The New Zealand Association of Registered Hairdressers Inc. is the umbrella organisation for 15 Regional Associations run by hairdressers for hairdressers, and is the only organisation in New Zealand that represents the needs of hairdressers in business today.

The Association was set up to give support to salon owners and employers of hairdressing apprentices. It also promotes high industry standards and ideals and gives hairdressers the opportunity to show their creative and commercial skills in a competitive environment through regional and national hairdressing awards.

The Association’s aim is to help members with advice on the myriad of issues surrounding those in business today, with information to help deal with legal, insurance and employment issues as well as with the everyday problems that are encountered.


As one of our primary objectives for the Association, the NZARH strives to offer our industry sponsors and partners the opportunity to play an active role in the growing success of the professional hairdressing industry in New Zealand.

By joining the NZARH as industry sponsors and partners, organisations demonstrate their commitment to developing our industry and work with us on exciting new initiatives for members.

We are proud to share the growth of our regional and national awards.
