The best place for a man in Warsaw to get a haircut and massage. Period.
I was getting my haircuts at Bar'lon long before the opportunity to do her site came but once Crystal and I started talking about it, I already knew what I wanted to do for her. I did my typical research and discovery with her during my appointments and came to the conclusion that a one-page website would be ideal for her needs. She really just needed to introduce the shop to potential clients, whether they had heard about Bar'lon through a friend or if somebody had been traveling through on business and needed to look sharp before a meeting.
I wrote the site's intro and we agreed that services and pricing were of upmost importance so I used Webflow's CMS Collections to handle that. The built-in Editor allows Crystal to easily add, remove, and edit her services and their pricing with her own login. It's actually super robust and works really well for her.
I knew I wanted to include a photo gallery to show off her work for various hair colors, types, and ages and I thought it would be great to include some shots of the shop as well. People love to see the inside of a place before entering, right?
Lastly, finding the shop was most important so I included the location and the hours. That should be pretty standard for a brick and mortar business.
I had never done a dark website but I read that they're typically easier on the eyes and with the color scheme of her shop. A lot of operating systems, like Android, and other websites were offering the choice of being either light or dark. A dark website, combined with older patterns and icons along with actual photos of the shop would work really well together to convey masculinity since this is a salon for men (hence the name).
Thanks to Crystal for allowing me the opportunity and freedom to let my mind just go. I'm very happy with the first draft, she came back with only a few changes which made launching our website easy-peasy!
