Oribe Passes Away At 62 – 2018

Photo Left: Unknown. Photo Right: Helen Oppenheim

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.

My Intercoiffure Blog On ModernSalon – 2015

It may ruffle a few feathers for this reason or that. But here is my Blog on modernsalon.com featuring photos I took during the Intercoiffure America/Canada Fall Atelier 2015 at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. I couldn’t cover all the great events that took place because I was mostly backstage, nor could I cover all the shows backstage because there was so much going on at the same time, but I hope you like what I did cover. Be warned! Some is highly controversial but also thought provoking.   To read the Blog, look at the photos, click HERE   (Comments, Likes, an Upvote, Share with Credits are all welcome)
