Clips of Kindness®
A SMALL GESTURE FOR THOSE FIGHTING CANCER.
All Great Clips salons in the U.S. and Canada provide complimentary clipper cuts to customers facing hair loss due to cancer treatments. It's a small gesture in the big fight against cancer and it’s our way of trying to make things just a little better for customers and their loved ones.
Anyone who is losing their hair due to cancer treatment and would like a clipper cut is welcome to go to any Great Clips salon for this service. Customers who would like family members or friends to receive clipper cuts can talk to the salon manager about details. Use the Salon Locator to find your nearest Great Clips.
Why Clips of Kindness?
Based on Great Clips Vice Chair of the Board Rhoda Olsen’s experience through her own battle with cancer, Clips of Kindness is a meaningful way for Great Clips to contribute to the fight against cancer. Rhoda approached Great Clips franchisee Jane Evans in mid-2010 and asked her to help develop a system wide program to allow Great Clips stylists to serve others in the way they are most equipped: with their skills as hair stylists.
Less than four months later, Jane was diagnosed with stage 4 metastasized breast cancer, and soon after she found herself getting her own clipper cut. In October 2011, Jane informally launched what would become “Clips of Kindness”—Great Clips first-ever system wide Great Deeds® program. On Jan. 14, 2015, Jane passed away after her battle with cancer. She leaves a legacy of love, friendship, leadership and inspiration.
