A former hairdresser has made the cut as a NZ First list MP.

Ria Bond, of Invercargill, who was elected to the national board of the political party in 2012, was named at No 12 on the party's list.

Bond said she was absolutely excited and proud to be named a list MP for her first time standing in an election.

Her next step will be to continue getting out and talking to people around Invercargill, she said. "It's about giving the message I'm here."

NZ First returned to Parliament in the 2011 election, winning seven seats.

For Bond to take a seat in Parliament this election, NZ First would need to win about 14 per cent of the vote.
