Are you looking for a way to grow your beauty salon business?
Today, people can find many hair and beauty products that they can easily use. If someone wants to style their hair for an event, they don't have to bother going to the salon to get their hair done. Just use a product or two, and they can style their hair. The convenience of these products makes many beauty salons have to provide extra services, apart from haircuts, of course, to attract and acquire customers.
Of course, salons have services that ordinary hair care products cannot provide. The experience and knowledge of the hairdressers and the unique salon atmosphere cannot be compared to the hair care that people do at home. This has led some to be willing to spend more on extra services at the salon.
Unfortunately, this is not just about your beauty salon alone. Every beauty salon also provides the same extra services and experiences and probably does so for a lower price. Competition is unavoidable. You have to find a way to make your beauty salon look special and attract more customers to stay in business.
One of the things you can do to develop your beauty salon business is to create a website for your beauty salon. By having a website for beauty salon, you can reach more people because people are used to searching online and establishing your online presence. You can also more easily inform your beauty salon services and products. You can use the reservation feature, for example, to make it easier for people who want to visit your salon.
Fortunately, anyone can create a website now. You can find a lot of website creation services that can help you create a website easily and quickly. You can even find services that you can use to create a website for free. However, when it comes to competition, using free services will not make you beat the competition. Spending money to create a website with paid services can be the best investment for your beauty salon.

One of the most important elements on a website is visual. Someone will be interested to browse more of a website and also longer if they find the appearance of a website is attractive. This is of course, very important for your salon website because you want people who have just discovered your website to keep reading about your business.
One of the strongest elements in the visuals of a website is a color scheme. Colour is not just a complementary element to a website. Colour can show the mood or image of a business. Beauty, for example, is generally associated with pink or other bright colors. You can and should dig deeper into the color schemes that beauty salons typically use.
If you feel overwhelmed, you can always learn from other people's hairdressing salon websites. You can easily find websites that you can use as references. Write down one or two things that you find interesting from someone’s salon website and apply them to your salon website.
- Create A Compelling Title Page

Use strong and eye-catching visuals on your title page. Strong visuals can help you make a strong and lasting impression on visitors. If possible, add a slogan on your site's title page. Like strong visuals, catchy and memorable slogans will make people remember your business better.
- List Your Beauty Salon Services

Customers have seen your title page and are interested in your beauty salon. Next, you need to get them interested in the services your beauty salon provides. To do this, you need to list what services your salon provides on your hair salon websites.
You can list your services in several ways. You can use text only. However, you shouldn't forget the visuals either. You can combine images with text to explain the services provided by your beauty salon. Make sure to optimize the images you used so you can get better results.

Make sure that the contacts you provide are still active. You don't want a customer to cancel visiting your beauty salon because they couldn't reach you and became doubtful, right?
- Make Your Website Easy To Find
The internet is a vast forest. If the forest is full of trees, then the internet is full of websites. To get more benefits from having a website, you must be able to make your website easily accessible to people. You can just advertise on Google or other search engines so that your website always appears on the main search page. However, this will certainly cost money and your website may be difficult to find again after you stop advertising. One way to make your website easy to find over and over again is by optimizing the SEO of your website.
To understand SEO, you must first understand what keywords are. When searching online, you type something in the search field. For example, suppose you want to find out the nearest beauty salon in New York. You will more or less write 'beauty salon in New York' in the search field. What you type in the search field is what is called a keyword. Google will take these keywords and search for websites or pages of a website that contain these keywords. Google will then display and sort its search results based on several factors, one of which is the appearance of the keywords that you provide and the relevance of the website to the keywords.
Another thing to pay attention to is the readability of your website by the Google search engine. When reading a website, the Google engine does not see the appearance of your website but the code or programming language written to create the website. This means you have to tag the content on your website with relevant keywords.
If you feel overwhelmed by all of this, you don't need to worry. Strikingly can help you optimize the SEO of your website. Strikingly has prepared a basic guide to help you optimize your beauty salon website SEO. You can find anything you need to do to make your beauty salon website easier to find in our help center.
Those are the easy steps you can follow to create your beauty salon website with Strikingly. You only need to choose the template provided by Strikingly as a template for your beauty salon website. Then, you need to create a name and logo for your business. You can easily create a name and logo using the name generator. You can also choose to create your beauty salon logo with your own hands. Next, you need to design an attractive appearance. You can view other people's beauty salon websites and modify what they do. After you attract customers through an attractive appearance, you need to include what services your beauty salon provides. You then need to provide a contact that the customer can contact, either to ask questions or to make a reservation or booking. Finally, you have to make your website discoverable by optimizing the SEO of your beauty salon website.
