Great Clips honors vets with a free haircut

Customers to be given free haircut cards to give veterans through 2013

CORBIN — Special to The Times-Tribune

When we see men and women in military uniforms, many of us want to walk up and thank them for devoting their lives to preserve our freedom. Now, you can show our appreciation by awarding active or retired U.S. military members a free haircut. It’s all part of the “Thank a Veteran” promotion from Great Clips, the world’s largest hair salon brand. Great Clips leaders say the gesture is one small thank-you for our veterans’ service to country.

Shears Salute

On Veterans Day, Monday, Nov. 11, 2013, customers who come in for a haircut at any U.S. Great Clips salon will receive a free haircut card to give to an active/inactive/retired military member of any branch, including the National Guard. Military members can also come in on Veterans Day for a free haircut or to pick up a free haircut card to use, with proof of service, any day before Dec. 31.

“We’re honored to help the entire nation show appreciation for the men and women who have served our country,” says Great Clips CEO, Rhoda Olsen, who is married to a Vietnam veteran.  “We invite everyone to come into a U.S. Great Clips salon on Veterans Day (Nov. 11) to purchase a service and pick up a free haircut card. Give the card to your veteran neighbor, family member or just someone you notice is a veteran to thank them for serving our country. It’s one small way to show you truly care and appreciate their service.”

How It Works:

Customers come into any U.S. Great Clips salon on Nov. 11 and, with the purchase of a service, receive a free haircut card to give to a veteran.

Limit one card per customer.

The free haircut cards are redeemable by veterans at any U.S. Great Clips from Nov. 11–Dec. 31, 2013 with proof of service. The promotion applies to veterans only.

Veterans who visit Great Clips in the U.S. on Nov. 11 receive either a free haircut that day or a free haircut card to redeem by Dec. 31. After Nov. 11, veterans must have a free haircut card to get the free haircut.

“Many of our franchise owners, corporate staff and Great Clips stylists have served in the military, or have family members or customers who have served, so we are all excited to be a part of this nationwide ‘thank-you’ to our men and women in uniform,” says Terri Miller, Great Clips vice president of marketing & communications. “To make sure as many veterans as possible have the opportunity to get their free haircut, we extended this promotion through the end of the year. We want to give these great people more time to visit a Great Clips and redeem this thank-you card for a free haircut in honor of their service.”
