Undone, effortless, and natural were definite buzz words and “it should look like the models did it themselves” became the it phrase backstage. Low-key everything, tousled looks, and even a little frizz became the norm across all four cities. It’s the age of “don’t care hair.” And who knew there were so many variations.
