Ole Ole Oribe!

One of my agencies sent me to this fabulous hair workshop/extravaganza last week that featured styling instruction by the iconic Oribe himself.  Pronounced "Or-Bay"

If you are not in the hair and beauty industry, he is a styling genius- who has been in the business for more than three decades, dresses to the nines and has that silver fox/ambiguous age thing going for him. My favorite part; he has both arms tattooed with sleeves.  Um,  hot?!  His hands have touched and perfected celeb manes including Heidi Klum, Cindy Crawford and Jennifer Lopez to name a few.   His work is seen in all the major fashion magazines across the globe.  Read more here:  http://oribe.com/index.php/pages/119

With Frank Sinatra blaring, hair spray so thick in the air you could taste it and see it manifesting into clouds under the spotlights, it was ON!
Several hair models were lined up with a stylist, who then performed two looks on the model with Oribe running around to each station, critiquing, praising, rushing and flailing!  Both looks were photographed with Oribe on the sidelines screaming, "TOO PRETTY!" and running up and tugging our hair, smearing our makeup a little bit more and pinning strange accessories to our head.

Two of Oribe's signature products were used during the demo.  The styling spray was sturdy and used for the initial pin curls in the beginning.  Best part about the hairspray:  YOU CAN BRUSH IT OUT.  From there, to create  more volume, my wonderful stylist Sara sprayed Oribe's texturizing spray throughout the hair in 2 in (or so) strips.  She teased a bit and whipped this  reverse Audrey Hepburn inspire up-do in less than 10 minutes:

After the event, I hopped on the A train to get to work, slung drinks for several hours and got home in the wee hours of the morning.  
My hair STILL had drag-queen envied volume.... See!

My Point
You do not need an hour to clip in those extensions or set your hair in rollers to get an extra vavoom volumizing lift.  In less than 10 minutes this fizzy lifting potion will do the trick.

  They gave all the models product that included $39 shampoo and conditioner.  I just started using it but will surely give an update when I run out and have to switch back to my Pantene.  Unless they start paying their models a little bit more.....haa.
