"Where'd you get your hair done?"

When a lady hears that question, she doesn't want to respond with some barber-shop chain with a boring name like Quality Haircuts or Styles for Women. She wants to drop a name with as much flair and swag as her newly done coif.

Luckily, St. Louis is a treasure trove of creative hair-salon names that are just as exciting as your new hair extensions.

Here are the 29 hair salons in the St. Louis area with the best, most interesting, most creative names:

1. Time of the Essence

At Time of the Essence, time is of the essence. - LINDSAY TOLER
  • Lindsay Toler
  • At Time of the Essence, time is of the essence.

No one can beat Time of the Essence. We're not totally sure what it means, since we've only known to BE of the essence. But if you want your hair styled by Essence's Time, this is the place to go. Plus, it's next to Angelo's Pizza. Yum.

2. Allusions Hair Salon, Inc. Not only do they pride themselves on literary references, they're incorporated! This is the place to go if you want a pixie cut like Daisy Buchanan, golden curls like Amy March or an updo that would impress Mr. Darcy.

3. Lord's & Ladies Grammatically, this shop makes little sense, but that's half the fun. The Lord and his ladies welcome clients to this hair salon with a full set of knight's armor.

4. It's The Hair! This extension shop earns the title for the most literal-yet-not-boring hair salon name.

5. Another Perfect Image Unfortunately, this salon across from Crestwood Court has gone out of business. But it leaves you wondering what its first perfect image was.

6. La Gloire De La Femme Hair Stylist "Jesus is Lord"

  • Lindsay Toler
  • La Gloire de la Femme.

The name comes from the French for "glory of women." We're sure the Jesus is Lord part is the hair salon's motto, of sorts, but we think there's a nice ring to saying the whole thing all at once.

7. Lemon Spalon It's a salon. It's a spa. It's a spalon.

8. Jack of all Fades

He's the jack of all fades and the master of fun.

  • De Vyne Style Studio.

This place is divine.

10. Uhuru Stylz "Uhuru" means freedom in Swahili and has been associated with independence movements in Africa as well as the black power movement here in the U.S. Pair it with the word "stylz"-with-a-Z, and it's a popular natural-hair salon in Shaw.


11. Exoneration Hair Gallery For anyone who's recently skipped out on a murder charge.

12. Blades on Washington Because everyone kept asking, "Where are your blades?"

13. Sip Salon Are it a cafe or a hair salon? No one's sure, but this is a perfect name for a salon known for offering coconut milk and stevia with its coffee and hot chocolate.

14. Show-Me Stylz Way to show your Missouri pride, stylerz.

15. Club Diva Salon For the Diva in us all.

16. Ambiance Salon Even if you don't like your haircut, at least it has a good ambiance.

17. A Company of Two

You'd never guess this was a hair salon. It sounds more like a moving company or service for planning romantic dinners.

18. Youtopia Salon and Spa This place is a utopia for you!

Don't miss the third page. We saved some of the best for last. 19. Headlines Hair Studio

Headlines. - LINDSAY TOLER
  • Lindsay Toler
  • Headlines.

Maybe we're biased since we're journalists, but OF COURSE this is the name of this hair salon.

20. Tiff Loves Locks Need help with your locks? Tiff loves 'em.

21. Bouffant Daddy

The only things better than the name of this shop are the kick-ass wig designs it posts on Facebook.

22. Heads Unlimited It can style unlimited heads.

23. Tuscan Sky For someone who wants hair like an Italian sky, whatever that means.

24. Changes Salon and Spa For David Bowie fans.

25. Juju B's Is it named after the amazing drag queen from RuPaul's Drag Race?

26. Temptor Salon A salon for temptors, not temptresses or tempters.

27. Medusa's Studio and Salon

If it can style Medusa, it can style anyone.

28. Designed Images These hair styles didn't design themselves!

29. Sweet and Sassy Salon For too long, the sassy have had nowhere to go. The reign of the sweet ends here!
