[/caption] "When I was styling Anne for the November cover..." That's Anne as in Hathaway and cover as in Vogue. And that's how Oribe grabs the attention of a room full of wide-eyed stylists - some of whom weren't born when he was learning to tease wigs on Diana Ross. The legendary stylist, who has worked on every major magazine, with every important photographer and on every supermodel and A-list star from Kate Moss to Jennifer Lopez, swooped in to the Jon Charles Salon in Wayzata this week to educate staff on the Oribe product line, which the salon just picked up. Oribe demonstrated a few up-dos, like a variation on the "princess" 'do he did for Anne. "Up dos can be so contrived - they're aging. I wanted to take a young approach." But despite all the fanfare and oohing and aahing at his every shake of the hairspray, Oribe keeps it real. "It's a ponytail - pushed forward, with a fake piece in back and a couple pieces of crap in it. This is fun!"
