Oribe

Hair Stylist

biography

Nationality: United States
Oribe (pronounced OR-bay) Canales, grew up in
North Carolina, United States. His career took off in
the mid 80's. Oribe has been one of the most
sought after hairstylists for fashion, editorial and
advertising work for the last 30 years. His
collaborators include countless photographers, like
Bill King, who introduced him
to the fashion editor Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, a
co-conspirator during his Steven Meisel years.
There was the meticulous Irving Penn, who Oribe
still refers to as Mr. Penn; and Helmut Newton, who
shot Cindy Crawford for American Vogue with hair
that Oribe teased to infinity; and others like Richard
Avedon, Patrick Demarchelier, Annie Leibovitz,
Herb Ritts, Francesco Scavullo and Horst. Oribe has
worked with creative directors like Fabien Baron
and Keesha Keeble; make-up artists like François
Nars, Pat McGrath, Kevyn Aucoin and Stephane
Marais; and fashion designers like Gianni Versace,
a mentor who inspired Oribe’s tattoos, and Karl
Lagerfeld, who took the rock and roll hairstylist
under his wing. (bio info from Oribe's website, for
