"By adding hours, we are beginning to see improvements in guest traffic, especially in our SmartStyle and Supercuts businesses," Dan Hanrahan, president and CEO, said in a news release.

Hanrahan joined the hair care company about six months ago. Prior to that he was the CEO and president of Celebrity Cruises.
