Leighton Meester, otherwise known as Blair Waldorf, and her gorgeous head of hair have signed on to become the Global Ambassador for Herbal Essences. As part of the endorsement deal, Leighton will appear in print and web ads, plus the Herbal Essences Facebook page. The biggest revelation from this announcement is that Leighton's hair is naturally stick straight!
