UPTOWN/DOWNTOWN

“Individuals alter their personal style from day to night, season to season, uptown to downtown, transforming to fit the occasion. The collection embraces this transformation through cuts and hairstyles that speak to the uptown chic and downtown edge that lives within each of us.”—Michael Shaun Corby

Alterna’s 2015 collection marries the brand’s core cutting techniques with modern geometrics, creating unique, convertible looks that celebrate the differences in uptown/downtown style.
