Forget using your face shape as a guide – let the inner you shine through in your do. Whether you’re shy, sassy, serious, or super confident – we help you find the latest celebrity hairstyles and choose the perfect look to suit your personality.
You’re: the perennial people person. You carry yourself with charisma and confidence, and need a crop that commands attention…

Your celebrity hair muse: Amanda Seyfried
You need: Big, bouncy, look at me locks.
Get the look: The life of the party shan’t be let down by lackluster locks. This look is all about clean lines and lots of movement–cutting above the neckline and graduating into a slightly longer style in the front.
How to style it: Begin with a root lift spray or a golf-ball-sized amount of mousse and work into the roots of the hair, lifting as you go. Divide the hair into three sections, blow-dry each section using a medium ceramic brush, pinning up each completed section with clips. For big bouncy curls, use a medium barreled curling iron to finish (we love VS Sassoon Big Hair Soft Curls
RRP $42.95 Stockists 1800 650 263). Set the style with a glossy, lightweight hairspray such as David Babaii Mis En Plis Light Styling Spray RRP $25.50 Stockists Ph. 1300 387 204.
You’re: a buzzing ball of sass and energy. With so many people to see and so much to do, you need a crop that can keep up with you…

Your celebrity hair muse: Jennifer Lawrence
You need: A short, low maintenance crop
Get the look: Perfect for the girl on the go, this short, choppy crop adds natural texture to the hair, and is perfect for the finer haired ladies among us.
How to style it: Just spritz towel dried hair with a root lift spray and use a wide toothed comb to comb it through the roots to areas you wish to add volume and texture. Then simply dry off with a hairdryer, using your fingers to add texture and lift. Finish off by mussing it up with a bit of mousse (we love Schwarzkopf Extra Care Volume Styling Mousse, RRP $4.99 Stockists Ph. 1800 022 219) loosely part it to the side, tuck one side behind your ear–and you’re good to go!
You: swing more towards the serious side and don’t suffer fools. But serious isn’t synonymous with boring…

Your celebrity hair muse: Taylor Swift
You need: A sophisticatedly sleek blunt bob
Get the look: This style screams serious sophistication. The blunter the better when it comes to this crop, so be sure to ask your hairstylist for a blunt cut with no layering, and a jaw skimming length.
How to style it: Apply a heat-activated styling spray for strand protection and a silky, shiny finish (we love Oil of Morocco Thermal Protection / Shine Spray RRP $39.99 Ph.1300 424 739). Using a small round brush, blow-dry hair straight, tucking it under at the ends. For an extra sleek finish, flat iron the hair (staying away from the roots to keep voluminous). Finish with a spritz of hairspray to set the style.
You’re: a demure little darling. More shy than showy–the right hairstyle can be the most stylish security blanket around…

Your celebrity hair muse: Zooey Deschanel
You need: a full, soft and sweeping fringe
Get the look: Whether you opt for blunt or soft, a full or sweeping side fringe, bangs are the ultimate shy girls best friend.
How to style it: Apply a Volume spray to wet hair to create lift (we love De Lorenzo Instant Accentu8 Volume Spray RRP $10.50 Stockists Ph.1800 800 347). Blow dry hair straight using a round brush to ensure it has plenty of bounce. When styling a full fringe, there’s no need to use product, as it soaks up enough natural oils from your face throughout the day. Just blast it with your hairdryer to one side, then blast it back towards the other direction to ensure it doesn’t separate.
Fake it before you make it: for those who aren’t quite game enough to cut a real fringe, opt for a faux fringe such as Hairdo Bangs Clip in Fringe RRP $45. Stockists Ph.1800 251 215. Just ask your hairstylist to cut it to shape for you, and make sure it’s an undetectable hair colour match for best results.
