Didier is full of wisdom. And if his plea for wild hair didn't already convince you, set down the hot tools and step away from the hairspray. Humidity and moisture are a lot less scary when you decide you're going to work with them, rather than against them.
While it's not necessarily wearable in the traditional sense, consider the above (demonstrated on Katrin Thormann) as an homage to the truly horrendous weather New York (and the rest of the country) is experiencing at the moment. It's messy-yet-architectural, wet-yet-wispy, and certainly more theory than technique.
“It’s rainy day hair. This is how she looks when she’s running to take the subway,” Didier said. “She went to a very fancy hair dresser on Madison Avenue to get ready for a big event, and suddenly, the rain came. This is what’s left of her.”
Leaving your umbrella at home: model tested; Didier approved.
