Is now the right time to start a mobile barbershop business? With more people preferring to stay at home and socially distance, providing personal care services where only 1 – 2 customers are served at a time can be a major competitive advantage.

Mobile barbering has been called “Uber, but for haircuts.” Not only can customers get their hair cut, beards trimmed, and a nice clean shave for the weekend, but the whole barbershop experience happens inside the truck and comes to the customer on demand. And with more people searching for ways to save time, demand for these services could continue to grow over the next decade. By the way, if you’re in the market for a mobile barbershop you can view our used inventory here.

In the U.S. today, barbershops as a whole generate about $4 billion a year in revenue. Mobile barbers take a cut (pun intended) of that revenue every day. Here are some of the best name ideas we came up with for a mobile barber based organized by theme:

How To Pick The Best Barbershop Business Name

Choosing a name is an important step

Specific ways to find a name that isn’t already taken.

While it can seem overwhelming to start any small business, one of the early decisions that will make a big difference in the years to come is the brand name you select. Obtaining proper licensing and permits to comply with the local and national laws is all important, but doesn’t require any creativity. Invest your brain power and time coming up with a name! A name in addition to the services you provide can literally make the difference between being profitable or going out of business.

A good name is more than just a name, it’s your whole brand and feeling that customer , and you need to carefully consider all the aspects of the business in choosing it. So what do you need to think about when choosing your barbershop name?

The type of business often dictates the name, and this is true of mobile barbershops. Whether you include the words “barber’ and “haircut’ are up to you, but it does make it easier to recognize the brand name.

It’s also important to make sure that your branding gives people a clear understanding of what you offer. If you offer more than just haircuts, using the term “full-service barber” makes all the difference.

Other things to think of when naming a business are how you want it to sound. Two words with the same first letter can create a nice rolling sound like Coca-Cola for example. Using your God-given name is another common approach too that works well. You can’t go wrong with something like Frank’s Mobile Barbers.

Barbershops are generally for men only (women usually frequent salons), so you are free to make the name and any taglines as masculine as you like. The barber shop is, after all, a guy’s place.
