Shears Salute: Thank a Veteran With a Free Haircut

Our veterans are true heroes who deserve our admiration and gratitude. It isn't uncommon to want to walk up to the men and women we see in uniform to thank them for devoting their lives to preserve our freedom, and now you can do even more. Great Clips' "Thank A Veteran" promotion is offering free haircuts to United States military veteran as a small gesture of thanks for their service to our country.

On Veterans Day, November 11, 2013, customers who come in for a haircut at any local or U.S. Great Clips salon will receive a free haircut card to give to an active, inactive or retired military member of any branch, including the National Guard. Military members are also welcome to come in on Veterans Day for a free haircut, or to pick up a free haircut card to use any day before the end of the year. Free haircut cards will also be promoted through the Great Clips website, and the company's Facebook page, allowing customers to send a virtual thank you card.

According to Great Clips CEO, Rhoda Olsen, the company is "honored to help the entire nation show appreciation for the men and women who have served our country… It's one small way to show you truly care and appreciate their service."

Free haircut cards will be handed out to all customers on November 11, 2013 with the purchase of any service (limit one card per customer). Free haircut cards are redeemable by veterans at any U.S. Great Clips from November 11 - December 31, 2013 with proof of military service.

“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.”
