Ted Gibson: Telling America What Not to Hair

July 29, 2009 • Beauty


I love TLC'S 'What Not to Wear.' I love Ted Gibson. And so when Ted Gibson debuted as the show's hair guru on Friday, it was clear that these were two great tastes that go great together.

Thursday, Ted hosted a small soiree at his fabulous Chelsea studio to celebrate his new gig. In addition to getting to see Ted (who is one of the most wonderful style celebs I've ever met), I had the privilege of meeting his partner and the salon's expert colorist, Jason Backe (who is every bit as charming, kind and funny as Ted), along with What Not to Wear's producer, who graciously endured my shameless gushing.

Now that the man responsible for styling the likes of Angelina Jolie, Keira Knightly and Anne Hathaway is taking on Minnesota soccer moms and aging valley girls (perhaps a bigger challenge?), I'm considering spending the next three months in sweatpants in the hopes that someone will nominate me for the show.
