Hair Advice From Jennifer Lopez's Stylist, Oribe

Jennifer Lopez's Stylist's Top Hair Dos (and 3 Hair Don'ts)

Not only has world-renowned hairstylist Oribe styled countless Vogue editorials and covers (last year alone he did seven front-pagers!), but he's styled everyone from Naomi Campbell to Lauren Hutton over the course of his 34-year-long career. Most famously, however, is the work he has done with Jennifer Lopez.

Oribe launched his eponymous hair care in 2009, and as he said at a recent San Francisco event at Festoon Salon, "Hair is an instrument; you've got to take care of it." So to see more of his expert tips on the dos and don'ts of achieving hair perfection, keep reading.

DO:

  • Be reasonable: "Be reasonable what you want. Stay in your world," Oribe says. So if you have fine hair but want tons of volume, you can have it. "We can give it to you, but stay realistic," he adds.
  • Keep in mind: "Pretty hair never goes out of style."
  • Communicate clearly: "Glamour means different things to different people," he says. And in turn, "short" means different things to different people. "Communicate [with your stylist] well, and bring pictures," Oribe advises.
  • Think silk: "Hair is like fabric," he says. "It's almost like ironing a beautiful dress every day." And that's why, he repeats, "You've got to take care of it."
  • Feel comfortable with your stylist: "I think it's important that you feel good at a hairdresser, that you feel confident. It's about women feeling comfortable in a salon." And besides, "A good hairdresser will learn to work with your flaws."

DON'T

  • Be a slave to fashion: Pass on trends that don't work for you. "Make sure you wear what makes you feel good and makes you look good," he says.
  • Use dry shampoo: "Dry shampoo feels like a powdered wig," Oribe says. Instead, he likes his own Dry Texturizing Spray ($20 to $39) as an alternative. It gives volume and texture, all while absorbing oil.
  • Wear your hair stick-straight: "It looks like wood . . . and it's completely out of fashion." Aim for volume, body, and a whole lot of confidence, instead.
