Great Clips in Irvine is a terrible place to get your haircut, unless you're tight on the budget. I wouldn't say Great Clips is as worse as having your buddy cut your hair but it's down there with the do-it-yourself flo-bee. The reason why Great Clips gets business is because of their irresistible price and the fact that it is close to UCI. If you have a simple hairstyle that anyone can cut, come here. Otherwise, you're in for a world of trouble.
My advice? Don't skimp out on your haircut, unless you don't mind looking silly for the next 3 weeks.
