Gabby Douglas handled all that ridiculous grief about her gelled-back half-ponytail like a real champ — by basically dismissing it. ("I just made history and people are focused on my hair?") But now comes the news that Ted Gibson, stylist to Anne Hathaway and Angelina Jolie, will be personally tending to the Olympian.
