Remembering Oribe Canales

Oribe Canales

We were so sad to hear, over the holidays, of the passing of Oribe Canales. His products are go-to for all our stylists (in their own hair too!) And pretty much anyone who has stopped into Halo has floated out surrounded by the famous Oribe scent.

Oribe Hair Care products allow us to bring glamour to each blow out. We are proud that our work helps continue his legacy – especially with any client requesting BIG HAIR!

Mr. Canales was beloved the world over by backstage professionals and his expansive celebrity clientele and will be remembered as a master of his craft, conjuring the kind of unapologetic glamour that spoke to the world’s most alluring women. And yet perhaps it was his relationship with Jennifer Lopez—who, after long admiring Oribe’s work in Vogue, hired him for her debut album, 1999’s On the 6—that transformed him from fashion insider to Hollywood go-to and eventually a household name in his own right; the pair would go on to travel the world together for more than a decade.

“He was a legend,” Lopez said, “I was sixteen on the train reading about him in Vogue, and he made such an impression on me that twelve years later, when I was making my first album, I remembered his name.” She also recalled his vivaciousness, as well as his good looks: “He had the slicked hair and the tattoos — he was handsome and full of life.”

Mr. Canales introduced Oribe Hair Care, a high-end line of shampoos and hair styling products, in 2008. This award-winning hair care line fulfills the demands of the most discerning hairstylists and clients by delivering a never-before-experienced level of performance, with an intoxicating signature scent and accessory-like packaging.

“He helped me understand of how the fashion part of things empowered women, and that when women felt beautiful, they were limitless and they could do anything,” Ms. Lopez said. “He glamorized women, and he made them feel sexy by the way he did their hair and by the way he loved them, and I felt loved by him.”

Savvy Sleeper Pillowcases for Nighttime Hair Pampering

Posted by on September 27, 2018 in Products | Comments Off on Savvy Sleeper Pillowcases for Nighttime Hair Pampering


“Welcome to the slumber party!” Halo now carries White Russian Savvy Sleepers luxury satin, anti–aging pillow cases!

Satin pillow cases are smoother for skin and help prevent split ends or hair breakage while you sleep.

But not all satin pillow cases are created equal; low quality polyester satin blends tend to be very light-weight, look ultra-shiny and slip right off your pillow. They can feel cheap and irritating against your skin.

Savvy Sleepers pillowcases use 100% pure polyester satin, making them anti-aging for hair and skin. Even, dermatologist recommended for preventing wrinkles. Halo stylists recommend them for preventing hair breakage. Savvy Sleepers satin has a soothing matte finish with the highest standard of quality stitching for unparalleled benefits for hair and skin.

You take the time to care for your hair. Shouldn’t your pillowcases do the same all night long? Your locks will glide over the smooth satin so you’ll wake kink– and break–free.

• Compared to a “Nightly Spa Treatment” as the smooth surface protects your skin from deep sleep creases that can become permanent over time.

• Decreased hair breakage and split ends.

• Dermatologist recommended for preventing wrinkles.

• Secret pocket for hair ties, eye cream, lavender, etc.

• Hypoallergenic. Tested on highly sensitive skin and were found to be less irritating for our testers suffering from rosacea, eczema, and acne, and those using Accutane medication or Retin-A.

• 100% pure polyester satin.

• European standard and king sizes.

• Machine wash cold — tumble dry low or air dry. No dry cleaning needed!

• Soothing matte finish with the highest standard of quality stitching in unisex shades.

• Satisfaction guaranteed! | Instagram

Embracing Naturally Wavy Hair

Posted by on August 14, 2018 in How-To, Products | Comments Off on Embracing Naturally Wavy Hair

Wavy Hair

As a friend of ours – – recently posted, “When your hair is wavy/curly, sometimes there’s a fine line between ‘messy, romantic waves’ and ‘evil witch living in Azkaban’”

Our partners at SEVEN Haircare to the rescue with, Top 5 tips for embracing naturally wavy hair:

1. Step away from the shampoo.

According to Stylist Eric Barras, SEVEN consultant, “If you have long, short, or medium hair that is wavy in its texture – not quite a curl, not quite straight – the first step is not over washing. Allowing your hair to be a few days old will get you the most from your texture.” Before following his advice, invest in dry shampoo. It’s your new #1 necessity.

