46 | BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD | NOVEMBER 2018 Live & Learn/Milestones Oribe celebrates 10 years of shaking up the haircare scene with an unrelenting focus on boutique branding, product passion and top-notch performance. —TM D aniel Kaner, president and cofounder of Oribe (@oribe), always knew his longtime friend, celeb stylist Oribe Canales, was "a brand waiting to happen." Matched with a vision of creating an elevated, boutique-style haircare line that would stand out as best in class, the Oribe brand was born—but only after years of pinning down exactly what that might look like. "Oribe, the man, is all about performance, and we wanted to take risks with formulations to create something gutsy and artistic," says Kaner. "We fi rst isolated the fragrance, crafting a fi ne perfume, and tested it with hairdressers. We knew we had something really special, and people reacted." Indeed, thanks to a vibe of unabashed luxury and backed by its effortlessly cool namesake stylist, salons jumped on board. Though Kaner still considers the brand relatively young and constantly pushes its talented team toward further innovation and improvements, word has spread like wildfi re. Now a decade in business, Oribe elicits cult-like love from stylists and consumers in 40 countries worldwide. "We're an organization of constant improvement, and at the center of what we do is creating a successful path for our salon owners—we know them by name," Kaner asserts. "Nothing comes before them, and though we're very grateful and proud to celebrate 10 years, we're still learning together."
