Website Build: Edens Hair & Beauty

A hair salon with vibrant personality and wide expertise. Edens is run by a loving family who love what they do.

Edens approached me in 2018 with the need for a new website. They had one up running, but needless to say it was outdated, unmaintained and neglected. That made me sad.

I worked closely with the team to understand their needs from the website, and designed and built a new one from the ground up.

Instagram Feed

Edens is very active on social media, always posting up their salon work... hair, nails, you name it. It was a no-brainer that the site would benefit from having their feed appear on the homepage. It's great for SEO, and keeps the site fresh.

I used a Wordpress plugin to display a grid of instaedens' latest posts.

Service List

A requirement was to have the salon's services appear on the website with approximations of duration and price, for client convenience. That way when making a booking, they will know what to ask for.

The service list for Edens Hair & Beauty appears on its own page, because it's huge! I stuck to a clean 2-column grid, with images as banners for each category. Text is good. Text is SEO's best friend.


Edens looks and performs great on mobile. It's one of the first things I stick to when starting any website build. A huge majority of the web is browsed by mobile. And to add once again, SEO loooves a good mobile-responsive website. Like cookies and milk.

Web Technologies used: Wordpress & Divi. Built locally using MAMP, migrated using Siteground's WP migrator. Hosted via Siteground.

Techniques: Responsive design, content writing, Wordpress plugin management, SEO
