Look no further. This article is chock full of ideas! You can expand on these, or put your own stamp on them by incorporating your name or some other personal bit of information.

The most important thing is to have fun, keep it in line with your style and target market, and own it!

Now, onto the ideas.

Note: Most of these would sound better with "Hair" or "Salon" added to the end of them.

Historic or Vintage Salons

Whether your salon has a medieval theme or not, an old-time name can be fun and catchy.

Music and Entertainment-Related Salon Names

Hair salons have an unusual relationship with the entertainment industry. They really go hand-in-hand. Hollywood and musicians heavily influence hairstyles, so naming your hair salon after the industry that sustains you can be a fun homage.

Movie-Themed Salon Names

How about some names that pay tribute to your favorite movie?

  • Barbarella Salon
  • Director's Cut
  • Hair and Back Again
  • My Hair Lady
  • Little Shop of Hairdos

  • Hair 'n the Hood
  • Hair Rap II
  • Rap Unzels

  • Hairbreak Hotel
  • In the Hair Tonight
  • Life Is a Hairway
  • Love My 'Do
  • Whole Lotta Styling Goin' On

Make your name stand out so potential clients know you can handle any crazy hair request.

Counterculture and Rock Music Salon Names

Some salons cater to the counterculture crowd. Goths, rockers, and punks go for experimental hairstyles and colors, and they want a stylist that understands their way of life. Why not name your salon something they'll think is funny, and make them feel right at home.

  • Amnesia
  • Antidote
  • Bad Apple Salon
  • Banger’s and Slash
  • New Wave Hair Salon
  • Scissors ’n' Razors

  • Crowned With Glory
  • Hair Mary
  • Hollywood Be Thy Mane
  • Nearer My Shears to Thee

Salon Names Based on Services Provided

Sometimes having your business name say, or insinuate, your specialty, it will draw more clients. You just better live up to your name!

Creative Barbershop Names

Barbershops can be a little cheesy. They have the red and white stripes out front, maybe a sign with a kid in a newsboy hat, or a brush and razor. They can also be high-end and swanky. Either way, here are a few names to consider.

  • A Little Help From Your Barber
  • A Little off the Top
  • Ace of Fades
  • Chop Shop
  • Fro-ternity
  • Hair Don’t Fade
  • Hair Force
  • Jack the Clipper
  • Off With His Hair!
  • That Was a Close Shave!
  • That's Cut!
  • The Razor’s Edge
  • What’s the Buzz?

Elegant Beauty Parlor Names

Ladies love a traditional beauty parlor, and what better way to say elegance and class than with a beautiful name for your business? Your clients will love telling their friends where they get their hair done (or "set" as some still say.) That doesn't mean your beauty parlor can have a fun or silly name. Also, throwing in some French words always counts for bonus points.

  • A Touch of Class
  • Belle Curls
  • Mia Bella
  • Pretty Parlor
  • Serenity Salon
  • Tres Beaux
  • Under the Dryer

It's harder to get a great colorist than you think.

Names for Salons Specializing in Hair Coloring

Most hair stylists color clients hair. But some salon's and stylists are especially amazing at hair coloring. For those salon's catering to people that want crazy fun hair colors, or beautifully perfect highlights, here are some names for you.

  • Color Chic
  • Color Me Awesome
  • ColorBox
  • Live and Let Dye
  • Live to Dye
  • The Color Palette
  • The Dyeing Question
  • Time to Dye
  • To Dye For

Children's Salon Names

If your business caters specifically to children, you want the name to make them excited to get their hair cut. After all, it freaks most kids out until they're used to it. Decorate your salon with toys and get those super cool hair cutting chairs that look like an airplane or a princess carriage. Then give the kid a lollipop and let them watch a movie. Works every time, well most of the time.

Cubby Cuts
Goldi-Locks
Li’l Monkey Makeovers
Cut and Play
Hair Castle
Little Monkeys
Cute Cuts
Hair Zoo
Mama Bear’s Hair
Empress Hair
Knock, Knock, Who’s Hair
Pigtails and Crewcuts
