Though one seldom sees the spinning red-and-white pole out front any more, barbershops still thrive in America?Sport Clips owns and operates more than 1,000 hair cutteries that cater specifically to men and boys. Inside each location, stylists buzz clippers, massage shoulders and scalps, and wrap faces in hot towels. They happily keep up friendly conversation, but also cater to customers who'd prefer to quietly watch a game on one of their flatscreen TVs.
In addition to maintaining a man-friendly atmosphere, each stylist can perform Sport Clips' signature service, the MVP Experience. They kick off the dude-pampering with a scalp massage that incorporates a Tea Tree shampoo treatment. Then, they wrap their client's face in a hot, steamed towel?a relaxing sensation that's good for the skin. They couple the towel wrap with a quick neck and shoulder massage, completing the whole service in about 20 minutes, giving guys plenty of time to return to chopping logs with their bare hands.
