Stay Sharp! Make a Stylish Barber Shop Logo
Now we both know that as a barber you are especially careful with looks and style. Your work speaks about you as a professional, and nothing is more impressive than a haircut and shave that is hella sick! Naturally, you should put the same effort into making your business’s image look as good as your services.

What Do I Need to Open My Barber Shop

If you are still in the planning stages, the following checklist will be very useful to get your needs in order:
- Location and Facility- Unless you are willing to spend your savings, a leased space is cheaper while you try out your business. Prime locations are more expensive but they put you in a better spot.
- Get Qualifications- You need a master barber’s license to open your business, which requires training and passing an assessment test. You also need an employer identification number, federal tax identification number, and a sales and use tax identification number in some states.
- Shop Requirements- Comfort and aesthetics are an important consideration when buying equipment for the business. The equipment you purchase should meet state standards in order to operate the business. Some of the things your barber shop will need include:
- Barber chairs, child seats, and seats for the waiting area
- Scissors, clippers, trimmers, razors, brushes, mirrors, etc.
- Disinfectant chemicals and sanitizers per station
- Spray bottles, neck dusters, talcum powder, towels
- Garbage cans for waste products and ‘to be cleaned towels’
Pro Tip: If you are looking for a loan, it helps to have a written business plan that is consistent and that looks professional. There are great apps to help you achieve this like Enloop App or StratPad.

Why is this relevant to your business? Let’s say you get your first round of customers, but you don’t have a business image just yet. It’s then very probable that the only thing they will remember is your location, kind of, and that’s it! There is no Facebook to look at, no Google Business, no Foursquare, and on Instagram for them to follow. Other people can’t really see your work making it harder for them to decide if they like it before actually going to your shop. So you are stuck hoping that the people that pass in front of your shop will want to try your services.
There is another option… you can get your branding in order so that people will be able to find you, like you, remember you, and choose your barber shop over others!
Branding means using a consistent style on all your prints or digital assets. Stick to the same fonts, colors, styles…
