Celebrity hair stylist Ted Gibson was named spokesperson for
"Beauty Changes Lives," a new initiative by The American Association of
Cosmetology Schools (AACS) at the Ted Gibson Salon in Union Square, NYC
yesterday. The program is focused on raising awareness of the rewards
and opportunities offered by beauty and wellness centers.
Gibson has joined the new campaign to help educate consumers about the
myriad opportunities in the beauty and wellness industries. "Who would
have thought as a beauty school graduate I'd be able to travel the
world, work with A-list celebrities, open salons and mentor the next
generation of hair dressers," says Gibson. "My career has allowed me to
fulfill my dreams and build a beauty empire."
In their new roles, the trio will be responsible for maintaining the company’s high standards of professional training, and will play a key role in crafting Matrix trends and imagery for professionals and consumers.
