Homepage Layout : Parlor The Core Theme Review
The visual page builder is accessible from page-editor, so yo can either create simple page or use builder to develop complex homepage layout. If you are just a beginner then we recommend to use demo sample files and edit it with page builder. It will save lots of time compare to designing new homepage from scratch.
Parlor homepage demo shows a nice featured section with welcome introduction on the top area. The rest of the home sections are visible as you scroll with mouse or navigate using menu links. The sections here are just given for demo purpose, and you can change them to display other details also. If you want to create a perfect salon site then you must follow single page layout as visible in demo.
The one page layout keeps your homepage ideal for modern users who don’t love to browse so many pages. So, it is good idea to display some content from all pages using featured sections. So visitors can scroll over the homepage to check services, testimonials, rates, contacts etc. Each section takes user to the full page to check any post or page in full-mode. It will save time and also keep user on the website for long time/
We love the page builder elements which helps you to add content sections using shortcodes, widgets and other stuff. So you don’t need much technical skill like coding or web development knowledge. There are visual styling options available to customize background, fonts and layout styles for all home sections and for entire site.
Best Hone Sections For Salon Business :
Image Slideshow : Fine-tune the top area of homepage to show salon shop images in full-width style. Just add an image slider to display photos of treatment or work place along with intro text as overlay. The slider can be set to scroll in automatic mode so user will see real images or work style and salon place.
Featured Sections : ThemeFuse comes with set of niche related icons so you can promote main pages on home sections. Just use icons, custom title, excerpt and link to full page. The demo shows “Book Now” button which takes user to online booking page for salon or spa services.

Floating Menu : We have checked many websites for navigation system and half of them are mostly not well connected with header and menus. Saved WP theme provides a floating header that is always visible on the top of the website. If you keep scrolling on homepage or anywhere then you will see that header and menu links are visible, no matter where you are on the website.
This feature won’t just improve user’s experience but also save time taken by manual scroll process. The header has extra space to display social links and contact numbers. You can also display logo and menu links over there.
There are multiple layouts given for header so you can choose split menu with middle logo and other layouts for header. We love the on page navigation menu system that is give in demo. You can add a link for each home section in menu-bar. So visitors just have to click on menu link in-order to reach on booking, contact, shop or any home section.
