Husband and Wife Duo Joined Oribe Canales’ Team for the Trendsetting Fashion Show in Paris
Jack and Joelle Ray, owners of Raleigh’s award-winning Samuel Cole Salon, turned a dream into reality when they traveled to Paris to participate in Giorgio Armani’s couture Armani Privé show on July 6. Celebrity stylist Oribe Canales, who has styled the hair of Jennifer Lopez and Lady Gaga, selected the pair to be part of his exclusive team of hair stylists for the fall collection’s show because of their expertise and vast knowledge of the hair industry.
“It is one of the highest honors in our industry to be part of the Armani show and we always enjoy working with Oribe who is an industry icon,” Joelle Ray said. “At Samuel Cole, we work hard to deliver a high-level of excellence to our clients. We always appreciate when others take notice and ask us to work with them. We saw some amazing looks in Paris and look forward to incorporating them into our styles this fall.”
The high-energy couture show entertained guests that included celebrities, models and fashion critics from around the globe, such as actresses Megan Fox and Cate Blanchett. Behind the scenes, adrenaline was also pumping. As members of the stylist team, Jack and Joelle helped create sensational hair looks to balance Armani’s fall line. Models with thick, long blonde hair that looked natural and effortlessly beautiful strutted down the runway.
“We were thrilled when Oribe asked us to join him in Paris. He has created amazing hairstyles for many fashion shows, and having him trust us to recreate his looks for the Armani show speaks volumes,” Jack Ray said. “Armani is known for creating styles that people can wear on and off the runway. The blend of unique and classic beauty enhanced the appeal of the clothes in his fall collection.”
The Rays predict that thick, long hair will be a must-have look for the fall season after seeing Armani’s couture line and styling the models’ hair to match. Natural or with the help of extensions, long hair is a great accessory to pair with other fall favorites, such as leggings and sleek trench coats.
