Kia Orana, Kia Ora, Welcome



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

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!

 I am humbly proud of my heritage,  part Cook Islands  & New Zealand ancestry. 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 *


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
