Tracey Devine began her career in 1985 with her first hairdressing job at the age of 15. She was a natural hairdresser from the moment she picked up her first pair of scissors and was running a full column within nine months. In 1994 she expanded her skills and did a HND in Business Management. 18 months later she moved to Aberdeen.
In 1998, Tracey opened her first salon, Angels. A run of victories as Scottish Hairdresser of the Year (2006, 2007 and 2009) placed Tracey into the British Hairdressing Hall of Fame alongside industry legends such as Trevor Sorbie.
Tracey was crowned Fellow with Honours in 2007 by the Fellowship for British Hairdressing in recognition of her achievements as both innovator and educator. She fine tuned her stage work and soon became a regular platform artist at major events including Salon International. The same year Tracey also secured Most Wanted Photographic award for the Most Stylish Hair Collection to grace the pages of aspirational magazine Creative Head.
In 2012, Tracey added to her accolades by winning the title of Men’s Hairdresserof the Year and in 2014 Tracey was the Fellowship Hairdresser of the Year, a title she is immensely proud of.
In tandem with building her creative strengths, Tracey meticulously developed her entrepreneurial skills and turned her salons, Angels, into the most respected and successful destination salons in Scotland.
In 2013 Tracey joined professional haircare brand Affinage as its Global Ambassador – a role which entails her being at the heart of the professional industry, touring the globe conducting shows and seminars. She is responsible for the creative direction of the company and heads up all their photographic work.
In 2014 Tracey made the decision to sell Angels and focus on her session work and her role as Global Ambassador for Affinage. She also began bringing her own capsule styling product range to life, which she has been researching and developing for some years.
Today, Tracey travels the globe working on shoots, seminars and product development as well as creating her trademark stunning, fashion-forward hair collections that she’s renowned for.
