OribeHis Work:

His session, celebrity and salon work span decades and his fashion force sways the world. Creating skyscraper hair and iconic images through collaborations with the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Gianni Versace, and Commes des Garçons, he proved hair is integral to image. There's not a supermodel or celeb of note he hasn't styled, not a magazine of merit he hasn't covered.

Why He's Influential: From era-defining work with photographer Steven Meisel to the ‘92 Chanel show (when for the first time, hair got as much ink as the runway fashions) to the masterminding of grunge hair, Oribe took the lead. With Meisel and make-up artist François Nars, he created the supermodel. One of the first Americans invited to style the European collections and creator of J.Lo's persona, he sets the beauty benchmark.

Who Influences Him: "Alexandre de Paris for his bold, amazing work, Ara Gallant, and Christiaan for his rebellious take on hair styling. Photographers like Steven Meisel taught me a tremendous amount about fashion. Gianni Versace taught me extravagance, decadence and showmanship; Azzedine Alaia taught me about the shape of a woman, and the ultimate in French chic; Karl Lagerfeld showed me a freedom about fashion."
