Great Clips salons offer salon services for men, women, and children, including haircuts, shampoo, styling, trims, and conditioning treatments. Great Clips is ideal for those seeking a moderate-risk, steady growth business. Great Clips is a recession resistant business which requires a relatively low investment and allows franchisees to keep their day job while building their salon business.
Established in 1982, Great Clips started franchising in 1983 and now has more than 4,000 locations throughout the United States and Canada. Usually located in strip malls, Great Clips hair salons are open evenings and weekends and do not require appointments. No hair-care experience is required for franchisees, who operate 5 to 6 units after 5 years on average.
