An Emmy How-To: Julia Louis-Dreyfus

Alterna & Celebrity hairstylist Daniel Howell created Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ award-winning look at the 64th Annual Emmy Awards.

Hair Prep:

Begin by washing hair using Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner. It’s important to use products specifically designed for colored treated hair to lock in moisture.

Towel dry hair and spray generously with new Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Styling Prep; comb product through using a wide-tooth comb.

Rough dry with fingertips and a diffuser attachment in an upward motion to create lots of volume from the scalp.

Hair Style:

Begin at the nape & divide hair into 2” sections. Spray with Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Perfect Iron Spray; this will lock in moisture but block out humidity (which is the enemy of keeping a style)

Using a ¾” curling iron, wrap sections around the iron keeping it an inch from the scalp. Hold for 30 seconds. Continue until all hair is curled.

Smooth a dime-sized amount of Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Ultra Sleek Polishing Serum through the ends of the hair to eliminate flyaways.

Create a deep center part, and pull hair into a low, loose ponytail. Twist and wrap pony into a loose knot and secure with small bobby pins.

Finishing Touches: “To ensure the style holds, mist with Alterna Caviar Extra Hold Hair Spray in long feathery strokes.
