The Franchise Times Top 200 is based on a combination of companies’ self-reported sales and unit counts, as well as other public information. Great Clips recently recorded its 24th consecutive quarter of sales growth and 19th consecutive quarter of customer growth.

Great Clips also assists owners and managers with training manuals, videos, orientations and seminars, including salon manager training, a multi-salon leadership program and an orientation program.
Tips for Getting Perfect Highlights: Make sure your lifestyle fits your new color. How long do you want to sit in the salon? How often are you willing to maintain your new streaks? A full head of highlights and a glaze could take up to three hours, so you’ll need to carve out a decent chunk of your schedule. And when it comes to upkeep, you’ll need to choose between baylage and foil highlights. The difference is that balayage, or painting, gives a more natural effect. The highlights appear to be sun-kissed and seamless as opposed to synthetic, and there’s no over-processing since once the formula dries, it stops lifting the hair color. The process is overall healthier for the hair, and look fine when they grown out, eliminating the need for a salon trip every few weeks. With foil, there’s the risk of over-processing and damaging your strands since the foils will continue to lift the color until they’re removed. The highlights are executed in straight streaks, therefore needing to be touched-up more often. Choose a color that flatters your skin tone. Even a few face-framing streaks will have a noticeable effect on how your complexion looks. Consultations with an expert stylist is key, which is why we highly suggest first-time highlighters to meet with one as opposed to trying to dye at home.
