. Alex and Ruth are my favorite stylists.

Ruth Mckorkle

Luka Radovic

Great place to get a haircut! If you are someone who wants a specific haircut ask for Sandra, she does an amazing job. Haven't found anyone yet that could do a better fade and also lines you up in the end.

R Kaff

I believe there is a major “bait and switch” going on here. They advertise their coupon specials with an expiration date and I go there and they won’t accept their own coupons that are good on Wednesday and Friday. I left very disgruntled. I am surprised they get away with it. Unless something changes I will go to great clips from now on. What a joke and a waste of my time. I will tell everyone I know.

Young Savage

Lady messed my hair so bad now I have to go to school with a bad cut
