I've worked with a lot of celebrities over the course of my career, but working with an icon like Cher is definitely one of the highlights — it's a milestone I've always looked forward to.
Her new movie Burlesque is coming out on Thanksgiving, so I had the honor of styling her hair for her December Vanity Fair cover. She's wonderful because even though she's bigger than life, she's very open and great to work with on-set. She makes you feel very creative. To check out celebrity hairstylist Oribe's tips for getting Cher's hair right, just keep reading.
For the November issue of Vogue, Anne Hathaway may talk about nude scenes and relationship deal breakers, but it's her Audrey Hepburn-inspired hairstyle that has all of Team Bella talking. Celebrity stylist Oribe, the creative force behind the twisted updo, says Anne was wonderful to work with. "She's very open, which really translates on camera," he says. "She’s a beautiful subject for a shoot and an amazing girl."
Behind the scenes, Oribe set the hair first before the makeup team got to work, calling the experience a group effort. "Everything works together to make it a great shoot," Oribe explains. "From being in Paris and working at the [Hôtel de] Crillon to seeing the beautiful clothes — the look just comes together from this inspiration. On top of everything, Anne is a major movie star, and all of these aspects propel you to tell a great story with her," he says.
Get Oribe's tips on how you can get Anne's classic-meets-modern hairstyle with lots (and lots) of modern texture, just keep reading.

While attending Stella McCartney's show at Paris Fashion Week, Salma Hayek looked seriously stylish wearing this metallic and black turban. And just last week at Milan Fashion Week, the models at Giorgio Armani walked the runway in navy Tuareg-style turbans. Stylist Oribe gave the Armani models sleek updos underneath, but Salma opted to wear her head wrap with a straight and shiny bob. Turbans have been worn in various cultures for centuries, but are you excited for their return to fashion?
For Jennifer Lopez's look for her upcoming fragrance (her 16th scent!), Love & Glamour, celebrity stylist Oribe gave the star some serious Rita Hayworth-inspired pin curls. And if you're thinking about trying out a retro style for a fun night out — or even for Halloween — it's easy to do.
Start by curling the hair with a one- to one-and-a-half-inch barrel curling iron. Next, place the hair in pin curls, allowing them to set for around an hour. Brush out and finish with a spritz of shine-enhancing product, like Oribe Superfine Hairspray ($34).
Watch out for the scent ($49 to $58), which will include notes of Italian mandarin, water lily, and sandalwood, to launch next month at Macy's.
We're excited to present this article written by top hairstylist Oribe for one of our favorite sites, Daily Makeover!
I recently took Scarlett Johansson from a long hairstyle to a shorter, more modern bob. We decided to take her shorter so she could go lighter for the summer. Her new look is a combination of Brigitte Bardot in the front and '90s Christy Turlington at the bottom.
To get this style, we actually cut Scarlett's hair two separate times. The first time was for a job, when Scarlett had to have a Bardot style. We took 5 to 6 inches off the front. The second cut was for Scarlett's summer look, and we wanted more volume but in a lighter style. We kept all the good qualities about the first cut, and we took length off the bottom to modernize the style.

Celebrity hairstylist Oribe is known for coiffing the tresses of stars like Jennifer Lopez, Cindy Crawford, and Beverly Johnson. At the Oscars, he created a simply chic updo for another A-list star: Penelope Cruz. Of her asymmetric Donna Karan gown, Oribe said, "The dress was a lot of dress, so therefore we just went with not doing too much hair."

Ah, El Niño, the gift that keeps on giving. Unsatisfied with merely splashing expensive gowns with rain, everyone's favorite weather pattern used its humidifying powers to ruin stars' hairstyles. So how did Penélope Cruz wind up looking so perfectly coiffed?
Hairstylist Oribe says it's all in the preparation. Before styling Penélope's hair for the Golden Globes, he used his Imperméable spray ($38) to protect against humidity. By using an anti-
humidity spray before using heat products such as rollers or a styling iron, you can avoid having limp locks. And if you're ever on a red carpet yourself, I suspect that holding your own umbrella like Penelope brings extra karma points, which might make El Niño \\ more forgiving.
