We love Krysten Ritter‘s short bangs, but sporting a similar cut in the summer humidity often seems like a pipe dream. That’s why we caught up with the actress to find out the secret to her pitch-perfect style. “I came out of the womb with bangs! I’m like a professional,” the fringe veteran joked. “Even if you don’t blow-dry the rest of your hair, you have to blow-dry your bangs, and you need a really good brush. I use a vent brush.” Our favorite option? Goody’s Vented Gel Brush ($7; target.com). The cushioned grip makes for a more comfortable blowout, and the ionic bristles keep frizz at bay.
