Fashion week is over, but the style lives on. This year, Alterna’s Global Creative Director Michael Shaun Corby created modern-day beehives for fashion designer Kevan Hall at LA Fashion Week. “Kevan Hall’s shows always bring a touch of old Hollywood glamour to the runway, and he generously selected Alterna to help complete his artistic vision,” says Corby. “Alterna was thrilled to partner with the couture designer to give this year’s show dynamic hair that match the quality of his show-stopping designs.”

1. Work volume-enhancing mousse, such as Alterna’s Life Solutions Volumizing Spray Mousse, into damp hair from root to tips. Blow dry hair straight with a round brush. Backcomb the hair to achieve tons of volume and height on the top of the head.

3. Secure the hair into a bun in the back of the head with pins. Smooth the top layer of the hair to gently shape the look, combing hair over the bun and securing with a pin, to give a smooth beehive style.

4. Finish with a flexible hair spray, like Alterna’s CAVIAR Working Hair Spray, and shine spray, like HEMP with Organics Spray Shine, for intense shine.
