As we mentioned last week, makeover spectacular What Not To Wear ranks as one of our favorite “guilty pleasure” reality shows (after Unwrapped and Unwrapped: The College Years). Something about the addictive mix of snarky put-downs and stank-ass wardrobes warms the very cockles of our demonry.
Yet there has always been one small, hair-chinned bone we’ve had with WNTW, and that bone’s name is Nick Arrojo, the celebrity stylist whose job it is to take the your poor tresses, your tired ends, your masses of matted locks longing to be free, and revamp your follicles to looking their television-ready best. Nick’s work, however, missed the mark on more than one occasion. Take this lady for example:
Today, we get word that Mr. Arrojo has been let go from the position of WNTW head stylist, and has been replaced with celebrity hairtresser Ted Gibson. Mr. Gibson not only owns his own swanky salon, but he also has taken an absolutely charming photo with none other than Angelina Jolie:
Which is good enough for us! Welcome aboard to our lonely Friday night/hungover Saturday mornings, Mr. Gibson.
