Sep 2, 2020

Shakandra is a spiritual teacher and holistic hairdresser who offers hair treatments in Melbourne’s North Eastern suburbs. With a range of 4 hair treatments she works with people of all ages to let their natural beauty shine!

Shakandra wanted to boost awareness of her services and engage more potential customers to book in for a holistic hair treatment. Since moving to Australia from Germany, where Shakandra had been running a successful holistic hairdressing business the aim was to attract like-minded people for an experiencing reconnecting with the four elements; earth, air, fire and water.

practiceedge first developed a new online identity for Shakandra with a fresh single landing page that was fully mobile responsive to showcase her holistic hair treatments.

Our in-house graphic designer created an online concept that perfectly represented her brand and showcased her treatments. Shakandra was furthering her online profile, so it was important that her landing page connected with the earthy colourings and elements which are part of her organic connection when conducting her hair treatments.

The earthy palette emphasizes Shakandra’s organic and connection nature with soft hues of browns and imagery that depicts the earth’s elements.

The strong call to actions allowed for easier browsing and a seamless user experience. The new landing page was fully mobile responsive backed by a WordPress CMS.

practiceedge also provided a professional videographer to create professional and video content that would engage with Shakandra’s target market.
