If you happen to be one of MODERN SALON's nearly 90,000 Facebook fans, no doubt you've witnessed our addiction to Pinterest—where users create pinboards to collect and socially share images and articles that inspire them.

We love using the newly launched social media site to "repin" hair styles, nail designs, fashion, salon decor ideas, and all things beauty. Recently, we came across this braid on Pinterest—which was originally pinned from weheartit.com.

Alison Alhamed | October 1, 2018

To celebrate the brand's 10-year anniversary, Oribe Hair Care invited artist and educator Adam Livermore on set to show how 10 of the original products are still relevant 10 years after Oribe’s launch: gels that condition, oils that hold, sprays that don’t flake, skin-care-grade shampoos that prep hair for styling and gently balance the scalp and masques that have the richness and body of a lavish moisturizing cream.
