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.

Kate Hudson stunned in her latest ad campaign for New York & Company.  Celebrity hairdresser David Babaii created her micro-textured look.  “I call this her Blondie meets Jetsons Bob, a great A-symmetrical bob that is a perfect look post baby and post her short hair.”  How did Babaii help Hudson get the los?

David started began with his luxurious n:p beautiful Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner. “Hydration is critical for many women after having a baby to replenish and renew their strands.” Next, he applied a small amount of Miracle Serum followed by  Volumizing Spray.  After all, “What woman doesn’t love fullness?” he asks.  To style, Babaii blew Hudson’s hair out, using his hands to create “micro-texture,” a combination of tiny waves, texture and picey strands made by twisting, pinching and roughing mini sections with his fingers.  To complete the look, he  sprayed with Beach Spray on one-inch sections and loosely wrapped these pieces around three fingers to create a large loop.  “The key to this step is to take random sections of hair to make the mico-texture pop,” he explains, as he pressed the n:p beautiful Vibrating Flat Iron around each circle, scrunching it in his hands as it cooled to  further enhance the mico-texture.
