Hairdressing for the stars

Cambridge hairdressers Petra Ayers and Anna Hastings will be rubbing shoulders with television’s “who’s who” at the industry’s glitzy annual awards event next week, working their magic on the hair of presenters and the “talent”.

Invited by awards’ sponsor Fudge, Petra and Anna’s salon, Hair on Duke, was the only salon approached for the New Zealand Television Awards which will be held on November 22 at the Civic Theatre in Auckland.

The local hairdressers will join two Fudge staff members, making the participants look their best in 45-minute rostered styling appointments. The dynamic hairdressing duo said they were thrilled and excited to be part of the event, with Anna adding it was good to be pushed out of their comfort zones. “It’s always good to keep yourself challenged,” she said, adding that they feel “very lucky” to be given the opportunity to take part.

Neither hairdresser watches television, so they are unsure of what to expect on the day, but Petra’s husband Jacobus is keen for them to get a selfie with the crew from The Crowd Goes Wild.

The awards night comes just after Hair on Duke celebrated its first birthday, with Petra adding that maybe part of the reason they were chosen from so many salons was the “positive vibes” they have aimed to cultivate in their new business.
