I’m a hair fanatic. With that said, I’ve been an Oribe obsessionist since his heydays styling the real supermodels of our time — Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford and Linda Evangelista. I’ve oohed and aahed over his infinite Vogue covers and salivated every time J. Lo hit a red carpet styled by him. So when offered a day with the shear genius, I basically fainted, went to hair heaven and got my shit together.

First off, this silver fox has swag and good looks for days, so I obviously proposed marriage found it rather difficult to concentrate on our conversation about his Cuban roots, his aspirations to act, and how he hit the big time in New York. “Miami is home for me — it’s where my salon is and it’s what keeps me grounded,” Oribe says. When not jetting off to L.A. to tame Mariah Carey’s mane for American Idol or flying to Milan for the newest Dolce & Gabbana campaign, Oribe can be found on South Beach with his three dogs (all some form of the poodle breed) and partner — or at his namesake Lincoln Road-based salon now in its 18th year.

Oribe gave me a haircut (yes, as in the dude that just styled Heidi Klum for the Oscars!) as we chatted about his affinity for suspenders, koi tattoos and his next big project, Backstage: La Fama. He then passed me on to colorist Sharon Torres who is a boss at  balayage (hair painting).

The end result? A massive crush, a broken heart and great hair. Hair so good, it hurts.

Oribe, 1627 Euclid Avenue, Miami Beach; (305) 538-8768.
