  • Use a <button> element for the middle bar of the hamburger icon.
  • Use the ::before and ::after pseudo-elements to create the top and bottom bars of the icon.
  • Use position: relative on the <button> and position: absolute on the pseudo-elements to place them appropriately.
  • Use the :hover pseudo-selector to rotate :before to 45deg and :after to -45deg and hide the center bar using:background-color transparent.
