"For example, with this image we chose to create a beautiful, simple cropped haircut for this model as it suits her elongated face shape and bone structure," says Tracey. "This remarkable shape is complemented with a stunning colour of varying shades of soft, muted pastel vanilla blondes."

Pixie cuts and cropped hair is also a growing trend with celebrity figures including Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Aniston, Isabel Lucas, Pamela Anderson and Charlize Theron all opting for shorter do's.

Winged eyes and liquid eyeliner are continuing to remain a strong trend this season, following the release of the Great Gatsby last year.

Make-up is just one element that forms the collaboration and assists the hair stylist - Tracey - and the photographer in creating this beautiful image. Fashion styling is also a major influence in the collaboration and on setting the theme for the image or collection.

This model in particular was styled wearing a polka dot blouse, as the monochromatic palette is a huge trend for Autumn Winter 2014.

This image captures timeless beauty and was inspired by the hair and the model. Both had strong aspects yet soft gentle tones. The mood lighting gave an edge to the photo while the pose and the expression highlights a classical beauty aesthetic.

Professional photographer, Karla Manjaric said, "Shooting beauty is very much like shooting still life. It's working through the nuances of the expression and movement, until you capture that magic shot!"
