Like he doesn't have enough going on? The American Association of Cosmetology Schools (AACS) announced Tuesday night it has partnered with celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson to launch “Beauty Changes Lives”…and Second City Style was there.
“Beauty Changes Lives,” is a new initiative focused on raising awareness of the rewards and opportunities offered by beauty and wellness careers. The newly launced website beautychangeslives.org, provides career information, profiles of iconic personalities in the hair, beauty and wellness industry, and information on education and scholarship opportunities. Ted Gibson's role is to help educate consumers about the myriad opportunities in the beauty and wellness industries.
“Who would have thought as a beauty school graduate I’d be able to travel the world, work with A-list celebrities, open salons and mentor the next generation of hair dressers. My career has allowed me to fulfill my dreams and build a beauty empire, ” said Ted Gibson.
AACS executive director Jim Cox noted that Ted was a natural partner for AACS as it seeks to build awareness of careers in the hair, beauty and wellness industry. “Ted’s passion for the business, his charismatic and genuine personality and his desire to give back to the beauty industry made him a perfect spokesperson for the Beauty Changes Lives initiative,” Cox noted.
Ted’s relationship with AACS began in 2009, when he spoke at AACS’ inaugural Beauty Changes Lives event in Phoenix. As the keynote speaker, Ted shared how careers in beauty have helped him travel the globe, achieve financial and professional success, and most importantly, make every client feel fabulous and realize that beauty is individual. “
