This post is for the natural hair blogger (or really any fashion/beauty blogger) who wants to start selling products, clothes and accessories on their blog site.
First of all, let’s just all admit upfront that you could hire someone to create the store for you. That would be the easiest way. However, if you love to work on your own website, or want to save your money, you could jump right in and make it a weekend (or week-long) project.
Either way, I’m going to share three WordPress themes that you can use for inspiration to turn your natural hair blog into a powerhouse eCommerce store! Whether you’re selling your own hair care products or buying them wholesale to resale, these themes are worthy of review.
I personally like using the WordPress themes from Themeforest.net and Studiopress.com. WordPress themes prices can range from $47-129. Depending on your skill set, it could take you one week or two (or a weekend if you’re really focused) to complete your website.
The themes mentioned below contain affiliate links. This means that if you decided to purchase a theme, I will receive a commission at no extra cost to you.
Here is one of my favorite themes to use fromThemeForest.net
Avada: There are so many cool options with this theme, you’ll never want to use another WordPress theme again. It integrates well with Woocommerce, mailchimp and your basic contact forms. It’s a breeze to use and install.
I haven’t used the two themes from StudioPress, but I I like the simple and clean layouts of the Jessica and Glam themes.
Jessica: The Jessica theme has the look of all the big retailers but without all the hassle. Complete with WooCommerce, iThemes Exchange, WP eCommerce, the theme is great for those who want a clean and simple website.
Glam: The theme is a good mix of fashion blogger and eCommerce store soft perfection. Users can customize their site colors based on their branding, logo and style. The theme comes with an Instagram widget for the sidebar and footer. This is a must when creating content for your ideal audience.
Ahhhh, all the themes are really good, but which one is good for your website? Which would you prefer However, the flip side is that you will need to put it together yourself.
