C.Hill Artistry Hair
Building a visually compelling online presence for C. Hill Artistry

C. Hill Artistry, an experienced stylist with a distinct creative vision, approached me to build her initial website. Seeking more than a conventional portfolio site, she envisioned a platform that not only showcased her talent but also provided a seamless experience for clients to book services. The challenge was to integrate her Acuity scheduling system, while implementing custom styling and content strategy inspired by her unique creative direction.

My job was to ensure that visitors not only gained knowledge of her expertise but also experience a visually appealing and immersive representation of her work.

Myself and the Client Stakeholder

Design Direction

Inspired by 90s hair stylist books, I opted for a modern bento box-style design, stacking elements of photography with strategic calls to action on the homepage. On the services page, 90% of the interface was built using Acuity scheduling. The secondary navigation was exposed, and stackable content was utilized to guide users through the service experience. Service categories are laid out to facilitate prompt booking, focusing on the stylist's top 5 requested client services.
