Porirua hair stylist Ni­chola Ah­nau has been named Welling­ton Hair­dresser of the Year.

A se­nior stylist at Reds Hair­dress­ing in Pukerua Bay, Ms Ah­nau im­pressed judges at the July 15 event with her tech­ni­cal skills and in­no­va­tive fash­ion-fo­cused style, to pick up both the Ur­ban Night Hair award and the Supreme Award.

She was thrilled to win the event, es­pe­cially with the high stan­dard of work on show. She said it def­i­nitely made all the long hours of prepa­ra­tion worth­while.

Ms Ah­nau will rep­re­sent Welling­ton in the na­tional com­pe­ti­tions. She is de­ter­mined to take her work to the next level to en­sure she will shine in the na­tional com­pe­ti­tions.
