Register Your Name

Once you've decided upon a hair salon name, you'll need to reserve availability and register or license the name with your city's Board of Licenses. There are several fees involved with establishing a business, so be sure to contact the city in which you plan on conducting business prior to registering so that you're prepared for both the process and costs.

Design Your Logo

After you name has been officially registered, you can begin designing a hair salon logo that will be used on all forms of signage and advertisement. If you're creative you can design a logo yourself either freehand or with a computer design program. Otherwise, you may want to enlist the service of a professional graphic designer to ensure your logo and name work together harmoniously.

Tips and Advice

Choosing a hair salon business name is an extensive process and should be considered with much care. While results are certain to vary, the following tips have all been proven to help establish the popularity and capital success of a hair salon:

  • Name your salon with one of the beginning letters of the alphabet so that it appears first in the phonebook, making it all the more likely that you'll receive potential customer calls first.
  • Include the words hair or beauty in your name to ensure that potential drive-by customers know what type of business you are.
  • Keep it simple and refrain from wordy names; simple one syllable titles often work best and are the easiest to remember.
