If you follow along with Louella Reese {aka me} via social media, you know I am currently in NYC attending fashion week! So I thought it would be fun to share a couple of ways to style your hair for the occasion {these styles would also work for a million other occasions}. All of these looks are easy and only take minutes to do! 

Along with sharing a tutorial on how to create each look, I’ll also share the products used to prepare your hair and complete the look.

There is something so chic and fierce about sleek straight hair. Therefore, it was a must when planning hairstyles to wear for NYFW.

It’s as simple as applying Caviar RepairX Multivitamin Heat Protectant Spray and straightening sections of your hair at a time. I typically pull the top half of my hair up, straighten the bottom half. Then let down the top half and straighten that. To finish off the sleek look and help keep hair healthy, apply Cavair Nourishing Oil

If you’re starting with wet hair, apply Caviar Blowout Butter. This product keeps hair smooth and soft with less frizz.

I am a HUGE fan of braids. I love the feminine vibe they provide and the fact that they get your hair away from your face, in a sweet way. 

Recently, I’ve been trying out new braided hairstyles and came up with one I thought would be perfect for attending fashion shows. This hairstyle keeps your hair out of your face but also keeps you looking chic. Like you could walk that runway! 

For this one, you’ll want to part your hair down the middle and pull half of your hair up. Start by curling the bottom half of your hair into tight curls. Then move to the top half of your hair. These curls will make your braid fuller and give you a softer look. I again used Caviar RepairX Multivitamin Heat Protectant Spray before applying the heat of my curling iron. 

Once all of your hair is curled, you’ll take the two front pieces and bobby pin them back, making sure that the part stays in place. Then start to french braid your hair right under the spot where you placed the bobby pins. Continue adding pieces of hair until you reach the base of your head. Here you’ll secure your braid with a hair tie. Pull out a few pieces around your face, to frame your face and give that softer look. Finish with Caviar Working Hairspray

Also use, Caviar Hydra-gelee for a lightweight surge of hydration to condition the hair while also smoothing unwanted frizz and providing light definition with high shine. You can use on  wet hair before air drying or heat styling, or on dry hair for instant perfection

The final look is a messy top knot. Another look I recently cannot get enough of {as seen here and here this week}. A messy top knot is also PERFECT for running around the Big Apple. This look will take you from meetings to presentations and then shopping at Bendel’s. 

To create this messy top knot, start with Caviar Perfect Texture Spray. Spraying into between layers and fluffing your hair to activate + add texture. Then pull hair into a HIGH ponytail and secure with a hair tie. From there, wrap your hair in a circle around the hair tie. Once all hair is wrapped around, tuck ends under bun and secure with bobby pins. Pull out a few pieces around your face. After all, it’s suppose to be messy! 

If you’re starting with wet hair, spray Caviar Sea Chic on damp hair from roots to ends. Blow dry with hands or diffuser to enhanced your volume and texture.

Well there you have it, three hairstyles for NYFW with Alterna Haircare. I can tell you I’ve already worn two of these hairstyles thus far and I still have two days to go. 

I also wanted to highlight a product from Alterna Haircare that I am beyond obsessed with. One I believe has kept my long hair healthy, Caviar Nourishing Oil. This oil is INCREDIBLE! I use it every single day. When I shower I place a tiny amount throughout my hair. Then days when I don’t wash my hair, I rub a little on my ends. I’ve noticed such a difference in my hair since using this product and truly could not recommend it more!
