Check out the behind-the-scenes footage of Olympic gold medal gymnast Gabby Douglas’ photo shoot with ESSENCE.
For the photo shoot, celebrity hair stylist Ted Gibson chose to do away with Gabby’s gym-ready ponytail for long wavy locks.
Gibson, who has worked with A-list celebrities, said working with the 16-year-old gold medalist has been one of the highlights of his career.
“We’re hoping this new ‘do will finally snatch the spotlight away from Gabby’s hair and silence all the haters.”
