Our Industry

Why the Hair Cutting Industry?

The hair cutting industry continues to grow with the population and is considered by many to be recession resistant. (Our experience the past few years validates that.) Sport Clips is dedicated to growing our same store sales faster than the industry norms, achieving a disproportionate market share in each market we enter. Franchising within this industry is a strong decision, and one that you can feel good about. Sport Clips offers an exciting hair care franchise opportunity to entrepreneurs in the United States and Canada and we cater to the men and boys segment, a (very large) niche within the larger hair cutting market.

Look at the facts:

Why Men’s Hair Care?

Sport Clips focuses on a well-defined niche in the hair cutting industry: providing a hair cutting experience designed specifically for men and boys. We create an environment men enjoy and look forward to.

There are many reasons why men’s hair care is a great industry to go into:

Sport Clips Differentiator in the Hair Cutting Industry

In the early 90s, there were numerous salon chains marketing to the broad audience, the “family haircutter”, but none were targeting the men’s and boys’ haircut market. Barbershops had been declining in number for many years, and men and boys were being left by the wayside as their favorite barbers closed up shop.

Men’s and boys’ hair care is a large niche with very little direct competition, and delivery of the service is fairly simple to execute. In June of 1993, Gordon Logan opened the prototype Sport Clips store in Austin, Texas with cash flow from his then-existing full service salon business, focusing on providing men’s and boys’ hair care in a comfortable, quick, and easy, sports-themed environment.

Sport Clips utilizes a more streamlined system. It’s easier to train stylists for men’s haircuts, unlike other concepts that deal with more types of training, such as chemical and color work in addition to staying on top of women's haircut trends. Clients receive a haircut from stylists who specialize in men’s and boys’ hair care and who have all completed training in the Sport Clips All Star haircutting system. Ultimately, success in any industry comes from giving the type of customer experience your ideal customers want.
