Beauty salon chain opens Mint Hill location

Beauty salon chain Fantastic Sams has opened a new location in Mint Hill. It is the first of several more to come to the Charlotte region.

The salon is at 7032 Brighton Park Drive, Suite 230, near the Harris Teeter off Matthews-Mint Hill Road and across from the new Publix. It is among the first of the company’s latest locations to feature the brand’s new modern floor plan, according to a recent statement.

Franchisee Sam Murray said he’s signed licensed franchise agreements to open multiple Fantastic Sams throughout the Charlotte metro area. The Mint Hill location is his first salon.

Murray’s salon is hosting a private ribbon cutting Monday morning with Mint Hill Mayor Ted Biggers, the Mint Hill Chamber of Commerce and Fantastic Sams Chief Executive Officer Linda Chadwick.

Fantastic Sams offers a variety of low-cost hair services including cuts, texturizing and coloring. Every haircut begins with a complimentary shampoo and three-minute scalp massage. The Massachusetts-based chain operates over 1,100 locations across the U.S.
