Sport Clips' Values form the foundation upon which our reputation and success are built. They reflect the core beliefs for us to succeed. Our Values communicate what is important and what others can expect from us.

Living our Values is more than memorizing the words. It is demonstrating the Values that make up the Mission Statement, Heart of a Champion and the Three Key Questions, day-in and day-out, with everything we do and with everyone with whom we come in contact.

Mission Statement

Our Mission Statement forms the foundation upon which our reputation and success are built. It reflects the core values required for us to provide the unique Sport Clips experience. Our Mission Statement tells everyone inside and outside of Sport Clips what is important and what they can expect from us.

"To create a Championship Haircut Experience for men and boys in an exciting sports themed environment."

Heart of a Champion

Coach Lou Holtz, former head coach of two national champion football teams, sets forth three rules for life that are applicable to the Sport Clips Team as they are to his football teams. These three rules are the guiding principles or values for all that we do at Sport Clips. We expect all of our Team Members to live by the following values:

Do What's Right.

Do Your Best.

Treat Others the Way They Want to be Treated.

Three Key Questions

There are three key questions we expect to be able to ask each other and have each answered in the affirmative.

Can I trust you?

Are you committed to excellence?

Do you care about me?



At Sport Clips we work hard, but we also play hard. Our Team Members enjoy fun competitions, contests and rewards, pep rallies and leaderships, and many experience our National Huddle each year.

Wayne McGlone Memorial Relief Fund

The Wayne McGlone Memorial Relief Fund was established in memory of Wayne McGlone, a much loved Sport Clips Area Developer who passed away unexpectedly in 2012, to support Sport Clips team members in need of financial assistance due to unforeseen emergencies and tragedies. Some of our first recipients were stylists who, along with their families, lost their homes to the Moore, Oklahoma tornado.

Help A Hero

Sport Clips Haircuts donated $650,000 to the Veterans of Foreign Wars to help active duty U.S. service members and veterans further their education and reach post-military career goals. Through client and product partner donations, as well as Veterans Day contributions of $1 per haircut service, the franchise’s annual “Help A Hero” campaign was its most successful since the program began in 2007. Funds raised will benefit the VFW’s “Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship” program which is expected to provide more than 145 scholarships for the 2015-2016 academic year.
