A chain of walk-in haircut stores throughout
the United States.
They offer a range
of services, from dry cut for $10 to a
$30 wash, cut and style; coloring etc.
When founded in 1975, Supercuts offered a new
service for the public, differing from traditional
barber shops and beauty salons.
Their idea was to create a store where customers
could get a quality haircut at a reasonable price,
without the inconvenience of having to make an
appointment. They also offered a 'menu' of services
customers could choose from, pick and choose. Their
stylists are required to produce a quality cut in
20 minutes, be licensed cosmetologists, and must be
recertified every seven months.
Also new to the industry was their compensation policy.
They were the first to provide stylists with regular
salaries, as opposed to the commission basis.
With every stylist following the same procedure,
there was no longer any need for stylists to
build their own personal clientele.
The first Supercuts store was opened in the fall of 1975
in Albany, California, and was an instant success. Today
there are 1,192 Supercuts locations in the U.S. and
