Cuban-born hairdresser, Oribe Canales has died at 62. The legendary stylist, known professionally as Oribe, touched the locks of countless Hollywood stars from Jennifer Lopez (above), Scarlett Johansson, Cher, and Kate Hudson, to Miley Cyrus, Penelope Cruz, and Meghan Markle.  He helped define the 1990s with the gravity-defying looks worn on the runway and on countless covers by Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss, Christy Turlington, and Linda Evangelista.  His editorial affinity continued with subsequent generations of models, counting Gisele Bundchen, Bella Hadid, Heidi Klum, Adriana Lima, and Emily Ratajkowski among his devotees.  The salon-owner developed an eponymous styling line in 2008, which quickly developed a cult-like following.

Posting on Instagram, Lopez shared, “When I was 16 I was fascinated with Vogue magazine I would ride on the train and look at all the images of the supermodels and I was obsessed with the hair!! When I saw an image I loved I would check who did it and it was always someone named Oribe… Wow… he’s amazing I would think!! Cut to years later I was making my first album. I started working with Benny Medina and he said to me we have to do an album cover shoot who do you want for hair and makeup… honestly I was so new to the industry I knew no one and remembered my time flipping thru those magazines on the 6 and said ummm Oribe and Kevin Aucoin… ”  For the next ten years she spent “every walking and working moment” with Oribe by her side.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lindsey Vonn, Le Bron James, and Cindy Crawford have partnered on a direct-to-consumer health and wellness line, Ladder.  Inspired and designed by its founders and their advisors in fitness, nutrition, and health, Ladder’s nutritional products will include four essential formulas:  whey and plant proteins (available in chocolate and vanilla), energy (in strawberry lemonade), and greens.  Each product is NSF Certified for sport, free of toxins, contaminants, and banned substances.

The brand is different from most celebrity-endorsed lines, as the four partners have been intimately involved since its inception, beginning with James and Schwarzenneger.  “It’s an organically developed company,” Mr. Schwarzenegger said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, versus “a company coming to us and saying, ‘We’ll give you some stock if we can use your name.’ That’s what I’ve done in the past, but I didn’t have the control. That’s why I got out of the deals.”

Advisors to Ladder include athletic trainer, Mike Mancias, of the Los Angeles Lakers, health journalist, Adam Bornstein, chef and food author, Candice Kumai, and nutritional advisor Dr. Abbie Smith-Ryan, Director of Applied Physiology and Human Performance at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill.

Ladder subscriptions range between $60-90 per month.
