If you tuned in to Star’s season premiere last night, then you know Ryan Destiny is set to take over the small screen as the wealthy and talented singer Alexandra Crane. Cast as the daughter of supermodel icon Naomi Campbell and ever-sexy Lenny Kravitz, we knew her her beauty game would be top notch – and she didn’t disappoint.
With a gritty and dark reality backdrop of the music scene, Ryan and her co-stars, Jude Demorest (Star) and Brittany O’Grady (Simone), shine as three singers fighting for stardom by any means necessary. And, Ryan is flawlessly gorgeous throughout with super sleek tresses (that are all her own!) and radiant skin.
We caught up with her for a quick chat to talk about her experiences, style and products to keep her tresses on point. Read on to get to know the rising star.
