NOT! We were so super-excited last night to while away the evening with celebrity stylist Ted Gibson (he styles hair for Angelina Jolie, Tina Fey, Kerry Washington and Anne Hathaway, just to name a few) and other Total Beauty bloggers.
Ted is a giant teddy bear and about the nicest guy you could ever hope to meet. We had an open and honest discussion about his business, his goals and even his childhood (the uberstylist was a linebacker in high school in Texas. How very Friday Night Lights--oh, and he just styled Mink Kelly's hair for an In Style shoot.)
We love Ted for a few reasons:
1. He says he "was put here on earth to make women feel really beautiful!"
2. His products are for woman with all hair types, because, "I'll be working with Joy (Bryant) one day and Annie (Hathaway) the next. I need a product that will work on all hair types." For us, this means we can use the same product in humid Miami as in dry Vegas.
3. Speaking of travel, his Hair Styling Sheets are a traveler's best friend. They're literally individually wrapped sheets so there's no risk of getting sticky gel all over your Jimmy's!
