Creating Your Barber Shop Logo

Barber shops are well-known businesses in every community. They provide an important service and rely strongly on returning customers, but they also rely heavily on good branding. A good logo will separate you from your competition and ultimately make you more money in your industry.

Color is Crucial

Color is a little-known form of communication that can tell consumers a lot about your business. This is due to color psychology. 

Color psychology is a study claiming that specific colors make consumers feel a certain way. They associate colors with emotions. For example, red is eye-catching and exciting to the consumer, while blue is a very calming color.

Supercuts is a massive barber shop chain with locations across the country and has a considerable market share in the industry. With its widespread success, it only makes sense that its logo acknowledges one of the vital principles of designing a great logo - color. Supercuts uses the color blue to calm the consumer and to inspire trust when getting their hair cut.

When designing a logo for your barber shop, consider color psychology as your guide. 

Add Flair With Icons

Icons take your brand name or overall idea and represent it visually. They give your logo flair and help make it memorable for the consumer. You want the logo to be memorable because barber shops rely so heavily on returning customers.

Nic Grooming is a barber shop with three locations in Philadelphia with an excellent reputation. It specializes in straight razor shaves and haircuts. To represent this visually, Nic Grooming uses a straight razor and pair of scissors as its icon. That is the simplest way possible to represent its brand in an icon, making it very effective.

When thinking about which icons to use for your logo, simple is better, but as long as it represents your brand name or idea visually - it will be effective.

Fonts: Dealbreaker or Dealmaker

Fonts can make or break a logo. They can change your logo’s overall look and feel, so make sure you consider all options when picking one for your barber shop.

There are two main font families; serif and sans serif. Serif fonts, like Times New Roman, have an extra stroke at the end of their letters, while sans-serif fonts, like Arial, do not.

Many barber shops are either family-owned or very old, so it isn’t uncommon to see serif fonts being used. Serif fonts are often associated with a more mature look and feel and are used by many heritage brands. However, many big chain barber shops use a sans-serif font to appear more trendy than the small barber shops.

A perfect example of a barber shop using a serif font is Paul Molé in New York City. This barber shop has been around since 1913, is family-owned and, of course, uses a serif font in its logo.

When choosing a font for your barber shop logo, think about how you want your company to be perceived by potential customers. If you want a more high-end mature look, then go with a serif font; if you’re going to be more trendy, use a sans-serif font.

You’re ready to design a logo for your barber shop. Follow this guide, and you’ll be on your way to having a great one.

The TRUiC barber shop logo generator requires you to add your business’s name and optionally a tagline, or slogan, to help generate your logo.

2. Choose a Type of Logo Design, Font, and Color Scheme

When designing your logo, you’ll have to choose between having a logo with a graphic or a text only barber shop logo.

Option 1: Graphic

This type of logo displays your business name with a themed barber shop graphic that will be displayed in a few different layouts. The graphic will either sit next to your business name, or it will sit above it.

After choosing this, you’ll need to choose your favorite font style and color pallet to generate your first set of logo choices.

This type of logo displays your business name or just the initials of your business name in a stylized way using creative fonts and typography

After this, you’ll choose a color pallet and generate your logo choices.

Things to Consider When Picking a Logo

Your company logo can convey different meanings depending on the logo design you choose so try branding your company with a logo sporting symbols, icons, and/or fonts that clearly represents what you’re selling to your customers (e.g., use a coffee cup in the logo for a coffee shop).

Color Psychology - The colors in your business logo design can help define the mood of your business. Consider which color scheme will best represent your logo design when using the color editor and creating your company brand with our logo maker.

  • Warm colors such as red, orange, pink, brown, beige, and yellow are considered to be inviting or exciting.
  • Cool colors like blues, greens, and purples convey a relaxing mood in a brand relating to the ocean or a calming atmosphere. 
  • Black and white provide great contrast when branding your business and are easy to see and read. 

Accessibility - There are basic rules when it comes to creating an effective and accessible logo design. 

  • The font you choose should be easy for customers to read and recognize. 
  • Color contrast is vital for the readability of your business logo.

Icons vs. symbols to make your own logo design - Symbols can help to represent your business, like products you sell or the type and quality of service you offer; it’s like a visual metaphor for your logo design.

For example, a logo design for a CBD oil shop could be depicted as a leaf; the symbolism being that it’s earthy, organic, natural, or all of these. Or, if you own a computer store, you can create a logo design that has the icon of a computer, it can really be that simple.

Font style - Choosing the right font for a logo design is important since fonts capture the attention of customers and show what they can expect from your company. 

If you own a more formal business, such as an accounting firm, you’ll likely want to choose a font that is more minimalistic and professional. If you’re opening a business such as a toy store, you’ll probably want to choose a font that is more fun and whimsical.

What is the difference between copyright, trademark, and patent?

Copyright, trademark, and patent are all types of intellectual property (IP)  that do different things: 

Copyrights are often used by artists to protect their creative work; if someone copyrights their work (e.g., novel, song, etc.), they own the rights to be able to do what they want with it, from selling to recreating.

A trademark, according to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), is a word, phrase, symbol, and/or design that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others. Trademarks are commonly used for logos and slogans.

Patents are used to protect inventions and ideas. For instance, if someone creates a type of machine or tool, a patent can grant rights to the inventor so no one can use their invention/idea without permission.
