Tracey Hughes: Alabaster

Spotted… Tracey Hughes and her team released their latest collection: Alabaster. And we love it; subtly beautiful. The team has used pastel-light shades to create tasteful colours. No drama yet provocative. Just stunning! 

 The team says: “Our mission is to bring forth beauty in the world. Our culture is where creatives flourish. Our connections allow for harmony and empowered strength.” We can see this shining through in this collection with the subtle hues to bring out the elegance of the models.  

Let’s hear more about where their inspiration came from:

 “Inspired by the beauty of Alabaster stone we bring you purity within creative artistry. Fashion is elaborative, yet simple. Hair is harmonious yet defiant.”  

We love the colour work from Tracey Hughes, and it’s great to delve deeper into what inspires her to create these beautiful collections. Let’s hear some more about Tracey’s career… She has been very successful in hairdressing beyond even her own expectations (so she tells us). She is constantly evolving her skill and reach; from a hairstylist, salon owner, educator, hair director, artistic director, global VP of education, and brand general manager. Tracey combines strategy with creativity and seeks to inspire others in the process…  


Tracey wasn’t alone in making this stunning collection, and as we know the photographer plays a huge role in ensuring the looks and coloured hair is captured perfectly… Amber Toms helped Tracey and the team capture the Alabaster collection. Amber is known for producing exquisite beauty and fashion images that resonate with chic modernity. Amber’s aim when working is to marry the artistic beauty of the hair with high-fashion edge.  

We hope you draw inspiration from this collection. And please share your collections with us on IG @colourworlduk – we love seeing your work!
