ith the possible exception of a red carpet, the premiere of Beauty Changes LivesSM had many of the trappings often associated with a New York premiere. Stars from the entertainment industry, broadcast producers and members of the media gathered at the Ted Gibson Salon in Manhattan on June 8, to hear celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson announce his newest role as international spokesperson for Beauty Changes LivesSM. Nearly 150 people attended the evening reception and were among the ﬁrst to learn about Beauty Changes LivesSM. Industry publications including Modern Salon, American Salon and Mod were onsite, as well as reality television stars including Carmindy, the makeup artist on TLC’s What Not to Wear; and Mary Schmidt Amos, president of Labels of Love and cast member of The Real Housewives of Washington, D.C. Several members of the AACS board and friends of Ted Gibson also joined in the evening’s announcement.
In addition to introducing Ted Gibson as the international spokesperson for Beauty Changes LivesSM, the launch event provided attendees with an overview of the Beauty Changes LivesSM website. Several of the guests were surprised to learn about the breadth of Ted’s career in the beauty and wellness industry. “Working in this fabulous industry has allowed me to do so many different things. I’ve been a beauty school teacher, product developer, celebrity hairstylist and TV star. Who would have thought a little boy from Killeen, Texas, could travel to London and style one of the most famous women on this planet in a single day?’ Ted asked, referring to editorial covers with Angelina Jolie for Marie Claire and Cosmopolitan. Ted also spoke about the inﬂuence of his early mentors in shaping his career and how they continue to play a role in his life. Zan Ray from Austin, Texas, owned the ﬁrst salon Ted worked in and she was onsite to support him at the Beauty Changes LivesSM initiative. “Ted always had a passion for the business. I knew he was someone very special from his ﬁrst day on the job,” Zan commented.
