We opened The Cutting Bar in 2016, and every year we’re growing. We’ve created a really awesome space for our customers and staff. We offer a full range of salon services and use and love Keune Hair Cosmetics.

Our clients are 50/50 men & women. Guys enjoy the space as it’s not a traditional barber, and ladies love it as they feel comfortable coming into the salon and walk out feeling amazing. We all like to have a chat (and a bit of banter) to all our clients and make everyone feel really welcome. It’s relaxed and friendly. Our clients are our #1 priority! and we really appreciate it when they leave us awesome reviews. We now have nearly 200 on Google and over 2000 on Fresha, our booking platform.

The salon is a beautiful place to work in. It’s clean, bright and airy. It has windows all around to let in the natural light.  We have a photography area to take pictures of your work to promote yourself. We’re a happy team that all get on well and work together. We like to bounce ideas off each other and learn from them.

My vision has been to create a comfortable and enjoyable place to work.  A place that you can earn a good wage, run your own collum, improve your skills and have fun.

We are always accepting applications from passionate and dedicated Stylist’s that are creative and excel in colour & cutting. You provide exceptional customer service, can run a busy collum, look after your clients and teach them how to look after their hair at home. You love to learn about new techniques and products in the industry. Your confident, love working in a team environment and have a genuine passion for your craft.

  • Basic pay plus commission
  • Commission on product sales
  • One free product per month
  • 25% staff discount on retail products

  • Every year we have a Christmas and mid-winter get together. In the past we’ve done golf, shooting, archery, massages, escape room and this year we are off for lunch at Awaroa Lodge.
