Leader in hair care for men and boys opened first location in
LONDON, ON, Feb. 27, 2014 /CNW/ - Men and boys in Canada are starting to
look much better thanks to Sport Clips Haircuts, a modern-day barbershop concept and leader in hair care for guys.
Celebrating it's one-year anniversary of the first Canadian store
located in Burlington, ON, Sport Clips Upper Appleby will be holding

includes a precision haircut, massaging shampoo, hot steamed towel
treatment, and a neck and shoulder massage - all in 20-25 minutes. "Our
concept gives men and boys what they want and need, which is a quick
quality haircut and some relaxation, all while watching the top sport
games and highlights on big screen TVs throughout our Store" states
Robyn Wilson, Co-Owner of Sport Clips Upper Appleby.
