Blush Salon + Spa Website Design
Blush Salon + Spa
Custom WordPress website design and developmentLaunch Site
Blush Salon & Spa contacted me because their current web presence didn’t match the high-end services they provide. They needed a new site with a modern, professional look and feel that is fully responsive so that it could be viewed on any mobile phone or tablet without sacrificing content or style. I started on the homepage with a series of full screen images, each with a clear call to action. A parallax effect was added to make it look like the user is revealing each image as they scroll. With beautiful, high-quality imagery, you immediately know that you’re in good hands and are dealing with skilled stylists.
The other pages keep it relatively simple by focusing on the content, making sure it’s well organized and easy to read. From font choice, to colors, to ample white space, each design decision reinforces the high-end look you experience when visiting Blush in person. You’ll find functionality throughout the entire site, including a sticky menu that appears when you scroll down the page to ensure you can easily access all pages from anywhere. The contact page even includes a customized Google map to tie into the salon’s colors. I wanted to make this site as personalized as the salon and spa services Blush provides its customers.
Integrated Instagram Feed
In the salon and spa industry, pictures are everything. The latest styles, trends, hair, and nails are all best shown and shared on social media. To encourage user engagement with Blush's Instagram account, I built a feed to embed into their website. It automatically displays their latest posts, including likes and comments, and gives users a way to interact with Blush directly without having to leave the website.
Custom Google Maps Styling
Google maps are ubiquitous on websites today. They're easy to implement and provide accurate information in an interface that users are familiar with. So it was important to find a way to make Blush's map stand out. By streamlining what items are shown on the map, as well as coloring and shading options, I was able to provide a map perfectly tailored to Blush's style.
Services Menu Accordion
Blush offers a wide variety of services, each with unique pricing based on the experience of the stylist. Because of this, I needed to provide pricing details without overwhelming customers. The solution was to build an accordion for all hair service items. No prices are shown until the user clicks on what they're interested in. The item expands to show only the prices that apply to that particular service.
