HAIR SALON WEBSITE REDESIGN
UI/UX design / coding
In 2014, as a project for my first coding class at DePaul University, I created a website for a family member's hair salon. Noticing how much it was lacking visually, I recently decided to redesign the website to better reflect the salon's modern style.
OBJECTIVES To redesign the website for Jefferson Park Hair Studio and code it in HTML and CSS
SKILLS Front end development, User Interface Design
CONTEXT Personal project
During my freshmen year at DePaul University, I took my first coding course, where I learned the basics of HTML and CSS. For my class project, I had to create a website, and took the opportunity to create one for a family member's hair studio. At the time, I had been very proud of accomplishing such a feat. However, I began to notice that, although the website was usable, it was not aesthetically pleasing and did not do justice to the salon it was representing. I decided that I wanted to redesign the website.
I began to make simple wireframes for the new website. I knew that there was not a lot of content that would be present on the site, and decided to go for a clean, minimalist look. The home page would only feature an image of the styling chairs, rather than a grid of different images around the salon. I wanted to make the Services page more appealing, as I felt that users would visit that page most often in order to see the salon's prices.I also decided to implement a Gallery page to show styling done by the salon.
I made more changes to the design as I was coding it. For instance, I decided to merge the Home and About pages and insert a Google Maps API into the Contact page. Below is the final coded design of the website.
