I went to Great Clips for the first time during the $4.99 a haircut deal, and was not impressed whatsoever. I specifically asked for my hair to be cut dry, and she did, so that was nice, but she hurried through my haircut faster than most male's heads are shaved. My hair is quite long, about 6 inches past my shoulders. It has a bit of a wave to it, so it's very important to get it straight & even, but she didn't even look like she cared. From then on I decided I would save the $5 and cut it myself.
