Oribe Crème for Style and Oribe Maximista Thickening Spray
Remember Remember Dynasty? Remember Dallas (yes, it's coming back to our screens, but we're talking about the 80s version). Remember fah-bu-lous 'big hair', from that decade, generally...? We predict it's about to make a comeback, aided and abetted by these two products. Jo offered to be a (human) guinea pig when these were demo-ed recently, and walked out with hair like a Park Avenue princess: all va-va-voom and tra-la-lah. (More volume, actually, than a sound system pumpin' from a boy racer's pimped Ford Fiesta.)
Oribe (say it 'Or-Bay') is a a legendary New York hairdresser who's coiffed his fair share of lunching ladies, over the years - as well as J-Lo, Oprah, Kate Winslet and just about any other famous bonce. He's pretty much synonymous with Big Hair, actually.
His vtamin-enriched Crème for Style is a styling cream that can be worked through dry or wet hair, before blow-drying. (So it can be used to 'reinflate' an existing 'do' that's dropped.) Volumista's spritzed onto wet hair only, which can then be blown-dry to bigness And we're talking B-I-G. (It's also thermal-protective, helping to minimise damage from your drier.)
But we think these products would also be a godsend not just to catwalk hair stylists and image-conscious celebrities, but all women who suffer from flat or droopy hair, or hair which starts out oomph-y but drops as the day wears on. The range is luxe-priced (and luxe-packaged, for hairstyling products), but will probably pay for itself in no time in money not spent on blow-drys.
