Sport Clips is not only the first sports-themed hair salon franchise formed, but it is the only one listed in the Entrepreneur Magazine’s annual “Franchise 500” ranking.
Designed to target a previously underserved market in a multi billion dollar industry, Sport Clips caters to men and boys by providing hassle-free hairstyling in a unique, 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.
Sport Clips + St. Baldrick's
Sport Clips has been a St. Baldrick’s supporter for many years and has generously committed to donating $1 million over the next three years.
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 $1.4 million 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 has provided more than 943 scholarships.
I have been working at Sport Clips full-time (More than 5 years)
Good pay,love the culture.
Only con is I’m there alotttt. I love my career but I love family time too sometimes they are hard to balance.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sport Clips (Savannah, GA) in July 2015.
I applied online and received a call about the position roughly an hour after I submitted the application. I spoke with one of the higher ups in their operations department about the general duties of the job, what I could expect, what territories I would be in charge of, and how much time I could expect to spend traveling from various locations. Because the position I was applying for was a new position, they didn't really have a lot of guidelines for what they expected of me. A lot of it was things like "developing relationships between Sports Clips locations and local businesses" and "creating joint marketing campaigns with other Sports Clips locations and local businesses". At the end of the call I was told that my application would be sent on to the next level of the interview process, but I never heard from anyone from the company again.
