    Hi Penelope. Your boys are so cute! I love the way you photographed your experience with the boys including before & after shots! Even though my son is no longer at home, I remember all our visits to Great Clips. Plus I still go there to have my hair trimmed. Thank you & Great Clips so much for the chance to win such an incredibly generous gift card! I live in Jacksonville, Florida and visit several of them, whichever one I am closer to when running errands. Mostly the Monument Rd. location.
