Mission: It's Gonna Be Great!
Represent a great brand!
Great haircuts start with great stylists.
Great growth opportunities
“I started my career working in a full-service salon, but soon discovered that I was allergic to many of the harsh chemicals we used for coloring hair, so I had to leave. Just when I was thinking I’d have to consider a new career, a friend told me to check out Great Clips since they don’t do coloring or waxing. After applying for a job, I was hired, and I’ve never been happier in my career. It never feels like work because I love spending my days with my great co-workers and I get to meet new people every day and make them look and feel great! Great Clips is a wonderful company to work for, and I am thankful to be a part of it.”
"I came to work for Great Clips soon after moving to another state. I found myself starting over and knew that this company could provide me with an instant clientele and that I would be able to make money without worrying about starting somewhere new. I love my shop because of the family feel I get from my coworkers. I look forward to to coming to work because it feels like home."
“I’ve been with Great Clips for more than six years, and I’m loving every minute of it! I get to make people feel better about themselves every day, and I work with a great group of stylists. I’ve always loved doing hair and learning new techniques that are taught to me by Great Clips corporate staff.”
“I’ve always wanted to be a hairstylist, so as soon as I finished high school, I enrolled in cosmetology school. During school, I was told that I needed to work for a full-service salon to make really good money, so I checked out all my options. It was important that I made money right away and that there were education and growth opportunities — Great Clips turned out to be the place for me! Within one month of working, I was promoted to assistant manager, and then six months later, I was managing my own salon! I’ve been with Great Clips for eight years now and am managing two salons. I absolutely love my job!”

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Great Clips (Charleston, SC) in August 2014.
It was the best interview I have ever had. I met with the franchisee of the market and she was so sweet. She made me feel right at ease.
