How does one achieve the effortless mess that is French hair? I come out of the shower positive my hair will work with me today, but the frizz starts too soon and the curls are out of control – especially in these cold, windy months to come. Blowdrying damp or sleeping on wet hair leaves me looking borderline homeless. I look to Lou Doillon or Jeanne Damas, the French queens of cool hair. I need my hair to lay wavy on the side of my face, but also be able to look model-off-duty while blowing in the cold, New York wind rather than looking like a shivering poodle.
So tell me, is it the shampoo? Is it the post-shower product or serums? Or should I take the time to style it? I know these gals were born cool, but I’m not stopping at any costs if one has a secret to attain undemanding locks. So someone send help, and fast. I can sense the frizz.
