Like a movie executive adapting a supernatural espionage novel into a Hollywood screenplay, a salon stylist takes hair, shortens it, and adds creative touches to cover up any suggestion of lycanthropy. Edit out loose strands with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get a haircut at Great Clips (up to a $15 value). This Groupon is valid at all 142 Chicago-area locations.
Chopping locks at more than 3,000 locations throughout North America, Great Clips employs an army of stylists that stays on top of trends with a rigorous ongoing training program. In addition to leveraging products from Redken, Matrix, and American Crew, the resident hairdoers call on Great Clips’s own Solutions and Tea Tree lines to beautify manes faster than a lion tamer brandishing a shampoo-dipped whip. Overgrown head-hedges are trimmed into lavish labyrinths during convenient, hassle-free walk-in cuts, which are further simplified with queue-skipping mobile-phone app check-ins.
