The Olympics may be over, but that doesn’t mean that the Team USA gymnasts have been forgotten–especially the girl with the megawatt smile, Gabby Douglas. We heard last week that Douglas was being shot for Essence and that celeb hair stylist Ted Gibson was going to start tending to the Olympian’s controversial locks. And now we have a look at the results.
Essence shot Gabby and her family for the October and November issue, and Gibson was on hand to style her hair for the shoot. Gibson–who has touched the head of no less a star than Angelina Jolie, mind you–said of the experience, “Doing her hair was one of the highlights of my career.” He goes on to say that he loved watching her “sparkle” and “touch her hair.” Ted Gibson honestly seems like the nicest man ever.
