Competitor Name Analysis
To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful Hair Salons and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
One of the most popular US brands of haircare products has a name that’s a phonetic translation of the French tres aimé, which means well loved.
The name makes a nod towards the ingredients used in the creation of the company’s hair care products. It’s also reminiscent of the company’s first product – the Clairol Herbal Essences Shampoo.
Started by hairstylist Franz Stroher in 1880, the company is named after dauerwellapparat – a device used for the creation of permanent waves and curls. This name is reflective of the hair fashion at the time.
1. Do a Competitor Analysis
Doing a competitor analysis as your first step will save you a lot of time in the future, knowing what names to avoid and understanding why and how your competitors business name words for them will help you in forming your own business names. When analyzing competitors think about:
- What business or product values are they conveying in their business name? How does that work for them?
- Is there a trend in how these businesses are naming themselves? It’s best to avoid sounding like “just another one of those businesses”.
- Who does it best? Why does it work and how can I produce a better name?
2. Focus on Naming your Business not Describing it.
A typical pitfall most businesses run into is describing their business name too literally, using overused salon terms. A more effective business name should convey to customers your businesses and product values at a deeper level. Try name your business in a way that has a story behind it.
Let’s take for example a real hair salon named “Joseph’s Salon & Spa”.
Literally, this name conveys that the salon belongs to Joseph. At a deeper level though, the name evokes a sense of trustworthiness. Knowing who owns the Salon will give your customers a peace of mind since they feel that they are in good hands, especially when they personally know that owner.
3. How to make a more memorable name
Creating a memorable business name is the first step in getting into a customers mind and is also a task that’s easier said than done. Your business name should aim to stop a customer in their tracks and give an extra thought on your product among your wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable name would be:
- Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (Hair Home, Hair Lair)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Natu Hair – Natu in this case means natural)
- Keep it short and simple.
4. Try purchasing a Brandable business name
Brandable business names are names that are non-sensical but read and are pronounced well. They often use letter patterns of Vowel/Consonant/Vowel as these word structures are typically short, catchy and easy to say and remember. For example, some brandable salon business names could be:
- Natu Hair
- Uba Salon
- Polo Salon
You can find a full list of Brandable business names at Domainify.com
5. Avoid combining words just to create a unique name.
Another mistake business owners typically make is creating bad word combinations when they find out that their business name idea is already taken. For example, Joan names her salon business Urban Look and finds out it’s already taken. Because she’s already decided this is what she’ll name her business she tries to opt for similar sounding names like Urban Lukz, Aban Looks or Urbano Looks
You can see how these ideas are a step backward as they are not catchy, easily pronounceable or memorable. In these situations, we suggest starting from scratch and trying the tips we mentioned previously.
