In today’s article, we look at the best beauty parlour, spa, and hair salon themes now available for WordPress in 2018. If you’re an entrepreneur looking to promote your own establishment, or a developer looking to build a site for a client, hopefully you’ll see something you like.
The primary requirement of a salon, spa, hairdresser or massage parlour theme is that they look the part. We believe all the themes on this list meet that requirement. Because we live in the present, and not the past, they should be responsive – meaning they’ll work and look great on smartphones and tablets. All of the themes this list meet that requirement too.
Beyond that, must-have features will depend on your needs. Want to book appointments online? Some of the themes here include booking forms. Want to sell merchandise? Better pick a theme with WooCommerce support.
We selected these themes by hand, based on quality of design. And if you’re still looking for reliable hosting for WordPress, we recommend Bluehost.
Oh, we really like this one. White space galore, and subtle, soft animations provide the Bleute theme with an air of calm & serenity that’s certain to make a strong first impression on discerning visitors and potential clients.
The theme includes several subtle design and layout presets, and it’s clear that the development team put a lot of time and care into WooCommerce compatibility, making this a particularly good choice for anyone building an e-commerce site.
The popular plugins Contact Form 7 and Mailchimp are supported, and a couple premium add-ons are bundled free: Visual Composer — for code-free, drag & drop page building — and Master Slide, for assembling visual engaging homepage slideshows.
Advanced Customfields Pro is also provided, whatever that does (OK: it allows you to add more data fields when creating pages).
Bleute is responsive, providing a consistent user-friendly experience across the full spectrum of devices, and plenty of options are built-in for tweaking the elements and code-less customization. Well documented and supported. Recommended.More Info/Download

Eight color schemes are ready to go out of the box, but if you’re looking to get specific, you can create your own in just a few minutes using SASS (though we wouldn’t recommend this for web design beginners).
