Music Man

Oribe has worked with several renowned musicians throughout his career. 揗usicians are usually a lot of fun, Oribe says. 揟hey抣l often let you play and experiment with their look. Sometimes, like with an album cover, you have to be 憃n persona, but many are willing to take risks for other shoots. Oribe notes that while he likes to listen to the singer抯 albums for inspiration, that抯 not always the soundtrack on set: 揗any of them don抰 want to hear themselves!

Along with working with musicians for shoots, Oribe has also seen several of them in his salons over the years, including Cyndi Lauper, Boy George, Karen Carpenter and Rosanna Cash. 揑 used to cut Rosanna抯 hair, and she gave me tickets to see her dad at Carnegie Hall, he recalls.

So, who are his music icons when it comes to incredible hair? He lists Elvis, Madonna, KISS, Queen, Stevie Nicks, Nancy Sinatra in the 60s and, more recently, Miley Cyrus and Beyonce (揝he always knocks it out, he says).

From Sinatra to Cher to Miley Cyrus, Oribe shares some thoughts and memories from working with music抯 top acts. Scroll through the slideshow above to see the work and read his comments.
