A popular franchise with more than 4,000 shops throughout the United States and Canada, Great Clips is adding Nassau County to its mailing address.
“I have been involved in franchising for quite some time, but I had never struck out on my own,” said owner Hany Mostafa who grew up in Hicksville. “I wanted to go into business for myself while also introducing something new and exciting to my hometown in Long Island.”
He felt Great Clips was a perfect fit. As a walk-in salon, the modern space provides affordable, high-quality hair care for men, women and children. Staffed by stylists who receive professional training from the company (the brand has a training center in New Jersey), Great Clips offers haircuts for all ages, shampooing, styling, trimmings (bang, neck and beard) and conditioning treatment.
Two Long Island locations are scheduled to open under Mostafa within the next few months. (There is already a Great Clips in Medford.) The first is slated to debut in East Meadow on May 7 and the second in Carle Place by July 1. Both will have welcoming environments with hardwood floors and bright lights. Convenience is also a focus with an online check-in service. “[This allows] customers to specify appointment times so the stylists are waiting for them.” Once the customer adds their name to the online list, they will also get an estimated wait time before they head to the salon.
“My hope is to develop a very strong customer base by providing the best service and the right price while also taking people’s unique needs into consideration,” Mostafa said.
Great Clips will be located at 1969 Front St in East Meadow and the Carle Place address is coming soon.
