Beauty News: Kate Gosselin’s 20 Hour Makeover With Ted Gibson…

kate-gosselin-300x400Somebody finally got a hold of that hair!!  Thank goodness it was Ted….he worked his magic and transformed the most talked about hairstyle (and not in a good way) into something gorgeous.  She will be able to grow it out this way without all the craziness of the in-between hair.  “Kate was an absolute sweetheart, I loved her,” says Gibson, who is a celeb stylist for the likes of Angelina Jolie & Anne Hathaway.  He also appears on the TLC show What Not To Wear and owns two namesake salons in NYC & DC.

To help achieve Kate Gosselin’s new look, Ted turned to Great Lengths 100% Human Hair Extensions. Transforming Kate’s shorter infamous do to long locks was no easy endeavor, taking 20 hours and hundreds of keratin bonded Great Lengths Extensions.  However, once Kate revealed her new longer do, she loved it. Ted reveals, “using Great Lengths Extensions you are able to take hair from being ordinary to extraordinary!

Creating this look was not without it’s challenges.  Ted knew that transforming the look that launched a thousand Halloween wigs would be a challenge, Gibson reveals it was the spiky hair in the back of Kate’s do that proved most daunting. “Bonding extensions to those little hairs really took time. But in all those hours, she didn’t complain once. She was so open to whatever I suggested, and willing to try just about anything.” Well, almost anything: At first, Gibson reports, Kate was reluctant to let go of the thick, jaw-length shock of hair in the front of her face in favor of bangs. “She wasn’t sure about bangs,” says Gibson, “But I find many women have that one thing they’re afraid to let go of, that one ‘security blanket’ part of their look, whether it’s a fear of going shorter or darker or something. But once they finally let go and embrace the change, they always love it.
