Great Salons | About Us

About US

Starting in 2021 Sara Sutherland and Melanie Elliott became the operating partners for the organization. Sara started as a stylist in 2000 with Great Clips. She has been working in the business since then and managed the very first location ever opened in East Tennessee back in 2003. Melanie has been with the organization since 2010 and manages the home office. Together with a senior leadership team of 6 General Managers, an Assistant Director of Operations and a Talent and Education Manager we support over 50 locations in East and Middle Tennessee as well Bowling Green, Ky. 

We also believe in giving back to the community. Every year we do a charity event for East TN Childrens Hospital at the TN Valley Fair and raise thousands of dollars in donations. We also participate in the Childrens Miracle Network balloon campaign every year.
