Want to Open a Barber Shop?
Although it may seem overwhelming at first to open your very own business, if you take it all in steps rather than let the whole process consume you, then it will be far less stressful.
In order to have a barber shop, you must first make sure that you have the proper licensing and permits from both the state and county/city level. You likely already have your state license, but it’s always a good idea to ask the licensing board if there are any other kinds of state licensing you may need in order to open up shop. You will be in need of an inspection of your shop to ensure you are in compliance with the law and will then be eligible to receive a shop license through the Board of Cosmetology.
Your next step will be contacting the county and city to see what they require of you before you can open your doors. Once you have all the licensing figured out, you should have the green light to open your new business!
How to Name Your Business
Establishing a Barber Shop Name
Now with all of this licensing, and to make your business an official legal entity, you will need think about your new barber shop's name. It will likely need to be registered with any agency who issues your licenses and be registered with the state’s Division of Corporations.
A good name is not just about making it official, though. You need to keep in mind all of the big-name competition chain shops and franchises there are out there. Those guys are hard to beat! Having a good name can really make all the difference, so let’s explore a few tips for choosing barber shop names:
- Type of business: Since you are a barber shop, you’re going to want a name that clearly says it! Whether you include “barber” or “haircuts for men,” you want to find a way to make it clear just who you are servicing.
- Services: If your services go beyond haircuts, it’s also a good idea to make this clear. “Full-Service Barber” can say it all!
- Puns: Puns are fun and memorable, which are definitely good qualities to have in a business name!
- Your name: Since you are a single location (for now anyway), naming the shop after you, the owner, is a good idea because many people like the feel of a small business. Show some pride!
- Manly: Barber shops are a place for men, period. So, feel free to make the name sound as manly as possible, whether you incorporate sports, barber tools, or whatever else have you. Looking for a more gender-neutral option? Check out: 60 Beauty & Hair Salon Names.
