The International Beauty Show at the Javits Center was flooded yesterday due to a freak rain-related accident. According to the New York Post, workers doing an on-stage hair-styling demonstration for Rusk beauty products were drenched when a tarp covering a hole in the roof gave way. The brief deluge didn't stop the show, though; it runs through tonight. [NYP]
