ESTIMATED WAIT TIME
Estimated wait times assume you are getting the next available stylist. You can request a stylist upon arrival at the salon but your wait may be longer. For safety and privacy reasons, we do not publish stylist schedules.
WHEN IS ONLINE CHECK-IN AVAILABLE?
Customers can check in online during the hours the salon is open. Online Check-In will not be available during the first five minutes a salon is scheduled to be open. This gives customers who are physically in the salon when it opens a chance to be checked in and have their names added to the waitlist. We accept online check-in up until 30 minutes before closing time. You can still get a haircut at closing time, you just can't check in on the app.
CAN I USE ONLINE CHECK-IN FOR MORE THAN A HAIRCUT?
Yes, you can use Online Check-In for all services except perms and formal updos. Please note that not all salons offer perms. And, most salons require an appointment for these services, so please call the salon to inquire.
WHAT DO I DO IF I DON’T HAVE A MOBILE DEVICE?
You can check in from any device that has internet (a smartphone, iPad, computer, etc.). Go to greatclips.com, click on Find a Salon or Check In. Enter your postal code or address and you'll be using Online Check-In in no time! If you don't have an Internet connection, you can always walk right in to any salon and add your name to the list.
WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE AT THE SALON?
After you've checked in online, you will see what place you are in on the waitlist. You'll want to arrive to the salon before you are next in line. If you'd like to receive a text message when your estimated wait time reaches 15 minutes, you can sign up for ReadyNext® text alerts. Once you arrive at the salon, let the stylists know you're there, and they will confirm your information and finish your check in.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I ARRIVE LATE?
We understand: Things happen! Don't worry if you lose your keys, spill something, or get stuck in traffic. We'll keep your name on the list for a short period of time.
HOW DO I CANCEL MY CHECK IN?
Once you are checked in, the salon will appear on the home screen. Cancel at any time by tapping Cancel check-in.
With this app update, we are keeping things high and tight. Some bugs were fixed and small enhancements were made, all to make the app work just a little better and keep you looking your best!
Ratings and Reviews
I love the app and the two people that cut our hair did an amazing job. However I came back to try and redeem two coupons the the manager immediately got an attitude with me and would not allow me to redeem the two coupons sent to me in the mail. I paid over $65 for two haircuts and she was unwilling to void out my transaction and allow me to use these two coupons. I said I run a business and know she could very easily void out the previous transaction, but she had the audacity to say that I was offending her. So I asked if she could allow me to use these coupons for next time and extend the expiration date. Once again she gave me attitude and if it wasn’t for a customer in the lobby coming to my defense she wouldn’t have given me that option. She clearly is having a bad day and I certainly didn’t mean to cause her any grief. I hope her days gets better! My experience with the two individuals that cut my sons hair and my hair was amazing but the minute I engaged with your store manager she was extremely offensive! I’ll be back and I hope I don’t have to deal with her again

Great Clips - Great App
We have been using this very helpful app since it came out. It does what it was designed to do and does it well without a bunch of advertising or other junk. It has seen numerous improvements over the years. It is very convenient to be able to check in and know how much time I have to run other errands before my scheduled time. The text updates is one of the best improvements made recently.
A couple of features I would like to see in a future update:
1 - The ability to track coupons via the app. I regularly get them in the mail or on the back of my receipt but like many people lose them before they can be used which is a bummer.
2 - to be able to review the name of the stylist and their notes about the cut for the last couple of visits. The stylist usually prints the notes from the receipt printer (I think) to review the notes left by the last stylist. It would be helpful to know what one stylist did on one cut and then what another did that would make the cut even better. Plus I have a terrible memory for names so when a stylist does a great job I forget their name and can’t ask for him or her on the next visit.
It’s a great app that performs it function perfectly every time I have used it which is at least once a month or more for many years!!

Pitiful if your blind
Its pathetic that I as a blind person cannot use the app because of how poorly created it is. I should not need a sighted person helping me every time "I want to make an appointment" On "MY PHONE!" Please, will someone hire some blind people with apple devices and have them beta test this with voiceover? If you don't know what I'm talking about, settings>General>Accessibility>Voiceover. Or, Just ask Siri to turn on Voiceover. Its an accessible feature for the blind and low vision that allows someone like myself, to write a poor review on apps like this that lack a lot from mislabeled buttons to not even having the check-in button anywhere within reading range of my phones accessibility features to pick up when I'm moving my finger across the screen. Not trying to rip into yall, but too many businesses make excuses as to why they don't make things available for everyone including the blind. Too much money, would ruin the layout... I'll just say this now. Its cheep. Also, theres ways of doing it that will not kill your layout. There is a lot of blind folks out there who are computer programmers who work along with sighted computer programmers, especially at Apple. Look at a lot of apples products for a day with your eyes closed, and just using voiceover on your iPhones. Now, do the same thing with your app and you'll see what I mean. Please, I beg of you to fix this.
