Jason Backe Interviews With Marta Walsh

When I began blogging about 5 years ago now I wanted to interview Ted Gibson of the Ted Gibson Salon. For some reason it never happened. However, to my luck, years later I managed to meet Mr Ted Gibson at his hair care product launch & Vanity Fair party in New York City. Sweet destiny. Moreover, over these years during my visits to New York Fashion Week I got to know his partner, Celebrity Colorist, and co-owner of Ted Gibson Salon Jason Backe. This duo is the Rock Stars of hair styling, coloring, and hair salon business. Few weeks ago Jason and I met in Phoenix at Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa one of my favorite places in the world where we got to catch up on life and business. I would like to share with you my Q&A slash interview with the fabulous Mr Backe.

Mane man Ted Gibson will be telling a very sexy, deliberate and Hollywood hair story via The Twilight Saga’s Ashley Greene for the Golden Globes. Predicts Gibson, “You will see effortless chic with a modern twist this year.” Gibson says that because people are feeling a lot better about the economy, the mood will be more optimistic as well as a little extravagant. 2010 hair will be all about length and a return to romance, according Gibson. “We’re finished with the asymmetrical 80s, harshness. Hair is going to be a lot softer. Women felt like they needed to be stronger in 2009 and even in fashion, we’re going to see a lot more softness in the clothes and hair in 2010.”
