Opening Your Own Hair Salon
How do you make the most out of your beautician license? By matching it with a business license and opening your own salon.
If you are in the process of opening a hair salon, you’ll want to have an appealing name to go with it.
Let’s face it, there are hair salons all over the place, and competition is tough. Having a great name might just be the deciding factor for a customer to go to your salon.
When brainstorming hair salon names, consider the following tips to help you along:
How to Name a Business
Brainstorming Names for Your Hair Salon
- Consider your audience: Are you aiming to be that hip salon all the youngsters are talking about, or that salon that all the sweet, little, old ladies go to for their monthly perms? Or perhaps you are aiming for something right in between. Whatever the case, keep your audience in mind when choosing your name.
- Use hair-related verbs: What do you do to hair? A few words that come to mind are color, dye, cut, trim, style, blow dry, perm, and curl. Using a verb in your hair salon name will emphasize what you do.
- Use rhymes: We all know that rhymes are very catchy, and using one in your hair salon name can help a customer or passerby remember the name for future business.
- Use common sense: Common sense goes a long way when naming a business. You want your business to stand out, and if your hair salon name sounds similar to another, it could cost you business!
- Use your specialty: Is there an aspect of hair that you are really good at? Let the world know by including a reference to your specialty in your business name!
- Use your name: This is your business and everyone should know it. Maybe you're one of the lucky ones and have a name that is easy to play on or rhyme with. Just try it and see!
Remember to be as creative as possible with the name because you want current and potential customers to remember it and not get it confused with a competitor!

Still Can't Decide on a Name?
As you can see, you can come up with an abundance of good names for your salon.
Perhaps you are still having a hard time thinking of a good name, or maybe you are stuck between a few different ones. If this sounds familiar, try the following ideas:
- Have a naming party. Invite some friends and family over for food and refreshments, and maybe even a trim on the house, and have them help you brainstorm potential names for your hair salon. People are full of ideas so it never hurts to get their opinion.
- Survey your audience. Create a survey on a website such assurveymonkey.com, post a question to Yahoo! Answers, or use social networking to poll the public to help you to find out what appeals most to the general public.
- Design a logo. If you are a visual thinker and have a design in mind, try putting that design on paper with potential names to see what looks best. This is your brand, so make it awesome.
- Flip a coin. Stuck between two names? Flip a coin on it!
Still can’t think of an appropriate name? No problem. Have a snack, slap some color on your head, and read some hair magazines for more inspiration. Relaxation is key. Sleep on it if you need to, it might even come to you in your dreams!

hannah on April 03, 2018:
here is an idea...
try and find the meaning to your name for example, Hannah in Hebrew is grace... this way you can name your salon in a creative but personal way.. E.g 'Graceful beauty' or 'Beauty with grace' etc etc
just an idea! hope it helps.