2. Don’t over do it.

Less is more. DON’T overuse products. Let a little go a long way! To bring out some natural bounce, add SEVEN haircare’s light STYLE cream to towel dried hair, layering in spritzes of BEACH spray for extra texture. Lightly scrunch and diffuse with the cuticle, not against it.

3. Give it a boost.

Try an easy braid to emphasize the curl when you release it. Or, Eric says to use classic hot rollers for “an interior boost to your waves.” Take random sections and roll from the root halfway out towards the ends, going with the natural direction of the wave. Let it sit until cool. Take out, and tousle into place with your fingers.

4. Coax it to curl.

If your hair is on the short side, Eric suggests combing the waves into place while your hair is damp. “Let it get 80% dry and then apply your styling cream or whatever hair product that you want to use for separation and definition, and fluff and finger shape into place.

5. Don’t forget the hold.

Perfect waves ebb and flow. You’ll need just a little hold to remind them to stay perfect. Try working in a cocktail of DIAMOND for sunshine sparkle mixed with a dab of PUTTY to increase and hold the created texture.

Want more? Visit The experts at SEVEN Haircare have plenty to say!

Interested in any of the products mentioned here? Ask for Halo to use them with your next blow out – or bring them home for some DIY. You can call Halo at 800-425-6179 and have your products waiting for you – and if we don’t have what you need, we’ll order.

Thinning Hair Solutions…

Posted by on July 30, 2018 in Hair | Comments Off on Thinning Hair Solutions…

Thinning hair is a concern for women and men alike, but it’s important to understand the different types and causes in order to promote stronger, healthier hair. Reactional hair thinning often results from factors such as stress, dietary deficiencies, post-pregnancy hormonal changes or medications, while progressive hair thinning is usually genetic. We off proven botanically-based solutions – free of minoxidil or finasteride – for both types of hair thinning.

Our hair is constantly renewing itself. A single hair emerges, grows, then falls out, as part of a hair cycle that repeats itself about 25 times during our lifetime. It occurs in three stages:

1. The Anagen Phase

The anagen phase, or growth phase, lasts about two to three years in men and six to eight years in women. Under normal conditions, about 85% of our hairs are in the anagen phase. During this phase, the vascular network that supplies the hair root is particularly well-developed around the follicle.

2. The Catagen Phase

The catagen phase, or regression phase, which is fairly brief (two to three weeks), is when the hair follicle becomes inactive. The hair matrix dies and although the hair does not grow any more, it remains rooted in the follicle.

3. The Telogen Phase

The telogen phase is when the hair is in its rest phase. The hair is shed and replaced by another hair, whereby a new anagen phase begins. This period of renewal lasts approximately three months and explains why we normally lose around one hundred hairs every day.


If you are experiencing sudden, temporary hair loss, which is known as reactional thinning hair, this René Furterer video is for you. Triggers may be stress or emotional shock, a restricted or poor diet, fatigue, childbirth, illness, medications, overprocessed hair, or scalp tension due to unprofessional styling.

  • Usually becomes visible 2-3 months after a specific event.
  • Hairs abruptly enter the catagen phase before completing the growth phase causing hair to shed.
  • More prevalent in women and can occur on the entire head rather than being isolated to certain areas.

Ask your Halo stylist about these René Furterer products:

Hereditary or hormonal hair loss is known as progressive thinning hair. Here’s a video with more info.

  • Often takes up to six months to become noticeable and is generally genetically predetermined.
  • Women tend to experience a widening of the part and thinning patches.
  • Men tend to see thinning around the hairline and on the crown of the head.

Ask your Halo stylist about these René Furterer products:
Triphasic Progressive Concentrated Serum addresses the three main factors of this type of hair thinning with one weekly treatment. This leave-in, 3-phase drug-free* treatment addresses the 3 factors responsible for progressive thinning hair to help preserve existing hair and visibly redensify thin, sparse hair.
