Heather Graham’s Sexy Faux Bob At The ‘Horns” NYC Premiere

Last night, I had the pleasure of working with #gibsongirl Heather Graham for her new movie, HORNS. Heather has never worn her hair short before, so it took a bit of work to convince her to take the risk with this look. As you can see, she LOVED it and WERKED the red carpet! The key to this amazing look is a fantastic ted gibson salon blow dry that everyone from my salon associates to people who take the ted gibson advanced academy classes are taught to do. If you ever want to see how you look with shorter hair a faux bob is fun to try out!

1)   On wet hair I used Kerastase Resistance Volumactive Spray on the scalp and Kerastase Volumifiquemousse on her hair for extra body. I also sprayed L’Oreal Professionnel’s Densite in her hair to thicken and lift her hair even more.

2)   With a small boar bristle round brush I started at the nape of her neck and blow dried her hair in 2 inch sections, working my way up to the top of her head. The trick to a successful ted gibson salon blow dry is sectioning!

3)   Next, I parted her hair in a deep side part. To achieve her retro wave, I curled her entire head using a marcel curling iron. This iron allows for an even curl pattern from scalp to ends and even heat distribution, which is essential to achieve this look. I then lightly brushed her hair out to soften the wave. Brushing hair after the entire head is curled makes this hot, sexy look modern and cool.

4)   To achieve the bob, I folded her hair to just under chin, pinning with a bobby pin to the underside of her hair to hold it in place. The trick is to pin the hair horizontally on the underside. Once her entire head was pinned into the bob, I finished with L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold to hold the bob in place.

ted gibson beauty for Beauty Palooza: Atlantic City

At Beauty Palooza, my team and I presented two 90 minute shows on Monday, September 22nd to sold-out crowds. Our Erotica presentation featured eleven models showcasing latex wears by designer Tableaux Viviants and gorgeous gibson girl hair and makeup.

What I do is not just about a product – my goal is to raise the bar of this industry. It’s about education and encouraging hairdressers to know their worth. This is the platform that I work from in my salons, on photo shoots and when working with celebrities. My show Erotica relates to pop culture and what we do as hairdressers every day. We make men and women feel sexy, desired and special. Me and my artistic team are technically focused and love to bring out sex appeal.

Gugu Mbatha Raw: Beyond the Lights NYC Premiere

Tonight was an amazing time working with up and coming actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw. I worked on all of the press for Belle earlier this year and if you haven’t seen the movie, PICK IT UP, STAT!!! You will be moved by her performance and you will not be the same after.

I was thinking 20s/50s when I looked at the dress. I know, I know that doesn’t make sense but I am a beauty guru who likes to mix up decades. Those two decades are some of my favorites. I wanted her to look like a movie star and yes I did just that! Hair hair hair. I wanted to do something different for her. Movie star sexy hot and modern.

Gugu has very curly natural hair. On damp hair I used several products to give the ultimate blowout and smoothness to her hair. On damp hair I first used Leonor Greyl Eclat Naturel for smoothness, shine and heat protection. I then smoothed Leonor Greyl Mousse Au Lotus Volumatrice from mid lengths to ends for added volume.
