As far as anyone in the haircare industry is concerned, there is no better Hair Studio in Wellington than that of Jean Jacques. The elegance, precision, and overall stylistic vision of our haircuts is unsurpassable, and the many years we have operated within this windy city have imbued our staff with knowledge and experience that one cannot gain at Servilles academy, or even from practicing the art in other such busy cities as Auckland, or Gisborne, which each present their own difficulties, granted – yet the cutthroat world of working as a hairdresser or stylist turns our new recruits into veterans, turfs out the weak and lets only the strong survive – due to this, our staff are not only excellent practitioners of the art who work with integrity and dedication, but are tough as nails, ready to deal with the gnarliest hair that Wellington can throw at us, and believe you me, some Wellingtonians have truly nasty hair. It is through the fire of conditions like these that the best hairdressers are forged like fine weaponry, and it is from this selection of troopers that we pick the very best to staff Jean Jacques’ own Hair salon in Wellington.
Below are brief treatises on some of the world class brands that we at Jean Jacques are proud purveyors and retailers of – read on to find out just what makes these excellent products so special to us, and why using these products puts both you and our hairdressers a cut above the competition.
Coming, as the saying goes, straight outta Leeds in the United Kingdom, Good Hair Day, oft-abbreviated to ghd, is a manufacturer of haircare products. They are the market leader in hair straightening irons, with their particular brand of iron (the GHD Platinum) being sold in over 50,000 salons worldwide. For those poor residents of Wellington who are on a continual mission to straighten their hair, but have at all turns been usurped by the fierce gusts of wind that continually plague the city’s inhabitants, there is no other brand quite like GHD to rely on for superior hair straightening technology. The results given to you by a GHD hair straightener will have the seemingly insurmountable obstacle, the notorious Wellington Wind, completely at a loss with what to do next.
Formulated in 1964 by the top scientists working in L’Oreal’s advanced research division, Kérastase is a luxury line of hair and scalp care products that when used, cannot help but result in hair that is strong, resilient, and deeply supple – from well-kept ends to hair’s luscious body and down to the healthy roots, Kérastase in NZ is really the only brand that anyone concerned about the condition of their hair should be using, for they cannot be surpassed in terms of hair cair, hair style, or any other criteria as pertains to the upkeep of hair.
Inspired by a friend with ovarian cancer in 2001, Markham began development of the Pureology Shampoo line with the goal in mind of developing sulfate-free/carcinogen-free formulations that would not aggravate the condition of one so afflicted. His goal was achieved above and beyond all expectations, for the products he developed were not only incredibly safe, but did a remarkable job with regard to one of the most difficult aspects of hair style and care, that of course being hair color preservation. In a flash, Pureology Color Care was created, and it still stands today as an industry leader, representing the values of both long lasting personal and environmental health and supreme hair color retention.
Our hair contains millions, if not hundreds of millions, of disulfide bonds. These bonds give the hair its lustre, its structure, its strength & stability. When disulfide bonds break, it results in hair damage. OLAPLEX shampoos in NZ restore all split-ended, damaged, ruined or otherwise compromised hair by repairing it (and its disulphide bonds) from the inside out with our single patented ingredient, bis-amino diglycol dimaleate. Once all the bonds are repaired and in total alignment, you will have illustrious, elegant, opulent, gorgeous, radiant hair.
