It seems as if the top talent is in NYC. Whether it be singers on Broadway to fashion to businessmen – it is safe to say that this city is home to the best of the best.
After months of using hotel shampoo and island sunshine, I was due for a hair fix. When I was in New York, I found Kitty Greller. She is the Color Director at Ted Gibson Salon, which simply shows she IS the best.
Kitty has an impressive resume of clients, as she has been coloring hair for over a decade in NYC. She has worked with many celebrities, including Lady Gaga and Ke$ha. Her work is also seen on the runways of New York Fashion Week.
I put her skills to the test (even though we knew she would kill it), as I asked her to completely transform my color. Thanks to Kitty, I went from a dark blonde ombre to an ice queen.
Kitty took on the challenge and entertained me with funny stories the whole time. Kitty is the type of person where you meet as strangers, but by the time you leave you feel as if you’ve been friends forever.
Not only did Kitty give me exactly what I wanted, but the entire Ted Gibson team went above and beyond to make me feel at home. From hand massages to delicious coffee to endless compliments, I was spoiled the entire time. I also want to give a special shout out to Danko for cleaning up my ends and styling my hair to perfection!
I even got to see Ted Gibson work his magic and create a beautiful cut for one of his clients.
The salon also had one of my favorite features of the entire trip: a selfie light. I made sure to end our appointment with a mini photo shoot and have been on the hunt for our own ever since – I was obsessed.
Thank you, Kitty and the rest of the Ted Gibson team! I can’t wait to come back to visit when I am back in the city!
