Created by Jakub Federowicz | https://www.behance.net/gallery/135707221/Barbershop-Illustrated-logo
The barbershop logo design has a rich and fascinating history that spans centuries. The modern barbershop logo design has its roots in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. At this time, the barber's profession became more specialized with the rise of the hairdressing industry. Barbershops became more focused on cutting hair and providing grooming services rather than medical procedures. This shift in focus led to the development of barbershop branding, with logos that communicated the services and values of the business.
In the early 20th century, barbershop logos began to incorporate more modern design elements. Many barbershops adopted Art Deco-style logos, which were characterized by bold shapes and geometric patterns. These logos often featured stylized versions of grooming tools and incorporated modern typography.
In recent years, barbershop logos have once again become more elaborate and ornate. Many modern logos incorporate intricate illustrations, vintage typography, and a range of colors and textures. These logos often reflect the growing interest in traditional grooming practices and the resurgence of classic barbershops.

Frequently Ask Questions
Should I use a monogram or a wordmark for my barbershop logo design?
Whether to use a monogram or a wordmark for your barbershop logo design depends on your brand's identity and style. A monogram is typically a stylized combination of two or more letters, often used to create a distinctive symbol for the brand. Monograms can be a good choice for barbershops with longer names or for those looking for a more formal or traditional look. A wordmark, on the other hand, is a logo design that uses the full name of the barbershop as the primary element. Wordmarks can be more effective for brands with shorter names or those looking for a more modern or minimalist look.
What are the most common symbols used in barbershop logo designs?
The most common symbols used in barbershop logo designs include the barber pole, scissors, razors, combs, and mirrors.

To incorporate a vintage style into your barbershop logo design, consider using a color palette that evokes a retro feel, such as muted earth tones, sepia, or pastels. You can also incorporate vintage typography, such as serif or script fonts, to give the logo a timeless look. Adding distressed textures, such as grunge or paper textures, can also create a vintage feel.
