Monster Trucks and Hair Cuts

I need a haircut. My greys are showing and it keeps curling in weird directions.

My hair’s gone fluffy!

Every time I get used to a new barber, they move, quit, or just plain disappear. Do they know how hard it is to find the right person with the exact right balance of knowing exactly how to cut my hair, to keep the small talk either really brief or super interesting and to really squash my head when rubbing in the conditioner?

I’ve heard some pretty great things about Great Clips, so I found my local one on the app, which is super handy. and even downloaded their app. You can check-in online, and get haircut reminders. It’ll also tell you how long the wait time is.

The best thing, to me, though is that they have Clip Notes, a technology that allows stylists to keep notes on a customer’s haircut and is accessible at any Great Clips salon. So even if the person you saw last time isn’t there, or you need to pop into a different salon, they know what you like. I wonder if it has a section to really remind them to crush my head when washing it? Is it weird that I mentioned that twice now?

Great Clips is currently 150 salons strong in Canada and growing. Great Clips provides value-priced, high-quality haircare for men, women, and children. They make it easy for customers to get a great haircut at a time and place that’s convenient for them (and they’re open evenings and weekends, no appointments necessary).

There, that’s better!

Ok, my hair’s all done and I’ve got a hot date! Well, not a date, but my friend, blogger, and fellow #5DadsGoneWild camper, Michael Kwan.

As a proud sponsor of the Monster Jam Great Clips Mohawk Warrior®, Great Clips sent us to Monster Jam event in Vancouver.

The Great Clips Mohawk Warrior® is awesome! It’s black and purple, super loud, and you guessed it, has a huge mohawk hairstyle on top!

Want to see it do a bunch of consecutive backflips? Of course you do!

    I would give this to my 19 year old son. He gets his hair cut so often and Great Clips is his go-to so this would be perfect for him.
