Dear Manager,

My mom and I went there to get our haircut and we waited about an hour and a half for a certain person. When it was finally my mom‘s turn she had a certain way she wanted it to be cut. The lady said she couldn’t do it because there was not a picture to show what it looked like.

Please tell her that it was not very nice to not following the Great Clips pledge that you have posted on the wall. I hope that you will talk to her.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this letter.


Jackie Jay
