The first SportClips store was opened in Georgetown, Texas in 1993 by Gordon Logan. He wanted to open a store that was geared towards men who didn’t want to open a women’s hair salon.  By striving to give men a quick and male-friendly environment with stylists that specialized in men’s hair, he successfully gave men a new place to get their hair cut.

By 2015, SportClips will be in all fifty states of the United States with a hundred and seventy franchises and company stores open.  Out of all of their franchises, they’ve only had to close four since 2010, giving themselves an excellent success rate since they started franchising in 1995.

SportClips values the male customer and strives to decorate their stores with sports memorabilia to give their stores a winning attitude that offers outstanding service to their customers.  They strive to pull future hairdressers into their stores in order to continue their service of excellence.
