I hate this place. This is the 6th time I came to get a haircut and the lady messed it up. I showed 3 photos and told her I wanted a long hair flip and she cut almost all my hair off. In the front is super short it looks super ugly and looks like the haircut I did not ever wish to have. I hate Great Clips. Don’t ever go there.

I had so much hair I needed a haircut badly and I went in air with a coupon. I'm gonna go to a nicer salon next time. I should have done that all along. Every time I look at my hair cut that I just got from Great Clips a few days ago it upsets me. 1st off she shampooed my hair and then tried to comb it out and just made a big huge massive knot in my hair and she decided she was. Gonna cut all those knocks off and then she made another gigantic massive knot in my hair like most of my hair was in one big knot it was. Like a rat's nest. I have a or had long Auburn thick curly hair but it was so long that the curls weren't really there anymore and I always kept it in. A braid because it was so long. So so when I realized what she had done she had been shaking the entire time and I finally stood up to see what her progress was and that's. When I saw the huge massive knot. She didn't know what to do.

I had to take over and get out all the nuts itself which she was helpful in getting me conditioner and stuff like that. I actually felt pretty bad for her once The shock of what she had done wore off a little bit. Anyways so we get through all the knots and finally to the actual final haircut and one Half of my hair was longer than the other side like significantly so I told. Her? And when I got home it was still super uneven. It's so uneven and I got more than a Foot of hair cut. It's awesome and it's a little shorter than I would have liked. But that's fine my hair will grow back she just. She had no clue what she was doing. I'm not sure she's even gone to hair school. I mean anyone who's gonna hair school. You would think would be a little bit better than that.

She was a nice lady but she was not a good hairstylist. One more thing it would have been nice to have an opportunity to relax get my hair combed and cut. You know I have a two-year-old baby so it was sort of a treat for me to get to do this. I hadn't got my haircut in three years. So my final recommendation is go somewhere else.

    3601 South Houston leave rd. Here Ricky works who don’t know nothing.. He is good at playing bad jokes and not even good at clean shave.. First I asked him to put some hair and he did something wrong and applied lot of water on head and started playing bad jokes .. I suggest another one in this store than him.

    I would give 0 stars if that was an option. I have been here several times with Lori cutting my hair... always an amazing job. I went in yesterday to have my hair cut for an upcoming special event. I was informed that Lori was off but was assured that she was an expert in the cut I wanted. After seeing quickly as she moved the mirror around... I needed to leave before I lost it!! The back of my hair was very short uneven choppy but just on the left side, long strands all over! The cut was not even close to the picture I showed her. I had to stop to get gas on my way home. While crying my eyes out pumping gas. I was approached by a lady who said "oh honey you must have grandkids who cut your hair while you were asleep"... "Uh no ma'am it was actually cut by a licensed professional!!"

    This stylist needs to lose her job and seek more schooling!! This was the WORST haircut I have ever got in my almost 50 years of life. Now I have a haircut as short of a man after I had a very good stylist try her best to fix it when I went in with hair to my shoulders! Thanks for making me feel so special and have to attend my special event looking like a man!!!! I have never in my life cried so much. Yes it will grow back but not for month and months and before my event. She should have to pay for extensions to put my hair the actual length I ask for!

    On May third I took my Mom for her birthday to the one on Hansel, and we both got haircuts. The two women stylist weren’t happy to see us as soon as they opened. They said, "What are you doing up before noon?" These weren’t the usual stylists we go to there. They only cut the back of both our hairs and the one used a straight razor on my Mom's hair without asking and she hates having it cut with that. They did a horrible job on both our hairs. I was so embarrassed because this was a gift to my Mom.

    Anyway I went up to pay and the tip came up of course and I don’t feel right not leaving one regardless of how bad so I pressed ten dollars. Well she took it upon herself to add ten dollars to each one of theirs. Why would I give a 10 dollar tip for a sixteen dollar haircut? And one I hated besides. I will not go back unless the older lady and the young guy are there. They aren’t lazy and give very good cuts and they are nice too. I would look into those two if I was in charge because I’m sure we aren’t the only ones dissatisfied.

    This place is a scam. They take your money and don't give you what you want in return. I don't even know why it is called "Great Clips," because nothing about it is great. I asked for a specific haircut, even showed them a picture of it, and they go on to do the exact opposite of what I ask. The barber asked me, "You think this haircut is good?" which makes me assume she doesn't like it. I still told her I wanted it, and she went on to ruin my next 3 weeks of life. Honestly, the only good part about going to Great Clips for a haircut is to find an excuse to wear a hood in class for the next 3 weeks to hide your hideous haircut. And if the teachers really care about your mental well-being, they will let the hood slide.

    These barbers get paid to do the opposite of what satisfies the customers. I ask for a little off the top, and they damn near shave the whole thing off. I ask for a taper, and they fade the entire backside of my head. But because it's cheap, I went back a few times in hopes of finding a good barber in there, but quick to find out, literally none of the barbers know what they are doing. It's like they mess up on purpose so they can get paid in hopes of us coming back. Go to Great Clips at your own risk, just know you will NOT get satisfied. I almost cried after my last haircut there, because it was honestly horrendous. If you don't care how your hair looks, feel free and give these scammers bank. But if you really want a good cut, Great Clips is not the way to go.

    I will never go to Great Clips again. They try and do your hair as fast as possible and they always turn out terrible. If you are trying to get a terrible haircut come to great clips. Great clips=joke.

    I am an uncle, and I was going to the preschool to play with little kids. I decided to get a haircut... This haircut is so bad I considered going bald. From the racist barber to the bald spot in the back of my head honestly I couldn't have been less satisfied. Even the 5 year old kids were laughing at me. My hairline was bad but when I say McDonald's cut I mean Walmart, off brand, 2 dollar homeless person cut. The back of my head was dryer than the Sahara Desert and more curved a full circle. This cost 40 dollars to have and expensive ** whooping haircut. These people must be blind 'cause I could cut my own hair better with my eyes closed.

    The undercut that I asked for wasn't even close to the one they gave me. It was terrible. They didn't even make it straight. I'm embarrassed to tie my hair up because of the haircut they gave me. They charged me 22.00$ for it and it was bad. I wouldn't even pay 1.00$ for it. I'm never getting a haircut at Great Clips again. I hope this was helpful and have a great day.

    It is not good for teenagers because their style is different. They always make it too short from the top back and too long from the front so I would recommend going to a different barber shop. I have always hated Great Clips
