was acquired by Kao USA

Founded by famed hairstylist Oribe Canales, with Daniel Kaner and Tevya Finger of Luxury Brand Partners, Oribe Hair Care combines 10+ years of styling heritage to deliver performance-rooted products with world class innovation. The Company has grown from a prestige haircare brand into a global beauty authority that offers hair care, skincare, body care, make-up, tools, and accessories. 

Oribe was one of the first premium haircare brands to transcend channel boundaries, effectively spanning a market-leading footprint of 2,000 high-end salons, as well as luxury retailers and e-tailers. Blending innovative formulations, top‐performing products, award‐winning packaging, and unparalleled education, Oribe has become a renowned beauty authority for experienced stylists and taste‐driven consumers alike. 

Oribe received substantial inbound interest from strategic buyers while working with The Sage Group. The Company ultimately completed the transaction with Kao Corporation, a global beauty and consumer goods company based in Japan. The business will continue to be operated under current management. 

Sage’s bankers displayed a calm, empathetic intelligence throughout our purchase. They intuitively understood the dynamics of our complex situation and were able to deal strategically with a disparate group of partners to get the deal done.
