Executive Stylist & Owner
Colour correction/Blonde Hair/Balayage
Steph is a born and bred Wellingtonian with over 20 years of experience in the industry.
She specialises in Balayage work, complex colour corrections, beautiful blondes and seamless hair cutting.
Her fun nature and humour in the salon make every client's visit enjoyable; she has a longstanding loyal clientele.
Steph has been highly involved in many hairdressing courses and training throughout NZ and is continuously researching and learning new techniques.
Outside of the salon, Steph is a crazy animal lover and spends loads of time at the beach with her gorgeous Border Collie and has volunteered as a foster mum for the SPCA for many years.
Merri-Ann is a Wellington local and has been working in the hair industry for many years. She well and truly knows how to keep a salon running smoothly.
As well as being the friendly face that greets you when you come in the door, Merri Ann also assists us with our colour work and styling to keep everything running smoothly.
Merri-Ann is well-loved by all our clients and being looked after by her during your appointment is part of the Zo-Ar experience.
Blonde Hair/Colour correction
Rosie has been a part of the Zo-Ar team for over 15 years.
Rosie is a perfectionist in her work and is passionate about achieving perfect colour correction, beautiful blondes, and advising clients on how to get the best out of their hair.
Rosie's creative talents are not limited to hair - she is a fantastic cake maker/decorator whose skills are called upon often.
After taking time off to have her three beautiful children, Rosie is back in the salon part time - to the absolute delight of the team and clients.
Tiana is the newest member of the Zo-Ar team, starting with us as a student.
With a natural flair for hair, it became clear we had a new apprentice - she would also become a fourth-generation hairdresser in her family.
Tiana is a quick study, already getting an introduction into the world of colour - and is loving the transformations and creativity it brings.
Tiana is involved in cheerleading outside of the salon and competed in Dallas at the NCA Nationals, where her team took home the gold.

"I worked with Steph at Zo-Ar for around 7 years before moving to Auckland with my partner.
Working with Steph and the team was always a great time. Steph is loveable, kind and accommodating of everyones needs and commitments. But most of all, she is amazingly funny. I am still friends with Steph 7 years later and value that friendship immensely".
Elise - Former employee
"I have worked for Steph at Zo-Ar for over 6 years.
I have to say, it is the best working environment. Sometimes I leave with sore cheeks from laughing so hard!
It is a busy, professional salon, but we all enjoy what we are doing with a few laughs along the way.
I actually look forward to coming to work.
I have formed some wonderful bonds with clients over the years.. they are very special.
It's more than a workplace" X
