“I’m not only the Hair Club president, I’m also a client” (Hair Club for Men)
Who can forget Sy Sperling's tv commercials confessing: "I'm not only the Hair Club president, I'm also a client!"

http://www.hairclub.com/companyinfomens.htm
Before
For much of its 30-year existence, Hair Club was known as Hair Club for Men, a company made famous by founder Sy Sperling's trademark phrase, "I'm not just the president, I'm also a client." Over that time, the company helped thousands of men get their hair back with our Bio-Matrix Strand by Strand technology.

After
Times have changed. Today, Hair Club is not your father's Hair Club. We still help thousands of men get their hair back each year, but we also help thousands of women and children. Hair Club offers these clients a portfolio of all proven hair loss solutions, including non-surgical hair replacement, follicular unit hair transplants, hair therapy programs and premium hair care products, at 90 locations in North America.

Follicle fracas: Hair clubs tangle in trademark suit
Chris Carroll

Houston hairdresser Ernie Menchaca is not just the president of the Hair Club for Women, now he's also a defendant.

New York-based Hair Club for Men Ltd. has filed suit in Houston federal court against Menchaca and his hair replacement center and salon called the Hair Club for Women.

The New York company, founded by president Sy Sperling, provides hair replacement alternatives for balding men in markets throughout the country and elsewhere.
