Tracey Devine Collection: Glided Glamour

Tracey Devine, Global Ambassador for Affinage Salon Professional, was inspired by what she saw on the runway to create a new collection that focuses on strong shapes with plenty of texture that still allow the hair to move freely.

 
This is a look that screams bespoke, customized, individual. First, Devine used a medium-barrel curling iron to set the hair. To style, she ruffled the hair with her fingers and pinned it up to create a soft, Mohawk shape. She used a Moonlighting technique to color the hair so that light areas would reflect off a dark base. Base: Infiniti 4.036 Café Noir (20gm) and Infiniti 4.117 Anthracite (20gm) with Converter (80gm); Moonlight Sections: The “moonlight” sections were pre-lightened using Lite Bleach Lightener with Affinage 10-volume Crème Developer; Hot shotz: Red Chili (10 gm) + Burnt Copper (5gm) + Hot Chocolate (5 gm) was applied to towel dried hair at the basin and processed for 10 minutes.

The secret to this style is “lots and lots of plaits and braids,” which Devine flat-ironed before releasing and texturizing by hand to create a look she calls “pure street style with a glam edge.” Overall Color: Affinage Infiniti 1.7 Blue Black plus Converter; Balayage: Affinage Lite with Affinage 10-volume Crème Developer; Toner: Infiniti 8.33 Light Intense Golden Blonde plus Intensives 0.3 plus Converter and Infiniti 8.33 Light Intense Golden Blonde with Affinage 30-volume Crème Developer.

After spraying hair with Heat Defy Kitoko ARTE, sections were wrapped in foil and bent in a zigzag pattern. A flat iron was lightly tapped on the foil to create a heat set. Once the hair was cool, the foil was removed and hair was brushed out for a full effect. A full head of highlights was applied, alternating a high-lift and a lightener formula. High-Lift Formula: Infiniti 12.1 High Lift Arctic Light Ash Blonde + Infiniti 12.0 High Lift Arctic Light Blonde (20gm each) with 40-volume Affinage Crème Developer (80gm). Lightener Formula: Lite Bleach Lightener with 20-volume Affinage Crème Developer.

Jumbo braid extensions were added to each braid to create a chunky feel and frizzy ends. Overall Color: Infiniti 12.771 Cool Arctic Breeze + 1Ž4 formula Intensives 0.2 with 40-volume Affinage Crème Developer; Glaze: Color Dynamics Pasteliser became its own shine treatment.
