What should I name my barber/indian head massage/henna tattoo business?

My friend wants a name for her new business that includes barbering, Indian head massage and henna tattooing. She liked the names "Barber on a Bike" and "The Tonsorial Artist" but these are both taken. Any further suggestions? We are in the UK.

Mastak Arts, or Studio Mastak? Mastak = head in Hindi.*

*I don't speak Hindi, I just found this word via computer translation. Your friend may want to run this by a Hindi speaking person to make sure it doesn't have unintended meanings or otherwise sound silly.

Just my two cents that, even if you can find an unused combination, the word "tonsorial" should be avoided. I think a lot of people don't know what it means, and it tends to bring to mind things like dentistry, barber-shop quartets, or a hipster hair place with attendants dressed like old-timey riverboat-casino card dealers.
