Anne Marie Young, Jingles Salon, Hamilton Winner of Waikato/Bay of Plenty Hairdresser of the Year at the New Zealand Hairdressing Awards chooses: ANTONIA PREBBLE Antonia’s short bob is worn smooth and off the face for a 1960s-inspired look. Oval and round faces suit this cut best. It’s easy to style – blow-wave with a large round brush and then smooth over with irons. It’s also a versatile cut. You can add more body and movement by putting in some soft, brushed-out waves. Star Product: La Biosthetique Shine On Crazy $33.

ANNE HATHAWAY Anne’s pixie cut with a deep side part suits her perfect, petite face. This cut would work for oval and round face shapes and even squarer jaw lines. It’s easy to style, but needs regular cutting every five to six weeks. The pixie can be changed by either adding height to the crown or gelling it down for a sleek wet look.Star product: La Biosthetique Cream Clay $40.

Adrian Barclay, Venom, Invercargill Winner of Southern Hairdresser of the Year at the New Zealand Hairdressing Awards chooses: MILEY CYRUS With its boyish charm, Miley’s blonde crop is still turning heads. This style is perfect for a confident woman who knows who she is.It suits mostly straighter hair textures, but wavy, strong types can be overcome with irons and a well-executed cut. Women from all age groups can wear this look – Suzanne Prentice is a great example.Star products: L’Oréal Professionnel tecni.art metallic gloss wax $33 mixed with L’Oréal Professionnel play ball density material $31.

KHLOE KARDASHIAN I like Khloé’s long locks with their soft flowing layers and flashes of ombré colour. Her hair oozes shine with clever colour usage. Go for the best repair shampoo and conditioner to cleanse and tone long hair, and make sure there is always a leave-in heat protector on board as well. Long hair should be worn big and bouncy the older you get,so a little height at the crown with backcombing will work a treat.Star product: L’Oréal Professionnel tecni.art extra full volume mousse $33
