STEP 5: Alterna
Caviar Style Grit
Once styled, product separates and sculpts layers for movement and form and keeps hair firmly in place without that hard or crunchy feeling of excess product.
STEP 6: Alterna
Caviar Style Perfect Texture Finishing Spray
Adds dimensional texture and forms a structure to keep strands individual and from clumping together. This product also lifts styled hair allowing it to present a full look.
STEP 7: KOPARI
Organic Coconut Melt
Coconut Melt is the overall overachiever product. Though widely used in skincare, the Melt has a heroine ability to tame flyaways and smooth out hair around the face that has a bit of frizz at the ends. Used as the last style step to a smooth finish.
100% organic, vegan, phthalate-free, cruelty-free & GMO-free.
STEP 8: KOPARI
Coconut Face Cream
Since I’m speaking of this seductive brand, I want to mention an added go-to product when prepping for the night out. The Coconut Face Cream is soothing and protective moisturizer that restores the skin back to that soft and supple look and feel. For your hair to look fabulous, your face needs to feel it too!
Rich in high concentrations of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants with a natural vanilla fragrance.
Cruelty-free, paraben-free, silicone-free, phthalate-free & non-GMO.

STEP 9: VIKTOR & ROLF
The final step before you are party perfect, try a sultry trick not widely known. Spritz a dab of your favorite sweet smell such as FLOWERBOMB to the left and right side of your hair. This will create a guaranteed lasting scent all night long. A perfect way to spread a little sweet cheer to those you greet!

STEP 10: TIGI
Bed Head Urban Antidotes Resurrection Treatment Mask
Once the night is finally over and you wake up the next day desperately desiring coffee and a much-needed recovery from the night’s adventure, don’t forget to treat your tresses. They’ve held their own and had you looking and feeling fabulous all night, now it’s time for some TLC. Resurrection will give your hair a night off and chance to relax by restructuring damaged proteins inside the hair caused by heat and styling, leaving it refreshed and revived.
