Comings & Goings: Sport Clips

By Sophie Silverstone

– By Rachel Robertson

Entrepreneurs and longtime Utahns Shere and Dylan Brunjes recently opened the doors of a Sport Clips shop in Sugar House. Shere says the Sport Clips mantra is “do what’s right, do your best and treat others they want to be treated,” starting with the “MVP signature exper­ience” for every client—a massaging shampoo and a relaxing tea tree hot towel wrap. Who wouldn’t want that? The Texas-based franchise with numerous Utah locations also believes in community service. To that end, Shere and Dylan are hosting a head-shaving fundraiser in partnership with the St. Baldrick’s, a foundation devoted to childhood cancer research. “Shavees” sign up on the website, collect money from friends and family in support of their daring effort, and on April 15, show up to “brave the shave”—10:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. and 3:30-4:30 p.m. in the Sport Clips store. The brand has pledged to raise $1 million for St. Baldrick’s.
