zstyle ':completion:*:-tilde-:*' group-order named-directories

will complete named directories before users, and if you use tag-order
instead of group-order, it will only complete named directories (as
long as there is at least one named directory).

zstyle ':completion:*:-tilde-:*' tag-order named-directories
