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 salon owner/stylist.  I am very proud of my heritage which is 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 qualifications.

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

 A desire 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 have never been someone to back down from a challenge but see it as a niche or opportunity to prosper.

 In 2007  VIP Hair Studio, was born the aim to create a friendly and comfortable salon for everyone, customizing styled hairstyles.

 The ultimate satisfaction of my work is putting a smile on someone's face or making them feel great about themselves is the best feeling as a stylist.  Everyday has a new beginning with the bonus of meeting  people from all walks of life and sharing memorable conversations.

 I am truly grateful my customers are more like an extension of my own family, my success of business has without a doubt been because of their continued support.  


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 creative 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:
