Let’s face it, getting your hair cut it kind of a chore! At Sport Clips, located at 3614 Forbes Avenue in Oakland, they’ve turned something that you have to do into something you want to do. Owner, A.J. Rodriquez, opened Oakland’s Sport Clips in February 2015 and is fixated on giving his clientele – not just an ordinary haircut – but a fantastic experience. “We love our client mix in Oakland. We get everyone from business professionals, to healthcare workers, to students looking for a good haircut before their weekend,” said A.J. “It’s so rewarding having opened a store in Oakland giving opportunities to our team members closer to the city, as well as serving the clients in the Oakland market…. I love providing great value to our customers and being a part of the community,” continued A.J.
One may not know the difference between a fade, a pompadour, a cropped fringe or faux mohawk, but Sport Clips’ ‘guy-smart stylists’ sure do! Sport Clips is known for their Signature MVP Haircut Experience where clients receive a precision haircut and a hot steamed towel on their face – all while receiving a scalp, neck and shoulder massage. “We have all the products the pro’s use, so make sure to stop in for a holiday gift!” said A.J. “And all UPMC and University of Pittsburgh employees get $2 off any service!”
Oakland’s Sport Clips is currently the first and only store in an urban area of Pittsburgh. “We decided to go to Oakland because of the consistent development and improvement of the area, and felt our services were needed in the market,” said A.J. Oakland’s location has eight talented team members led by store manager, Andrea.
Make ‘going to Sport Clips in Oakland’ your New Year’s resolution – especially in the spring! “We are looking forward to our St. Baldrick’s event in March around Saint Patrick’s Day where we raise money and awareness for Childhood Cancer by hosting a head-shaving event!” said A.J.
