COVID-19 Information

Face masks are no longer a government requirement at Scout.

However, we will still be wearing a face mask if we have been unwell, or in contact with someone who has been unwell – and we’d love it if you would consider doing the same.

At Scout we love beautiful hair, our worlds are entwined with it.

We work by listening to our clients, who they are and how they wear their hair. We believe all clients deserve beautiful dos that work for them whether a shape, trim, colour or complete hair transformation.

Our stylist at Raumati South all work for themselves in our supportive, co-working salon.


Did you know that here at Scout not only do we love and care about your hair, we feel the same way about our environment?

We are over 95% plastic free, offering refills on shampoo and conditioners so you also can limit your impact. We use ethically conscious products. We love to support local, fairtrade and organic.

Great hair for good people

Nestled in the best wee corner of Kapiti, Scout is a small salon with a big heart. Annabel's vision is for you to have a relaxing and friendly salon experience – a down-to-earth place to have your shape, trim, colour or complete hair transformation.

At Scout you'll always get attentive service & great hair. Our devotion to sustainability is a big part of who we are – from recycling our tin foil, composting the gathered hair, to the use of ethically conscious product ranges. We love to love this earth.

  • "Love the atmosphere, the service is impeccable, and I always leave feeling like a million dollars. Nowhere better in Wellington!"

  • “Had the best hairdressing experience I've had in yeeeears yesterday Start to finish, everything was a touch of class. Covid protocols were en pointe too. The whole experience was 10/10. Can’t recommend highly enough.”

  • "Thank you, Annabel! Totally felt like I was in good hands and could trust your judgement. I’m so happy with my new hair, if only I could pop over to Wellington from the UK whenever I needed a haircut!"
