Salon Names Based on Services Provided
Sometimes having your business name say (or insinuate) your specialty will draw more clients. You just better live up to your name!
Elegant Beauty Salon 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't 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
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
- 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?
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
- The Godbarber
Hip Hop-Inspired Salon Names
Want to rap up your hair salon name? Got a hip salon on your hands that requires an equally hip name? Here are some happening hairdressing business names to match your funky, modern style.
- By the Blade
- Crisp Edge
- Flo Cutters
- Hair 'n the Hood
- Hair Rap II
- Rap Unzels
- Ready to Dye
- Snip Dogg
- The Scissor's Edge
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.
- Bad Apple Salon
- Bangers and Slash
- New Wave Hair Salon
- Scissors ’n' Razors
- The Shag
- Valhalla Salon
- Wicked Salon
Lyrics or Song Title Pun Salon Names
Song titles and lyrics pop into people's heads all the time. So naming your hairstyling business with musical puns will ensure your customers don't forget your name.
- Comb Together
- Hair She Goes
- Hairbreak Hotel
- In the Hair Tonight
- Life Is a Hairway
- Love My 'Do
- Whole Lotta Styling Goin' On
- Hairway to Heaven
More Music-Related Salon Names

Gotta Get Ya Into My Chair
Hair State of Mind
My Beautiful 'Do
Hair Chemicals React
Hair, Here, and Everywhere
Shut Up and Style Me
It's a Hair Circus

Names for Salons Specializing in Hair Coloring
Most hairstylists color clients' hair. But some salons and stylists are especially amazing at hair coloring. For those salons catering to people that want crazy fun hair colors or beautifully perfect highlights, here are some names for you.
- Color Chic
- Color Me Awesome
- 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.
Li'l Monkey Makeovers
Cut and Play
Mama Bear's Hair
Knock, Knock, Who's Hair
Pigtails and Crewcuts
Super Hero Hair
Great Salon Names for Braids and Weaves
If your salon specializes in braids, weaves, or natural hair, here is a great list of fun names that your clients will love.
- Curl Me Crazy
- Diva Style
- Family HairLoom
- Gorgeous Braids and Weaves
- I’m a Natural Beauty
- Intertwine Hair Design
- Naturally Divine Beauty
- The Braidy Bunch
- The Long and Winding Extension
- Wavy Wonders Hair Salon
Catchy Salon Names That Will Boost Your Business
Just like commercial jingles, business names need to get stuck in people's heads. That way, when they're trying to find a new salon, the catchy name pops into their head. So of the best ways to help clients remember your name are the use of puns and alliteration.
