Staffing Support

Great Clips offers several recruiting strategies to find recruiting success. Our stylists' website attracts more than 41,000 stylist and manager applications every year throughout North America. Those applicants are forwarded immediately to our local franchisees. Additionally, Great Clips has long-term relationships in the industry with leading cosmetology schools that can help drive staff to your door.

Great Technology

Our unique online Check-In application allows customers to check wait times and add their names to a wait list.  Once the app is opened, the nearest Great Clips salons will appear on a map based on the customer’s location. Customers need only touch their desired salon location and then add their name to the wait list of a Great Clips salon before they arrive.

Launched in 2011, the app was the first of its kind in the haircare industry.
