French hairstylist to the stars (seriously...Mélanie Laurent, Diane Kruger) Frédéric Birault passed through NYC recently and worked some magic in Washington Square Park aka my new favorite salon. I'd have never thought to make "macarons" with bobby pins, but Fred took one look at the Bumble pin tin and set to work twisting and twirling sections (with a bit of Sumotech) into a coiffure that could best be described as "Björk on a day off." In keeping with the food theme, we enjoyed McDonald's Happy Meals along the way. Ladurée was too far uptown.
I'm also a humongous fan of Fred's blog Cut by Fred, now translated into English.
