ghd has announced the appointment of celebrity stylist David Babaii as the new brand ambassador for ghd North America. One of the most sought after stylists in Hollywood, Babaii, whose work has appeared on runways, ad campaigns, and has graced the covers of Elle, Vogue, and Vanity Fair among others, is the latest hairdressing heavyweight to join ghd as a brand ambassador.
During his more than 12 years in the salon industry, Babaii has styled some of the biggest names in Hollywood, including Angelina Jolie, Kate Hudson, Jennifer Lawrence, Sarah Jessica Parker, and longtime friend Gwyneth Paltrow.
"Over the span of my career, I have been asked to partner with a multitude of hair tool brands but none have met the quality or performance standard that I was looking for. With ghd, I have found the perfect fit,” says Babaii.
Francesca Raminella, President of ghd North America is also excited for Babaii’s appointment to brand ambassador, and what this means for the brand.
“David is one of Hollywood’s and hairdressing’s most talented, loved and admired stylists, so we’re thrilled that he’s going to be working with us all at ghd,” commented Raminella. “His enormous enthusiasm and passion for ghd is matched by his brilliant creativity. We can’t wait to start working with David as our first-ever North American brand ambassador, offering on-trend styling tips and expert advice to our customers, as well as launching some very exciting projects later in 2014.”
Babaii joins an esteemed line-up of global stylists working with ghd that includes Sam McKnight, Kenna, Zoe Irwin and Jayne Wild, and the newly appointed global brand ambassador, Adam Reed, in London.
