John Andrews

John’s career and passion for this industry started straight out of school, opening the successful Blue Cube hair design in Auckland at age 19. John leapt to nationwide fame as a male model in the 90’s and modelled overseas while owning BlueCube a salon in Auckland. Modelling alongside Rachel Hunter and Simon Le Bon of Duran Duran fame, John also had a contract with Nz’s hit TV show Sale of the Century as one of the team models alongside Steve Parr and Judith Kirk for 500 episodes, and was also voted NZ’s best dressed man at that time.

John has done modelling stints all over the globe while hanging out with UK rock legend Elton John and Freddie Mercury and numerous NZ artists and Super Models. The Narcs, Peking Man and The team at BlueCube were honoured to be the stylists for the Last Benson & Hedges Fashion Awards NZ saw. John and the team at BlueCube also did various fashion shoots for Style Magazine and Fashion Quadily.

After spending time in Australia, John relocated to Wellington, NZ to be closer to his family. Them in August 25th 2011 that, along with Minz, John opened Studio 128 where the magic began. 



Miranda Malcolmson

Minz has a true passion for hairdressing and has been a stalwart of the Wellington hair styling scene for the past two decades. Her career has seen her working in some of the top salons across the northern suburbs and in Wellington City, including Headwaves, Uptop, Colin Lovering and SarahK, collecting many loyal and regular customers along the way. Minz has a passion for the industry and is continuously upskilling herself in this fast paced, ever-changing business. In the past she has done hair for the Vodafone Music Awards, and while rewarding, her true love is making people feel good about themselves and putting a smile on her clients faces.

When Minz and John opened Studio 128 in 2011, they created a peaceful, private salon that provides the very best of services and she found the ultimate home.

Minz will tell you that she thrives in the summertime (her favourite time of year), so when the sun is out you can find her camping, travelling overseas, or simply spending time

with family and friends and walking the dog Honey.


Isabella Vaianu

Izzy is our emerging stylist, soon to start the third year of her apprenticeship. She first started Studio128 after leaving college in 2019, initially gaining work experience through 2020. Izzy had known John and Minz since she was young, so knew exactly who she wanted to learn from and where she wanted to work.

Her passion is working alongside Minz and John learning about precision cutting, creating styles that best suit the clients of Studio128 and working with bright colours. She is also passionate about getting creative with the latest hair trends.

Izzy is a wizard with the curling wand and watching her create all types of curls is nothing short of magic.

In her spare time Izzy likes to keep up with the latest fashion online, listening to music and playing the piano so it’s not ALL about hair.
