The Miami Beach mansion of Oribe Canales, hairstylist to the stars, is now on the market for $4.75 million. Canales and his husband, Zaki Amin, purchased the five-bedroom estate last year for $4.35 million.
Now, the Mediterranean-style abode has come back on the market after Oribe’s death at the age of 62 in December.
Known simply as Oribe in his professional life, the Cuban-born stylist moved with his family to the United States as a child. He came to New York City and started styling supermodels with the acclaimed fashion photographer Steven Meisel. Later, pop star Jennifer Lopez called on Oribe to create her look for photo shoots, album covers, and music videos. The two worked together for years.
Posting on Instagram following his death, Lopez wrote in part, “He made me feel special and beautiful for so long. … I will miss you. I love you Oribe.”
Naturally, his former retreat is styled to perfection.
