If your Halloween costume involves retro waves — think Elizabeth Taylor or Marilyn Monroe — I have a hair tutorial for you!
Katie Holmes, 36, looked retro chic on Oct. 22 at the Fashion Group International’s Annual Night of Stars at Cipriani Wall Street in New York. Her hair is amazing for a ’50s inspired costume or a real life party look. Get the exact tutorial below.
Katie is an Alterna Haircare Global Brand Ambassador. Get the complete breakdown from her stylist DJ Quintero here.
“1.) To thoroughly hydrate the hair, DJ Quintero used Alterna Haircare Moisture Intense Oil Crème Pre-Shampoo Treatment, before shampooing with Alterna Haircare Moisture Intense Oil Crème Shampoo and deep conditioner.
2.) On damp hair, he sprayed a liberal amount of Alterna Haircare Bamboo Volume 48-Hour Sustainable Volume Spray from root to tip.
3.) Also on damp hair, he mixed in a dime-size amount of Alterna Haircare Bamboo Smooth Anti-Frizz Curl-Defining Cream to accentuate and refine Katie’s natural curls.
4.) DJ used a diffuser to rough dry hair and add body.
5.) Once hair was dry, he used a 1” Harry Josh curling iron to add definition.
6.) DJ created a deep side part and clipped the front one side of Katie’s hair back, securing it with a large bobby pin behind her ear.
7.) He sprayed a liberal amount of Alterna Haircare Caviar Anti-Aging Working Hair Spray to hold the style without adding stickiness or rigidity.
8.) For shine, DJ added Alterna Haircare Bamboo Luminous Shine Mist.”
