The Kao Salon Division NZ has become the official distributor of prestige hair brand Oribe Hair Care in New Zealand. Since 2008, Oribe has set the standard for hair care within the prestige category. Blending award-winning packaging and its signature Côte d’Azur fragrance, the collection is designed with talented hairdressers, sophisticated salons and discerning customers in mind.
In 2018, Oribe Hair Care was acquired by Kao Corporation, with co-founder Daniel Kaner named president of the newly acquired entity. Oribe will join the Kao Salon Division portfolio of professional brands, including Goldwell, a full service line of stylist exclusive, premium hair products designed for professional needs, and the KMS line of globally inspired hair care and styling products for creative stylists and their clients.
“The addition of luxury hair brand Oribe to our New Zealand Salon Division is a great coup for the Kao Corporation. We now have three of the most coveted hair brands to offer our salon partners and consumers, Oribe, Goldwell and KMS. Each are innovators in product design, efficacy and ingredients, adored the world over by stylists and consumers alike. We are excited to support our salon partners with this powerful trio,”
Jane Wicks, General Manager, Kao Salon Division New Zealand.
