When a haircare line describes itself as “for the Hair-Obsessed”, you can be certain the award-winning team at Murphy Gozzard are going to be interested. As true hair artisans who are meticulous about our work, we look for only the best products from like-minded companies. Created alongside legendary stylist Oribe Canales in 2008, the Oribe brand blends craftsmanship, performance and decades of styling experience from the top of the editorial and salon worlds to create a new category in hair care. As the best hairdressers in Paddington we are proud to have this best-selling, award-winning brand that has sparked deep connections with its consumers sitting pretty in our Sydney salon.

At the outset, Canales felt strongly that his products should push the boundaries of performance. He wanted stylists and consumers to not just see — but feel — the difference. The founders worked with innovation labs and specialty collaborators around the world to create custom formulations that truly surpassed anything in the marketplace. Sadly, Canales passed away late last year but his much loved brand lives on in his name.

The brand is a line of luxurious products that is unique in every category: gels that condition, oils that hold, sprays that don’t flake, skincare-grade shampoos that prep hair for styling and gently balance the scalp, masques that have the richness and body of a lavish moisturizing cream. And that’s just the beginning. Each product is tested extensively backstage and on set to ensure that it outperforms everything else.

While the products are ultra-high-tech, the formulations are clean and modern — formulated without parabens and sodium chloride. All the products are gluten-free, cruelty-free, color and keratin treatment safe and have UV protection for hair, giving them a huge tick of approval from all of us. Oribe claim that they perform like magic- and we agree!

While most companies select a scent from a stock fragrance library, Oribe Hair Care was the first to use a fine fragrance in its hair products. The brand collaborated with a legendary 19th-century perfume house to blend its signature fragrance, Côte d’Azur. Embodying the glamour and warmth of the French Riviera, the bright, seductive, shared scent awakens with hints of sun-drenched Calabrian bergamot, Sicilian orange, Aomori apples and leafy greens. Sandalwood, vetiver and crisp amber lend their soft, woody notes, while tuberose and white butterfly jasmine, from Oribe’s native Cuba, create a sensuous and invigorating experience. The fragrance runs through the line to compose a beautiful experience for the hair — and spirit.

Next time you pop into the salon, we’d love to introduce you to this amazing product line and find the perfect Oribe products for you. Once you experience the world of Oribe, there is no going back.
