After seven years as the hair expert on TLC's 'What Not to Wear', hairstylist Nick Arrojo will be replaced by Ted Gibson in an effort to freshen up the makeover reality show. Gibson has already taped five shows, which will begin airing July 24.
Gibson - who has worked with Anne Hathaway, Renee Zellweger, Chanel and Prada - explained he had been looking forward to playing hair saviour for the fashion-challenged. "My role is to make the girls feel pretty, to change their hair from being drab to being beautiful and sexy," he said.
However, Gibson didn't expect his first makeover subject to have such a strong reaction. Stacy London, who serves on the show as a style expert with Clinton Kelly, had to cheer him up. According to London: "I don't think he was expecting the reaction he got at the first makeover. I sent him an email explaining the psychology of it all, that people become attached to their identity and you're not criticizing them but the image they are projecting."
Resident makeup artist Carmindy will remain on the show, along with London and Kelly.
