VFW-administered program awards record number of scholarships.

HOUSTON — Sport Clips Haircuts held an event at VFW Post 8790 today to offer free haircuts to veterans and present a check to the VFW Foundation for $1.5M toward veterans’ scholarships. This marks the sixth year in a row that Sport Clips has donated at least $1M to the Sport Clips VFW Help A Hero Scholarship program. Administered by the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) to provide scholarships for service members and veterans, the program has grown to become the largest of its kind. Through the program, VFW awarded 196 scholarships totaling $900,000 for the current 2023 spring semester today, bringing the total scholarships awarded to 2,600.

As the nation’s leading provider of men’s and boys’ haircare, veteran-founded Sport Clips began work with the VFW in 2013 to offer Help A Hero Scholarships to help military veterans prepare for civilian careers that often require additional college, graduate, and technical degrees and training. Since the creation of the program, Sport Clips has donated nearly $13 million to the “Help A Hero Scholarship” program.

“We owe our veterans and their families a debt of gratitude for their service. By helping ease the financial burden that often comes with reentering the civilian workforce, Sport Clips team members, clients, and product partners join us in saying ‘thank you’ to those who have served our country,” says Gordon Logan, Air Force veteran, VFW Life member, and founder and chairman of Sport Clips. “Over the past ten years, the Help A Hero program has become a real difference-maker in the lives of so many veterans who have benefited from these scholarships and who are now successfully engaged in their civilian careers.”

“The VFW is amazed at the generosity of Sport Clips clients, its team members and its partners,” said Dan West, VFW adjutant general. “It is their kindness and eagerness to support America’s veterans that makes this scholarship program possible. And it brings me great pride to announce that the spring 2023 semester will be our biggest awarded semester to date with $900,000 in scholarships being awarded to nearly 200 student veterans. We couldn’t have achieved this feat without Sport Clips and are excited to see the wide-reaching impact this has on the families of America’s best.”

More than $143,000 of the donation total this year came from Sport Clips franchisees, with nearly half of that coming directly from haircut proceeds on Veterans Day, while Sport Clips clients donated the most generous portion of money raised in stores and online. Sport Clips partners Direct Beauty Express, John Paul Mitchell Systems, Nioxin, Sexy Hair, Gibs Grooming, Actiiv, and American Crew also made substantial contributions.

The application period for fall 2023 Help A Hero Scholarships is open now through April 30 to receive up to $5,000 of assistance per semester, per family for service members and veterans in the rank of E-5 and below.

Media Advisory: Nation’s Largest Scholarship Program for Veterans Kicks off Five-Week Fundraising Drive

2022-10-14T10:00:38-04:00October 14th, 2022|Tags: , , , , |

Founder & Veteran Gordon Logan Says Sport Clips/VFW Scholarship Has Raised $11.4 Million for Thousands of Vets to Date.

GEORGETOWN, TexasSport Clips Haircuts, a national franchise with almost 1,900 locations, is kicking off its annual scholarship fundraising drive for veterans. The campaign will take place for the five weeks leading up to Saturday, November 12, 2022.

WHO: Sport Clips’ Founder and CEO Gordon B. Logan, an Air Force C-130 pilot who flew missions in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War, created the unique scholarship in conjunction with the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) for America’s veterans in need of financial support.

WHAT: Started in 2013, the “Help A Hero” scholarship initiative has grown to the largest of its kind and has raised $11.4 million to provide 2,400 scholarships to veterans in need from all branches of military service.  Last year, Logan and his Sport Clips team raised $1.55 million for the program, and this year’s goal is $1.7M.

With college tuition inflation up 8% and veterans’ education benefits stretched thin, the Help A Hero Scholarship gives veterans and their families some extra help to reach their educational goals.

WHEN: The kickoff takes place this week with a radio interview by Gordon Logan on the National Defense Radio Network (airing Oct. 15-16,) store rallies, and meetings with key stakeholders. (Mr. Logan is available for media interviews by request to inquiry@fedewaconsulting.com or 202.365.6936.)

WHERE: Participating Sport Clips stores across the U.S. will donate $2 from every hair care service provided on Veterans Day, November 11, to the program. Many participating Sport Clips locations will also offer free Veterans Day haircuts for those with military I.D. You can also donate by texting to “HERO” to 71777.

WHY: Mr. Logan’s personal story, from U.S. Air Force pilot to Wharton/MIT graduate, successful franchisor in all 50 states + Canada, and recognition of being “Entrepreneur of the Year” by the International Franchise Association (IFA) is most compelling. On top of it all, he believes in giving back to the men and women who serve in uniform through the “Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship” program.

