hear shop

I have seen two hairdressing salons called ‘[name’s] hear shop’. Korean has a perfectly good word for ‘hair’, but most hairdressing salons and haircare products use the English loanword 헤어 (he-eo). ‘hear’ would be 히어 (he-eo), which I haven’t seen, but 비어 (be-eo) is sometimes used for ‘beer’, alongside the Korean 맥주 (maek-ju).
