The Cutting Bar is owned and operated by Claire Chicken. Originally from the UK, moved over to New Zealand with her partner in 2009. They were only planning to stay for 2 years, but both fell in love with the country and decided to make New Zealand their home.

After 12 years experience in the hairdressing industry, Claire decided that opening The Cutting Bar was the next step in her career. Taking quality’s from salons and barbershops to make The Cutting Bar a place for people with busy schedules to come and have a haircut.

The Cutting Bar caters for the whole family and has a no appointment system, which lets you come in whenever is convenient. If you are pushed for time though and do need to make an appointment, we are now taking bookings in one of our chairs on Fridays.
