Like many sectors, the hairdressing sector faces challenges, around returning to a new era of safety and PPE. Whilst a high priority, so too is the interior design to delight their customers. Many clients have invested in textured walls in hair salons. As well as the natural relief, wall panels from Muros are durable enough to withstand heavy traffic from customers and staff.
Loft Brick veneer walls for Aneia Warner Salon
Some hairdressers, like Aneia Warner Salon in Kumeu, made the investment during the first lockdown to create a different salon experience. After locating suitable premises, Aneia recruited new hairstylists and created an exciting new tactile experience — featuring Muros White Loft Brick veneer walls. Add to this mirrored backlighting, polished floors and vintage furniture, and Aneia created a desirable hairdressing experience for her customers that fits perfectly with the salon motto: make yourself comfortable, enjoy the moment.
From Brick Veneer to Formwork Concrete
Hair salon chains may be better able to utilise their purchasing power and mass to re-negotiate better terms and reduce costs. Valued Muros clients such as Synergy Hair, Rodney Wayne and BarberShop have positioned themselves with strong buying power, group marketing/IT, internet sales, franchisor support and finance options for fit-out.
Since 2013 Muros has proudly supplied and worked closely with Hierarchy, and more recently Synergy Hair directly to supply feature walls for their nationwide chain of hair salons. Originally specified for Muros White Loft Brick, the in-salon experience has recently changed to feature an edgy Muros Grey Concrete Boards wall panel design.
Muros Concrete Board panels were the design of choice for recent store fit-outs in Auckland’s Westfield Shopping Centres. The panels are constructed from a durable fibreglass-base, to authentically recreate the look and feel of a form-work (shuttered) concrete finish, complete with light timber grain texture and broken lines resembling planks — all without the weight, expense or time needed to pour real concrete.
