Anne Hathaway's newly-cropped look requires a "lot of TLC", says celebrity hairstylist Sinead Kelly.

The gorgeous actress recently stepped out showing off her dramatically sheared locks, which is a striking change from the typically long and glamorous tresses she is known for.

Anne has changed up her tresses for her role in a big-screen adaptation of Les Misérables, and hair pro Sinead - who has worked with the likes of Pussycat Dolls star Kimberly Wyatt - has shared her tips on recreating the fashion forward look.

"This look requires a lot of TLC. Regular trims are a must and sometimes people find they have to spend more time styling it than longer locks," she told Cover Media. "However, if you do have the time and energy to devote to this high fashion look then invest in a quality hairdresser to look after you - it will definitely be worth it!"

Sinead - owner of top London salon Sinead Kelly London - also advised on what to consider before taking the plunge with the daring crop. The hairstylist says girls with super curly locks should seriously reconsider the look, as styling becomes tricky with the texture.

"Face shape is very important consideration with this style as it determines the angle of the cut entirely. Most face shapes can pull off this edgy trend, bit I suggest that round face shapes opt for a slightly longer cut which is more flattering," she advised.

"We wouldn’t recommend clients with seriously curly locks to try this cut as it would be difficult to maintain any definition. Wavy is better, but straight hair is best for this look.

"Everyone has a different set hairline, those that are lower down the nape of your neck will prove to be more difficult to maintain as the hair will be more visible and wispy as it grows back."

Sinead also suggests keeping colour in mind when going for the chop.

"This is something that many people do not think about before requesting a crop. If for example the client has a full head of highlights, they will be impossible to recreate as the hair will be too short to hold the foils. Uber short crops require an all over colour," she explained.
