Great Clips, Inc was established in 1982 and within a short span of time has become the world’s largest salon brand. With nearly 3000 salons located in United States and Canada, Great Clips has helped thousands of people discover the perfect hairstyles for nearly three decades.
Recently, the Great Clips Hair Salon team accomplished a prestigious World Guinness record. On the 14th of May, 2011 the Great Clips team located at Eastside Square in Springfield set a new world record for the most number of consecutive haircuts. The team worked for 12 hours from 8am to 8pm and had ten members. The team offered a total of 392 Guinness World Record qualified clips. The qualified clips require that a minimum of two centimeters hair length is removed. The teams’ untiring efforts can be gauged from the fact that they did not stop when they were informed that many of their hair clips were initially disqualified as they did not meet the qualification criterion. The team of ten continued and ended up successful in the end and gave Springfield its first entry into the prestigious Guinness Book of World Records.
Great Clips is famous for its great customer service which has led to the salon being recognized as one of the best salons in the market. This was displayed even during the World Record attempt when the team did not stop offering haircuts even after attaining the record. The team continued for another half hour and ensured that no customer was refused a Great Clips hair cut and an opportunity to take part in the historical event.
The Great Clips company is also known for its charitable acts. The money raised during this world record attempt was given to The Deputy Suzanne Waughtel Hopper Memorial Fund that was established for Suzanne Waughtel who was killed during a shootout on New Year’s Day. Another Great Clips team is trying to make another world record for offering most number of consecutive haircuts by a team in one week. Here’s wishing them all the best for their endeavor!
