contemporary style for capital hairdresser


Jean Jacques is a leading hairdressing salon in the heart of Wellington, New Zealand. Situated on Lambton Quay, Jean Jacques services a discerning client base.

In keeping with its reputation the Owners of Jean Jacques sought an international style - clean lines, simple details and natural stone. It was a clear vision.

Muros International was contacted by Wellington-based building firm, EF Construction. The brief was to achieve a textured wall surface with natural grey and earthy tones suitable for a contemporary hair salon in a vibrant city centre.

The stone would need to integrate with natural timber and mirrors within long and narrow design parameters. The thin and space-saving nature of Muros Wall Panels was therefore an important feature, adding relief without loss of valuable salon space. By retaining existing features, such as wall-mounted mirrors, the panels were required to sit flush or below the fittings (i.e. not sit proud).

A variety of wall panel styles were presented to EF Construction and Jean Jacques as possible solutions. Muros Grey Strata Stone was selected as the preferred choice.


Given the urgency of the project and large wall space requiring over 30 panels, the wall panel order was placed immediately to specification from Europe. WIthin 20 days the ordered was airfreighted and delivered to the door, meeting the tight timeframe.

Working for the first time with EF Construction. Muros International supplied detailed advice, resources and reference images/ sites to assist installation. EF Construction Director, Dean Ellis, reported that his team not only found these useful, but the installation and jointing process was straight-forward and successful once started.

The Owners of Jean Jacques were delighted with the finished Muros product; creating the professional decor and look and feel they were seeking for their brand and clientele.
