Loved that SuperBowl commercial about a new 'cheap' $6.99 haircut franchise business opening up directly across the street from a small local hair-cutting business. Grand Opening and lots of people are swarming over to it - his shop empty.

The owner looked perplexed - then ran over to OfficeMax to get a banner made. Puts the large banner up that states "We fix $6.99 haircuts".

Sure enough, several months later (elapsed time obviously) the commercial shows the franchise store with large "FOR LEASE" signs all over the windows with a smiling small business owner still in business with customers!

Classic commercial!! loved it.

Hi, I actually work at a great clips and have for 5 years now! I just want to comment on everyones posts and say we are not a bad franchise like everyone may believe. We are the same as every other salon just cheaper is all. Great clips was started in a time where there was no ala cart pricing structure so it was made for people not wanting to spend $50 on a shampoo and style when all they wanted was a cut. We are highly trained individuals and have to be by regulation of osha and state board! Every hairstylist goes to school for 1400 hours or more (depending on the state they live in) and if you feel like that individual hasnt then you may ask to see their hairstyling/cosmotology/barbering license! thats right we have one!

The reason that there is so much turnover in our salons and the whole hairstyling industry is by stylist choice, Great clips does not do color at all and some stylist like to switch to try and learn something new or to try to go to booth rental. That said your haircut will vary based on who does it if you dont like your service then speak to the manager at your local salon, they should know how to handle the situation!

As for coupons and I cannot stress this enough great clips is a franchise meaning if another store not within my franchise put out a coupon i might not be able to take it. that said dont get mad at me because as a stylist i have very little power involved in what coupons i can and cant take. Call your local salon before coming in to see if they take it to save yourself the trouble. (my store doesnt take internet coupons at all)

I enjoy reading the feadback and seeing what makes customer un happy with their experince so i can take that and use it on my customer so their experince is enjoyable.

Faster doesnt mean choppy and cheaper doesnt mean sloppy we have our system for a reason and it has worked for damn near 30 years, if you as a customer are unhappy with our service or feel that we are cheaper and equate that to being bad then we just may not be the salon for you and thats ok but we do help a lot of people who cant afford 50 cuts and 90 styles!!!!
