With a hectic schedule jam-packed with clients, many stylists seek simplicity. Alterna Haircare offers a solution by giving artists an arsenal of power products designed to create perfect finishes.

Artist Haley Garber @beautybyhaleygarber frequently reaches for the brand’s hero products when prepping for updos.

“Alterna’s products keep the hair healthy and deliver performance during styling,” she says. “My clients trust me to use high-quality products on their hair, and they love Alterna. It’s a win-win for me.”

For Garber, knowing she can rely on quality from the brand gives her extra reassurance. She also likes to experiment with cocktailing the products together for variations of shine and frizz control.

Twisted Tresses How-To:

  1. Create three circular sections: section 1 is slightly smaller than the crown; section 2 is 1½- to 2-inches-wide from ear to ear; section 3 is all the remaining hair.
  2. Emulsify Blowout Butter and Bond Repair Serum to smooth hair sections.
  3. At the crown take a small teardrop subsection and twist, spraying with Texture Spray before expanding. Continue throughout the crown section, using slightly larger subsections, twisting to the center and down each time.
  4. Split section 2 and create two topsy tails, one over the other and mist with Texture Spray. Hide the elastic, and spray the completed sections with Working Hairspray.
  5. Brush section 3 smooth, and secure with a regular hair tie underneath the topsy tails. Work the Butter and Serum cocktail through the midlengths and ends of the ponytail for shine, softness and frizz control.
  6. Finish with a mist of Working Hairspray.
