I received Alterna Hair Products in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
Spotted posing with Minnie Mouse at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Alterna Hair Care Co-owner Katie Holms sports her new spring hair style. Holms’ new hairdo is all about loose locks and fringed bangs. Want to recreate Katie Holms’ new fashionable spring look? Alterna Hair Global Care Creative Director Michael Sean Corby has provided awesome styling tips that will take your spring look from drab to fab.
Prep: Michael suggests starting to style your bangs as soon as you get out of the shower. You will want to apply a small amount of serum or cream that won’t detract from your hair’s volume. For such products, try Alterna Cavier: Omega[+] Nourishing Oil or Alterna Hair Care CC Cream ($38).
Style: To protect your hair from styling heat, spritz your hair with Alterna Hair Care Anti-Aging Perfect Iron Spray ($28). While bangs are still wet, blow dry them for 3-5 seconds to avoid bangs from sticking to your face. After this, use a round brush that is large enough for your bangs to fit half way around the brush. Flat iron the ends of your bangs to create the fringed look. To lock your stylish bangs in place, use Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Working Hair Spray ($26).
Tips: Dry bangs before drying the rest of your hair; if you save bangs until last, the around your face will cause your hair to dry funny. To avoid hair separation, don’t apply serum or oils to the end of bangs.
I love sporting the “blunt bang” look. Because I use heat to style my bangs on a regular basis, I love using Alterna’s CC Cream to help protect my hair from breaking and keep my hair shining. Applying a small amount of this cream provides the perfect amount of shine without making my bangs appear greasy. After styling my bangs, Alterna’s Anti-Aging Working Hair Spray holds my bangs perfectly in place for the rest of the day. What great products to help me achieve a fun spring hairdo.
