Constantin Harach

Orginal Founder

Constantin's a natural creator. Hairdressing from an early age in Lebanon, Costa moved here in 1974 and opened his first salon after 11 months. 50 years on and four salon evolutions later, Badaro is now in the guiding hands of his wife Victoria and son Anthony.

Costa retired from Badaro in 2012 but his vision remains its cornerstone: to help each client be the best they can be. Proud to have created a prominent institution, Costa’s joy today is seeing his family succeed and simply being in New Zealand, where his extended family first arrived 120 years ago.

“It is my pride and joy seeing my family growing & developing an incredible team of passionate hairstylists while ensuring we are sustainable in all areas of our business”
