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.

Remember, Beauty Is Individual.

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.

Ariana Grande For Marie Claire’s October Issue

This is the second time that I’ve had the opportunity to work with Ariana – 2 covers in 1 year with THE IT girl of music! I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity! The thing about Ariana is that she loves the 60s, and when I think about that time period I think about many icons — from Raquel Welch to Jane Fonda to Brigit Bardot.

I used Leonor Greyl Eclat Naturel; Leonor Greyl Mousse Au Lotus Volumatrice; Leanor Greyl Laque Souple to create this look. Here are the steps:

1) I started off with a really good blow dry using Leonor Greyl Eclat Naturel for smoothness, shine and to protect Ariana’s hair from heat at the roots.
2) I then smoothed Leonor Greyl Mousse Au Lotus Volumatrice from mid lengths to ends for added volume.
3) I blew her hair dry with a flat Mason Pearson brush to create more smoothness and even more shine.
4) After the blow-dry, I flat ironed her hair taking 1 ½ inch sections.
5) Next I sectioned her hair from the top of the ear to the other to create her signature half up, half down top ponytail. I pulled everything to the crown of her head and using bungee elastic I secured the ponytail.
6) I then finished with Leanor Greyl Laque Souple on her ends to give texture and movement.

What do you think?
