Celebrity Hairstylist Ted Gibson and Bellus Academy Align for Two California Beauty Events

Bellus Academy is teaming up with celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson to explore the fusion of fashion and beauty at “Beauty Behind the Fashion” on Thursday, October 1, at 6:00 p.m. at the elegant Valencia Hotel in La Jolla. The evening of fashion and beauty will be followed by a special “professionals only” ted gibson advanced academy held at Bellus Academy in Poway, on Friday, October 2.

Fresh off the runways of New York Fashion Week, Gibson will be joined by Bellus Academy alumni now serving as members of Wella’s elite team, as well as students currently enrolled in the school’s hair, makeup and nail programs, to showcase spring 2016 beauty trends. “This event provides a wonderful opportunity for the public to preview trends and also see the collaboration that takes place between fashion designers and the hairstylists, makeup artists and nail designers who prepare models for runways and editorial shoots,” said Lynelle Lynch, owner and president of Bellus Academy.

Gibson and select members of his team present a limited number of Ted Gibson Advanced Academy experiences each year. The October 2 event is the first Ted Gibson Advanced Academy to be held in San Diego County.  Participants will learn about celebrity influences on hair design as well as emerging hair trends for 2016. “Licensed hairstylists will learn how runway trends can be interpreted into real world looks,” said Gibson.

Bellus Academy will offer two advanced program options including a morning presentation and a full-day program that provides participants with a hands-on learning experience using their own tools and live models provided by Bellus Academy.  The school reached out to Gibson because of his commitment to education and his years of experience working with celebrities and fashion designers. “Ted appreciates the symbiotic relationship that exists between fashion and beauty,” said Lynch, who has collaborated with Gibson on other initiatives to raise awareness of professional beauty education.
