Review: Sports Clips, Inc. haircuts for men, at Town Center by Wal Mart

Sports Clips, Inc. is a new chain business in Durango that provides haircuts specifically for men. My first haircut there was good enough to where I’d recommend that other men go there, as well.

Sport Clips, Inc is now my favorite place for a haircut in Durango.

They’re not exactly a barber shop, but the lady who cut my hair had gone to school for cosmetology, which was just as helpful. At their new store I wasn’t wanting a shave from a straight razor, anyhow, just a tapered hair cut.

What I got was their New Client Adult MVP haircut.

My stylist was very articulate in asking for my preferences in length, whether to use a buzzer or scissors, and whether the length felt right to me when running my fingers through it. Good communication!

She probably spent ten minutes cutting my hair to perfection.

Afterwards, the MVP treatment meant that she brings me into this back room where there’s four reclined chairs with articulating foot rests. I sit back in my chair where my neck lies into this custom cradle with a towel in it, while my head hangs into the wash sink.

The chair vibrates.

She put a warm wet towel around my face, leaving a hole for me to breath through, and delicately massaged my head and face.

Then she washed my hair, and gave me a towel to dry off with.

Taking me back in the hair-styling room, she applied this tea tree oil moisturizer to my hair, which felt and smelt fantastic.

All of this happened in about twenty minutes, and I was thoroughly satisfied with my haircut.

Inconsistent pricing?

At the register, a lady handed me a receipt for my free MVP haircut experience as a new client. It showed that my free experience was discounted $18 dollars.

In contrast with this receipt showing a New Client MVP haircut to be $18 dollars was the information I got from a lady at the store during a follow-up phone call to ask about their rates for haircuts. She explained that a Varsity Cut, which just includes the cut, is $18 dollars for returning clients, while a MVP haircut with a hair wash in a vibrating chair to be $23 dollars.

The reason for the pricing discrepancy? I’ll let my readers decide that.

Despite the pricing discrepancy, I’d still go back to Sport Clips for a haircut when I’m wanting a fast, well-done haircut that makes me look and feel comfortable.
