If you are just starting up a new hairdressing business or have an existing one, you need to apply for a licence. We recommend that you contact us to discuss your plans.

Please use the links in the Resource & Links section for the application form relevant to you and then send your form and payment in to Upper Hutt City Council. The Resource & Links section also provides links to more information including ways to make a payment to Council.

All hairdressing shops must be registered with the local authority under the Health Regulations 1966 (Registration of premises). The Certificate of Registration must be displayed in a public part of the premises.

The annual registration fee to operate a hairdressing business is $227 (inclusive of GST) and must be renewed by 30 June of every year.
