    Altier on its own means arrogant, but in your case it's more about a posture, I suppose you could translate by "haughty head carriage". It doesn't necessarily mean the person is haughty at this precise moment, it could just be his general way to present himself. (hard to tell without the full sentence)

    Hope it helps.
