Blow-drying is a breeze with the Ibiza Brush
Stylists bristle at the thought of cheap hairbrushes with good reason: they can pull on strands, resulting in split ends. But this one’s natural boar bristles glide gently through hair, boosting shine with each stroke. The lightweight cork handle makes blow-drying a breeze.

Behind the Hair
Hair by Oribe
Oribe styled his longtime friend Naomi Campbell for the 38th anniversary issue of Vogue Brasil. Oribe played up her lighter, sun-kissed hair by giving her a beachy look for the cover and went with voluminous texture for the inside spread.
Get the Look:
1. For the cover style, apply Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse to wet hair and let air dry for incredible crunch-free waves with shine.
2. To take the cover look from beachy to bold, use Thick Dry Finishing Spray to build up larger-than-life volume.
3. Spray with Soft Dry Conditioner Spray to give locks a beautiful, silky finish.

Just in time for summer! The silver line adds pigment to the hair that neutralizes and counteracts yellow tones. The ocean silk technology in this line will also leave your hair shiny and strong and the UV protection will protect your hair from the harsh summer rays! Great for blondes or brunettes. The pigment also provides volume & healthy luster to the hair. This is the most highly pigmented shampoo and conditioner we have seen yet. It has been flying off the shelves.
