Services Offered

Great Clips offers a variety of hair cuts and styling services and serves everyone from children to senior citizens. Children and senior citizens can enjoy discounted haircut prices. Clients can simply walk in and request any service because no services require appointment times.

Their quick, yet high quality haircuts make Great Clips a popular place to get a haircut for men even as hair salons catered specifically for men (such as Sport Clips) continue to gain in popularity. 

Haircuts and trims are among the most popular services requested. Individuals can also get low-priced trims for their bangs, beards or necks. Shampoo and styling can be added on to any haircut or can be chosen alone for a blow-out.

Whether it’s a stylish pixie cut or a simply taking a couple inches off, Great Clips is a great option.

Conditioning treatments are great for overly-styled, frizzy or very dry hair to make the hair smooth and soft again. Some salons also offer perms and wave treatments.

Stylists provide quick but personalized services based on customer requests and on the history found in the franchise’s Clip Notes database.

Company History

Since they first opened in 1982 and through their many expansions over the decades, this Minnesota-based company has shown that the average American values friendly service, easy operating hours and basic hair care.

Originally, the salon opened as a college campus-friendly salon near the University of Minnesota. Quickly two other salons opened up nearby in the next three months. The first franchised salon opened in 1983 in the Minneapolis metro area, but the salons quickly grew throughout the United States.

With well over 4,000 salons across the U.S., the Great Clips model has shown that no-frills business works well for the average American. Other brands such as Fantastic Sams and Hair Cuttery have also used this same business model successfully.

Today, over 40,000 people are employed under the Great Clips name. The salons continue to grow, expand and employ more people as Americans continue to value budget-friendly self-care.

In addition, Great Clips focuses on helping their neighbors through philanthropy. The Great Deeds program focuses on volunteer activities.

The business also offers Clips of Kindness with free clipper cuts for cancer patients. Their annual Charity Golf Classic and their yearly support of the Children’s Miracle Network are also well-documented.

    • This is ridiculous! I got a haircut and afterwards they charged me $25.00!! Before covid19 it was $15.00 in Monrovia,Ca. I asked the worker and they said “oh yeah, its been like that for a while now” I’ll never go again for a $25.00 haircut!

  1. not sure where you got the prices for a hair cut from but every one i checked starts at $22 they are only around what you quote when they have a special on.

    • Hi Dave. Great Clips salons are independently owned franchises so the owner has the ultimate say in what prices they want to charge. The prices above are common at many Great Clips locations. Depending on area, they can be higher so for the EXACT price at a location near you, you’d need to contact the salon directly.

  2. At our great clips in Oswego, Illlinois the age for a Childs haircut is thru age 10. After that they charge adult price. Since when is a child an adult at age 11? I will be going elsewhere from now on.

    • Unfortunately, standard Great Clips policy (may vary with some franchises) is that a “child” is considered to be 10 or younger. Many other hair salons use the “12 and under” rule but you also have to consider how their “child” price compares to the Great Clips “adult” price.

      No hair salon (as far as I know) offers Child haircuts up to 18 years of age (which is considered adulthood in the US).

  3. I have been going to Great Clips for years now and everytime I go there, i ask for a certain kind of haircut and it always surprises me that they always do it better then i asked for. Thank you Great Clips.

  4. Just tried to get a haircut at Sunset Fred Meyer Great Clips. Looked on the computer. It said zero waiting. Got there in 5 minutes. One guy was getting a haircut. Started to sit and wait, but someone came out of the back room and tried to find me in the computer. Finally found me but just then another guy came in from outside, and they took him instead of me! Figured he had registered on the computer, so I sat and waited for 15 minutes. After about 10, another guy came in. A chair finally opened up, but again they took the guy who had come in after me!! That was too much. I left. What the hell kind of system are your shops using?

    • That definitely sounds like some kind of mix up. Are you sure both the other customers didn’t use online checkin and were ahead of you in line? If not, it sounds like a poor training issue. My husband ALWAYS uses online check-in at Great Clips and it works great. But again, since each salon is an independently owned franchise, the service can vary from one to another.

    • Appointment is being made online to cut your hair in Great Clips, that’s why the people coming after you were offered the chair.

  5. Hi I was wondering if I told the person who is doing my hair to surprise me can you guess how much that would cost or somewhere around the price?

  6. I am looking to find out if you do perms and if so where and when and how much please let me know as soon as possible thank you

  7. We have THREE Great Clips in Napa CA, TWO have reopened, but the one I have ALWAYS gone to on California Blvd has said “Temporarily Closed” since the had to close due to COVID-19 since the start of pandemic. NOW it says “Temporarily closed” with “Special Hours” in red underneath.?????????????????

    • I know it’s frustrating. Usually the salon is at the mercy of what the county says but if 1 of 3 Great Clips locations is open, it may be a staffing issue or other problem specific to that salon. Calling the salon would be your best bet since salon hours according to Google are sometimes not entirely accurate during this time.

  8. 07/17/2020. Here in Vancouver Washington, plain ‘ol adult haircuts are $19.00. Wow. Pre-covid was easily under $15. AND they always had a $7.00 coupon running!! Shame on you for price gouging!!!

  9. Seems to be very location dependent. I just got a plain old haircut for $15 yesterday here in Boise (same as before COVID). Of course, I just got a Great Clips coupon in the mail today for a $9.99 haircut. Go figure.

  10. Every time we go to a Great Clips they always mess up, either they don’t make them short enough, they do the wrong style, or who knows what else. One time we went there and a guy made us uncomfortable because he kept playing with my daughter’s and kept saying how beautiful it was it’s not necessarily what he said, but it just didn’t feel right. The only reasons we keep coming back is location and they were the cheapest. Now that my husband died I have no transportation…

  11. At the Great Clips in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, the price for a Senior Haircut abruptly went from $12 to $15. I guess they want to punish their customers for the pandemic.
