The hugely anticipated collaboration between celebrity stylist Oribe and Wella Professionals comes to life in Underground, a presentation of quick-change hairstyling, held at the infamous The Tunnel in NYC during Wella Professionals International Trend Vision weekend. Oribe cuts and coifs iconic styles through the last 10 decades, showcasing his takes on some of the most popular coifs to ever emerge from each decade. From the Gibson Girl to a turquoise-tinted Grace Jones flat-top, the styles rapidly morph at the touch of Oribe's skilled hands. And the haircolor! Salmon pink hyper-bobs and that turquoise flat-top are all treated to Wella Professionals haircolor, expertly applied by Alexandra Matiz and Anthony Palermo. The show culminated in 2011 (in the Part 2 clip, seen below), where a slide of neon hair is contained by numerous bows right down the centerpart of the model's head.
"The education collaboration between Oribe and Wella is off to an amazing start, showcasing amazing hairdressing, excitement and energy," says Daniel Kaner, co-president of Oribe Hair Care.
