Great Clips won Best Hair Salon.

Being a full-time student takes up a lot of time, and sometimes priorities are replaced by others to get by. For some students, that may even be the luxury of a simple haircut.  

Students have to find time for classes, homework, RSOs and sometimes work. It can be daunting trying to find the money, resources and time to grab a haircut. Luckily the students of ISU have a safe haven, Great Clips. 

Located conveniently on Main Street, Great Clips is right across from Chipotle and next to Pizza Hut. The Great Clips has been chosen by Illinois State University students as the best of BloNo, and for good reason. Great Clips has highly skilled hairstylists, who by now are quite familiar with cutting students’ hair.  

But it isn’t just the great styles they provide, it’s at an extremely fair price. The original price of a haircut is $14, however, due to Great Clips’ incredible promotions, at times you can get a haircut for the amazing price of $5. 

Mass media major Dan Blewitt claimed, “It’s the best location. Being virtually on campus is the reason I always go and I’ve never had any complaints. Probably because they hire quality stylists to work in such a high traffic location.”

If any student is looking for an establishment that’s close to campus, has a wide range of style, and is fairly priced for the average college student, then look no further than Great Clips.
