Demure in @Dior. Leighton Meester for Story + Rain.
In the little down time she has from shooting her series about nine months out of the year, Leighton Meester’s also carving out a space for another of her passions: her music. She’s written an album and is recording it—her first since her folksy 2014 release Heartstrings, of breathy, dreamy songs—with hopes of releasing new tracks in the next year. Read more of our latest cover story.
Since Gossip Girl permeated the zeitgeist, ending just seven years ago, the landscape of television has changed radically, a fact of which Meester is quite aware. As such, she’s all the more grateful for the opportunity to work in network TV. “From my point of view, it’s amazing creatively,” Meester says. The Single Parents team of producers, cast, and crew “have been doing this a long time, and have fresh ideas and are very collaborative. You don’t have to conform to the old formula of network TV."
S E R I E S: treat your scalp & hair like your skin
Hair originates beneath the skin from the hair follicle, which is located in the dermis and contains stem cells, which are responsible for regrowing hair after it falls out.
Hair growth begins inside the hair follicle, and it is the only “living” part of the hair. The part of the hair that resides in the follicle is called the hair root and the root contains the cells from which hair grows. The hair follicle also contains the oil producing sebaceous glands and muscles that cause the hairs to stand up. The visible part of the hair is called the shaft and it is considered a “dead” anatomical structure.
The principles of care for scalp & hair and skin are identical yet the actual care is worlds apart. There can be no long term healthy, full hair without bridging this gap first. Treat your hair with the same antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, antimicrobials and nutrients as you would any other cell of your body. That is precisely how our products are formulated: to integrate with your cells and optimize their function from within.
