If you’re a veteran or active military member in need of a quick pick-me-up this weekend, you might want to head to your local Great Clips.

The hair salon is offering free haircuts for active and retired military members on Veterans Day. All you have to do is show your military ID or DD 214 form and the haircut is yours.

The deal is only good on Sunday, Nov. 11, but if you’re not in need of a haircut at the moment, you can pick up a free haircut card instead. The card may be used through Dec. 31.

If you’re not a veteran, you can even pick up the free haircut card for someone else if you purchase a service at Great Clips on Nov. 11.
