 SUPERCUTS TO HELP AMERICA'S OLYMPIANS LOOK THEIR BEST
 SAN RAFAEL, Calif., Feb. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Supercuts, the nation's


leading professional haircutting company, announced today that it will serve as the official hair salon services supplier to the 1992 U.S. Olympic Team.
 "We are proud to serve the U.S. Olympic Team in this manner," said Supercuts Vice President of Marketing Gary Gapp, "and we believe that the haircuts and styles that our country's top athletes receive at our United States Olympic Training Center (USOTC) shop will complement their individual talents."
 The company also unveiled a rendering of a Supercuts shop to be located at the USOTC in Colorado Springs. The shop is the first retail establishment in history to be located on the grounds of a U.S. Olympic Training Facility and will be constructed in a building once used as a U.S. military barracks. Athletes passing through the facility, scheduled to open in March, will receive complimentary haircutting, styling and consultation services during their stay at the training center. Olympic officials and Supercuts estimate that the shop will provide hair styling services for more than 10,000 athletes during the 10 months it will be in operation.
 "We're very excited to welcome Supercuts to the U.S. Olympic family," said John Krimsky Jr., U.S. Olympic Committee deputy secretary general. "I believe having a Supercuts shop at the training facility is a plus for our Olympians. When you consider the training schedule of the athletes, the simple task of scheduling a haircut is a major commitment. The Supercuts shop will offer our Olympians the opportunity to receive quality hair styling at their convenience."
 In keeping with the company's philosophy, no appointments will be necessary at the shop. Hair styling services for U.S. Olympic hopefuls will be provided by top Supercuts stylists from around the country who have excelled in the areas of technical quality, employee performance and customer service.
 In attendance at today's announcement was gymnast and U.S. Olympic gold medalist Bart Conner. Conner is the only American gymnast in history to win gold medals at every level of national and international competition. In 1986, the U.S. Gymnastics Federation awarded Conner the title of "The most celebrated and decorated gymnast in the history of United States Gymnastics."
 "The entire Supercuts family is looking forward to helping our nation's best athletes look their best at the Summer Olympics," said Gapp.
 Supercuts, Inc., a pioneer in the $41 billion hair care industry (source: 1991 America Salon Green Book -- estimated), operates more than 650 haircutting franchises nationwide, providing nearly 24 million haircuts annually.
