Powerful names can greatly impact your business perception in customers’ minds. Here I will help you come up with a catchy business name to attract customers to build your business in three easy steps.
Come let’s get busy naming your salon, nail manicure bar, mens barbershop or skin care spa …
Before you can come up with a catchy business name you need to get clear on your branding position. What types of salon services are you offering? Who are your target customers? What makes your salon special and different?
A strong branding position will attract good customers to your establishment. And will make your marketing planning much easier because you will know what your unique benefits are. Come along as we develop your salon brand in two easy steps.
Your Salon Difference vs Competitors
What “position” do you want to claim a stake in your customer’s minds as opposed to your competitors?
Is your salon MORE expert in hair color, trendier, cozier, more pampering, or has macho vibe?
How You Want Customers to Identify Your Salon
What qualities do you want your customers to be reminded of when your salon comes to mind? Are you the best salon for keeping up with fashions in new hairstyles, or to help middle-aged women with hair loss and makeup techniques for aging skin, or a fun place for kids to get hair cuts?
Example of Salon Branding Position:
A metropolitan hair salon located in the fashionable city center specializing in high-end salon services from innovative hair cuts to trending hair colors. In addition to services, they sell top quality hair products and tools available exclusively at their salon locations.
Please take a moment to think through these important questions and answer them by drafting your unique branding position as shown in the example above.
Trust me having this statement will greatly assist you in the next step to naming your salon business and brainstorming catchy names.
Armed with your branding position statement (discussed above) you are now ready to come up with a list of good name ideas using my pro brainstorming techniques below. Use some or all of the methods and create a long list of possible name ideas for your business.
To create your most unique salon name, brainstorming is the first order of business. The best place to start is inside your ideal client’s mind. Who are your target customers for your salon’s services? Are they millennials, teenagers, children and families, college students, young professionals, stylish middle-aged women, or men.
Once you have your perfect customer in mind, figuratively step into their shoes. This is important because you want to evaluate your name options through the lens of their outlook for the best results. Don’t fall into the trap of naive business owners who judge their salon names using their own taste. You want to appeal to your customers, not to yourself
Begin your brainstorming with listing words about your services such as cut, style, blow-dry, perm, color, etc. Include adjectives that you want to use to describe your beauty approach glamorous, chic, natural, etc.
Play around with rhyming names or with words that all have the same starting letters such as cut-color-comb or style-shine-soft or nails-nibs-nice. These types of phrases are unique and easy to remember.
Then continue to the next step where we will review each of these naming ideas against the checklist below to determine which is the very best name for your new salon business.

Review Business Name Lists
Read lists of business name ideas such as these below from my blog to get inspiration for your best company name:
Combine Two Words for One Business Name
Blend personal names of two or more owners into an interesting compound business name. Learn the many ways to combine names for your business name in my article here.
Name Your Company With Your Personal Name
Some business owners elect to use their own personal name as their salon name. Generally, I do not recommend naming your business after yourself – except in a few instances – read more in my article about naming a business after yourself here
FYI: Avoid using business owner initials as a business name. Some new entrepreneurs decide to use their initials as their company name. This is not a good idea, because names such as The LMI salon (Linda, Mary and Irene) is boring, easy to forget, hard to spell and pronounce.

Use Acronyms to Come Up Company Name
An acronym is different from a name made up of owner initials because it creates a new word.
Some examples; IBM is an initial name (for International Business Machines) which is spoken as each letter separately – I -B- M.
An example acronym name is LEGO (short for Leg Godt – danish for “play well”) and is pronounced as one word.
Use this online tool to brainstorm some creative acronym business names.
Experiment with Wordplay and Funny Puns
Puns are jokes that exploit the different possible meanings of words – a play on words. They can make funny and catchy business names.
Some examples of salon name puns; Clip Art, Hair Play, Hair Pollution, and My Hair Lady!

To name your salon start by brainstorming to create a list of keywords related to beauty, hair, skin, and makeup. These are the words that you will enter into the business name generator.
Remember garbage in – garbage out. This means that the better, more focused, and creative, your keywords are the better – and more interesting – your name idea results will be.
An easy way to brainstorm keywords is to use Google. Put in your business type ( hair salon, nail art, manicures, men haircuts, etc) plus “keywords”. Example – “beauty salon + keywords”. Scroll through keyword pages such as this one and pick up related words.
I found these salon-related keywords = spa, facial, haircut, extensions, hair color, trims, prices, salon service.
Also try using a thesaurus for your primary service word (hair) for synonyms (words that mean the same thing) I found styling, barber, hairdressing, beauty parlor, mane, strands, coiffure, fringe, tress, and mop.
Another source of creative keywords is a glossary of salon terms like this one. Here I discovered even more good keywords to input into the salon name generator including; roots, bangs, braid, French, gloss, rinse, and fluff.
Generate Salon Names
Experiment by entering various keywords – single and multiple variations – into the Salon name generator tool to generate creative name ideas.
Check out the ones I created by using my keyword list I created using the prior steps.

Now let’s take those names you generated and customize them for your perfect Salon name by adding your personal name (Nicki, Pierre), nickname (Hottie, Buddy) or town name/region (LA, Chicago, South).
Create a shortlist of ones you like. The next step is where we will pick your final name.
The final step in naming your salon is to ask your customers, employees, friends, and family to give their opinions about your name ideas.
Have a list of 3-4 choices and ask them which they like best and why. Try not to influence them so you get their true opinion. Ask them for any name ideas they can think of. Some of the best names have come about just this way.
Congratulations on creating your new business name! Now let’s protect it from your competitors. Register your business name by trademarking it, if you like.
Check to see if your intended name is available as an internet domain name for your website.
Use a domain search tool because if your exact name is not available, it will offer many suggested names that are not taken.
