Sad news.  The one and only Oribe Canales has passed away at the age of 62.  I knew him way back when  he had a salon in New York City, and before.  More details to come.  Meanwhile here is the Daily Mail story – Click 

Here I am with Oribe in 2014, at the Waldorf Astoria, after an Intercoiffure AC event. And here is an original rare photo of one of his original ideas which I took in 1997 – He created drawn on kiss curls with a beaded sculpture decorating the back of the head for a NYFW show which took place in his salon, for Manolo.

Buzz Buzz. Gisele Bundchen's New Crop – 2014

OMG, what has supermodel Gisele Bundchen done with her glorious tresses?   She has buzzed them off, that’s what. The new buzz cut can be seen in the new Balenciaga ad for Alexander Wang. I think she will regret this crop. It is, in my opinion, unflattering and her face needed the great hair she had. Or the great hair she will grow from this edgy but ugly shorn style.   Watch for some new short hairstyles as Gisele’s hair grows … Unless this is a brilliant Photoshop manipulation or a clever wig, as suggested in www.dailymail.co.uk.com   Whichever, Gisele Bundchen, Alexander Wang and Balanciaga will get lots of exposure for their latest ad campaign.     For more on the supermodel’s new look, click the Daily Mail article by Erin Clements

(The more I look at it and the more I think about it, I think this may well be a brilliant Photoshop crop – and supercool idea!)

Gisele is at the World Cup, July 13,  2014, with her long hair.  So definitely not cut.
