MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (November 1, 2021) Great Clips salons across the United States will show their continued appreciation for veteran and active military service members by offering free haircuts on Veterans Day for the ninth consecutive year.

On Thursday, November 11, veterans and active service members can go into any U.S. Great Clips salon and get a free haircut or a free haircut card for a future visit. In addition, non-military customers who get a haircut on Veterans Day at Great Clips salons can pay it forward. They will receive a free haircut card they can give to an active service member or veteran as a way of saying thank you. The cards can be redeemed for a free haircut from November 12 through December 10, 2021.

“We’re excited to continue an important tradition of showing appreciation to our military service members this Veterans Day,” said Steve Hockett, CEO of Great Clips, Inc. “This program is our way of honoring and thanking those who are committed to serving our country, and giving all customers a way to pay it forward to a service member in their own lives.”

Since the inception of this important program, Great Clips salons have provided over 1.7 million free haircuts to active and retired military service members, adding up to more than $23 million in complimentary haircuts.
