Urban Exposure: Get the MVP Treatment with Sport Clips Haircuts

 Sport Clips Hair cutting station

Hey London, there’s a new team in town but it’s not your average baseball, basketball or hockey team. It’s the Sport Clips team and they’ll change the way you view your hair cutting experience!

This sports-themed hair cutting franchise opened its first London location at the London North Smart Centre (1985 Hyde Park Road) on September 28, 2013 and City Mom got a front row seat.  Sport Clips specializes in haircuts for men and boys so when we were invited to come in for a visit, I knew there was no one better to try the experience than my two sports-loving nephews. Note that they also provide women and girl cuts too.

Sport Clips Before & After


The Sport Clips experience starts the moment you open the door; a large screen TV playing the main event, stadium-style seating and complimentary refreshments make you feel like you’re at the big game.

After your precision haircut is done by your guy-smart stylist, the true MVP treatment begins and it’s time to hit the showers. The “showers” are in a separate room with special lighting and heated massaging chairs that together, help to enhance relaxation. This is where you receive your massaging shampoo and hot steamed towel treatment.  My nephews, having just come from playing hockey all day, looked absolutely relaxed!

Next it’s back to the hair cutting station for a blow dry, neck and shoulder massage and then the game is over and you come out a true MVP!

Sport Clips Haircuts is about more than just the hair cutting experience. Peter Kowal, President and COO of Sport Clips Canada shares that Sport Clips will work closely with the London community organizations, teams and schools to help support local events and sports.

We want to contribute to the community we do business in and support the people who support us. Whether it’s prizes for sports team members, a contribution to a fundraiser or just bringing our tent and mascot to local events, we want to be a part of the action and fun in London. – Peter Kowal

You have to love a franchise company that is genuinely interested in enhancing the community in which it does business and that owners of the London location, Jean and Drew Coles are excited to be here too. And don’t worry if you’re not in the Richmond Hill area, because Jean and Drew plan to open more locations throughout London.


There are other great perks with the Sport Clips experience like haircuts without an appointment, stylists who specialize in male hair care and who stay up-to-date on industry trends, sports programming at each haircut station, option to visit in-between haircuts for a complimentary neck trim, and beard trim and detailing. As an added bonus, first time clients get upgraded to the MVP Experience free!

Though it was obvious during our visit that my nephews loved every minute of their MVP Experience, I asked them what they thought and they both said “it was good” which translated from kid-speak means ‘amazing’.

When I asked them if they’d like to come back they said “for sure” and when I asked if they’d recommend Sport Clips to their friends they shared that they definitely would. Their mom also shared that they would now be ongoing Sport Clips clients. I take this feedback to indicate that the Sport Clips MVP Experience is a grand slam for the whole family!
