PORTFOLIO

Oribe Hair Care was founded by renowned editorial and celebrity hairstylist Oribe and beauty industry veterans Daniel Kaner and Tev Finger with the goal of creating a new kind of hair company, one that was designed with the most talented salon professionals and the most discriminating customers in mind. When developing the line, we didn’t want to compromise on any detail. We leveraged skin care technology and natural actives to deliver high-performance, treatment-based products—all while never forgetting that healthy hair is the underpinning for sexy, glamorous styling. Each product has been tested at length on set, backstage and in the salon to ensure that it delivers results, leaving us with a best-in-class collection that truly meets the needs of the hair-obsessed.

The KEVIN.MURPHY range of shampoos, conditioners, treatments and styling aids, is an indulgence of runway looks and natural aromatherapy catered for every hair type. The products are made from renewable and sustainable resources whenever possible, using pure essential oils, plant extracts and natural antioxidants. 
All KEVIN.MURPHY hair products are sulphate and paraben free.

Your hair is your best accessory.

When it looks amazing, so do you. REDKEN salon professional haircolor and styling products offer you versatile and customized options to deliver the look you desire.
