Our History

Tantrum Company History


who we are

In 1988, just a few short years after Mack Fenn finished beauty school, he opened Tantrum Hair Salon. At such a young age it would have been virtually impossible without the help of many loved ones who believed in him. For their support and love he gives thanks to his parents and family, Grandma Marvin, Helen Lloyd, Marene Ellsworth and Marae Harris.

The name “Tantrum” was chosen because it so accurately represents how people act when their hair does not go the way they want. It was first located in the Reichard Realty building on University just east of Stapley in Mesa, Arizona. Tantrum Hair Salon started with only four stations, three dryer chairs and three shampoo bowls. It was the third salon in Arizona to use Goldwell products and still does.

In January of 1994, Tantrum Hair Salon expanded to twelve stations when relocating to 1229 North Gilbert Road, its current location.

Mack wishes to express gratitude to the clientele, the salon team and all those who have helped to make Tantrum Hair Salon a wonderful place to be.
