We like the minimalist design and the feel for proportions the designer displayed in arranging the web design elements.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
High end hair salon located on Melrose in West Hollywood. Targeting working professionals who appreciate cost effectiveness with quality products, skill, and customer service, in a modern elegant ambience, at a fraction of the cost of other salons in the same locale.

What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the web page?
Our salon colors are mostly grays and vibrant greens. we have a lot of wood panelling throughout and 40' high ceilings. we have a glossy white concrete floor and the decor is very modern and clean. we want our customers to feel relaxed but not bored. the website should feel modern and elegant as well, but not stuffy and corporate. it should feel fun without being silly, modern wtihout being cold, warm without being country.
One stylish main page with cute symbol icons to click on to have other windows float up on top after clicking them. like http://www.thedrybar.com but with more modern and less cute. see how it's one page but with tabbed sections. i don't need 5 different fancy layouts for a SALON business. i just need one simple layout with different content display options.
i want a really cute (but not TOO over the top cute, cuz our salon offers men's cuts too!) navigation layout and icons! i really like http://www.thedrybar.com, but of course i do NOT want to be known as "the salon that copied the drybar's website"!!! i want us to be better!
the "styling station rm-12" image shows the styling station we purchased. it's not our actual store. but our layout is very similar--except that we have super high ceilings and more pops of vibrant green. sorry, i would post pics of our salon, but the place is totally cluttered with equipment and boxes all over the place, so i don't want to ruin any brainstorming processes with images of a yucky mess! thanks, designers!
