There aren't many people who can pull off a one-word name -- especially a name that's so often mispronounced. But in the hairstyling world, Oribe (or-bay) does it well. His name first started appearing in the 1980s, and he is often credited with putting runway hair on the map. Basically, no one cared about the hair in fashion shows -- until Oribe's hair masterpiece at a 1992 Chanel presentation.
Oribe's signature style is big hair, which made the period of flat, sleek hair in the '90s especially challenging for him. He made a comeback, however, with the help of Jennifer Lopez -- and the bouffant he gave her for the 2002 Oscars. "I do have a signature -- it's always a little exaggerated," says Oribe. "In my salons, there's a luster to the hair, a sexuality, and a fullness -- most people think I just do big hair, but it's touchable and glamorous."
Oribe has a salon in Miami and an eponymous line of high-end products.
