In the early 1990s, Gordon Logan recognized the huge potential, and relative lack of competition, in the men’s and boys’ haircut market. He wanted to create a place where guys could take care of one of life’s necessities – a haircut – and say “This is my kind of place; I feel comfortable here” when they walked in the door. Assembling a group of passionate industry professionals, Gordon and his team worked together to develop the unique Sport Clips Haircuts concept we know today. While the Sport Clips logo and store design have changed since the first location opened in Austin, Texas in 1993, Gordon’s goal, and Sport Clips’ mission – to provide a “championship haircut experience in an exciting sports-themed environment” – remains the same.
The Sport Clips Experience redefines men’s haircuts
Sport Clips stylists know that guys don’t think about haircuts 24/7. That’s their job. That’s why they made Sport Clips, where they specialize in haircuts for men and boys. They’ve turned something you have to do, into something you want to do.
Sport Clips is like no other place you’ve ever gotten your hair cut. Sports everywhere, TVs everywhere – playing sports! And “guy-smart” stylists who know how to give men like you the haircut you want, and the haircut you need.
You don’t ever need an appointment at Sport Clips. And you’ll walk out feeling like an MVP, especially if you take advantage of their MVP experience, which includes:
- Precision Haircut – Consultation and a Precision MVP Haircut by a Guy-Smart Stylist
- Legendary Hot Steamed Towel
- Massaging Shampoo – TEa TRee shampoo & leave-in conditioner
- Relaxing Treatment – Relaxing neck and shoulder treatment leaves you refreshed
Sport Clips are making a difference in all 50 states!
Sport Clips recognizes that each community has needs, and that being involved means building relationships. It means stepping in, bridging gaps, and working selflessly to positively affect the lives of others. The Sport Clips team members embrace the spirit of caring and giving of themselves. They believe there is value in working towards a common philanthropic goal – it enriches the lives of all those who participate.
Whether giving is defined by providing “Haircuts for the Homeless,” fund raising for a local school in need, or volunteering to clean communities devastated by flooding, we believe that “givers always gain.”
When you get involved in your community, and in some small way make a difference in someone’s life, no amount of money can buy that feeling.
It is their strong ties to the community which inspired Sport Clips to be a part of our Texas Sponsor A Highway® program. And just like everything else in Texas, they went big with their sponsorship by putting their name on 12 signs. Which means with Sport Clips, you not only get a clean haircut, but clean highways as well. We appreciate their generous participation in this valuable program.
At Sport Clips Haircuts they believe in giving back to the communities in which they live and work. Through their Haircuts with Heart programs, Sport Clips’ Team Members embrace charitable endeavors that make a difference in the lives of our veterans, families and children. The spirit of giving is demonstrated by the generous donation of time and the contributions that have been raised for the various organizations they support, which include:
- St. Baldrick’s Foundation
- American Red Cross
- Help A Hero
- Ageless Aviation Dreams
- Aleethia Foundation
- Veterans Airlift Command
Teamwork with heart
At the heart of Sport Clips’ culture is their values system, which was inspired by the same core values Coach Lou Holtz used to build championship football teams: “Do Your Best. Do What’s Right. Treat Others the Way They Want to Be Treated.” Gordon and his family put these values to action in 2013 when they pledged to donate $1 million to Georgetown, Texas-area nonprofits, where Sport Clips, Inc. is based, and have been recognized for their philanthropic work with numerous programs including Habitat for Humanity, R.O.C.K, and the Boys and Girls Club, and the Gratitude Initiative.
As a veteran, Gordon has also made it his mission to support the military. He has received the VFW’s famed “Citizenship Award”, and since 2007, Sport Clips stores across the nation have worked together to raise nearly $5 Million for the VFW Foundation through our annual “Help A Hero” fundraiser, which has helped thousands of deployed and hospitalized U.S. service members call home through the VFW’s Operation Uplink™ and is providing scholarships for veterans transitioning to civilian careers.
