The Nebula Collection was inspired by the Nebula phenomenon which is created when a star blows off its outer layers after it has run out of fuel to burn.

"To be honest, our interest in space began with the movie Star Wars and we were checking out all the cool costumes and design work involved in the movies. During that time, we accidently stumbled onto images of Nebulas, so we checked out the database of images taken by the Hubble Telescope and we were instantly blown away by the colors and beauty," says Mary Alamine, co-owner and Creative Director of Royals in Castle Hills and Royals in Hornsby.

According to Alamine, the team at Royals Hair wanted the haircuts to have sharp and clean lines because they wanted to portray a mixture of polished and textured finishes. "This gave us the ability to create shapes that contoured perfectly to the brief."

The colors in the collection portray a literal interpretation of a Nebula; where all colors of the spectrum collide and are cohesive. "We wanted to incorporate your traditional fashion shades alongside pastels, marrying the two color types together - just like you would see in a nebula."

This collection features strong statement colors which add depth to the haircuts and give a multidimensional finish to the hair.
