Stylish handz

Brief from client 

Stylish Handz is a barber shop located in Austin, the client didn't really know what they wanted and they didn't have a particular color pattern, but they wanted something that was easygoing and athletic.

This is the second version of the stylish handz logo I'm currently working on. In this logo I combined the "barber's pole" with an "s" to create a mark that is relevant and memorable. I also utilized a script typeface to enforce a stylish look to the logo

And it's a bit better than the first version, but I don't think you're there yet.

Globally, this logo looks really cheap. The symbol looks very much like a clip art (do correct me if I'm wrong). You will find it in any two bits barber shop out there. Not really imaginative. Here's what a quick search for "barber shop logo" brought up: https://tinyurl.com/yc94d5o4

Do some market research, get inspired by great logos and sketch for hours on end.

Good luck!

I think you need a little more info on your client. Maybe get some idea of company values, process, is there a particular audience that is primary to the style / cuts they perform?
to me when I see this quickly it looks like an unsuccessful attempt at a lighthouse mirroring itself. It took a minute to even see the S in it, but maybe thats because the font that you used doesn't compliment it well, Im not sure, Id have to see it paired with a better font. Also in the word Stylish you are missing the H or your missing the H in hands and need to fix your kerning.
Also what purpose does the circle serve?
