The man who allegedly held up a series of only Great Clips locations around Wicker Park and Lincoln Park and the 'burbs has been nabbed. Though nobody was hurt in any of the robberies, the cash pull from his last adventure on Ashland was a menial $250.
Now, a haircut at Great Clips is $9.99 before noon and $13.00 anytime after noon. Expect to pay $4 more for a scalp massage. This is compared to $15.95 at Supercuts in the Illinois Center with color add-ons fetching a minimum of $25. Any simple mathmagician regardless of whether or nor he can carry on a conversation with his stylist can see that Supercuts has the higher yield. Anywho, he's in custody now.
