Wellington's Rebecca Brent has been crowned New Zealand’s top hairdresser.

Brent, who is based at Wellington’s Willis York Salon, took out the Supreme Award at the 2013/14 L’Oreal Colour Trophy Awards which were held in Auckland on Saturday night.

Chosen from seven other Supreme Award finalists, Brent’s work impressed the judges with her technique, colour execution and overall result.

The awards were judged live by a panel of three top international stylists; New Zealand-born and Sydney-based Brad Ngata, Caterina Dibiase of Melbourne and Adelaide-based stylist Damian Rinaldo.

Ngata said: ‘‘In a competition of this nature it’s important to see colour ... and my eye was always drawn back to the colour execution of Rebecca’s look.’’

Added Rinaldo: ‘‘Beauty should defy ages, and this look does. It has a cool freshness to it with an edge that pushes the look further. You can really see there’s personality behind it.’’

Runner-up in the Supreme Award was Jock Robson, from Auckland salon Dharma.
