Sport Clips opened in Dripping Springs last week, celebrating the occasion with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The ribbon cutting, sponsored by the Dripping Springs Chamber of Commerce, took place on Tuesday, June 7. Members of the chamber and community were invited to tour the new hair salon and watch its stylists in action.
Gordon Logan founded Sport Clips Haircuts in 1993 when he realized the enormous potential of the haircut market for men and boys. Shortly after opening the first location in Austin, the brand expanded to Houston and Dallas, then franchised in 1995. Within five years, Sport Clips had opened 50 stores, and in 2007 the company celebrated its 400th and 500th store openings.
Today, Sport Clips is the only national hair care franchise with locations in all 50 states of the United States, with nearly 1,900 locations. The Dripping Springs Sport Clips mark the 17th location in the Austin area.
“Dripping Springs is a growing community, and we’re excited to expand to bring our customers expert haircuts in this new location,” said Phillip Ewing, operations manager for the new store.
Located in the Belterra shopping district, Sport Clips offers a variety of haircut services, including the “MVP Experience”, which includes a precision haircut, massage shampoo, steam hot towel and a neck and shoulder treatment. Its stylists are specifically trained to be “men’s hair pros” and the laid-back sports-themed atmosphere provides a comfortable and welcoming environment for its all-male clientele.
Sport Clips in Dripping Springs will provide free “MVP upgrades” to all new customers who purchase a haircut service. Hours of operation are Sunday through Thursday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
