Excellent question.  There is still some - maybe just a little, now - SEO advantage for having a keyword rich domain name.  With that said, don't let it be a show stopper.

You might suggest that both domains are purchased. When you set up the hosting account, point both domains to the new host and set up a domain alias for the branded URL (Frankies-Fine-Cuts.com).

Set up the SEO friendly domain (hairdressers-hometown.com) as the main website.  Then, simply point the Frankies-Fine-Cuts.com to hairdressers-hometown.com with permanent 301 redirect. 

That should do it!/td>

I am working with a hairdresser.  He needs a domain name, so I was checking availability and found both www.hairdresser-hometown.com and http://www.hairdressers-hometown.com both available.

Question is, should I recommend something along the line of his trading name "Frankies-Fine-Cuts.com" or go for the SEO advantage with the keywords in the URL?
