Alterna's Equilibrium: Uptown

Alicia Liotta | July 10, 2011 | 6:14 PM
When Alterna’s Global Creative Director, Michael Shaun Corby, conceived the brand’s 2009 collection he searched the globe for inspiration. Equilibrium, Alterna’s latest collection, “is really about finding balance while celebrating diversity in life, beauty and techniques,” says Corby.  “I want to take people on a journey.”

Innovative techniques played an important role in creating the cuts for Equilibrium. “If you watch the way hairdressers work, they focus on the back of the head,” observes Corby. “I began every cut and style in this collection focusing on the front of the head.”

Uptown
The uptown look comes from Russia, it explores the place where queen meets peasant. Here, Corby uses his new five-point ponytail technique and luxurious fabrics and wefts of hair to finish.
