What is a Renaissance Man? One definition would be a person whose expertise spans a number of different subject areas. As an example, a person who is an author, musician, model, playwright, songwriter, actor, and screenwriter. Since few people can claim such a wide array of accomplishments throughout an entire career… I would consider my above example as defining a bonafide Renaissance Man (or in this case woman). I have the pleasure of knowing such a person… Krysten Ritter!
When ZINK magazine called a few months ago asking me to work on their Cover Shoot featuring Krysten Ritter, I jumped at the opportunity to work with such a talented and rising star.
For such a young age, Krysten Ritter has compiled an impressive body of work that encompasses film, television and music… and she gives you the sense that she is only getting started. Krysten’s career began when she was discovered at the age of 15 by a model scouting agent in a local shopping mall in Shicknshinny, PA. It wasn’t long before it became clear to casting agents that her outgoing, bubbly and naturally hysterical personality would make for an easy transition from modeling to acting.
A recent accolade for Krysten was her critically acclaimed season on AMC’s award winning series television drama/comedy Breaking Bad. Additionally, she has appeared in the films Confessions of a Shopaholic (2009), What Happens in Vegas (2008), 27 Dresses and had recurring roles in the television series Gilmore Girls, Veronica Mars, and ‘Til Death. She was featured in “Valley Girls”, an episode of The CW series Gossip Girl. In 2010, she appeared in the romantic comedy She’s Out of My League and the television series Gravity. And if that isn’t enough, Krysten co-wrote and stared in the independent comedy BFF & Baby. She also composed and performed music for the film.
Next on Krysten’s list of accomplishments is a return to TV in ABC’s Apartment 23.
SerafinoSays shares how to achieve Krysten’s look:
1. Begin by applying a dollop of Nexxus Mousse Plus Volumizing Foam Styler to wet hair. Always apply products starting from the back of your head, and begin the application at the mid-shaft of your hair to the ends. Then apply the remaining product in your hand to the front of your head. This will eliminate over use of product around the face causing hair to be limp or weighed down.
2. Blast your hair about 80% dry using the Salon Tech ionic turbo 3300 blow dryer. Complete the drying process by smoothing your hair with a round brush. Note: Since Step 3 requires the use of a flat iron that will further help to smooth the cuticle, it is not as critical to have the perfectly smooth hair after the blow dry.
3. To create volume at the root, begin by using your Kiss Silicone Protexion Flat Iron. Place the iron at root of the hair then rotate the iron 180 degrees (this should look like you are writing an upside down U). As the iron glides down the hair, flip your iron upward at the ends to create a kicky, flippy texture. To create a more natural look, leave some of the ends straight and randomly flip others.
4. To enhance the texture, finish with a blast of Kaaral Pink Up Spray Gloss. One of my favorite applications of spray shine is to hold your arm straight with the blow dryer (nozzle off), squirt the spray gloss directly into the airflow of the dryer. The movement of hair from the dryer will cause the spray gloss to be distributed through the interior of the hair and not just this outer layer. This will create incredible texture, shine and add a new dimension to your hair cut.