Sport Clips Haircuts makes its MVP Experience better than ever with new proprietary scent

2022-07-13T10:43:13-04:00July 13th, 2022|Tags: , , , , |

Custom blend of organics freshens service that’s been a client-favorite for almost two decades.

GEORGETOWN, Texas — Sport Clips Haircuts’ client-favorite MVP Experience that includes a steamed towel, massaging shampoo, neck and shoulder treatment, and precision haircut is getting a fresh, new update with a custom-blended proprietary scent. Throughout the franchise’s almost 1,900 locations, America’s most relaxing haircut experience now includes organic ingredients chamomile, lavehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggNV8KAx820&feature=youtu.bender, and eucalyptus infused into a hot steamed towel that’s gently applied to the face after the shampoo and prior to the haircut.

“When our clients come in, we’ve found that even if they’re in a hurry, they want to feel relaxed while they’re getting a haircut,” says Edward Logan, Sport Clips CEO and president. “We introduced the MVP service in 2005, 12 years after we opened our first store in 1993. Through years of perfecting the processes in becoming the pros in men’s hair, we’ve found the addition of ‘scent’ enhances the client experience and allows the relaxation to begin soon after they walk in the door.”

Consumer research shows scent can have a significant impact on the client experience and like many hotel properties and high-end stores, the team at Sport Clips developed this proprietary formula with two things in mind – clients’ overall experience along with ease of use and application by professionally trained stylists.

What’s included in the updated MVP Experience:

  • Sport Clips worked with Zero Trace, a company dedicated to using plant-based products, to develop the all-natural, proprietary scent. It is a combination of chamomile as an ancient medicinal with a great scent; lavender, known to improve circulation; and eucalyptus, which has a rich history as a fragrance; formulated to enhance relaxation. For Sport Clips’ use, it has been packaged in a new type of stable delivery system that allows it to arrive at the stores ready for use.
  • The new scent was tested in more than 50 stores and announced to franchisees, store managers, and stylists system-wide in May 2022.
  • Extensive training around the updated scent and application process preceded this month’s introduction.

In a survey of clients who participated in the MVP test, 82 percent rated the MVP with new scent as better than the original MVP. Sport Clips is planning an extended roll out of the upgraded service with advertising and promotions planned over the next nine months. The new scent is also part of the Ultimate MVP service (formerly the Double MVP), which features double the hot steamed towel and neck and shoulder treatment. More information is available by visiting SportClipsHaircuts.com.

Donations can be made now through November 13 at any Sport Clips location or by texting “HERO” to 71777.

This year, we’ve increased our pledge to the program by doubling our donation to $2 for every haircare service provided in our stores nationwide on Veterans Day.”

Help A Hero scholarships range up to $5,000 per semester and help cover the cost of tuition and fees for military with the rank of E-5 and below.

Sport Clips Haircuts to hold National Signing Days July 26 and 27 to fill growing franchise’s openings for professional stylists

2021-07-20T10:00:09-04:00July 20th, 2021|Tags: , , , , |

GEORGETOWN, TexasSport Clips Haircuts, the leading franchise dedicated to men’s and boys’ haircare, is growing and so is its need for professional stylists. Coming up July 26 and 27, all 1,850 locations will host National Signing Days with:

–  Guaranteed interviews
–  Instant job offers for qualified candidates
–  Chance to win one of 25 BaBylissPRO FX Combo styling tools

“Sport Clips locations are looking to hire the best stylists and barbers who want to be a part of building something exciting and joining a team that feels the same way,” says Edward Logan, Sport Clips Haircuts president and CEO. “Sport Clips came through 2020 in great shape and is investing heavily in the future with continued store openings and technology that helps clients and stylists. Most importantly, stylist earning potential is higher than ever, with tips at an all-time high. Our local franchisees are excited to meet you and we hope you come in and join us for this event.”

Some compelling stats for stylists eager to put their talent and training to work for a company with the visibility and foot traffic Sport Clips has to offer came from a recent study the brand conducted with OnePoll that indicates:

–  A higher percentage of men are willing to try new haircuts so there’s ample opportunity to put their creativity to good use, especially since 47 percent of the men surveyed say they “don’t know what hairstyles look good on them.”

–  After 74 percent of respondents said they cut their hair at home or did not cut their hair during the pandemic, the timing is ripe with clients returning to get back-to-school, travel, wedding, and back-to-the-office haircuts.

“What’s great for stylists is that the majority of Sport Clips locations are locally owned, so they can work for a nationally recognized brand with local store owners and team members,” says Julie Vargas, a licensed stylist, and Sport Clips vice president of career opportunities. “Plus, choosing to work for Sport Clips gives stylists the opportunity to wear comfortable, sports attire; work on custom anti-fatigue flooring; and experience on-going training and career advancement options.” Both Glassdoor and Comparably have ranked Sport Clips as a top place to work.

