A "huge Oribe Canales" fan writes in to let us know that the legendary hairdresser's product line is now being carried at West Village apothecary C.O. Bigelow.
I have been waiting a long time for his line to come out (probably dates me but I used to go to his first salon on the UWS when it was still called Parachute)... then what happened? I am walking in the W.Village and the Bigelow windows are all Oribe!!! Turns out the brand just launched and Bigelow (the arbiter of all things beauty cool) were one of the first to scoop up the line.
I have to tell you: I bought 5 products from the line (the most beautiful packaging I have seen in a long time) and it is UNREAL! I had someone on the subway tell me how shiny my hair is - that doesn't happen. Anyway I thought the windows were very cool and the product rocked - so wanted to share.Right now we are only turning up one Oribe product on the store's website, so fellow Canales fans will have to journey to the West Village boutique or shop on Oribe.com for the rest of the line.
