Summer isn’t all sunshine and warm weather. If you live in Finland, that is… And recently it has been quite a bit less warm, and rainy, too.
Well, ‘I’m not made from sugar‘, to loosely translate a well-known Finnish idiom, so I won’t let a little bit (or even a lot) of rain to prevent me from going out.
I just grab an umbrella and put on some rain boots (or wellies, rubber boots, or whatever you like to call them).
I may not be made from sugar, but I resent going out in the rain as much as any woman. Yes, it’s the old ‘I don’t want my hair to get wet‘ excuse. But not the way you think. Come on, we both know I don’t really have much of a hairdo to begin with. So what could possibly make it worse?
When Professor M and I were shooting these photos, we had to act fast. That’s because I estimated that we had approximately 10-15 minutes to take the photos before my hair would totally turn on me and become a frizzy mess from hell. Like, three times its normal size, sprouting in all directions, making me look like that picture of Albert Einstein. Or worse, actually: Einstein with a perm. Or a cross between Einstein and a poodle. Or…
That’s naturally curly hair for you: a little bit of rain sucks all moisture out of it in an instant, leaving you with a dry bird’s nest on your head… And no, no amount of product will make any difference whatsoever. Let me just say that when I left home, my hair was neatly blow-dried: straight and silky. And the location for these photos is a five-minute walk from where I live…

What do you wear in the rain?
