HOW ONLINE CHECK IN WORKS
1. Tap the big blue button to see Great Clips salon locations on a map including wait times. Location services must be turned on to see salons near you. If not, you can search by postal code or city.
2. Tap the salon where you want to check in.
3. Enter your name and phone number. If you’re bringing friends or family, tap the + to select the number of guests. Tap the Check Me In button.
Now that you are checked in, it’s time to get the quality haircut or service that you deserve!
Estimated wait times assume you are getting the next available stylist when you check in. All Great Clips stylists are licensed cosmetologists or barbers. You can request a stylist upon arrival at the salon but, if you do so, your wait may be longer.
For safety and privacy reasons, we do not publish stylist schedules through the App.

Makes no difference in wait time
The implication is that checking in on-line is the same a checking in at the shop as long as you show up before the estimated wait time is up. I showed up with 1 minute left on the app and there were other people waiting who were helped before me. So either those customers had checked in before I did on line—in which case the estimated wait time was way off—or the employees helped customers who checked in after I did online even though I showed up before the estimated time expired. Either way, it makes no difference. Perhaps it helps the corporation collect marketing data, but it does not seem a benefit for customers.
Misleading and Fairly Pointless
It's pretty much a map to Great Clips near you and allows them to quickly access your profile (the standard haircut you get) if you get your hair cut the exact same every time, so basically if you're 5 or 65 years old.
The app implies that when you check in if you arrive before the wait time is up you will be checked in and ready. This is not the case. I have left with 16 and 18 minute waits in the past only to nearly arrive to the salon and have the wait time jump from 2 or 3 minutes back to 15 or 20. The check in does not secure you a spot if during your travel/wait time three people show up, you will be bumped back.
Totally useless app
Just like others, I signed in on line, arrived on time, and had to wait for other customers who didn't use the app but signed in at the desk immediately in front of me. I recently bought a pre-paid card with 10 hair cuts. I wish I hadn't for this reason as well as the quality of hair cuts really aren't very good. The ladies don't listen to your requests and simply cut the way they want to. Over all, very disappointed in Great Clips. It's cheap and if you can't afford anything more or a "G.I. hair cut" is all you need, go for it.
