INSPIRATION: This look comes from a 70’s disco reference in the collection. To create a feeling of playfulness, I worked with the idea that our girl may have woken up from a Studio 54-esque party the night before. The remnants of curls with a cool, lived-in casualness creates a modern inconsistency in the texture.

GET THE LOOK
STEP 1: Take a deep side party on the right hand side where the recession is using a straight yet natural part line (avoid an overly clean line).
STEP 2:If necessary, depending on the natural texture of the hair, apply a layer of the Alterna Haircare Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Milk Leave-In Conditioner or the Alterna Haircare Caviar CC Cream to provide extra moisture before styling.
STEP 3: Slightly mist the hair with water. Start from the nape area, apply Alterna Haircare Bamboo Volume Weightless Whipped Mousse section by section from roots to ends and comb through, away from the face using a wide tooth comb.
STEP 4:Blow dry the hair using fingers only, applying tension to the roots and directing hair away from the face. Once the hair is dry, brush through using a Mason Pearson brush to prepare it.
STEP 5: Starting from the nape, take a section (1 inch high and 3 inches thick) and spritz with the Alterna Haircare Caviar Style Invisible Roller Contour Setting Spray. Use a flat iron to create a nice S movement in the hair, leaving the ends naturally straight. Work your way up the head. Once you are below the crown, use a curling iron instead to have an element of inconsistency in the texture to create an even more natural end result.
STEP 6: Using a small curling iron, take 5/6 small random sections across the hairline to create some small ringlets.
STEP 7: Starting from behind the ear, working towards the crown, take 1 inch thick section and apply a small amount of Alterna Haircare Caviar Style Concrete Extreme Definition Clay on the roots to create a “lived-in” feeling.
STEP 8: To finish the look, break apart and pull out some of the ringlets created around the hair line and add 2/3 random ringlet sections in the back to marry the two looks together.
STEP 9: Mist the hair with the Alterna Haircare Caviar Anti-Aging Omega+ Anti-Frizz Dry Oil Mist to give the look a polished finish. Seal the look with the Alterna Haircare Caviar Anti-Aging Extra Hold Hair Spray.
