Hairstyles for men only
I knew it . . . Just wrote about it about a week ago. I knew we would start seeing new variations on the theme of hair salons who specialize in hairstyles for men only and it’s about time too!
Now not only have we got the high end men’s barbershops opening, but a lower to mid-priced franchise for men and boys is ranked as one of the top 50 fastest growing franchises in the country per Paul Bird of the Indianapolis Star. The franchise named “Sports Clips”, originated in Texas in 1994 by Gordon Logan and now has over 340 shops across the country. The Sports Clips name may be taking some liberties from the Minnesota based Great Clips franchise name.
Great Clips has done extremely well byThis hairstyles for
is sure to do well. catering to a market who can walk in without appointments and expect good service at a reasonable price. My guess is Sports Clips won’t hurt themselves by having a similar namesake. But I’ll bet my good friend Ray Barton CEO at Great Clips has spent a few bucks with the 3 piece trademark attorney’s over their use of this name. Quite frankly, I don’t know how Ray and his counterparts at the other franchises let this one slip through their fingers. This hairstyles for men franchise is sure to do well. And would have been a no-brainer for Great Clips.
Sports Clips has a large-screen televisions in the waiting area and more scattered throughout the store tuned into . . . what else . . . sporting events. Services are reasonably priced at $11.00 for a boys hair cut and $14.00 for men. To get the ” MVP” service which includes a shampoo cut, condition, steamed facial towel and a neck and shoulder massage it will cost you only $19.00. In the store in Indianapolis.
My guess is, if they can do as well as Great Clips in training staff to give good service, they are well on their way to success! Good luck Sports Clips, it’s good to give the men back their own salons.
