The two day editorial/fashion/backstage styling program offered insight and education on the behind the scenes of magazine, advertising, fashion show and celebrity hairdressing. In addition to demonstrations recreating Oribe's iconic looks from the past three decades, the attendees were given hands-on styling on 150 models. Led by Oribe and his education team, all looks were created using the Oribe line of styling products. The program culminated in a mini fashion show and photoshoot of the finished models.
"I've never been to an event like that before in my life," says Jack Panico, owner of the Panico salons in northern New Jersey. "I feel like all of us here are at a moment in time that is truly special. We are working with an icon and learning things we would never have an opportunity to learn in any other way. We are really making history." We were all wow-ed!
"In my 30 years of hairdressing I have never been to anything that compared to Oribe Backstage... it was unreal. The excitement that we felt throughout the weekend was over the top... we experienced history! "
