Go hatless with confidence during March Madness®

March Madness can take a lot out of fans…and their hair! Many fans wear a hat to hide their disheveled hair and support their team, but rocking a fresh haircut from Great Clips can give you the confidence to leave your flow uncovered. This March, as the official hair salon of the NCAA, we’re asking fans to go Hats Off along with the college basketball players. Ditch the hat and let your style shine through your great hair with our tips for hatless hair confidence!  


1. Give your hair team spirit

From face paint to foam fingers, finding your gameday style can be part of your identity as a fan. And nothing elevates your favorite jersey like a statement hairstyle! Try rocking your team’s signature colors in your hair with ribbon or hair paint. Experiment with hair-safe paint or colorful wax to show your team spirit or add a hair ribbon as the third strand in your braid. You could also secure a few strands of ribbon to a hair tie before putting your hair in a ponytail.


2. Try and ultimate fan hairstyle

Whether you're sitting courtside or couch-side, your hair can help your team spirit shine! Try out an ultimate fan hairstyle while you're cheering on your favorite team during March Madness. And nothing screams superfan like the iconic mohawk. If you're not ready to commit to shaving your head, try out a fauxhawk. You can easily achieve this look at home by using a gel to style your hair to create a spike in the center of your head. Or you can try a bubble ponytail or French braid to keep your hair off your face all-game-long for big celebrations.


3. Find your perfect product line-up

We know a bad hair day won't stop a basketball superfan from missing out on March Madness activities! Instead of covering your hair with a hat from your favorite team, find your combination of perfect products to lock in your hairstyle throughout even the longest games. When choosing your hair product lineup, think about your hair texture and desired style. Pomade is great for keeping frizz at bay, while gel can freeze your look in place for hours of watch time.


4. Rock your favorite players hairstyle

If you’re looking for your next signature style, give your favorite player’s haircut a try! Finding hair inspiration from your favorite college basketball star could lead you to the perfect new look. If you find your next go-to hairstyle, your local stylist will use Clip Notes to build a personal hair profile for you, ensuring you’ll have the confidence to go Hats Off after every haircut even when March Madness is over. Your perfect haircut is sure to be a slam dunk after every visit.


Don’t want to miss a single second of the game? When you find a hair routine that works, you won’t have to! Once you establish your hair type, finding the right products for washing and styling will help save you time while getting ready for your March Madness festivities.
