Hairstylist Oribe Dies
Celebrity Hairstylist Oribe Canales has passed away. The Cuban-born hairstylist to the stars reportedly suffered liver and kidney failure in a hospital after going to New York for cancer treatment last month, his husband, Zaki Amin, said. He was 62. Messages and tributes for the handsome stylist, who at one point also owned a salon in Miami Beach, flooded Instagram Monday, from peers including Ric Pipino, Frederic Fekkai and Sally Hershberger, to celebrities Jennifer Lopez and Cindy Crawford. Oribe started an eponymous hair care company in 2007 alongside industry veterans Teyva Finger and Daniel Kaner. The brand, which operated under Luxury Brand Partners, was sold to Kao in December 2017.

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Launches Clinical Grade Collection, Taps New President

The NYC-based dermatologist, Dr. Dennis Gross, has developed a new skin care collection for veteran users, Clinical Grade. The advanced line will include three products, the first of which is Intense Pigment Lifting [IPL] Dark Spot Correcting Serum. The IPL Dark Spot Correcting Serum has been clinically proven to work as fast as leading prescriptions in improving overall dark spots. “This formula is a game-changer. It’s the ultimate hyperpigmentation antidote – clinically proven to work as fast as prescription-strength hydroquinone-without the risk,” said Dr. Gross. Formulas include 10% L-asorbic acid, that when combined with other antioxidants and brightening ingredients, provide maximum benefits. Results appear in as soon as two weeks; in eight weeks clinicals show the serum is proven to work as fast as 4% hydroquinone in improving dark spots and overall skin appearance. The serum launches in Sephora in January and will retail for $92.Resurfacing Liquid Peel and Deep Wrinkle Face Serum will round out the collection later in 2019. Also, the company has hired a new President, Eric Coles, formerly of Stella Rising. Eric will report to Carrie Gross, CEO.
