Gabby Douglas New Hairstylist Is the Amazing Celebrity Hairstylist Ted Gibson!

Oh how I love Gabby Douglas!!! A young teenage girl winning gold medals at the 2012 Olympics, breaking records and inspiring women, men and children all across the world.  But of course people wanted to focus on her hair for whatever reason that made no sense. Anyway, she will be getting her hair done by celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson! He has done hair for Gabrielle Union, Angelina Jolie, Anne Hathaway, to name a few. His work has been seen in Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan and Allure.  And now he will be adding the lovely Gabby to his clientele! (thedailybeast)

Getting you hair done by Mr. Ted Gibson could set you back at least $1000! But that's nothing to the teenage millionaire Gabby Douglas!! (You mad?) Here's a quote from Ted Gibson:

“You have this young girl doing amazing things, and the conversation becomes about her hair? It was ridiculous and shameful,” Gibson told the Beast. “I hope we can create something that’s easy and looks great no matter what she’s doing or where she is. I hope to create something that makes her feel good about herself as well.” 

I know he is going to hook her up! She was already beautiful and I know he will give her something that fits her face and give all the naysayers something else to talk about. Gabby is in good hands because this man has crazy skills! Now runteldat!! Luv you Gabby and Ted!
