AUGUST 2019 69 HAIR: TRACEY DEVINE-SMITH FOR AFFINAGE SALON PROFESSIONAL; ST YLING: DESIREE LEDERER; MAKEUP: MADDIE AUSTIN; PHOTOGRAPHY: RICHARD MILES; PRODUCTS: ASP AFFINAGE SALON PROFESSIONAL Twilight Texture, by Tracey Devine-Smith for Affi nage Salon Professional (@affi nageamerica), is a collection of varying looks that shine the spotlight on organic-looking (yet fi ne-tuned!) fi nishes on diverse hair types. "Since the focus of this shoot was on the styling, we wanted to showcase the looks in black and white to really emphasize that element," says Devine-Smith. "It was defi nitely a different experience for our team, as we still had to color the hair, but get the balance of shades and tones just right so that they would read well in black and white and complement the models' textured looks. We put in long hours to execute this collection, but seeing the fi nal results made the work worth it!" NEW HEIGHTS "This is a perfect gravity-defying look," notes Devine-Smith. "ASP Kitoko ARTE Crystal Clear Sculpting Wax was integral in creating the style as it helped to add lift and soft texture without clumping the hair together. This look is focused on controlled movement. The hair appears free and natural, but at the same time, every piece is exactly where it should be."
