Tracey Hughes @ Mieka HairdressingAs the name suggests, multi award winning stylist Tracey Hughes' latest collection, Paragon, is simply that - a paragon of the ultimate in hairdressing.
Featuring Tracey's unique, distinctive style, Paragon illustrates her technical craftsmanship and outstanding precision through its complex structural shapes resulting in an impeccably sharp finish.

Distinctive emulsions of amethyst, sapphire, emerald, tourmaline pinks, canary yellow, velvet browns, vanilla blondes and acidic oranges and reds contrast with powdery pastel tones. These bursts of colour bring to light the sharp shapes of the glamorously artistic haircuts.
Using selective lighting to highlight Tracey's beautiful colour work, the moody atmosphere of depth and darkness in the shoot emphasises the quality and attention to detail, with the hair being the sole focus. While slightly varied, the lighting remains consistent exhibiting the classic lines that display optimism and progress.
Paragon represents hair in all its force, with no boundaries in colour or style. The combination of uniqueness and simplicity with an unconventional colour palette is highlighted by natural skin. The lighting reinforces the shapes and smooth texture of the hair, confirming that hair falling in its natural state is the most beautiful.
