Welcome to our brand new website. We’re really excited about it and we hope you like it too.
Around last Christmas Sam and I met with Day One Media with the idea to re-design our entire website and shoot a video in our new Aveda concept Salon. Having stuck with the previous version for nearly four years, we finally decided to breathe new life into our website and approach a good friend to support with the design.
Admittedly, Sam and I were a little bit shy to the idea at first because we knew what a large undertaking it would be, but we also knew that we wouldn’t be much of a Salon if we didn’t have a good website. We had put so much effort into refurbishing Hair at 58 that we needed a fantastic website to compliment its new look. The previous incarnation was great and served us well but it was definitely time to move forward and embrace change and the “dreaded” new technology that goes with it!
That was 5 months ago and it’s taken us that long to come up with a new one. Mainly because we haven’t really had any time but also because we’re not very good at talking about ourselves… Which is ironic really given the fact we’re all hairdressers and that’s one of the main things we do with our clients!?
Typically, if you want to find a salon or hair product you don’t pick up the Yellow Pages any more. You go straight to your Search Engine of choice. A salons website has become its shop window and a poor first impression will probably stop our prospective customer in their tracks. That’s a lot of pressure. Couple that with the fact that people are our passion; we had to get this right.
The old website was pretty slow to load and didn’t really show off the variety that Hair at 58 can offer. It didn’t work on mobile devices either and just had to go. Now the whole site is completely responsive and works on all devices. Day One Media built the site from scratch and gently introduced us to the world of “coding” and once Sam and I got our heads around it, we were amazed by what we could offer.
We have now embedded a stunning video into the website showcasing Hair at 58 and although some of you have seen it many times before, we’re so proud of how it looks and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. There’s a lot more content now with beautiful Aveda pictures, a tour of our stunning salon, a gallery of our old collections and a wider portfolio of services that showcases the different experiences we offer our clients.
The site is much easier to get around and I implore you to have a look at our cheeky introduction to our amazing team. We hope it’s easier to navigate than it was to get them in front of the camera!
I could write about our new site for hours but as the saying goes- actions speak louder than words. It’s now your chance to have a look around and enjoy the fruits of our labour. We look forward to your feedback and I’ll finish by saying a huge thankyouto Day One Media for their professionalism and dedication to making our designs a reality.
Look forward to seeing you at Hair at 58 very soon.
