Tracey Devine Tours USA for ASP
ASP Global Ambassador Tracey Devine took to the stage across the USA showcasing the ASP KITOKO range with a range of techniques and skills. The diverse range of colours from KITOKO and ASP Colour Dynamics helped demonstrate a mix of commercial and wearable styles based on this season’s key trends.

“I’ve focussed on showcasing the incredible range of colour which really does allow us colourists to stretch our imagination. The possibilities are immense and these are the colours I use to create our global imagery,” said Tracey.

Tracey was joined by a team of ASP educators and toured major US cities of Louisiana, New Orleans, San Diego and Washington DC.

The tour was so popular that Tracey will be returning to Bloomington, Minnesota in October for further shows.

Managing director Eric Bailey, said: “We have an incredible network of salons in the USA using ASP so Tracey’s shows were warmly received. I personally spent some time over there watching the shows and was immensely impressed by the creativity and expertise of our team.”
