You can call it stalking if you’d like, but we like to call it being besties. We showed up to, yet another, Ted Gibson class and quietly took our seats in the back, but we really wanted to be front and center for all the action. With the Tedster (don’t call him that) on the West Coast, we had to get as much quality time in with him as possible.
Kitty is the Director of Color Education for Ted Gibson Beauty, and kept smacking us in the face with pearls of wisdom during her color demo. Sometimes breaking it back down to the basics can help you create the most complex looks.
We love when Jason is in the room to chime in a the right moment to make us laugh or reinforce the technique being taught. We feel he can spot the confused looks in the crowd and answer any questions you had before you realized you even had them.
It was time for Ted to work his magic, and magic it was. We love that he takes the foundation techniques of a hot set and reinforces them. You can’t do the advanced things if you don’t have a solid understanding of your foundation.
