Punny Beauty Salon Names


picture of beautification

A few weeks ago, I mentioned our seeing a beauty salon with a funny name while driving through rural North Carolina and asked for other humorous names people had seen for places of beautification. Here's the list in the order in which I received them (minus a few that I would not post):

Million Hair

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

A reader named Anita has a salon yet to be named. Her punny sister thinks it would be just hysterical to call it "Anita Haircut" (I-need-a haircut) Her husband had a different take on it - "Anita Style."

Mane Attraction

Shear Pleasure

Head Hunters

Head Quarters (do they charge only 25 cents?!)

Here's an idea for the name of a hair salon that shares rental space with a dog groomer - Beauty and the Beast

Tangles Salon

3 Designing Women

Curl Up and Dye (in Edmonton, AB, and several other places)

Rock Star Hair - Hmm, I would be hesitant about that one!

The Mane Event

Hairs R US

Hot Headz

Helmet Hairworks

Samson's Locks

Mountain Do's

90% Salon and Spa

Scissor Wizard

Mop Shop Hair Salon

Bombshell Salon

Nogginz

Scissor Happy (might leave with no hair left!?)

If you'd like to add other salon names through the comments, just look for the comment link at the end of this blog post.

some personal updates...

The taxes are done and ready to mail today. Phew! That's one dreaded chore I don't have to feel bad about putting off for another 362 days or so....

My wife and I are finally entering this century technologically - we've ordered a laptop with XP! With a grandson 700 miles away, we've asked his mom to send pictures as often as possible. Our old hand-me-up desktop computer with Windows 98SE and a dial-up modem from our son Mark has been great, but we've been sensing the need for something faster. Now we need to decide soon what to do about faster internet - BellSouth DSL, a Verizon wireless internet card, satellite, other? The only option for cable here is Charter, and we've heard enough friends complain about their customer (dis)service that we'll not opt for that. Any words of wisdom, particularly from but not limited to any of you in the Greenville area?

Our grandson Drew went to see his pediatrician yesterday. He has grown 1.5 inches in length, but the doctor is concerned that he's not gaining as much as he should. He's up to 4 lbs. 15 oz - almost a 5-pound bag of sugar now! 8-) But in the past two weeks he's gained only 7 oz. He should be gaining that amount in one week's time at this stage of his development. (Apparently he's going to be tall and thin like his maternal grandfather.... Actually, the man in question is short and dumpy.)

The doctor made several suggestions and has scheduled him to return next Monday. I'll keep you posted. Thanks to all who've been praying for him. Please continue. We have no new pictures as of now, but maybe by the end of the week....

What hair color do they put on the driver's licenses of bald men?

    We use BellSouth and like it, but ANYTHING would be better than Charter. Sorry, Charter fans–the service was a huge disappointment. I have heard satellite is good, but you might lose your connection during heavy storms.

    Mainstreet Wimax works for me. $20 month for high speed. (they are located in the Computer Clinic center. You do need to be able to see Paris Mountain from your house.

    Hehe. I live out in the boonies, where no DSL is available, but I’ve heard that Bellsouth is the one to use.

    My salon’s name is Shear Design.

    And as for the hair color of bald men, “glossy” maybe? ;)

    Being “bald” only means that there’s no hair on one’s head – there may be lots of other hair to determine a color. :)

    I’ve seen several salons called “A Cut Above”.

    Here’s one that’s not funny per se, but certainly thought-provoking: Novi, Michigan has a salon called “Coram Deo”.

    How about Hair Benders in Lake Forest Shopping Center across from BJU?

    I like the name of the salon I sometimes go to: “Shear Madness.”

    We use BellSouth Extreme, and it is as fast as cable. Not super cheap. . . Also, I hate to tell you, but the new computer we just bought has VISTA, not XP. :o)

    Rob adds:
    We could have gone Vista, of course, but opted not to until Micro$oft works out all the bugs of their newest OS. We figured that things have probably *finally* settled down in XP enough that it’s a good, stable OS.

    We lol at all the hair salon names!
    Look forward to more pictures of the grandson!

    Rob adds:
    We look forward to more pictures too. 8-)

    BTW, many congratulations on the new grandson!

    I use Charter cable, Rob, and have had few if any problems. A couple of outages here and there over the past three or four years, but most didn’t last longer than a couple of hours. Not sure what problems others have had. I bundle my cable TV and the Internet service into one charge. It works for me.

    I have charter, not the greatest. However, if you whine enough, you get what you want! I threatened to drop them due to price and they dropped my bill by nearly $30! I just have the cable internet though and nothing else.

    It’s not our salon name, but I sometimes answer the phone at work – “Mo Better Do-s”!

    Just read a book in which the author was quite creative with a salon name: Curl up and Dye! (Book: HALEY’S HEART by Shelly Beach, adjunct professor at Cornerstone University’s Professional and Graduate Studies program in Grand Rapids, MI)

    @Meg – I’m trying to imagine the kind of haircuts people get there – the “Yosemite Sam,” Pepé Le Pew highlights, etc. I’m not inspired to visit that salon! :-D

    How about “Cuttin’ up on Mane St”? It’s located on Main St. in downtown Rutherfordton.

    @Sherry – Thanks for that salon name. I’m amazed at how much traffic this blog post still receives, over two years later. It’s often viewed and gets many hits in web searches.
