Quick Demo of Alterna's 1-Night Highlights

By Alison Alhamed | 02/06/2012 3:14:00 PM


Alterna recently launched its 1-Night Highlights temporary color mousse and I got the chance to demo it on some of my willing co-workers! Scroll down for the quick video I made for you to see how it works.

Step one: Pick the color you wish to use. Shimmering Blonde, Ravishing Red or Sweet Caramel.
Step two: Attach the comb to the bottle.
Step three: Give the bottle a few shakes.
Step four: Squeeze the mousse through the bristles.
Step five: Comb the mousse through the section (Tip: Detangle the hair first!)
Step six: Let the product dry, then brush out the excess mousse.
Step seven: Show off your new highlights!

I had so much fun putting the highlights on my coworkers. Debbie found the Ravishing Red was great for camoflauging her gray outgrowth, Lauren, pictured here, loved the color as a fun way to add some punch to her Level 3 brunette hair, and my mannequin (in the video) unfortunatly looks like Frankenstein hair with all the highlights I put on her. BUT, what a great way to introduce color to a fearful client! Or, as a way to see if she can pull off ombre highlights or red peek-a-boos!
