Kia Orana, Kia Ora, Welcome



VIP Hair Studio is nestled in Takuvaine, conveniently located on the backroad of Avarua township of Rarotonga,  Cook Islands.

My name is Eliza I am the owner/stylist of 'VIP Hair'.

  I am humbly proud of my heritage,  part Cook Islands  & New Zealand ancestory. I hail from Aotearoa, and am now embracing my Cook Islands roots and culture by living in  Rarotonga.

 I have a diploma in hairdressing completed in  Auckland, New Zealand. Along with other hair and beauty international qualifications.

 A personal goal to own/manage my hair salon in paradise became reality.

 An initiative to create a full hairdressing service with professional salon-quality products/services was a new concept for the islands,  but despite the naysayers and doubters I envisioned the dream and that became the motivation.  I embraced the challenge and saw it as a niche & opportunity to prosper.

 In 2007  VIP Hair Studio, was born from heart & soul with the aim to create a friendly, personable & comfortable salon environment for everyone.  

The best part of my work is empowering my clients to not only look amazing but feel great!  Self Care * Self Love *


VIP is exactly that, from the moment you step through the door, we offer a one-on-one customer-focused personable service and work to help you achieve your desired look and style.  Very Important People!

Dreams are sometimes your best ideas never give up on them!


I believe you can never stop learning, and I'm continually learning the latest techniques, and gaining product knowledge. This enables me to deliver the best service, and quality products, which I can share with my customers.  I have now expanded into beauty services due to high demand.  My training includes:

-  Winters School of Hairdressing NZ

- Speciality product training: GOLDWELL, KMS, MATRIX, WELLA, FAMA, more

- Tony and Guy NZ
- Superior Hair Extensions 

-Certified Lash Technician & more.

- Certificate Spray Tanning

Meitaki, thank you
