Chances are you’ve been burned by a bad haircut at some point in your life. Whether the stylist cut it too short, removed too many layers or made you look like you were wearing a LEGO helmet, a bad haircut can really mess with your self-esteem. One of the easiest ways to avoid such a disaster is to take reference photos of celebrity cuts in with you so your hairdresser can get a better understanding of the look you’d like to achieve. Which celebs have the most inspirational hair right now? We spoke to four of Sydney’s top hairdressers who revealed their most-requested celebrity haircuts of 2018.

John Pulitano, Headcase Hair, Paddington

Lily Aldridge

There’s something about Lily Aldridge’s effortlessly edgy beauty look that has stolen the hearts of John Pulitano’s clients, especially those looking to try something new. “The shaggy Lily Aldridge with bangs vibe is a really nice way to go at the moment. It’s time to shake things up a bit,” says Pulitano. “This look is achieved by using a few various layering techniques. Firstly, I would cut the bangs. This gives me the rest of the haircut to see how the hair is behaving,” he explains. Next up, he cuts the side bangs, taking care not to make the side shaping too round. “I also like it to be a bit disconnected around the side. Then, I would shape the long layers around the face.” He adds that “once the whole front is done, I carry the layering through to the back”.

Styling-wise, Pulitano sprays Goldwell Kerasilk Reconstruct Blow Dry Lotion onto dampened hair before blasting hair dry and turning the ends a little with a round brush. He finishes with a generous spray of Oribe Dry Texturising Spray.
