Products Used



Start by applying Alterna Haircare CAVIAR REPAIRx Multi-Vitamin Heat Protection Spray to damp hair. “Since Kylie’s hair is newly platinum, I had to be super careful when using hot tools to avoid any potential damage,” shares Andrew.


Then, blow-dry the hair smooth using a ghd Air® Hairdryer and Natural Bristle Radial Brush. Andrew recommends using a natural brush instead of ceramic or metal to protect from extreme heat.


Create a deep side part and prep with Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Perfect Iron Spray, then smooth out the hair using a ghd platinum Flat Iron for a sleek vibe.


To create a bun in the center-back and just above the occipital bone, start by directing all of the hair toward that area and leaving the front section out to create a dramatic swoop. Then, pull out two small pieces in front of each ear to frame the face.


Apply Paul Mitchell Hot Off The Press Hairspray to a ghd Oval Dressing Brush and smooth the hair toward the back of the head, reapplying after every couple of strokes. 


Then, secure with a bungee hair tie and twist the ponytail back onto itself clockwise. Secure the bun with hair pins and lock in the style with hairspray.


For a glassy-sheen finish, apply one coat of Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Omega+ Anti-Frizz Dry Oil Mist.
