Website for German Hairdresser Chain

Tintin81's picture

Hi,

I am developing a new website for a hairdresser chain in Germany and I wonder if I'm on the right track. Please have a look at the website and let me know what you think could be improved.

The logo was developed years ago by another company so there's no way of changing it. The typeface I chose is Helvetica but I'm not sure if it will render OK on Windows machines. I'm also keen to know if the price list is well formatted or if it should be given more structure.

Sorry for the site being in German only, but you should be able to get the gist of it.

Thanks for any feedback!

That logo is interesting! I like it a lot, although the ampersand could use some refinement.

Your website looks a lot like a blog template. Maybe you could add the red from their wall to your colour scheme to spice it up a bit.

Define typefaces in your css like this: {font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans;}

The website is well designed but it can be more refined with better type treatment, like those navigation buttons on the right can be in a smaller fond size.

Color wise is good (website).

The Price list is well formatted I believed.

The logo design doesn't seems to picture a salon to me, but it's fine since you're not changing it.

Hi guys,

Thanks for your feedback. Frank, I tried to color all links in red, but this doesn't look good on the pages where there's no red in the banner images. I also added three street maps which took me about a full day to develop (please let me know what you think).

Chris, I changed the font-size in the main menu from 1.4em to 1.3em. Does this improve things at all?

Any further feedback is really appreciated!

I like it, and would make an appointment judging by the website ;^)

I like it too. Simple and straightforward. Easy to read, relaxing on the eye and contemporary like their salons.

I think you need to adjust the white balance in some of the images!

Looking good otherwise:)

Looks great. Be sure to put the phone number/email/contact info on every page though.

Hi, thanks for your suggestions.

@frank: What images exactly do you mean? Is the white not clear enough?

@auminium: Good point actually. The only problem is that they have three salons, i.e. three different phone numbers. Where can I put them?

I think frank means that some of your images have a slight yellow cast to them (caused by the indoor lighting). Here's an example of how the same image can look different with a different white balance.

Hope that helps? :)

"Where can I put them?"

I'd put them prominently in the right column.

Hi,

Thanks for your feedback, really appreciated...

I changed the white balance for some of the images, as you suggested. Please have a look.

I also added quite a bit of other stuff and wonder if there's anything I can do to spice it up a little further.

Please let me know if you have any ideas...

P.S. It's a shame there's no forum for "web design" on here. I really appreciate the quality of feedback I get from this forum...

Nobody? Well that would mean my website is... perfect?

How about the little maps I made for each salon? I kind of don't like them and wonder what could be improved.

Tintin,

Your website looks great. The maps are a nice touch. What are your thoughts about the location of the photo gallery? While I didn't necessarily expect a photo gallery on the philosophy page, I can't think of another place to put it. What do you think?
