How Jenn Got from rookie stylist to award-winning manager

Read Jenn's story

"The second I started working at a Fantastic Sams salon, I realized the sky is the limit in terms of moving up."

~ Jenn

In her first high school job, Jenn went from Arby's cashier to becoming the store's manager. She considered a psychology degree, a plan dented by high college tuition and the realization that she was ready to get busy working. Her inner artist was revealed in cosmetology school as she became well versed in styling, color and texture techniques, and she went on to become a successful stylist.

At her last salon, Jenn was the “unpaid assistant manager” as she puts it, but after less than a year at Fantastic Sams, Jenn earned the Area Manager role. At Fantastic Sams, Jenn says, “You can be as successful as you want to be," she says. “In this industry, your work ethic determines your paycheck. Hard work gets you somewhere."
