Salon chain seeks advice on hairy situations

Great Clips has launched a social media contest in which the salon chain will pay participants for sharing helpful advice on how to get through hairy situations.

The “Write a Helpful Note Win a C-Note” contest is scheduled to run through Feb. 28 on Facebook and will challenge participants to come up with helpful notes on uncomfortable life situations posted on the page. Winners will receive $100 bills.

The social media campaign promotes a new initiative dubbed “Clip Notes” in which hair stylists update notes about individual clients on computers. That way, stylists can offer the same haircuts to those clients on subsequent visits.

Great Clips operates a total of 3,200 locations in the United States and Canada, including locations in Grand Junction. For more information, visit
