HAIR: Tina Outen for Alterna Haircare

INSPIRATION: The hair is intended to evoke a "just stepped out of the shower," natural look. It exudes an effortlessly-cool feel and perfectly complements the elegance and simplicity of the collection.


  • Prep the hair by wetting it down with a spray bottle. 
  • Pin back the hair in sections and spray Alterna Haircare Caviar Repair Multi-Vitamin Heat Protection Spray. Rake the product throughout using your fingers to create a disheveled, undone look.
  • Apply Alterna Haircare Caviar Overnight Hair Rescue from the top of the head to the roots to nourish and boost radiance.
  • Next, apply Alterna Haircare Caviar CC Cream throughout the hair to add moisture and smoothness, followed by Alterna Haircare Caviar Style Luxe Shape Gel.   
  • Gently blow dry the hair while the clips are in place to lock in the product, but still leaving it looking wet.
  • Remove the clips from each section of the hair and pull together into a loose braid at the back of the head for added texture.
  • Spray Alterna Haircare Caviar Style Sea Chic all over the braid, focusing mainly on the top to create texture and volume. Remove the braid to reveal the perfect ‘just stepped out of the shower’ hair.
  • Seal the look by spraying Alterna Haircare Caviar Omega+ Anti-Frizz Dry Oil Mist.

  • Prep the hair by creating a very defined side part.
  • Next, apply Alterna Haircare Caviar CC Cream throughout the hair and blow dry straight.
  • Apply Alterna Haircare Caviar Style Luxe Shape Gel in small sections at the roots from back of the head upwards.
  • Use Alterna Haircare Caviar Smoothing Hydra-Gelee to the sides of the hair and create a finger wave framing the face.
  • Finish the look with Alterna Haircare Caviar Omega+ Anti-Frizz Dry Oil Mist and use a flat iron to straighten the ends.
