Veterans and military members can get a free haircut at Great Clips on Nov. 11


Be sure to pass this deal along to any military members or veterans in your life: Great Clips is offering free haircuts on Nov. 11.

Military members or veterans can visit a Great Clips salon for a free haircut on the spot. Or, they can opt to get a free haircut card to be used later.

“While not all of us have served in the military ourselves, most of us know at least one veteran who we would like to thank,” according to Great Clips.

The haircut gift cards are redeemable until Dec. 31.

“With this annual promotion, we give everyone a way to thank a veteran on Veterans Day. And we give veterans more than a one-day event to redeem their free haircut card,” according to Great Clips.

There’s a way for civilians to give back, too. When you purchase a service at a Great Clips salon on Nov. 11, you’ll get a free haircut card to give to a veteran that you know.