Register here for Sport Clips National Signing Days and confirm your spot for an in-store interview on Monday, July 26 from noon to 3:00 p.m. local time or Tuesday, July 27 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. local time.

Even through a pandemic, Sport Clips Haircuts raised more than $1M to support VFW Help A Hero Scholarships

2021-01-25T14:46:32-05:00January 25th, 2021|Tags: , , , , |

Check presented today for $1,026,105 will help hundreds of veterans.

GEORGETOWN, Texas. — Today, Sport Clips Haircuts presented a $1,026,105 donation check to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Foundation (VFW) to provide scholarships for service members and veterans. Even in a pandemic, veterans are returning from active military duty to prepare for civilian careers that often require additional college, graduate, and technical degrees and training. To ease the financial burden of going back to school, Sport Clips and the VFW have teamed up for the past seven years to provide assistance through the Help A Hero Scholarship program.

“Supporting our nation’s military remains a priority for our veteran-founded business. We are honored to make this donation to the Help A Hero program for those who have given so much through their service,” said Gordon Logan, Air Force veteran, VFW Life member and founder and chairman of Sport Clips. “We’re grateful to our franchisees, team members, clients, and product partners who faithfully support these essential scholarships.”

“The pandemic’s impact has been far-reaching, especially for our military and veteran families, and this campaign helps to ensure we continue to provide as many student veterans with scholarships as possible,” said Hal Roesch II, VFW national commander. “I’m proud to announce that we have awarded another 160 student veterans with scholarships totaling nearly $700,000 for the spring 2021 semester. To date, more than 1,900 military and student veterans have benefitted from the Help A Hero Scholarship program through $8.7 million donated previously by Sport Clips Haircuts and its generous clients and product partners.”

More than $60,000 of the money was raised this year was from Sport Clips’ own $1 per haircare service donation made on Veterans Day while clients, individual supporters, and Sport Clips team members donated the largest portion of the money raised in stores and through virtual walks. Sport Clips partners Direct Beauty Express, John Paul Mitchell Systems, Nioxin, Sexy Hair, Gibs Grooming, ACTiiV, and Darlington Raceway also made substantial contributions.

Help A Hero Scholarship applications are open now through April 30 for the fall 2021 semester to receive up to $5,000 of assistance per semester, per family for service members and veterans in the rank of E-5 and below.

Campaign supports military scholarships through the VFW

GEORGETOWN, Texas — Getting a haircut now through Veterans Day will support service member and veteran scholarships as a part of Sport Clips Haircuts annual “Help A Hero” campaign that kicks off in stores today. The Help A Hero Scholarship program is designed to reduce the burden of college, graduate and technical school tuition often needed to pursue post-military careers and is administered by the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S. (VFW). The goal this year is to raise $1.5 million toward scholarships in the more than 1,800 Sport Clips Haircuts stores across the country.

In just six years, 1,450 military and student veterans have been awarded Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarships with the nearly $6.5 million donated to date by Sport Clips Haircuts, its clients and product partners. These scholarships provide up to $5,000 of assistance per semester to help cover the cost of tuition and fees for service members and veterans in the rank of E-5 and below.

“I used my G.I. Bill benefits to obtain my B.A. and even the first three semesters of my M.A. before exhausting my benefits,” says Christopher Mynatt, a U.S. Navy veteran. “The VFW and Sport Clips are the reason I will never have to pay for school out of pocket.”

“These scholarships are making a difference in the lives of so many who have served our country in the military. Right now, there are 165 student veterans attending colleges and certification programs here in the U.S. with the aid of Help A Hero Scholarships,” says Gordon Logan, Sport Clips founder, CEO, Air Force veteran and VFW Life member. “Whether it’s graduate school or beauty school, it’s an honor for us to be able to thank those who serve by helping them toward the degrees and certifications to pursue civilian careers.”

“Our student veterans can face a lot of adversity while pursuing higher education,” said William “Doc” Schmitz, VFW national commander. “With the help of Sport Clips Haircuts and its generous patrons, we’re so pleased to have the opportunity to ensure the financial burden is alleviated during an already stressful time in these veterans’ lives.”

Many locations are also offering free haircuts to service members and veterans with valid military identification – check here for participating stores and store hours. Anyone can support the cause by making a donation when checking out at a Sport Clips location. On Veterans Day, November 11, the company donates an additional dollar for every haircare service to the scholarship program, which added more than $100,000 to the total last year and will be even higher in 2019.
