The Great Clips empire spans more than 3,000 salons across North America, where a collective of over 30,000 stylists wait, ready to tend to hairstyles. At these salons, no appointments are necessary—though an online check-in system aids those who wish to skip any potential lines by adding their names directly to the haircut queue. And to aid their new hairstyles, customers can peruse a line of gels, conditioners, pomades, and tea-tree oil shampoos and body washes.
Stylist Erin Douglas finessed her mane-molding skills at The Salon Professional Academy with a foundation in Redken techniques before setting up shop in Vintage Sky Salon. Brandishing both formaldehyde-free True Keratin solution and Mandarin solution, she strives to de-frizz naturally curly hair and straighten out politically crooked 'dos. The Mandarin formula can last up to three months, and is best suited for infusing thinner hair with a sleek shimmer and gifting tops with manageability as well as bounce without sacrificing their natural shape. Alternatively, thicker follicles are smoothened with True Zero, concocted from aminotin, vitamins A and E, and raspberries. The keratin treatment takes approximately two hours.
The stylists at XAR Hair Salon arm themselves with scissors and a slew of products—including Pureology, L'Oréal Expert, and Redken—in the pursuit of beautifying manes. They snip off split ends and imbue strands with golden highlights that complement the sunny walls and stone floors inside the salon. Stylists also expertly trim beards on men and billy goats.
