Old School Hairstyling Site Adopts "New School" Design

Share Article

HairstylesDesign.com, established in 2004, recently got a makeover to a new "Pinterest-Style" layout, which is getting great feedback from its users.

Proven by websites like Pinterest, the web is becoming a much more visual place and companies that focus their attention on a solid combination of images and text are succeeding much better than those that have page after page of nothing but words. Hairstylesdesign.com (HSD) has taken this trend to heart, and their recent transition to a Pinterest-style layout has been the catalyst for a strong rise in traffic. When first coming to the site, a visitor will be greeted by many images of hot new styles on the front page that when clicked, will bring up a page detailing the hairstyle and relevant information, such as the level of maintenance and the products needed to create the look on a daily basis.

As the name would imply, HSD is based primarily on hair styles, with all images coming from professional stylists across the globe. Their visitors run the gamut from the professional side of the industry to those simply browsing new styles for their next haircut. The website is widely considered to be one of the foremost authorities for hair on the Web and they have expanded to include many services, such as a free virtual hairstyler program and a worldwide salon directory that uses a visitor's IP address to return local results for professional stylists that are located close to the home. The new Pinterest-style layout is a marked improvement over the previous format and displays a willingness to stay current with the ever-changing area of web design.

Just like Pinterest has rapidly exploded into what seems to be an overnight sensation, HSD is also seeing increased numbers of people making their first visit to the site. Rather than specialize in a single type of website, HSD is taking the Pinterest concept one step further. In addition to seeing high-resolution pictures of a huge number of hairstyles, the website also features in-depth articles that go much deeper than just a pretty picture. Specifically, HSD has started to incorporate interviews with new stylists from a wide variety of locations as well as articles that examine beauty techniques and the latest celebrity and fashion trends.
